This is the best "grab & go bag" I've had in years! It holds everything whether for daily use or travel and manages to look presentable in the process. I added one of those interior purse organizers to complete the functionality. It's lightweight and high quality for the price too. I bought black, tan and brick. My only complaint? You ran out of Navy Blue!

I like the tote size with the many outside pockets for your cellphone, glasses and cosmetics to have easy access to quickly. I don't like the material used as it makes the bag limp with no form and unless you have the bag full, it just drops and becomes shapeless. The straps are too short also to even get over your shoulder. I love the tote, but it needs to be perfected.

        Comments about Tote Bag by National®:

        This is a good general bag for daily trips to the office or a road trip as it holds a great many items. It is a little big and bulky for any sort of dressier occasion. Lightweight and generally easy to carry, I would prefer the straps be just a little longer to make it easier to carry over my shoulder. It could use more pockets on the inside as everything tends to shift around, although that makes it easier to put in larger or bulkier items you need to carry. One of those interchangeable purse organizer insert bags would probably be a good idea

            i bought it thinking the straps were as pictured - they aren't even half as long giving only 1 option to carrying it which isn't always comfortable. it is large and holds everything i need - pockets galore!!

                I bought this tote to keep in my car, to hold all those extra essentials that never seem to fit in the glovebox, eg. cellphone charger, tissues, wet-ones, mints, hand-lotion. It works great for me. The gray color matches my car's interior, and my purse is now so much lighter on my shoulder! Thanks for offering such a handy and well-made product!

                              This bag is large enough to find items by pushing them aside, not taking them out. Place for cell phone - side pockets hold mugs- zippered pockets and purse provide the security needed. Just love it and am thinking about ordering a spare

                                My husband has many doctor's appointments at a hospital 100 miles away so we are gone most of the day. This bag has room for my kindle,snacks, medications, and all other essentials . The outside end pockets are deep enough that I'm not afraid of losing my sunglasses or water bottle. The outside zippered pocket is perfect for my keys and cell phone. The pocket with the velcro is perfect for essential medical reports. I found the straps to be just right and they do fit over my shoulder. I bought two in two different colors and plan to buy more. I will be getting rid of my expensive quilted bags that are not big enough!

                                  I use the tote as my "everyday" purse. It holds all my essentials, is well organized, and I like the fact that it sits flat without turning over.

                                  Love this bag! Use it as my "personal bag" when flying. Also, use as a bag to carry a sweater or light jacket when sightseeing. I wish the straps were adjustable so they could be cross-body for security purposes.The lining came loose after several uses, but I had some heavy items in it.

                                  Bought with the intention of carry-on for plane trip. Will put wallet and extra stuff in it and carry as 2nd item with laptop.
