The Camden Tote

The Camden Tote is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minimalist Perfection I decided to bite the bullet and get the blogger darling transport tote but I checked out the other totes first. I saw the camden tote and it was love at first sight. The black is pebbled with smooth accents. There are two small inside pockets for easy access to my cell phone and work ID and a large zippered inside pocket that fits all of my small things. Everything else I just throw in. This bag DOES stand up on its own but it really isn't cumbersome. I love the magnetic closure. I use it as a purse but some days it can double as a purse/work tote. I am so thrilled with this purchase and will enjoy it for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. I'm obsessed with this bag. My only complaint is I wish the handles were longer so I could wear it on my shoulder. Otherwise, it's perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect tote for work! A little smaller than I thought it'd be, but that's my fault for not checking the measurements. Probably better this way, as I won't put so much stuff in it that my shoulders hurt. The leather is beautiful, excellent quality - but not heavy, which is awesome. I wish the monogram was a bit bigger, but it's cute anyway - I got the gold and it really adds to the bag. A perfect tote for work. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from had my eye on it for a while I have always loved this tote but was hesitant because of the price. I tried it on in the store and fell in love instantly and the monogram was a definite plus. I got it in the black but am thinking about getting it in the burgundy as well. I have had tons of compliments and this bag literally fits everything! I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fashionable, convenient, easy to organize for college students This tote has been such a great piece to own as a college student. It replaces my bulky, dare-I-say ugly backpack by holding all of my textbooks, planner and computer. I predict the leather to last a very long time, as it is built well and fully lined. I love the double strap because it can be transformed from an everyday tote with the small strap to a full on school bag with the larger adjustable strap. Love, love, love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Size for Laptop or iPad I absolutely love this bag. I bought it with the intention of using it to carry books and my iPad for school and was pleasantly surprised how perfectly it serves this function. It is clearly well constructed and is extremely sophisticated. It is truly my favorite bag! I would definitely recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Go-To Bag I get weak and crumble for any beautiful black leather handbag. I own over 5, but knew my black handbag collection was still missing something. When I first began looking for personalized and monogrammed handbags, I never thought I would find the most ideal every day bag, the Camden. When it arrived I was immediately in love and have not switched it out for any other handbag to date. I can fit my phone, MacBook Air, magazines, some makeup and a water bottle. The straps are beautifully stitched for every day wear, and the optional shoulder strap makes this bag even more of an everyday outfit staple. I am so happy I made the decision to have my initials stamped on my Camden, it makes my tote that much more personal and unique! Thanks Madewell!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the perfect work tote I've searched high and low for the perfect leather tote for work and travel. I was nervous that the dimensions wouldn't work for my 15" Macbook Pro, but luckily, the computer is 14.25" it slips in perfectly. The bag is also roomy enough to carry everything else, and it's beautiful! SO happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I received this bag as a gift (with the blind monogram) and I love it so much. The leather is so soft yet the bag is very structured. Love the detachable long strap, the simplicity of the inner pockets and the overall look of this bag. I will get MANY years of use from it!
