This is a great bag. It comes with three separate pouches in addition to side pockets built into the interior. I use it for the gym and it works perfectly. On a side note, the color is really attractive and I have lots of positive feedback from people.
A friend at work brought this in and although we both love the bag, we really wish the drop on the straps was longer than 9 inches. If you have this bag full or are wearing a bulkier coat, this bag will not fit under your arms comfortably. Please consider adding another 2- 3 inches to the drop length.
I've had this bag for 4-5 years and it still looks like new. As a airplane carry-on, nothing could be better - it holds my blanket, neck pillow, laptop, tablet, kindle, earphones, cosmetics, wallet, etc., and easily slides under the seat. Plus, it folds up into nothing to fit inside a suitcase if you plan to shop and bring home cool stuff. And, you look well-groomed when you're carrying it.
Like my Kate this is also my Everything Bag...but for now it's my shopping and weekend getaway bag. I will definitely be purchasing another one in a different color.
Love the weight! Love the size! Love the 3 pouches! I put the bag and pouches (turned inside out) in my wash machine, hand wash cycle, and all came out perfect. I do not put in the dryer. A shoulder strap would make this bag perfect (which is why I rated with 4 stars, since 4.8 was not an option), and I am keeping faith one will be added for this great tote! I just suggested this tote to a pregnant colleague seeking a baby bag that would work for her, the baby, and her husband. Thanks MZW!
it meets all my needs!
I got the large metro tote in plum oxford just before a weekend trip for a wedding in Austin and then vacation to Hawaii. Talk about "just in time!" It fit everything I needed for the wedding (including jewelry and three pairs of shoes), as well as all the essentials for an 8-hour flight (think water bottle, iPad, socks, snacks, moisturizer, and much more etc). I am beyond impressed with the quality and functionality of this tote, not to mention the gorgeous color.
My other weekenders are so lonely - because since I received the Large Metro Tote, it's the only one I use. Amazing that it's so light and holds so much! I can fit everything I need for a weekend away. The 3 pouches are also handy for staying organized.
This bag is a great size, color and the weight of it will blow your mind. It's especially cute with a contrasting tassel to take it to the next level. My only complaint is that it gets dirty pretty easily. It's only noticeable because of the red color. It just shows dirt. Easily cleaned though.
I carry a ton of things with me everyday and am always trying to find a great bag that doesn't look like a weekender. This is a fantastic (and light!) bag, packable and, with 3 different-sized pouches, greatly organized! I really love the whole line of MZWallace and already planning my next purchases. Check out the video on how much you can pack in this bag and how. Was key to my purchase.
My girlfriend love this bag so much.
Beautiful size with a roomy squared bottom. Three days of outfits, books, sneakers fit easily. I use it for weekends out of the city and take the train, whenever I carry it after a few minutes I do wish it had a shoulder strap. The handles don't fit easily over a winter coat. In the summer no problem over a tee shirt. Otherwise its a great bag, probably best if you don't walk too far or use public transportation carrying it.
I love love love this bag! Can we please have a matching black wallet?
I saw a woman with this bag when I was in Heathrow Airport recently and she kindly shared how wonderful the bag was and started pulling things out of it while she was beaming! I ordered it online immediately!It's the chicest, most functional, easy, versatile accessory I own! Great for air travel, gym and work toss-in-everything bag! I love the inner detachable bags and the leather trim! I'm getting another one in a bright color...now!
This is a great bag for everyday or travel. It is VERY light and has 3 pouches inside to help with locating items. It folds flat to add to a suitcase in case we shop too much. I have now ordered the smaller one also. Unfortunately the Carmel was out of stock. Seems others like it also!
