The Reversible Transport Tote
Product Details
Our signature ruggedly cool tote is now even more versatile. Understated black leather on one side, it reverses to a lustrous metallic for a more life-of-the-party vibe. Still low-key in a style and material that lasts forever, it's the stuff-it-all-and-go bag you'll sling over your shoulder daily. Bonus: the silver side develops a cool crackle finish the more you carry it.  
  • Monogram will be placed on the black side of the bag.
  • Leather.
  • 8 1/4" handle drop.
  • 13 3/4"H x 17"W x 6"D.

The Reversible Transport Tote is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gift for an awesome person I purchased this as a gift. She loved it. However, I do not recommend Madewell's gift wrapping. There was nothing to it. I do not believe it is worth the extra cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overpriced! At first I was very dissappointed when I saw this bag. The bag remineded me of bags I have recieved as free gifts. The picture is not what you get. This bag is flimsy. I want to provide a better review. I am new to madewell and so far I have been thrilled to have the store as an option. That is why I decided to try the bag. I'm glad I did, the bag grew on me. It is simple and elegant. No zippers or pockets to deal with. Maybe one small pocket. So I just used a bunch of my favorjte small pouch bags (free gifts). It was actually much better then I thought. I could fit my laptop and shop for a few small items. Okay, the bag has grown on me. Just really wished I waited for a sale.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good but.. As a Madewell loyalist, I was excited to get this bag, but my had my concerns and I was right to worry. The leather is not 2 top grains glued together, but rather the metallic is painted onto the back side (suede) of the leather. So it was cracking all over the place. I also got it monogramed - they monogramed it on the metallic side! Unlike the photo on their website! And the gold monogram is already half gone. Also, the stitching on one of the corners is coming out. I'm going to have to take this in the next chance I get. Overall, great idea for the bag. But it's not the greatest.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Reversible! I ordered this because I wanted to wear it on the black side but unfortunately it's not really reversible. I suppose you can wear it reversed if you really wanted too but the seams are clearly inside out. There's even a white tag on the seam of the black side that you would have to cut off somehow. The metallic side is pretty but it's more gold-ish than how it looks in the picture. I thought the leather would be much thicker too. I will be returning this bag!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible quality I am so disappointed- this bag, that I felt safe buying on final sale because I have and love the tan color tote, is awful. It's thin and cheap and not reversible as it claims to be. Also, there is no interior pocket which makes it a big black hole of a bag. A total bummer.
