How often you'll reach for it? 500 gazillion times.

The Transport Tote

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 709 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wears well, keeps me organized. I bought this tote a year ago and have spent very little time without it since. It's simple and durable. There's a comfort knowing that everything I need pretty much lives inside it, which creates the illusion that I am an organized person. I don't treat mine preciously but it's worn beautifully, though I embrace the distress - worn leather feels very 1970s :) I definitely recommend that you buy this bag for yourself and as a gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE THIS TOTE!!! This tote is AMAZING! Big enough to contain a laptop for classes- but not too big if you want to use it as a purse or a bag to take to work (I work as a nurse!). Enough room for lunch too. I love the color (light brown) and the quality leather is outstanding. I am very excited to use this on trips too as it is perfect to take on a plane or a roadtrip. Also, I find that the straps are perfect length. I am 5'4" and tiny and sometimes bigger totes tend to swamp me- but not this one! It's literally perfect! I love the inside zipped small pocket also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great bag! I love this bag! I carry it everyday, it looks great with everything from sweats to dresses to work attire. I'm so glad I finally took the plunge and purchased this bag, its' so well crafted and the added detail of the monogram adds a little something special to it. I would love to own it in every color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Perfect Every Day Tote Beautiful leather and sturdy! Straps do seem flimsy and thin but hold up nicely when the bag is filled with heavier objects and books. I'm so happy with this purchase!! Sure, there are various totes to choose from but nothing compares to this classic tote made so well. April 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bag This bag is fabulous overall! It would nice to have a bigger pocket inside but love the size of the bag. The only other downfall would be the straps, they are about an inch to short. April 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great everyday bag that lasts forever! I've had this bag for about four years. I've carried it pretty much every day filled with lots of heavy law books. I thought it would eventually break because the straps do look thin, but it hasn't even gotten close. Still looks amazing and sturdy as ever. Will probably buy another one in a new color sometime soon. I highly recommend!!! April 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful bag! I got this bag in the "english saddle" color. Its a beautiful color! the bag is well-made, big enough to carry everything you need and looks great for work or weekends. April 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by THE bag I've had this bag for a few months now, and I love it more everyday. I use it as my bag for uni, so it easily carries a few notebooks and my laptop as well as odds and ends that I have floating around in my bag. I wouldn't stuff it with heavy textbooks however, because I don't want to wear it out. Still looks great after 8 months of daily use! Goes with everything, and entirely regretting the fact that I didn't get it monogrammed. March 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Work Bag I'd been pining after this back for a long time now. A friend had one in the brown color that I'd been eyeing for a while. I started a new job at the start of the year, and decided I'd break down and treat myself to a new bag for work. The bag is durable, spacious (fits my 14 inch laptop, folders, notebook, pens, etc) very comfortably. I decided to get the black bag with brown straps. Figured that way it'd literally go with any outfit. In addition to being practical, it is also so pretty, really soft leather, stylish shape. Would definitely recommend this bag to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous Bag! When my bag arrived, I was super stoked! It's of excellent quality and the English saddle color is classically beautiful. It's going to be THE bag I turn to for my every need. March 20, 2016
