Rated 5 out of 5 by MBR4 Amazing purchase
I have been wanting this bag for a while and finally bought it this summer with the excuse that I needed it to carry all the items my son & I needed for the plane ride. I am so glad I did. It was the perfect travel bag and purse. The monogramming makes me love it even more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by whitezinnia As good as more expensive totes
I researched this purchase for a long time. This tote is the best I found for a great price. I love the leather, the size, the ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Monia Best bag I've purchased
I've been searching for the perfect everyday bag, and then I stumbled upon this one. It is slightly better than perfect. Not only is it ideal for everyday work/school, it works for weekend wear, shopping wear and even carry on wear. The only time it's a little too large is when you want it to serve the purpose of a clutch. Prior to purchasing this bag I read a few blogs about the transport tote that compared it to a number of others. Glad I chose this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sheliab1 The rich smell of leather.
Well worth the investment. I feel as if the bag will outlive it's usefulness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SJFleur perfect for almost anything!
A few details: I lusted over this bag for several months before receiving it for Christmas in the English Saddle color with the plain monogram.
This bag is just about perfect. I've chose it for its simplicity and I love how minimal it is, which really lets the leather and quality speak for itself. This bag *looks* expensive (and it is, by my standards, but is so worth the investment). I carry it almost every day through all seasons to carry my laptop and books for class and then all my belongings for nights out, traveling, work, and everything in between. It's not so comfortable if you overpack it, but for every day it is beautiful and professional but still hip and luxurious looking. I avoid the rain when I can.
In the 8 months I've owned it, the corners on the bottom have worn just a tiny bit. It's starting to develop patina on the handles, which looks great. Every now and then I'll get a compliment on the monogram, which is very small, but a nice detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YoungMom26 Love it!…but
It was love at first sight but I am a little lady and the bag is kinda big on my shoulder, on the other hand I'm a mom and I always have extra to haul. I do wish there were "care for instructions" included in the packaging for the bag especially for first time leather owners-for those of you: Madewell has a blog where you can hopefully find answers to all of your questions!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnastasiaPJ68 Love this bag
I have been shopping around for quite some time for an all purpose, go to, brown leather bag. This bag is perfect. It's the perfect size, looks great, and the gold initials are the perfect final touch.
It's really versatile and stylish.
My only wishes, if I could change anything, would be MORE pockets or a divider. If it was lined and had internal pockets it would be perfect.
I also wish the straps were slightly longer OR alternately had an attachable strap to make it cross body. I walk everywhere so that would make it more functional. With that said, it's still a fantastic purchase, and I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jasltr I LOVE MY BAG!
I got this is the english saddle and I LOVE IT! I also had it monogrammed to add that extra personalised touch. There were some marks on the inside of the bag as it came that way. But i don't care cos the bag is absolutely stunning. And I feel that everyone needs one of this. I would prefer if the bag came with a dustbag though. Plus, dustbags are cheap but it elevates the perceived value of your bag.
