Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Tote I prefer crossbody and totes and this Madewell bag is my favorite. The leather is high quality. I picked this up in NYC in May and have used the heck out of it this summer. It is a workhorse and it is a classic style and color. Goes with everything and will not go out of style. Love, love, love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Summer Tote I've been eyeing madewell's totes for a while now but finally decided to try this one and the staple transport tote, but this is the one I kept. Honestly, I'm fairly petite and the transport tote was just too much bag for me; plus, I tend to carry just the amount of stuff that fits well in this bag. The leather is really nice and soft and the color is great for summer (and matches well with madewell's flat brown sandals). It has the usual madewell pockets for a cell phone and other small things and a zippered pocket inside for loose bits. I can fit my laptop in it; I can fit a binder in it; and it is easy to pull things out of when running around town. Perhaps my only complaint is that the "crossbody" strap described is definitely too short on me to be a crossbody. It works just find on my shoulder though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! This is a wonderful tote! It holds much more than expected. I am a petite person and it looks great on. This is a hard combination to find. The leather is soft, yet durable. Very beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite everyday tote I absolutely love everything about this tote; the quality, the size, the color...everything! I am getting married in May and got in monogrammed with my new initials, so no turning back now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday Tote! I recently got this tote in the mail (in black) and fell in love with it. The quality is great and the design is simple enough to match any outfit. I already got compliments from this tote and I love the fact that I can make it my own (by adding my initials).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classis style. The Slim Camden Tote is a lovely alternative to the Transport tote which I value very much but which can get a bit sloppy looking because it does not have any structure. Camden does provide the necessary structure to keep it looking very classy and classic for days when I want a more polished look. Went into the store intent on getting the camel color(which is very nice) but ended up walking back 10 minutes later to exchange it for the black. The clip off shoulder strap is a nice addition but wish it was silver hardware instead of gold ( just a pet peeve with me). The bag is smaller than the Transport tote but still very generously sized. I know totes are very popular now and this one is close to the top of the list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Functional and Smart Tote This tote is so practical and, at the same time, chic. It can be used as a book bag for a student, a travel bag for a vacationer, a bag to hold an iPad or computer and homework assignments to grade for a teacher. It's got a fun, striped lining, and pockets, plus a zip pouch, to hold the little things one needs to stash. It's made of quality material, making the tote durable. The color is a perfect neutral.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lining not as pictured, great bag, long strap is scratchy I just received this tote and I was super excited about the cute striped lining. However the tote I received has tan lining. Not sure if this is a deal-breaker for me yet, but I'm going to contact customer service and see what's up. I love a pretty lining, it makes the bag for me sometimes! Also, the long strap is scratchy as another reviewer pointed out. Most leather bags this size are 2-3x this price, so I wasn't surprised that it wasn't absolutely perfectly soft leather all over. The bag is, but the long strap is not soft.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Timeless Bag This bag is so classic and just the right size. It is big enough to hold my wallet, cosmetic bag, tablet, umbrella, et cetera... Yet, slim enough to not dwarf my petite frame (or knock people over when I carry it.) The leather isn't fantastic quality, but the body of the bag is thick and soft. As with all leather totes, this bag can get heavy. The only problem with that is, the shoulder strap is very rough which makes it very uncomfortable if one is going bare-shouldered. The hardware is a more antiquated brass color, rather than gold. I would have preferred silver, but the hardware is so hidden, that it doesn't really matter. Overall, this bag was a great purchase.
