The Zip-Top Transport Crossbody

The Zip-Top Transport Crossbody is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Everyday Bag This bag is the perfect everyday bag - big enough for a full size wallet, cosmetics pouch, sunglasses, and a bottle of water or a folded up scarf. It's simplicity makes it incredible chic, but understated. My only nit is that the crossbody strap should be finished on both sides; however, at this price point, it's still incredible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect bag I had been admiring this bag on intagram for years... or a version of it. I was a little hesitant purchasing online (we dont have madewell in new zealand) but the bag arrived in no time and is perfect. Easily fits phone,wallet and water bottle. My friends at work are comtemplating getting the same bag... but maybe in a diff color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit for everyday essentials This bag is the perfect size for holding everything I need, without being so large that I have to dig. It has two inside pockets- one for each of my iPhone 8plus phones (personal and work), which keep them easily accessible so i don't misss calls. I also have a continental (full size) wallet, sunglass case, 5x7 makeup pouch and keys, and it’s not so tight a fit that I have any issues with zipping the bag shut. The adjustable strap is great for short girls like me who struggle with crossbody bags that hang too low, and the short top handles are great for picking it up quickly, rather than having to gather up the long strap or have it swinging all over the place when I get in or out of the car. I got the English Saddle color which is a perfect neutral tan to go with everything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded Expectations! I have had my eye on the transport crossbody in English saddle for a while and was quite excited when Madewell brought it back online. After visiting a store, I thought the small transport crossbody was a bit too small for daily use and chose this zip-top version instead. The size is perfect! You can easily fit a book/kindle, wallet, phone, keys, etc. into this bag. I plan on using it for travel in Europe this summer, as the crossbody strap and zipper features are great for warding off pickpockets. My monogram looks perfect and I received the bag a week and a half after purchase. The leather feels smooth and seems to be good quality. Very happy and worth the splurge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love! I was wanting a crossover that was “just right “ and this is the one! The medium crossover was too big and the small too small. I think this is a redesign and it’s the perfect size! It zips up too which helps to keep things from falling out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical and beautiful Love this bag! Just the right size for daily use and for all the random things that end up finding their way into my bag. Also the leather is breaking in very nicely so far and there don’t seem to be many scratches

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag with a few flaws I do like this bag but I was a little disappointed with some things. I was expecting a softer leather and this is kind of rough on the inside of the straps. Definitely not comfortable carrying on a bare shoulder or with any delicate fabrics. I also wish there was a zip pocket on the inside. There are only two small slip pockets. Hopefully the leather will soften with use. Otherwise this bag is perfect: great size and shape, zip top, short handles and crossbody strap. It is also very lightweight and has a beautifully minimal and timeless design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great city bag I purchased this bag to use for work but also to use around NYC because it fits my DSLR camera and light. While it's a beautiful bag and I continue to use it almost everyday, I do have some negative comments about it. The zipper works well, but it's not as smooth of a close as I would have wanted. It has also scratched/cut my hand multiple times when I'm rushing and need to reach in and grab something. The two pockets inside are small. I usually use them for my card holder and chapstick/lipstick. A regular iPhone could fit in it, but not an iPhone Plus. Would be great if they added another bigger pocket on the opposite side of the two small pockets. As expected, if you're placing smaller items in the bag, it can be annoying to have to dig around the bag and look for it, so I recommend using small pouches inside the bag to organize your items.
