Mylar-coated, odor-resistant lining to keep interior contents discreet

Attached LED light to illuminate your lock and bag contents

Launched in 2023 by co-founders Annie Krasnow and Suzie Weidling, CITIZEN HYDE is the first-of-its-kind brand for people on the go, effectively blending functional style, security, privacy, and convenience. The duo’s goal is to design and sell products that are intentionally and inclusively created for not only themselves, but for everyone. “We launched CITIZEN HYDE to address an unmet need in the marketplace—an easily portable, stylish, and secure solution for concealing and protecting valuables of different types,” said Krasnow. “These bags hide phones, wallets, cash, and medicinal products—the list goes on. We believe that citizens should enjoy the peace of mind that our bags bring to the table without sacrificing modern design, giving them something secure that they are proud to wear.”

The Dylan

Another reason to love the brand is The CITIZEN HYDE Initiative. The registered B-Corp company (one that demonstrates high standards of social and environmental performance) pledges a portion of proceeds from every purchase to support community nonprofit organizations focused on human rights, equality, and healthcare.
