The Canvas Transport Tote

The Canvas Transport Tote is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 135.
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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tote! Nice material and construction. Neutral color goes with everything. I added an off-white monogram. Also a good material to use year round. It looks like a fabric that will only improve with age! Love it!

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 Perfect everyday tote! I have the original transport tote and the transport crossbody, but I wanted a lighter everyday bag I could just grab and go (and throw random things into). I was looking at the canvas tote for a while and finally took the plunge and I love it! I love that it's lightweight -- the original transport tote can get too heavy since it's all leather. I got it in the olive british surplus color and it's great because it goes with everything and won't get dirty easily. I added a few enamel pins to it to add a personal touch and it looks even better. 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!
