The Canvas Transport Tote

The Canvas Transport Tote is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 82.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Tote! just what I wanted! This canvas tote with leather handles is lighter weight than leather and sports a clean, contemporary design. I've been using it ever since it has arrived and love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The tote for everything and anything. Big fan of this tote, which I eyed up for a while before I made the purchase (I kept convincing myself that I don't need another bag, because I didn't, but this one was different.) I'm stoked I did. I was looking for a perfect carryall for my workday: headphones, bagged lunch, water bottle, smoothie cup, a million granola bars, and some books. Carrying 2+ bags wasn't an option much longer so I was on the hunt for a big tote that would wear well (the canvas is soft but sturdy and less maintenance than leather, it actually ends up being lighter to carry too) but wasn't so big that I felt like it was luggage. This tote does everything and looks great while doing so. If you're considering buying it, go for it, you won't regret it and you'll end up using it for much more than your work commute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE go to bag After buying this bag, I had it monogrammed and got a super cute leather sunglasses tassel from the store to go with it. I absolutely love it. It's big enough for me to bring a change of clothes to work, a book, and my wallet. The leather straps are good quality and it's the perfect casual and everyday bag. Its minimalism makes it chic; definitely a well worth purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Bag This bag is perfect for my day to day haul of junk I keep in my purse, but also nice to use as a beach bag, or for farmer's market shopping. Basically I can use it wherever whenever. The canvas is thick which makes it feel sturdy and pre faded which makes it look a little vintage. I got the green color and love it! It's the exact color in the photo. This bag has replaced my leather transport tote for summer time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peerfect Large But Light Tote Very happy with this bag - well made - great color (got it in British Surplus). Know I will get a lot of use out of it - it's the kind of tote you'd grab for carrying anything and everything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from color, straps, inside pockets Let me tell you the ways I love this tote. From color (deep olive green), leather straps and perfect length to carry in hand or on shoulders, sturdiness, two pockets on the inside. One zippered and the other open to drop things quickly in. Pockets are also of great size to easily store bigger things in them. This tote is my go to for every day running around. I know that with age it will just get better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I've been eyeing this bag in leather and then the canvas came out and I immediately bought it. I throw my laptop/power cords in it and use it for work--a way to be cuter at the office when you need to lug all your stuff around.
