The Zip-Top Transport Carryall

The Zip-Top Transport Carryall is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smaller in person. Small handles not for shoulders Just came from the Insiders pre-black Friday sale from 9-11 at the Prudential. Was able to see this bag first-hand. It's smaller in person - I guess I was hoping for a zip-top version of the Transport tote but this has small handles so the only way to carry it is with the cross-body strap. Also the body is smaller than the Transport tote. I feel as if everyone has been clamoring for a zip-too version on the Transport so puzzled as to why they would make it smaller and with no shoulder length straps. Pass on this for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wishing it had longer straps I have honestly been waiting for this bag to arrive, so as soon as I saw it, I immediately had to go see it in person. I was so excited UNTIL I noted the smaller handles, so the only way to wear it is cross body. SO disappointing! Like the review below many of us were hoping for a transport tote with a zip top with longer handles. It would have been the perfect bag had Madewell done this and increased the versatility of this bag. This bag is beautiful, I just wish it had the length of the transport tote shoulder straps.
