Women's Print Coated Canvas Small Shopper
Cute bag but too small for my commuting needs
This is a cute, durable bag that fits a wallet, phone, keys, make-up and a book or Ipad. However, on my commute, I also bring my lunch, work files and sometimes a pair of shoes so unfortunately, it's too small for my needs and is going back.

After reading several negative reviews about this product, I decided to give it a try because the price was significantly reduced. I'm so glad I did! This is a really cute bag and the quality is very nice (and I'm a stickler about quality). I ordered dark blue with black polka dots and trim. The blue is a little bit purplish, but still more blue and the faux leather trim is nicer than some real leather that I've seen. I also like the size. The finish is not high gloss, but I don't think it is dusty and worn looking like some other reviews claim.

Great sized tote, durable fabric
I bought this tote to take with me into the office. It was a bit pricey for what I wanted to use it for and Lord knows I don't need to round out my LE tote collection (I own ALL sizes). I work from home mostly, so the odd time that I go downtown I need to take my laptop bag, purse, plus shoes, snacks, water, desk supplies, etc. The aim of this tote was to carry all the extras. When the tote first arrived and I opened it up, I was surprised by the fabric. I expected it to be more like a nylon but it has a strange look and texture to it, almost like a wax. I expect it will hold up well over time. I really like the leather straps, they stand up on their own yet are thin, good length too (even with a winter coat on). I checked it over and decided to try it out....well that was over a month ago and I'm still using it as an everyday purse!! It's got good pockets inside for my iphone, lipsticks and eye class wipes and a little snap to keep the tote closed but the contents still accessible. The polka dots (I ordered the black with tan) are classic and subtle. It's a great size. I have a large wallet, plus my phone and keys, etc. Being winter, it holds my gloves, hat and scarf when I go in a store. Mostly I love that the fabric is durable. I don't have to worry about it getting wet or dirty. Love it and if the price comes down more, I'll be tempted to order another colour!

Adorable looking but very disappointed in the material of this bag. The canvas is coated in a product that feels like wax and the waxy product scratches easily. I returned this product - even though it had been monogrammed (which has been poorly done as well). Definately not worth the cost!

I LOVE Polka Dots!!!
That's what sold me on this bag. I LOVE polka dots! The bag is well made, The matte finish is not a problem. The colour is very nice. What I don't understand is the price. You would think these bags were lined with silk and had a sterling silver zipper pull on the pocket!! As much as I enjoy using this bag, I still don't see why it is so expensive. Even on sale it seemed overpriced. But I bought it anyway because of the polka dots. Guess I'm a little bit crazy. If it had been a solid colour, I wouldn't have ordered it.

It's all I could imagine and more. Lots of pockets inside and a snap closure
Easy to keep clean

make this with a zip top
ordered this in the fossil with black dots as well as in black with brown dots, thinking that i would probably end up using the black more often. but the fossil (a tan, mushroom shade) turned out more attractive in person. while the black and brown had a nice contrast, overall, the combo just made the bag look "old". am now happily using the fossil coloured bag most of the time -- esp since the hubby, who never seems to notice my stuff, actually said my handbag was nice!
if land's end would make this bag in more plain colours, and with a zip top, i'd buy more.

Gave this bag a second chance and it was well worth it
After being unsatisfied with the printed canvas shopper in another color, I gave it another try with the assistance of a stellar Lands' End customer care representative. Not only did she handle my re-order personally, she followed through on everything she promised and I love my new bag in fossil with black dots. I am so pleased with my bag, after putting it to the test for the last month. It has met and surpassed my expectations and it is able to carry what I pack for school-- a couple of books, a tablet, and personal things. Thanks so much, Lands' End, for listening to your customers and making sure we are satisfied.

Right size - just the right everything!
This bag is the right size, the right shape, love the coated canvas....the interior pockets (one with a zipper). I just opened my box and quickly changed bags. This is perfect!
I just may buy another - too bad it does not come in that red plaid the other mid-size tote come in! That would be a spectacular holiday bag!
