The Zip-Top Transport Carryall

The Zip-Top Transport Carryall is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect bag I have been looking for this bag for ages. It works for the office or with a casual weekend outfit. The crossbody strap makes it perfect for commuting on foot and it's large enough to hold a small laptop (I can't zip the bag with mine in it, but it fits). My only complaint is that the tote handles are a little short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Bag I received this bag for Christmas this year, and I have to say I'm in love. I was initially disappointed because the bag was smaller than the classic transport tote. After carrying it around, bag truly is the perfect size (I carry my life around in my bag i.e. a 40oz water bottle). The straps are too short to carry on your shoulder, but the cross body strap is perfect. The lining is a wonderful addition, and I love my initials in gold on the bag. Overall, I would recommend this bag to everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Baby Jesus Yaaaasss! I didn't know it was possible to love an item so much. I got it for Christmas (after sending some not so subtle links and texts to my mom) and it has been everything and more. My last purse was a cheap little thing that was falling apart and barely held my wallet, phone and keys. This purse holds everything! Computer, book, keys, phone, lip gloss, roller ball, and whatever else I need to get through the day! I have it in black and the leather is already starting to crease up to get that old vintage look that people routinely pay ridiculous prices for. I will be purchasing the brown/english saddle soon! (And maybe even a matching wallet). My only gripe is that the shoulder strap is pretty thin. However, since it's removable, that can be remedied with a quick trip to etsy or amazon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice bag This bag is sturdy, very well made, and has internal pockets as well as a zipper. It's perfect,. I used a leather protector before use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carryall This is a beautiful bag. I purchased the burgundy. I love the zip closure, beautiful leather and shoulder strap. It will be put to the test after the holidays and I'm guessing with time the leather will become softer. Definitely recommend this bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive / Practical Zip-top Bag This zip-top tote is very stylish, perfect size to accommodate glasses, wallet, make-up bag, etc., and most importantly the quality is exceptional. I ordered mine in English Saddle w/monogram. Timeless look and my go-to bag for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything fits I doubted whether everything from my lightweight nylon backpack would fit into the sip-top transport carryall. -- It did. -- And believe it or not it Madewell was lighter. It's soft but it holds its shape. ::: The simple clean design of the medium sized tote with ZIP, assures that nothing will fall out, nor will anyone get into it. ::: I'm, happy, I love it. I have a comment.....I would design a stop at the end of the zipper so that the zipper tab would not be swallowedtherefore making it difficult to pull it out in order to close the bag. My dream would also include inside the bag, at the opening of the zip, a ring or clip to hang my keys, to prevent lengthy search for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Bag! Such a great quality leather purse! The leather is super thick and durable. I chose the 'English Saddle' color and I can tell it will be a staple in my wardrobe. This is a great bag for on the go, shopping, work, etc. It's even large enough to carry a smaller laptop inside! I have already gotten so many complements on it, and the monogram adds a really nice personal touch. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I held off on buying the Transport Satchel in black w/brown handles in hopes they would make it in all black. I’m glad I did, I LOVE this bag. It fits everything and somehow this bag feels lighter than my Transport Tote & Transport satchel even with the same amount of stuff in it! Only complaint is that the zipper does seem to get lost and you have to fish it out to close it. Other than that, this is the bag I’ve been waiting for!
