There are two things that most women want from a tote: they want it to look good, and they want plenty of space. This bag checks both of those boxes. It also has dozens of pattern options, so no matter what your style is, there’s one for you. In addition to the straps to connect to luggage, it also has a reinforced bottom so that it can stand freely when you put it down.
I’m the kind of person who doesn’t like to have a bag with one giant pocket. All my stuff gets messed up and lost, and I can never find anything. I love this bag because it has plenty of dividers so that I know where everything is. It also comes with a detachable strap that I’m particularly fond of. I don’t like extra straps if I’m not using them (they get in the way), but if I were using this bag on its own I’d absolutely want to wear it over my shoulder. I love having the choice of how to use it.
This bag is not fooling around. It’s definitely inching its way from a tote into a duffel, but it still looks incredibly classy and is quite sturdy. You can even unzip around the bottom to access a special shoe compartment that is particularly handy. I also love that it has quite a few pockets along the inside for devices, cords, wallet, and other things you want close at hand.
This bag is not here to turn heads. It’s here to be a very good bag, and it does just that. It has five mesh pockets on the inside, a double zipper, handles and a cross body strap, multiple outside pockets, and still can slide onto your luggage for ease. Oh and did we mention the two waterbottle pockets?
On top of all this it has a 12 month guarantee, which is pretty buckwild for a tote bag. All the reviews say that it’s incredibly durable though, so you probably won’t need to test that out.
I truly hate having large bags taking up all of the storage space in my house. This bag solves that problem easily: it folds up for easy storage. When it’s in use, it’s still nice and solid (plus surprisingly spacious) so you don’t have to worry about rips or tears. I also like that the material is lightweight so I’m not heaving around a heavy bag all day long.
This bag is ready for a vacation, and so are you. I love the bright patterns and colors. But even better: you can use this bag as a tote with the handles on top, or simply move them around to the back and you’ve got an adorable backpack. It has plenty of pockets, and multiple waterbottle spaces, plus an additional crossbody strap if you don’t want to carry it by the handles or wear it as a backpack. It’s wildly versatile.
I’m a big fan of the sleek style of this bag. It makes me feel like one of the Men in Black. But perhaps more important than allowing me to live out my odd daydreams, it’s also really sturdy and a great bag. You can use the inside pocket for clothes, and it even has a liner to separate clean from dirty. It has a great front pocket for accessories and a laptop compartment. You can even hide the zipper easy to make it more difficult for anyone to get at your stuff.
It’s the perfect little overnight bag.
This bag is really spacious while still having plenty of divided pockets and a really nice look. I especially like that you can easily adjust the straps to fit your needs, and that the over shoulder strap is removable. Here’s the sentence that really sold me (from a review): “It’s surprisingly spacious when you stuff it full and also like an over sized purse when it’s empty.”
This is exactly the line that I want my carry on to walk.
I absolutely adore how this small bag has taken a lot of the features from full-size luggage and used them to make this tote so practical. It has a dedicated shoe compartment, and the large inner section has its own zipper pocket as well. It works great for fitting everything you need for a weekend: laptop, a few changes of clothing, books, and your personal items.
It also fits perfectly under the seat, so you can use it as your small carry-on while putting something larger in the overhead bin.
The first thing that goes out in all my bags is the zippers, which makes them basically useless. This bag will not give you that problem: it’s got some seriously heavy duty fabric and industrial looking zips that just keep going. The fabric is also stain and spill resistant, which I find pretty important when traveling because I inevitably end up dropping things while I’m trying to eat a last little snack at my gate.
