Medium Colored Zip Top Tote Bag
Perfect for school, beach, work...!
The bag is really durable and stands up on its own. I plan on using it for years to come! The color is exactly as expected. I can fit the straps under my arm easily and don't think using it with a large coat will be a problem. But I am also a relatively skinny person. I've been carrying it for about a month now.
I am using this bag for my internship and will use it for college in the fall. I needed something other than a backpack, but it had to be affordable; this tote did the trick! It fits my 13" laptop, nook, a folder of notebook paper, clipboard, water bottle, cosmetic bag, and pencil case. The pocket in the rear on the inside has strap that snaps over it which is perfect for the nook. The three pockets inside on the front of the bag are great for wallet, key, sunglasses, planner, phone, etc. The pocket on the outside is perfect for my phone.

I love this bag. Beautiful color, nice weight to it. Great to take all the things you need to carry. The fact that it was on clearance even made it better.

What can I say that hasn't already been said about these totes? I love them, I have purchased several and use them for travel, work, beach, and the list goes on. This size fits over my shoulder and the extra few bucks for the zipper option is worth it. I purchased two of these totes at Easter and used them as baskets for my twin 5 year old granddaughters. I had them monogramed and filled with tons of goodies. Now they use them as overnight bags when they come to my house :) Don't hesitate, just buy one, the quality of these totes are second to none.

The best bag ever!!!
I use this bag as a everyday purse. I got it in fresh pink and had my name put on it. I love it so much! It fits everything I need day to day plus extra. It stands up well and does not flop over. Everywhere I go people tell me they love it and ask where its from. My mom loved it to and got one for herself. Another great lands' end buy!!!!!

Loving my tote!
I love this tote. I purchased it in navy and had it monogrammed. The straps are plenty long enough to go on my shoulder. I gave it four stars instead of five, because the bottom piece of material feels thinner and less stiff than the rest of the bag as well as in comparison to my other Lands' End Totes. That aside it is still a nice quality bag with great pockets. The solid navy is a nice option for Fall and Winter.

comfortable, sturdy and attractive.
I bought this bag for school. It is super sturdy and attractive. There are two convenient pockets inside. The strap is long enough to fit over my shoulder and wide enough to be comfortable. I had the bag monogramed and it looked beautiful!

Not as good as they used to be, but still good
I've been using Lands' End totes for almost 20 years now. I'm an English professor, so I carry a lot of books and papers back and forth every day. About 2 years ago, Fall semester '11, I replaced my 12 year old tote because it was looking shabby. Now I'm here to replace the replacement because it's downright embarrassingly shabby. I really don't think I'm living any harder, but the straps are in shreds, and even the side white piping has come off. I ordered the large zip and the medium zip at the same time. I use the medium almost every day, the large much less often, but when I put them side by side, the color difference is amazing. So the fade and the color change from washing it is considerable.
That being said, I'm still back here, because I can't find a replacement that's as well constructed for the price. But as a long time customer, I am seeing a difference. I still have the now almost 14 year old tote and use it for lugging things that are messy or dirty. But as soon as the replacement medium comes, this one is going in the trash.
Just on principle, I didn't want to come back, but I think the fact that I am speaks to the quality one can find now. So an old standard, but too bad it's not as good as it used to be.

The medium canvas tote bag is perfect. I love it!
I was looking for a tote bag for my sister and I finally found it. I love the size. The color is fabulous and I am sure it will last for ever. I bought it on sale. My sister love it! Thanks Land's End I love the quality of your products!

Expected to Love this Tote as always, but.......
Now I ordered this tote while on sale but with the same order # so I expected the same, it wasn't discounted that much! But when I got it it is an odd black/navy, not at all like my other navy and the monogram color clashs with the trim. I had ordered "Navy with Natural trim" and the monogramming was to be natural. The monograming is beautiful as usual BUT it is done in white. I'm so disappointed. I've had a lot of problems in the past year+ with apparel (fit, quality of material, etc) but I never thought a tote would have to be returned, but that's exactly what I'm doing.......I've been a customer for way over 20 yrs but that may end......I'm a real frequent shopper and I appreciate that I can return things to my local Sears but I'm spending a fortune doing that..

Nice looking; sturdy; well designed; very useful
The tote is a perfect size for carrying more than just the contents of a small purse. I did purchase the same color tote in the small size for just that reason--to use as a purse, and it works really well that way. This medium size tote allows me to transfer the purse contents, utilizing the key chain, which is a plus in both bags, also utilizing the various sized pockets in the larger one, and still be able to add whatever files, books, umbrella, water bottle,snacks, etc. I need to transport on a particular day, without the worry of it tipping over. The zip top adds to the security of the contents while expanding the upper limits of the tote and keeping everything covered.
I expect that this tote will last a very long time. I also own a light canvas open top tote which I have used consistently for the past year. I went with the zipper and the black/tan tote this time to be able to span all four seasons.
