Shoulder bag with hand handle...

Do you know of any alternatives to this bag? It's just a shoulder bag but the handle on the top is important to me. Available in the UK, ideally less expensive than this. Thanks!

The wifi connection at this coffee shop is horrible so I can't find a specific example, but I know that Timbuk2 has bags with that same form factor and top handle.

Seconding Timbuk2.
I carry one most days with that same form factor of shoulder strap with a solid and usable handle on top. Works great, best bag I’ve ever had on every metric.

That looks a lot like the army surplus shoulder bags we all used to have in school (possibly one person got one and started a trend in our school, I don’t know If this was a widespread thing).

Anyway, £9 is a lot cheaper than £99.

Would you like canvas or leather? I also love this style of bag and have a battered leather cross body one from Debenhams that's about ~30 years old that I keep coming back to so I'll watch the answers with interest.

If you search for a variation of the American and British terminology with something like grabbable tote shoulder bag (maybe satchel too) you'll come up with quite a few options. I'd also look on Ebay, you can sometimes get good brands like Radley for a lot less than new.

(Another search term: grabbable bowling bag handbag)

I think of that as a satchel with shoulder strap.

How about this one on, which is only £27.

Actually, there are loads of options on Amazon.

This one, similar to the one I linked to above but cheaper.

This one looks more like the one you linked to.

Vintage style.
