The Medium Transport Tote

The Medium Transport Tote is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 351.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful in black! I received this bag (in black, with blind imprint personalization) last week and am really loving it. As many others note, the size is great for commuting; it fits my planner, kindle, sunglasses case, large wallet, and bag of misc. cosmetics and products easily, with plenty of extra give so that the bag doesn't feel over-stuffed. It has a nice structure that's flexible (thanks to the beautiful leather) but boxy enough to stand on its own. I agree that the shoulder strap is truly a shoulder strap - there's no crossbody action happening there (even for someone like me who is 5' 0")! The black color is really rich and lovely to the touch, and I highly recommend the blind imprint if you're interested in adding a classic and personal detail without being quite as obvious as the gold foil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I Needed for Work! This bag is the perfect size to fit my 13" Macbook Pro for work plus notebooks and books. I really needed something that was simple but also more adult for work than the backpack I traditionally brought, and I'm so glad I got this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I don't even know where to begin! This tote is everything I wanted and more. There's so much room! A zip pouch on the inside for some organization.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect style and size Fits over the shoulder with handles and holds everything I need without looking bulky. Quality construction and materials. Rose pink color is terrific and not too bright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bag I love this bag so much. It smells lovely and the size is perfect. I have my hobo wallet, glasses, keys, another bag with extra backup makeup, and can fit my 15" laptop inside and I still have tons of room. So glad I got it.

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 !"
