The Medium Transport Tote

The Medium Transport Tote is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staple piece Beautiful bag that is extremely well made. This mustard yellow color goes with almost everything in my wardrobe. The only thing that conserns me is that suede is rather gentle material and in a long run it’s not very practical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This purse is a classic and will never go out style. The color makes it unique but wearable. A great price for something you will have for so long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed I'm pretty much in love with this bag. Very high quality and has that new leather smell. The blue color is unique but works well with my muted wardrobe color palette. My only suggestion is that it would be great if there was some sort of closure at the large opening of the bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gold Tone is Gorgeous! I'd been researching and keeping my eye on the Medium Transport Tote for about a year now, and as soon as I got the email about the yellow color, I bought it immediately. The yellow is a beautiful, rich golden mustard color. And the leather is SO SOFT. It's much less stiff than my black Medium Transport Tote in that it doesn't totally stand straight up on its own. But that's a good thing - it's beautiful. It looks much more expensive than it was, and the gold monogram adds a nice touch. Able to fit a 13" laptop, notebooks, manila folders, wallet and 2 water bottles inside. Highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! I have been obsessing about this tote for over a year. The only thing holding me back was justifying spending the money. Totally worth it!!! This is the perfect size, hold everything I need and looks fantastic. The color is beautiful. Zero regrets!
