The Medium Transport Tote

The Medium Transport Tote is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 292.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic functional, easy to find things. not too heavy I carry this purse so often even my chic 91 year old mom wanted one for herself. So now we both carry it and are constantly getting confused about whose is whose. Her purse looks unused and mine on the other hand is screaming " I need a break please go buy one in every color, so I can chill for awhile !"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous color and super stylish I absolutely hate carrying a purse and purchased this to use as a bag for work, but when I got it, I loved it so much that it actually made me want to carry it for everything. The color is absolutely stunning and I get compliments on it all of the time. The leather is super soft and I love the simplicity of the design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I got the tote in the "antique rose" and I love it! I was worried it would be too pink but it looks exactly like it does in the picture! Very happy with it. I did think it'd be slightly larger than it turned out to be but I can still fit a laptop and one or two notebooks in it. Overall, totally in love. The shade is very stylish and matches with almost everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful The Tote is wonderful. I can transport even my computer in it! :) The only thing I would consider is that you can't transport thing that are too heavy, because the bag cordon could open and the bag falls. But it is not terrible, the bag survives well. ;) And the things inside too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful but not crossbody Beautiful bag, not too slouchy but looks like it will wear-in well. Not sure why Madewell’s photos show it being worn cross body, only the petitest of petites could possibly do that. If I wear it cross body it sits about 2inches under my armpit. I’d need another 12-18inches of strap length to wear this crossbody, shame it isn’t longer or doesn’t have an option length strap for sale. Foil stamping is beautiful but I wish we could have 4 or more letters, some of us don’t have the standard 3, so I had to drop a few! Good price for the quality, timeless and roomy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this bag! I purchased the medium transport tote because I thought the larger size would overwhelm my petite frame of 5 feet tall. It is the perfect size. I love the English Saddle color which goes with everything. The outside pocket is great for phone and keys. The only negative thing I can say about the quality of this bag is, I would have liked the detachable shoulder strap to be just a little bit longer (like 2 inches). To wear comfortably as a cross body bag. This is my go to bag. Overall, I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality for price I get lots of compliments on this bag. The only critique I have is on the hand straps- wish these were slightly wider/more substantial. I use this bag for work and if there's anything too heavy in there the straps dig into skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday love I love this bag so much. The deep wine color is rich and luxe. The gold monogramming is the perfect size. It complements the gold hardware so well. It's my new work bag and I love looking at it every day!
