Medium Natural Zip Top Canvas Tote Bag
Ideal Tote Bag and Exactly What I Expected/Wanted
I spent a lot of time looking online at various companies before ordering my canvas tote bag. A lot of my friends have canvas tote bags, from various retailers, and I always admired them and wanted one. I went with Land's End because of the variety and price. Also, I had received a larger version of this tote as a Christmas gift and wanted a smaller one to match.
The different sized pockets on the inside are ideal and perfect for storing business cards, pens, and other necessities that I need to grab at a moment's notice. The outside pocket holds my cell phone perfectly too. And I am so glad I went with the zippered tote so I can have that option to close up my bag when I want.
My canvas tote is sturdy and roomy. I love the fact that I can carry it on my arm or on my shoulder. I will definitely order from Land's End again. I am addicted to these totes!

This bag is perfect for commuting with tons of stuff piled into your bag. The compartments make it easier to organize your stuff and the outside pocket makes things like cell phone or keys easy to access. The shoulder handles are made extremely sturdy and somehow make a stuffed bag feel light on your shoulders. I also use this bag for school books. The sturdiness of the entire bag is wonderful too because I do not feel as if it is flopping everywhere and can stand up when put down. Definitely a win, can't wait to use it for the beach!

Exactly what I expected. Heavy duty, lots of pockets, stands up, fits everything. I use this as my everyday bag (I have a toddler and a baby so it doubles as purse/diaper bag).

Tote is perfect for carry-on when traveling!
I've always carried totes, especially when traveling, but wanted one to carry instead of a purse on airlines. This one is perfect! I can carry small essentials, wallet, iPad and paperback book without fear of things falling out when I have to shove it overhead or under seat. Wish it came in darker colors, but close to perfect as is.

Our staple wedding gift
I have lost track as to how many of these I have purchased. The large is a perfect baby shower bag. I usually order the medium, large, and XL as a wedding gifts - and now include the wine totes in that mix. All bags must be monogrammed, of course! We have several sets ourselves and have taken them on countless vacations within the US and abroad. The medium bag is perfect for a change of clothes for the office, for sporting events, the gym, etc. I have one for each board I am a member of and have a monogram indicating which organization is which on each bag. Personally, we must have about 10 of these bags, including different colors for different teams we frequent games of. There are other online companies with a similar product. I have made Lands End our staple/trademark because they are hands down, much higher quality and the numerous inside pockets are fantastic. The small tote is the only size that does not have interior pockets. Lands End totes are a no-fail gift that everyone loves!

This is a nice tote size to take to my swim class....not too big, just right! It holds my towel, hair dryer plus other items. It's also well made.

Quality has decreased
The bag looks the same, but it's clear the quality is not the same as my previous Land's End canvas totes. The stitching is coming undone at the top, and the bottom has started to fade. I'm disappointed because after only a month or so of normal use, the bag looks as worn as my previous ones have after 2-3 years.
I've noticed my other LE purchases the past year or two have had the same problem with quality (cords, dresses, etc.), but that's just my two cents.

The more I use this bag, the more I love it! The Medium size is the most 'purse-like' size, and is the biggest you'll want to go for everyday use. It can hold all of your day-to-day items, plus a change of clothes or your gym clothes, all in one place. It's also extremely comfortable on the shoulder, even when it's full. The feature that I find the most useful is the way it holds its shape, so if you're coming in the door and looking for your keys, and only have one hand free, you can go straight to the pocket inside without having to dig around a slouchy purse. It's deep and zippable, so it feels secure to walk around with. I adore it!

I now have two bags, the medium and the large. I love them. I can carry so much in each bag. The large was a bit to large for what I planned on using it for, but it turns out is perfect for so many things. Love them both.
