Women's Print Coated Canvas Large Shopper
Sturdy and Stylish
I was looking for a tote to take to work to carry papers, folders, and lunch. I wanted a tote that would stand up to commuting and being tossed around. This met my expectation. It sits flat on a surface is firm enough to not slouch and I love the polka dots. Strong straps that do not cut into my shoulder even when very full.

Nice tote but handles could be longer
This is a great looking tote bag and would be perfect for fall and winter ... except when you want to wear it on your shoulder with a wool coat! I tried this tote with several of my winter coats but the handles barely fit around the shoulder. Not comfortable at all. Lands' End, adding a couple of inches would do the trick. Sorry, but I had to return it.

nice looking all purpose tote
I purchased the black print tote to use this winter. It is very generous in size and looks good. The drop on the handles is long enough to put over your shoulder while wearing a winter coat. The only thing I would add would be a zipper on the top so I could stow it under the seat on a plane.

Sturdy, attractive and so, so handy!
I purchased this item last fall, and it still looks great!. I used it every day to carry my books and papers to work, and even with the heavy load some days, it never cracked/tore or showed signs of stress. I bought the black with tan polka dots - just love it. I don't think it looks cheap, as another reviewer mentioned, and even now the bottom and edges still have a nice finish. My only suggestion would be to widen the straps, as the thin handles are not as comfortable when the load is heavy. I really gave it a workout this year, and it came through just fine. The finish of the material makes it easy to wipe off, and it is protective when the weather is bad. I liked the zip pocket as well as the two slip-in pockets. Great item.

I wanted to love this bag as it's a great size and the inside was done very nice, but the outside of the bag looks very cheap! The one I received (blue with black dots) was very dusty and had many color variations/scratches right out of the box. Very disappointing.
So I returned the blue and was willing to give it another try with the fossil dot color but my order was canceled as they are out of stock. Doubly disappointed now!

Love this bag....
So after reading some of the other reviews here I hesitated. Am glad I went ahead and got it -- have had absolutely no problems with this bag whatsoever! Use it as my work carry-all but could easily see switching it over to a weekend need-more-space-than-my-purse type bag too. Love the deep purple polka dot color.....I notice they now have the bag in a black sparkle which looks super fab too! Surface wipes clean easily, a major plus if you have small children lovingly leaving their pawprints on your purse. Lining is super soft, and the inside pocket zipper is dreamy smooth. No, I don't work for Lands End. Just want to give this bag the plug it deserves! Enjoy.

This bag is great! I'm sorry I missed out on another color!! I would order one in each color if you all get these again! I LOVE it!
Thanks LandsEnd, you've done it again!! LOVE LOVE this!

Image depictions off
I bought the black, Was disappointed in the "cheapness" .look to it, more like a discount store item versus Lands End quality. Worse off though, was I loved how the default charteuse green embroidery came across online , looks more of a kelly green, and in person its a neon green. I have a boden wax cloth bag, for about the same price, where the quality far exceeds this one.

Quality sinking to a new low...less than one boat
Such a disappointment...where to begin. The photos do NOT reflect the color or quality of the bag that is pictured as being dark blue. It is purple--Halloween costume purple. The "coated canvas" is not shiny, but dull and full of scrapes. Faux leather handles cheapen the entire look. Worst item I have ever purchased form here. Sticking to the basic canvas totes from now on. Quality control, Lands End? You were sleeping on the job for this one.

Please include outside zip pocket, and top zip closure for future editions of this bag
Polka dots are fun, period. Thank you for making a large and small version of this bag. Bought black with beige dots. As other review said, waxed shiny canvas makes for easy wipe down if dirt gets on it. Making the top zipped would add to the security of the contents (from falling out and also from pick pockets on my commute and when travelling for vacation).
