Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Bag This bag is perfect for my day to day haul of junk I keep in my purse, but also nice to use as a beach bag, or for farmer's market shopping. Basically I can use it wherever whenever. The canvas is thick which makes it feel sturdy and pre faded which makes it look a little vintage. I got the green color and love it! It's the exact color in the photo. This bag has replaced my leather transport tote for summer time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tote! I bought this for my niece's wedding shower as a personal gift. I had it monogrammed and added some beach things in it. She loved having her new initials on it. It is a sturdy, well-made tote. I think it is perfect for beach, shopping or a day trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peerfect Large But Light Tote Very happy with this bag - well made - great color (got it in British Surplus). Know I will get a lot of use out of it - it's the kind of tote you'd grab for carrying anything and everything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from color, straps, inside pockets Let me tell you the ways I love this tote. From color (deep olive green), leather straps and perfect length to carry in hand or on shoulders, sturdiness, two pockets on the inside. One zippered and the other open to drop things quickly in. Pockets are also of great size to easily store bigger things in them. This tote is my go to for every day running around. I know that with age it will just get better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible quality, even better value For a couple years now I've been considering, planning, ready to buy a leather transport tote, but I never went through with it. I've bought other bags from Madewell, all of them essential to my closet during the appropriate seasons, but for some reason I just couldn't go ahead and buy the (almost always) full price leather transport. Enter the canvas transport tote, which I fell in love with as soon as I saw it online and ordered it with the insider percentage off. I'm happy to report that the black sea version is even better than I had imagined--it isn't pure black, but rather a deep, dark gray color that feels like it'll go with most outfits. But even better than the color or its super-sturdy leather handles are the sizable double pockets inside the bag; the first one is zippered, then the one underneath is open, but both together make this bag amazingly convenient to carry things without getting them lost in this large tote!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I've been eyeing this bag in leather and then the canvas came out and I immediately bought it. I throw my laptop/power cords in it and use it for work--a way to be cuter at the office when you need to lug all your stuff around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Perfect Canvas Tote I have long searched for a Perect tote so when I heard about Madewell from my niece, I went straight to their website and bought the minimally faded black one. It's perfect for summer. The strap drop length is ideal and fits well over the shoulder and under the arms. . It's a must have. May get the white one too. ❤️
