Medium Colored Open Top Tote Bag
The Perfect Tote
As a baseball Mom and scorekeeper, this tote is perfectly sized for carrying my baseball scorebook and iPad, with room for all the little things I used to juggle ... like keys, cell phone, sunflower seeds... water bottles. Now I can pack it all in and go. Fits comfortably on my shoulder, is super-sturdy, and the puple dusk color is exactly as pictured - goes great with our team uniforms. Also got it monogrammed (script), and couldn't be more pleased - wrote my last name on the bag in the default thread (light stone) which is a perfect match for the bag. Thanks for maintaining the high quality of your totes, Lands End. Love it!!

My favorite tote bag!
These tote bags are such great quality, this is the second one I've owned. I only got a new one because a pen exploded all over the front of my old bag. However, it's still in great shape! I use it now to cary my daughters stuff to child care. The one I just purchased is still the same great quality. I ordered in black just in case I have any more pens explode! I'm looking forward to many years with this bag as well!

Like It But (A Lot) but Would Suggest (Minor) Improvements
I'd love this bag if a few changes were made to the pockets, handles, and key fob...
There's a large, shallow inner pocket with just a slim piece of canvas and a snap for a closure. I've never found much use for this pocket and actually find it in the way. I suppose it would be a good place for a iPad or Kindle, but it won't fit a laptop. There are other smaller pockets on the inside -- two that are so small it's hard to reach items at the bottom. I wish at least one pocket, either on the inside or out, were zippered for a phone, wallet, or other small valuables.
I wish Lands' End would avoid using light colors on the handles -- they do get dirty quickly!
The attached key fob is handy! I only wish it could be detached and moved from one side of the bag to the other. I find that the fob is on the "wrong" side for me (I carry my tote on the left with the outside pocket facing out), and find it hard to reach my keys with my right hand. I machine washed my first tote (the instructions recommend spot cleaning), and the key hook broke in the process. I suppose I was a bit surprised that the metal broke so easily.
All in all I've been very happy with the tote -- it's size and quality of construction -- so I'm back to buy a replacement.

Well made, high quality
I ordered three of these bags as gifts. They are high quality and very well made. I have an older bag from Landsend that I have used for years. It is durable and still looks good. I have washed it several times.

You can not go wrong with any Landsend tote!
I have bought many of these totes in the past several years. They are made out of strong material and hold up great.

This is my second bag and I love it! They are sturdy and hold up to the weather, no cracking or flaking, or loose threads. Very practical work bag, will continue to order them. Thanks!

A very handy bag
I ordered this bag after ordering an extra large one. I love both of them. I use it for everything, but mostly for work. I am a teacher and it is very handy for taking papers home to grade along with my grade book and other items. I'm thinking about ordering a large one so I can use it for work and not have to carry my purse or lunch tote. Mine got iced tea spilled on it and I washed it out by hand and let it air dry and even though it is a light blue, it came out beautifully! The only thing I would change is, I wish it had a divider in the middle.

Great bag for moms!
I purchased this tote to use as an everyday bag. I have a toddler and was tired of carrying his diaper bag and my purse everywhere we went. This is perfect because I can fit all my things in and have room for a few diapers, a sippy cup and some snacks. I don't worry about getting it dirty because its easy to wash! (A clean scrub brush and a little dish soap!) I ordered the navy and it goes with everything because I mostly wear jeans. The pockets are great for keeping the little items from cluttering the bag and the key hook makes it easy to find my keys, no digging in a deep bag! I can also take his stuff out if I am spending the day out by myself and the while the bag is large, it is not too bulky for just a purse. I do wish the straps were just a bit longer. It fits great over a sweater but not sure how it will do over my thick coat this winter. I am 5'10" and pretty thin and it rests comfortably on my shoulder.

Another Wonderful Bag
I will just repeat what a zillion others have written - these bags are fantastic! I have at least a dozen in various sizes and colors. My latest is an absolutely beautiful purple medium. I use it to take to the pool with me five days a week and it holds everything. These bags take quite a beating and still look great!

Good but has some flaws
This tote is strong and durable and can hold alot. Also an easy, off the shoulder bag. What I don't like about it is that it gets dirty and dingy looking fast and you can't throw it into the washing machine. I'm not so fond of 'spot cleaning' They mean what they say. If you put it into the washing machine it comes out stiff as a board! No returning to its original state. So, I had to buy another one. Now, I only use mine to transport things, once in a while, like books and bagged coins to take to the 'Coinstar' etc. I liked this tote as an everyday bag, but it gets dirty so fast. And, if you put a newspaper in it, forget it! The ink is all over. Because it's fabric, I want to put it into the washing machine, which is a no, no. This is no longer my everyday tote bag.
