If the vibrant, rainbowlike stripes on these waterproof nylon totes don’t put a smile on your face, perhaps the knowledge that 20 percent of their net proceeds go toward various medical conditions will.

When you purchase the orange-handled duffle, you’ll be helping a traumatic-brain-injury organization and can select one of three charities at checkout: MedStar National Rehabilitation Network (nrhrehab.org), Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (iava.org), or ReMIND (remind.org).
