Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic upgrade This tote has tons of room without being too big to manage as a daily bag. I actually purchased this as an upgrade to the worn diaper bag that I’ve been using for a year and a half and I’m so happy to say I now look good while carrying diapers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The absolute BEST tote! I cannot say enough about the Madewell totes! I have a leather version but wanted a canvas tote for spring. The color is the most perfect shade for spring and I purchased a Madewell scarf in matching colors to attach to my tote. It’s very roomy with 2 inner pockets that are larger than the leather version. The transport totes are the only handbags I carry anymore. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag! I fell in love with the antique purple version of this bag as soon as I saw it online. It's a good, sturdy tote. The fabric does come textured/wrinkled, but I can't complain since it does show that in the product image. I love the color even more in real life! It matches with everything. The pockets inside are great and very functional as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best diaper bag ever! I tried my goyard, bottega, and lv totes as a diaper bag and I kind of have to be careful so I wanted to have something cheaper but not heavy and doesn’t look cheap. I tried this tote and it’s so light weight and fits two babies stuffs and still look good. Give a shot if you are looking for a diaper bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So nice I bought it twice! I've been carrying the ochre colored one all winter long and love it so much that I just purchased the rose colored one for spring/summer season. I think the color of the rose will stave off the dirt smudges for a long while. It's so utilitarian and fits everything I need in it. It makes me feel so casually put together, like I'm not trying too hard. I wish I had more discretionary spending money to purchase the blue crossbody styled one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable tote I love my new tote bag it’s heavy and very durable . I purchased the black bag but it appeared a little faded. I wished i had gotten the green one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE. I’ve been eyeing this bag for MONTHS & my mom got it for me for my birthday! I love it. It’s spacious and the 2 inside pockets are deep :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality tote I have been looking for an open tote bag that was sturdy enough for schlepping back and forth to work each day, often with heavy books and a laptop. While still new, I feel like this bag will be able to handle everything I put in it and still look great. Quality seems great. Size is good! Price point is reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tote-ally worth it! Great bag if you’re on the go or need to carry around more than the day-to-day essentials! It’s roomy with a comfortable strap and simple (in a classy way)! Highly recommend and love the durability of the bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to Bag. Perfect for everyday use. The green is a very neutral color. The handles are not too long or short. The canvas is very durable.
