Women's Print Coated Canvas Small Shopper
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!

Red is more orangey
I agree with everyone that this is the perfect size. I love the coated material and polka dots! But the red is a little more orangey than red. Also, it doesn't appear as shiny as in the photos. I would go for the other colors next time -- maybe the tan or purple. If it goes on sale, I'd buy another one and I would definitely give it to my sister as a gift. I also got the monogram and selected a different color than the recommended and it turned out well. It's a great every day bag rain or shine!

this bag! It's the perfect size, the coating makes it great in the rain and it looks upscale for a tote. As for other comments about cheap plastic trim and a dusty coating..... I don't see it. I purchased the "Fossil Dot". The black trim and handle look really sharp, as close to leather as you could get. The finish is matte, not dusty. There's a distinct aesthetic difference between the two. I also like the lining inside, the well thought out pockets (open and zippered) and the one-snap close is just right for securing the top without losing the nice shape of the bag. My only suggestion would be a small outside pocket and only because I got used to this feature on the medium canvas tote that I used all summer. Hopefully we'll see that added next season.....

Perfect size & weight less than perfect finish
I agree this bag is the perfect size. At 5'1", I don't want to carry a suitcase! I wish it came in higher quality materials and something other that dots. I love the light weight materials and would carry it every day if I had better choices of colors - high gloss solid black or a sophisticated two tone. Overall, glad I bought it. I have used it several times already. (I change purses almost every day.)

Love the size.
This is a perfect size for a petite person, 5 foot nothing. I love the coating on the bag. But one word of advice, there is some kind of coating/residue on the bag and it leaves residue on dark fabric. I wiped down the the bag with a magic eraser bar, and this seemed to get rid of the problem. Other than that I love it and had several complements on it and the matching scarf.

I was expecting a true black bag with a sheen (gloss) and contrasting cream colored dots - I thought it would be sharp looking bag. Instead I got a sludgy sorta dark gray with beige dots and a yucky matte-plasticy finish. To top it off the faux leather handles/trim are super-cheap looking (devils in the details) - in today's market there is a lot if excellent faux leather so no excuse for this. The only nice thing about the bag is the interior which is well-made. I've never before been so disappointed in a Lands End product. Looks like a $9.99 bag you'd buy from your neighbor kid's fundraiser out of obligation.

I was aware this bag was a coated fabric but from the pics I expected a high gloss finish - whereas its actually a very dull matte finish :( Also the black is really more of a gray - I had expected a bold black (with sheen) with classy contrasting cream dots but in fact it is a dull, lifeless looking fabric :( The faux leather trim is also rather cheesy - the 'devil is in the details' and frankly, faux leather these days can be excellent - so for the price I had expected a really good faux leather trim. However the interior is really nice!! Great detail and finish on the interior! But I will be returning it - it looks like a $9.99 bag but I didn't pay $9.99 and I had expected something really good-looking.

Love this bag!
I purchased this bag online after seeing it in the store. So yes, I was aware that the outside had a coating and I don't know why they didn't mention it in the description- but I really like it and it wipes off easily. My husband jokingly called it a "cooler bag" :) but it is pretty cute . This bag is sturdy and the quality is great- nice details! Perfect size for all the junk I seem to accumulate in my purse (and room for a little more). Anyway, I think it is pretty cool, different, but very nice.
BTW I ordered the "black dot" which is more like a navy blue.
