Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I needed a new tote for work and I am so happy that I decided to buy this one. It is the perfect size and the canvas is thick and extremely durable. I tend to go hard on my bags, so I was very pleased with how well-made this tote is. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, from a bag lady I have constantly struggled with the everyday and every night bag dilemma. This means I'm constantly carrying 4+ bags so I have everything I need for everything I'm doing. I need to have a bag that can carry everything I need for work and life- laptop, chargers, portfolios, a small purse, keys, etc. And then I also need that bag to not weigh 794 pounds. This bag is PERFECT. I use it every single day and it has plenty of room for what I need but isn't making my arm feel like it's going to fall off either. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing carry all tote! Absolutely in LOVE with this tote! I bought online so didn't know what to fully expect until it arrived but it's perfect! Great roomy size, amazing quality; worth every penny! The handle is a bit short to be completely comfortable on my shoulder but it's too good overall to be bothered by this! This is a must have bag! Another may just make its way into my closet...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect everyday bag! I bought this bag as a birthday present for myself 6 months ago, and with the exception of a few clutch-worthy dinners and weddings, I have carried it every day since! I have the british surplus, and the color is holding up well in my opinion. I also have the transport weekender and the zippered crossbody, and the leather handles on this tote are of much higher quality than on either of the pricier bags. The size is great for work - holds a laptop plus all my personal essentials, but also great for errands. If I don't have it stuffed, it is really lightweight and low-profile. Perfect tote!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great looking large sporty bag! A funny thing happened today...I received my second Madewell package. It contained a birthday present from my daughter in law. A beautiful green canvas transport bag was enclosed! I was in the process of sending back the same bag that I'd ordered for myself, to exchange it for the green one. I had ordered the acorn (which looks like a fun yellow bag); however it turned out to be a rather dark brown. So I will happily now return it for a refund and keep my beautiful birthday gift!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my tote...... I bought this tote in the black colored option and absolutely love it :) It is spacious enough to completely carry all of my everyday necessities, including my big water bottle, laptop, bagged lunch, extra snacks, planner, wallet, coin purse, phone, one hardcover book, and one cosmetics bag. When I travel, I shove in a light sweater, more snacks, and more books....The tote has softened up with use and looks great with the leather handles, which have also held up nicely. I plan on buying an additional one for my gym stuff. Thanks again, Madewell :)

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.
