This bag is HUGE!!!!!!! I honestly was not expecting such a massive bag..... It can hold anything and everything...
The outside of this tote backpack has 5 pockets alone! That's a good amount of pockets for not even being to the inside yet! The inside has 11 pockets from what I've found so far. This bag has seriously changed my life. It is so great for days that I walk to work and need to bring this that and the other thing! And with all the smaller pockets on the inside it's really easy to keep everything and organized. All the pockets also make it really easy to bring on essentials like hand sanitizer, inhalers, cards, chap stick, etc.
As far as wearing it as a backpack it is a bit big for me.. I honestly was really excited to get this for the backpack feature, but it feels a bit awkward on my back because it is so wide. Even though it is wide, I still use it as a backpack because it is very convenient and it does hold SO much stuff!! But as a tote I am completely in love!
I use this bag for everything. I originally purchased this bag to use on a weekend trip to but didn't think that I would like it so much. It is huge. I was able to fit my laptop, 3 tablets, chargers, the basics you would carry in a purse, wallet, keys, chapstick, etc and I still had room to go. My absolute favorite thing about this bag is how many pockets there are. There are 5 on the outside and a bunch on the inside so you have a little spot for everything. On the inside it is bright orange (I purchased the grey one) and it's definitely not my favorite color but I was able to find anything I went in the bag for in a few seconds. I also like that it has backpack straps with it. It makes it convenient to hold with two little ones. I've also used it as an overnight bag and to go to the beach. It works for any occasion. I would recommend it to anyone needing a good tote bag.
This bag was such a smart purchase. I was using another tote and it was hurting my back. This bag, however, holds all of the same stuff as my last bag and doesn't weigh as much to begin with, so its all a little lighter. I switch between tote and backpack daily (walking to and from work in backpack, then tote while teaching and between meetings). I've included a picture of how much stuff I usually carry to get an idea of carrying capacity.
The outside pockets are spacious and are easy to access while carrying the bag or while seated on the floor. I usually can't find my phone but the outside pockets make it very easy to access and not lose. The inner mesh pockets are useful for compartmentalizing things like the backpack straps when they aren't in use.
What isn't pictured is that the tote straps connect to the bag with magnetic clasps, so there is less strain on the leather stays (not sure what they're called but they keep the handles from moving around or separating from the bag). The backpack straps are very comfortable and stable. The tote bag straps are wide and feel very comfortable. They are comfortably wide on my shoulder, but sometimes through the chaos of carrying teaching supplies from room to room, I frequently lose hold of one strap (they like to slip off if I don't hold them securely with a designated hand) and my bag wants to spill its contents (cue the elbow grip).
I have had this purse for a couple of months now and its still holding up well. I carry alot of stuff in it along with a water bottle. I like that it has a full closure zipper on top and many pockets on the outside for easier access for smaller things , which nothing has fallen out. The straps are good lengths.
Material is good quality.
Great bag for everyday use and perfect for a student like me.
You can easily fit an Ipad and couple of note books and etc
has three open front pockets and can fit my water bottle easily
Zippered top which is nice!
Rated 4/5 only because I have yet to see how long it will last
I wanted a convenient and sturdy bag to carry all of my nursing gear and other belongings to and from work. I'm very happy with this bag because of the practicality and minimalistic nature to it. I can carry all of my essentials organized in specific spots so I know where to find them. The quality is great even with a heavy load to carry. It has strong stitching and it's made of a canvas-type material. The initial thing that caught my eye was the colours of the bags, I had a hard time choosing. Overall, a great product.
I love this purse! The colour (Grey) is so pretty, it looks very well made (I haven't used it yet bc it just arrived), It is not bulky, shoulder straps are the right length and the longer strap is indeed a bonus. This is obviously a company that takes great pride in their product (and so they should).
I gave this bag to my sister as a gift and she absolutely loves it! She has said she has already received a few compliments on the bag. I really loved the canvas material and the bag is spacious. It doesn’t show in the pictures but had a nice zipper closure at the top. The straps are also a nice material and very functional.
The bag has been made of a high quality, stylish tote backpack. This bag is so large and roomy for tons of stuff. Their are lots of pockets and the bright orange inner lining makes it easy to find all the stuff we ladies like to stuff in a bag. So far I have used this when out with my toddlers and I need bring lots of extras. I honestly think it is a little on the big size for a backpack, but it is still functional and you can also use it as a tote. I have a 17 inch laptop and it fits perfectly in the bag. It is definitely big enough to carry a large laptop and whatever extras you might need. I ordered the grey and brown backpack and the color is a little darker than I expected. I kinda wish that I would have tried out the army green color. Overall, this is a nice product and I don't think you will be disappointed if you are looking for a large, well-made tote/backpack.
Stylish! I really love this. Option of handles OR backpack style straps that are removable
Tons and tons of storage space. Lots of pockets inside and out.
Wipe clean interior
I really love this bag! I have 2 and 4 year old daughters and use this as the "don't need a diaper bag but still need a bag for snacks and random stuff." Snacks in one pocket, pull ups and wipes in another, changes of clothes in another. I can put my keys and phone in the outside pockets and don't have to worry they'll fall out, because the pockets are as deep as the bag!
I also don't mind taking it out without my kids - it's a little large for my needs but I don't mind. I'm so used to having an entire diaper bag that when I'm alone, all I need is my wallet and phone, ha.
It has a good quality, it's huge (my Dell lap top fits in with space left for more stuff).
I travel weekly for work, and I was looking for a bag that I could carry as a backpack on the plane and then use as a shoulder bag once I got to my office. This bag seemed perfect, so I ordered it. When the bag came, I loved the way it looked. The gray fabric looks really nice, and the black straps were comfortable and sleek looking.
Easy to clean, which is nice and has a number of mesh pockets around the bottom of the bag. It reminded me a little of a fishing vest. For traveling, I need my bag to be able to carry my work laptop (15'' macbook), a toiletry bag, and a change of clothes.
If you are looking for a bag to carry a specific amount of stuff, this might work for you.
This bag is exactly what I was looking for. It's very attractive, well made and has removable backpack straps. I have a similar bag that I love but it didn't have the straps and sometimes while traveling or doing a lot of walking with a bunch of "kid stuff" in the bag my back gets tired and needs the change to backpack mode. I LOVE this bag already.Overall, I really love the bag and will brag about it a lot to friends.
I have used this bag for years now and it still holds up! I’ve traveled internationally with it, as well as use it as my laptop bag for work commutes. It’s the perfect size to fit all your necessities and a 15” laptop, yet compact enough to carry around as a purse. I’ve used it for so many reasons, I can’t keep track. I always get compliments on it too. The material is durable, and converting it into a back pack is easy and surprisingly comfortable. If you want a stylish, yet fully functional and durable purse/bag for work, travel, or fun, get this bag!
I was in need of selecting a canvass bag needed for a professional project she I working on so I ordered one of these. After receiving it, I and my husband were both extremely impressed with the size, durable construction and the quality zippered top. We immediately placed an order for 3 additional bags and presented as gifts to others that had collaborated on the project. The selection of colors was also impressive. We would definitely order these again.
I have been looking for a great convertible tote/backpack for a while and this one is pretty close to perfect.
Things I love:
- stylish - when I am wearing it as a tote it actually looks like a tote!! This was not true of so many other convertible backpacks I looked at. I like the material, though I will be interested to see how it wears.
- ease of use I love that the straps are long enough to go over my shoulders. And the straps snap on super quickly. Also, the backpack straps are easy to put on AND they are adjustable (again, not true of many other options out there).
- stands up when you put it down - this is so important to me. the bottom is sizeable and flat, so the bag doesn't slouch or need to be leaned against something when you put it on the floor.
- side pockets! I love this for my keys and when I need to have things easily accessible
- comfortable to wear. I have now used it for a few days and walked to work (2 miles) twice with it, loaded with my computer, lunch, breakfast, coffee, papers, etc. It felt great
- holds a ton! Yesterday I took it to the gym before work and fit my laptop, lunch, AND swim towel, swimsuit, and small gym items. I love that this can fit so much.
I just wish it had a laptop sleeve!!! It has internal pockets but nothing to store a laptop in. This is the only reason I deducted a star -- If it had this I think the bag would be perfect!
Note: photos show the bag with the straps un-buttoned and lowered (I had just used it as backpack). To convert it you just pull the straps up and button them into place.
I LOVED this bag! I wish I could give it five stars. My husband loved it as well.
I have only one surprise about this bag- I didn't realize how big it was. I quickly got over that, as I loved it more and more!
I have needed a big bag for as long as I have been a mom. Now I am a working mom, who still needs a big bag, but every other big bag has always been a black hole. Can't find anything, can't see anything.
This tote bag has SO MANY POCKETS!
It is really stylish-looking.The outside has one large pocket, and then 4 smaller pockets. Inside, there is a good sized zippered pocket, and then there are nylon pockets in the same color (orange) as the lining, as well as black mesh pockets. It is so great to have pockets that I can see through, so that I actually can see the contents.
The bag is large. I have a big laptop which I use for work . I have my day planner, notebooks, a first aid kit, my wallet, and sometimes more (like a sweater for me or one of my younger kids). So yes, I would totally use this as my carry on bag if I flew somewhere. It is large enough for travel essentials, and set up perfectly to organize what's in it.
you can carry it over the shoulder, or backpack-style- LOVE this. my bags are always slipping off my shoulder, since I almost always am carrying a child, and at least a shopping bag or something at the same time. I love the straps, which means I have both hands free, and nothing is falling and pulling my arm out of its socket because it's so heavy.
For work, I used to have three bags- a tote, a laptop case, and a smaller bag to keep my wallet and make-up. If I wanted to, I could condense to just one now. I still mostly keep my laptop separate because it's heavy, and bulky.
Like I said above, I didn't realize just how big it was, and so the only thing I can say is.... I would check out this company's smaller bag for an on-the- go purse, because I love their product!
I'm looking at the dimensions on the bag description as I write this, and I'm still confused. It seems a lot bigger than I thought it would be, and although I am NOTORIOUS for having no sense of what a measurement looks like (unless it's for baking), I'm really happy that it's larger than I thought.
I've been using the Tote Backpack every day for several weeks, and it's great for my on the go lifestyle. I was hoping it would be a little bit more tailored looking but it's canvas. While it's not super-sleek, it's reasonably attractive, has good details like big interior pockets, mesh compartments inside, and plenty of room for my laptop. The convertible straps are great, and once you get used to manually adjusting them between backpack-style and tote-style, it's great. I wasn't sure I would like the way they work (you have to manually slide them back into the side pockets if you want to use the backpack comfortably) but I got used to it quickly and now I'm a fan.
I love the big interior and exterior pockets. I have a lot of crap that I shuttle on public transportation, to and from work; including a travel umbrella, a work and a personal cell phone, a small e-reader, backup cords and things for my laptop, a sweater or jacket, and more. It all fits. The sweater addition makes zipping up the middle section a little tricky, but I've been making it work. The interior pockets are bright orange, which I love because they're orange (I love orange) and it's easy to see what's inside the pockets. No more digging around in my backpack blindly for the black computer mouse. Easy to put everything in it's own spot and then find it all later.
The zip pocket is a critical piece of this whole puzzle of stuff that I carry. I must be able to zip the compartment that holds my laptop. I don't think I need to spell out why (public transportation + backpack). My laptop is just short enough to clear the zipper, and as long as I don't have the laptop sitting on top of anything, I'm golden!
I'm really enjoying this bag and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who commutes on a regular basis.
TEN STARS PLUS! I LOVE the look the size the feel the room of this tote! I might as well give away all the other many totes I've tried over the years- this one DOES IT ALL! I didn't really think I would try it as a backpack, but decided to give it a try- and WOW! I cannot wait to use it going from car to airport to check in, then around the airport while waiting for my flight as well as boarding! So many inside pockets to use in different sizes, outside easy accessible large pocket on one side and two more a bit smaller on the other side! It came with a nice cloth bag you can use to carry the bay in or use as a liner inside or tuck it in one of the pockets inside to have a spare cloth tote bag to use by itself! The PRICE is GREAT- others totes this size that don't have the additional choice of using as a backpack are running $20 to $40 more without the room and pocket choices. This is my all time FAVORITE purchase from Amazon!
This tote is going to be my personal carry on item and my go everywhere tote on my trip! I will be buying more as gifts and a spare for myself to keep on hand in my car for unplanned shopping adventures! What a GREAT GIFT for Sisters, Daughters and Girlfriends!
I had the opportunity to experience firsthand the GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE this company offers, the reviews that speak of their OUTSTANDING Customer Service are completely TRUE!
This is the BEST backpack tote I have purchased. I am such a bag person and have searched high and low for a backpack tote that is stylish, yet practical. I ordered the black one and it’s great because it goes with everything. I like that it’s large enough that I only need one bag! I can fit all my necessary folders and paperwork, laptop, charger, personal items, and a bottle of water inside. I can even squeeze in a small lunch bag. I love that it zippers up and that helps all the items stay in place inside. The outside pockets are great for accessing quickly needed items like keys and an umbrella. The straps are great because they are leather but they are wide enough that they don’t dig into my shoulders when I use it as an over the shoulder bag. I love the backpack feature. I recently went on a trip and used the backpack feature the whole time. I highly recommend Taste Drink Go’s backpack tote.
