The Portland Tote

The Portland Tote is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Madewell bag ever! I had my eye on this bag for a long time and held off because of budget restrictions. However, when one popped up on sale, I jumped on it. This bag is the perfect size for me. It is sturdy, yet feminine. It has just enough detail to be interesting, but still has a classic and timeless look. The color is gorgeous! I love this bag so much and I really hope Madewell decides to manufacture it again. I want others to share my happiness :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE I saw this bag in the store and instantly fell in love with it. I love the rich color, adjustable handle length, and side snaps. I've always loved the Transport tote as well, but Madewell really nailed it with this bag. Super sturdy and classic, and the bottom is structured so that it won't sag like the Transport can. Slightly smaller than the Transport for those days when you don't need to carry everything. The leather feels slightly thinner than the Transport. The only thing I noticed with this bag was that the leather seems to wrinkle a little more easily and can look creased in some places. Overall, I'm really happy with the bag and know I will use it for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous!! I absolutely love this tote! The Transport always seemed so plain to me, and too large, overwhelming my petite frame. But the portland fixes all of these issues! And the color! The mahogany is a rich, wine like color. Just beautiful. I can't wait to get the suede version next!
