Product Details
Our Transport Tote family has a brand-new addition, a small (but surprisingly roomy) take on our best-selling Medium style. What goes into it? Here it is by the numbers: 2 pieces of fine leather are used for the body. 2 ways to carry: with the top handles or the detachable shoulder strap. 1 exterior pocket for those things you gotta grab fast. 1 interior side zip pocket to keep your keys, phone and wallet at the ready. 24: the number of hours in a day that this bag looks adorable. How many compliments you'll get? 500 gazillion.

The Small Transport Crossbody

The Small Transport Crossbody is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 83.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for this Mom of 3 After talking myself out of this bag since it launched, I’m glad I took the risk and went for it. I ended up buying the small wallet pouch (Madewell) to replace my previous long wallet. Love how this bag doesn’t dig into my shoulder, and it’s (surprisingly) very easy and practical to use/wear. So if you’re a mom like me who hates large heavy bulky purses- give this cutie a try. PS, it was worth the extra wait getting my gold initials on it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My girlfriend loves me even more now! Hey Madewell folks, Thanks for making me look so darn good by remembering my girlfriend wanted this bag for her birthday. I remembered, I ordered it, it arrived in time, she loved it, was impressed I remembered. The rest of the night was a blur thanks to you! ;) Thanks again, I owe you. . . Jonathan P.S. Something more secure as a closure at the top would be stellar so it can be carried in the back and not worry about someone grabbing anything from within.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Tote Bag This is probably the best bag I have ever bought. It fits everything I need when I go out. It's perfect the color, quality, the size and the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size for everyday I wanted a bag that was small enough to run errands but still fit everything I needed. This was the perfect bag! The only downside is that the hardware squeaks. Hopefully that will go away with use but overall, I recommend this bag to everyone, especially with the gold monogram.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday Bag The small transport is so tiny I laughed a little when I saw it but it's such a practical bag for everyday usage! I like that it has room for my keys, phone, lipstick, chapstick, planner, phone, and sunnies. Just my essentials without getting lost in the abyss of all my other bags. The outside small pocket is perfect for me to slip my phone into or whatever I know I will need all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great small bag I love this bag. I have been looking for a brown leather crossbody for months and this one meets all of my needs. It's just the right size to fit my wallet, sunglasses, lip balm, etc. and goes with just about everything - perfect for everyday use. I also love the simple style. My one tiny complaint is that the metal hardware squeaks a bit when I'm walking.. may have to put some WD-40 on it. Other than that, this is a great bag and I know I will get a ton of use out of it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little bag My 17 year old daughter loves this bag! It is perfectly sized for her wallet, phone and a few little assorted items. The styling is great and the leather is soft and supple. Highly recommend this bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deeply obsessed Oh my word. I finally found THE ONE. This bag is just a tiny slip of a thing, but it works well because of the unstructured, simplified finish. Since the leather isn't too rigid, you can actually fit plenty inside. (This is coming from a girl with a closet full of tiny leather bags with awkward, inconvenient zipper/pocket/lining combos that inevitably make the bag look warped and ill-fitting when one too many lipglosses are crammed inside). I bought this lovely little leather purse in English Saddle, and I am pairing it with the Madewell Post wallet in Cabernet, which fits nicely inside with room to spare for makeup treasures, phone, and keys.
