This is the best bag! It weighs next to nothing & the straps are very comfortable. I just wish the inside was a light color (pink or orange) so that it would be easier to find things inside the bag
Love the bag. Size, pockets, texture, are all perfect. The maroon is lovely, but it's much more pink than the red pictured.
Let me begin this review by saying I ordered this bag online while at work and it came in 1 day. It was awesome! Overall, this bag is a great size for a weekend trip. I also like it as a carry on when I travel; the large bag can hold my computer and clothing for a short trip. I also recommend the big bag if you put full size bottles of shampoo and a towel in your gym bag. I think having the big and medium bag are a necessity. I will say that when you fist get it the nylon seems like it's a bit flimsy but it holds up well. Overall, I recommend this bag for gym and travel!
My Large Metro Tote is the most stylish and versatile bag I own. Since moving to San Francisco (from Manhattan), I find that I need a larger bag to accommodate all my different activities and weekend trips away! The Large Metro Tote can handle anything I need to take to the gym -- running shoes, spinning gear, swim suit -- and is the perfect bag for a weekend away in Mendocino. The three travel pouches are particularly helpful for keeping organized while still having the flexibility that a large bag provides (including room for a few travel mementos)!
I was always stuffing smaller bags and could never find anything. This bag fits everything and has so many interior pockets, I can keep everything accessible. I was doubtful of a non-leather bag, but this material holds up just as well, and is comfortable to carry.
The Large Metro Tote is the best bag ever. I thought it might be too big, however, it's large, but not so large that it looks awkward or too big to carry. It holds everything for work. You can place your laptop and accessories in the bag with room to spare. It has lots of compartments and three separate pouches. I can even put my shoes in the largest zip bag. It's wonderful. It also works well for travel. If you want to take it for an extra carry-on for the plane it's great. You can pack this in your suitcase and it doesn't add any weight. You'll have it if you need an extra carry-on bag for the way home. The straps fit nice over my shoulders and it's comfortable to carry. One of the best purchases I ever made. Love this bag!
I love this bag as a carry-on while traveling. Spacious and it can hold everything I need for a day of travel
When i first saw this bag in Equinox and it caught my attention i ordered online right away and i have no regrets. I loved it so much so very light to carry all bag and i love the extra purse inside. I always use it rain or shine. Thumbs up!!!!
The size and shape are very convenient for me. I volunteer at a school and need a lg. tote for the items I carry from class to class. It's a shape also ideal for carrying odd shaped items.
I pondered for a long time before i bought this, then i wondered why i did. It's a fabulous travel bag and so light, durable, and roomy! The bonus pouches are a great add-on and extremely useful. I'm now keeping my eye on a smaller one for everyday gym use for me and my daughter.
love this . so comfortable. love love love the wider straps on the bigger bags.
Love this quilted tote. Saw someone on the plane with it and had to have it. Well made and very functional
Excellent travel bag. Very lightweight and durable. Always garners compliments.
Purchased the Large Metro in Camo for a work trip to Austin and instead it has become my everyday bag! Lightweight, durable and beautiful. It perfectly held my laptop, iPad, magazines, food and smaller purse on my recent trip and fit under the seat without any struggle. The detachable pouches help to keep me organized and are great to grab when you are making a quick run into the grocery store. This is a must have everyday bag!
I love the large Metro tote! I recently took it on a trip to Europe and it held everything I needed. The extra zippered pouches are a bonus and help keep things organized. I like the softness of the bag and the face that you can fold it up and use it as an extra tote. I highly recommend this bag!
Beautiful, chic color, matches well with any outfit . A great weekender or everyday bag. I love it's material and durability.
Love the bag both, as a travel bag as a gym bag or on overnights
great weekend travel bag. just the right size...plus with 3 zipper bags inside, great for holding cosmetics and small things. very pretty, useful bag!
I got this bag and found it so wonderful for traveling by plane that when we started doing road trips I bought it in medium and small. It's amazing how much these bags hold and their durability is exactly what one can expect from all MZW products.
It was hard for me to choose my favorite bag because I love all my MZ Wallace bags. This one is my favorite for traveling, going to the gym or to work. I can fit everything I need in it plus some extras.
The Large Metro Tote is a classic. Chic enough to carry to work and off-site meetings and cool enough to carry with the kids on the weekend. I think I need one in every colour!
I bought the Metro Tote a few months ago, after probably a year of being obsessed with it, but not buying it. My only regret is not buying it sooner. This is the best "everything" bag. I take it when I am out running errands for the day, use it as a carry on when traveling, take it to the beach, etc. It holds a ton and has some great pockets to hold smaller personal items. I also love the smaller bag inside of it for important things, such as passport when traveling or makeup. I have the Cosmic print, which is so colorful and fun. I get so many compliments every time I use this bag. Great purchase and great, fun, everything bag!
I bought this bag back in March and now it is September. I travel a lot for work and this bag carries everything I need. It rides nicely on top of my rollaboard suitcase and fits perfectly under the seat on the plane. No wear and tear, scuffs or anything show on this bag and I wear it hard. I was on a plane last week and two other ladies stopped me and asked where I got this bag. I have no regrets, it's perfect.
I love this bag! It is lightweight, holds everything I need (and then some), and looks great. I want it in every color!
Love this bag! It fits everything I need for yoga. Mat, clothes, two hydro flasks AND my lunch. It was a little bigger than I imagined it would be but I'm so glad I got the larger size.
This is the best bag ever! Although it is incredibly light, it is very sturdy. I carry my heavy schoolbooks, lunch, tests and more, and the bag still looks perfect!
Since purchasing this tote I've hardly switch bags. Buying in as many colors as possible!!!????
Great bag, super lightweight and so spacious. The three inside bags are great to organize, especially for travel! Definitely worth it, already want another!
One of my favorite bags! Love how much it can hold and how little space it takes when folded it. I've even thrown it in the wash and it has come out fine. Truly a classic. And a necessity living in NYC where you need to pack everything in one bag.
I have purchased one of these totes. I always use it when I am traveling to local or overseas, because it can carry my computer, my ipad my phone, even my handbag can also go inside the large tote. It is also very light weight. I love it so much. I want to buy more some other colors too.
I bought 2 Metro totes and love them!!! I am the type of person to change my bag daily but with those 2 bags, I carry them most. The pouch that come with the totes are awesome!! I am saving to buy 2 more totes.
I love this bag! It is lightweight, roomy and perfect for carrying items to work, to the beach or through the airport. It is also fantastic to pack in a suitcase because it is so light and can collapse down to almost nothing. The only improvement I would make is to add an exterior zipper pocket for those items you may want handy without digging through the whole tote.
My favorite go to bag for traveling. Fits easily in any space on the plane and tons of room for all my stuff and whatever my husband decides to throw in.
I had bought this tote a few months ago not knowing how much I would love it!! It's so light and roomy I can't carry anything else. It's perfect with any outfit, whether I'm going out of just hitting the grocery store.. It's the perfect every day tote, and I can't wait to invest in another!
I recently purchased this metro bag--as I am A Devoted Fan of the metro--this is my new fall bag--I believe I have purchased the metro for every season--that is not to take away from the other styles I have purchased and just love--I am a firm believer in MZ Wallace and have gotten many of my friends to become faithful true believers--my main concern is that the quality remains the same and not become lesser --thank you
This bag is fantastic - fits so much but is light to start. I love that it zips at the top to close everything in. The straps can sometimes fall off of your shoulder, but as long as I twist/layer them a little it's all fine. The inside pouch is awesome too, though sometimes I wish it was a different color than the bag so I could find it more easily. Overall, it's as fabulous as I hoped it would be!
This is my third MZW bag and it won't be my last. I love this bag! I use it daily to carry my workout clothes, but more than that when I travel it serves as a great carry-on to hold cosmetic and toiletry bags, my pocketbook, iPad, a book, shoes and more! Plus it can fit under the seat in front of you because it is soft and shapeless. The material is light but sturdy and the 3 smaller bags that come inside with it are handy for different items (especially on a trip). Don't hesitate for a minute if you've been looking at it!
Love this bag! great for travel and super light.
Love my quilted tote -it is big enough to safely hold everything I need on the airplane and light and flexible enough to go under the seat so I can stow the roller suitcase above my seat. I wear on over my arm, over my shoulder, and once as a backpack. It is sturdy and cleans up well. Love it, love it, love it.
I love the structure of the bag, but found the large quilted tote to be a bit too big. Things were getting lost inside. It depends what you use the bag for. I used it as an everyday bag and found it just too big. Maybe better for an overnight/travel bag. I ended up getting the medium size for an everyday bag.
By far the most versatile, low maintenance, stylish bag ever! With 3 kids the metro tote is always my go to bag. I have it in so many colors. Always eager for the upcoming seasons, means new metro tote colors! Great handles that work over your shoulder, or on arm. Extra pouches for literally everything. I can't say enough good things about these bags!
NOTHING ELSE I NEED TO SAY BEYOND "ITS THE BEST BAG EVER!"
I LOVE my metro tote - it is the perfect travel bag companion. It is so light weight and you can fit so much into it that its perfect as a carry on bag. The material is so soft that it feels nice as well. I also use it for overnight stays since it can fit so much stuff.
I absolutely love this bag. I take it with me everywhere I travel and it is to this date, the best travel bag anyone can own.
I love this bag! The metro tote is my go-to bag for everything: air travel, gym, school, pool, weekend trips, etc. I have the large tote in electric blue and metallic garnet, and the medium bag in the the multi-color palette. I can't stop buying them. I love the zipper bags included inside. And they make great gifts!
I just bought the Large Metro tote in Navy. It's been on my must-have list for a couple years. I love the look of the bag and the feather-light weight although there are a couple things I don't like: it's too big for my 5'2" frame and my laptop really flops around in it so that at times it is completely horizontal instead of vertical, making it awkward and difficult to carry. I see other women carrying the same bag, but it must be in a smaller size. I wanted a bag I could wear over my shoulder that would fit my 13" air. But sadly I am wallowing in this bag. I guess it was meant for weekend travel?
I'm planning a trip abroad, in the near future, and feel that the Large Metro Tote would be the perfect traveling accessory. It's extremely functional and lightweight. Actually, several of my friends have the medium size one. One uses it as a tote when tooling around NYC. Another one uses for her everyday go to bag. Both women absolutely adore it! Enough said!
This tote is a very lightweight bag and it has a zip top. It's not only my work bag, but my travel and Gym bag. It can fit anything you need for travel. Features comfortable reinforced handles. I like how the bottom doesn't sag out like most bags . Very durable. Love it so much.
I am OBSESSED with this bag. It's wonderful for every day, for everything. It is incredibly sturdy, I always get a ton of compliments and it still looks brand new after two years. Best investment! :)
Best travel tote ever. Not only great weekender, but love how it can pack down for long international trips in my case. It's a must have - style is on point, always get tons of compliments! The material is really great and cleans well!
I love my Navy Blue Large Metro Tote! Great travel bag, it's a light weight bag that carries all a girl needs as a savvy carry on, as well as, day to day to office/around town. Plus it comes with three pouches to keep things organized. I use one to hold my cell phone charger, ear buds, cords and ipad mini, another one as a make up bag and the third for travel snacks. Quilting makes this bag very attractive!
My Metro tote is perfect for travel. The inside has attached zippered bags that act as an organizing system! It is Orange. So, of course, I added the Orange and Pink Long leather tassel to the handle to make it even brighter and prettier. I take it on both commercial and private planes. Either way, there is no added weight to the design and I am able to fill it with everything I need in flight and valuables I dare not check in my luggage. BTW, I get stopped in airports and shopping by women who want to know where I bought it! I bought it in the MZ Wallace store in NYC and it's been around the world. Effortless;) Thanks for asking!
My cousin introduced me to MZ Wallace last time I visited her in NYC - we went to the shop and it was love at first site. The Large Metro Tote was my first MZ Wallace purchase and certainly won't be my last! I bought it initially as a carry-on for travelling, but it has made it's way into my daily life as my work tote. I love how lightweight it is and the little zippered bags it comes with are so convenient for keeping everything organized. I have received so many compliments on the color (gold) and style and can't wait to add to my collection!
I use it daily as a gym bag. The Large Metro Tote carries everything with ease. It is lightweight, super strong, and I appreciate the 5 inner pockets. And it comes with 3 zippy pouches in the same lightweight material! I've taken this bag camping and it cleans up with ease. I debated about getting the medium or large and am happy i got the large. The material is so soft that I can squish it to fit small spaces in my car/trunk. Definitely a keeper!!
Wonderful bag when traveling. It is so light weight and can fit into any suitcase because I just roll it up. It retains its shape and always looks great. I use it for those "extras" I always seem to accumulate. I wouldn't travel without it!
Love the color, love the size. Favorite bag!
Great bag used it all summer and still looks like new
I absolutely ADORE my metro tote. It is super light weight and easy to carry, but hold a lot. It's perfect for days and the pool or park with my kids.
I love everything about this bag. The lightness of it, the size, the 3 pouches that come with it. It allows me to carry everything I need to go to work and my gym clothes. The different pouches allows me to separate different items in my bag and easily find them. I love it!!!
Love the room and function of the large metro tote. It is super durable with no signs of wear after it's been stuffed in overhead bins and under the seat in airplanes countless times. I love the fact that the bag itself is almost weightless so while i can fill it with a heavy laptop, makeup bag and a change of shoes it holds all that and more and doesn't add strain to toting it around. Highly recommend this bag in every size.
I absolutely LOVE this tote. It holds so much & I love that the top zipper closure-it ensures nothing falls out & all my loot is hidden. It's the perfect tote for work-it holds my laptop shoes & handbag without looking frumpy. I do wish the handles were just an inch longer.
I actually purchased this bag in a print that is no longer available. I cannot recommend it enough. I was reluctant to purchase it because I see them everywhere - but there's a reason for that! It is my new go-to travel bag (replacing my much more expensive Philip Lim bag). It is crazy lightweight, holds a ton and is comfortable to carry. The best part is the pouches that come with, the interior organization and key strap. I also use my Truffle pouches (TSA rules!) and pack my shoes in dust bags as well. I like to have everything in it's place - and despite the large size, this bag is easy to keep organized. I have no doubt that I could pack for 3-4 days in this bag. It is a little large to carry day to day - but awesome for everything else.
I love love love this bag. Both my sister and I have this bag in different colors. We plan to buy my aunt this bag. When my aunt saw us both with this bag she had to have it. I love this bag for many reasons. 1) it is trendy yet classic 2) great utility 3) durabliity 4) looks like Chanel. I would highly recommend this bag.
I love my metro tote. Is great for travel and weekend trips. I can fit clothes and accessories in it. I also use it for my kids when we travel as a diaper bag. Easy to clean, store and use. Love love love this bag!
I received this bag - my first MZW tote - from my brother and his girlfriend for my birthday. (I'm lucky his girlfriend has great taste.) I travel cross-country for work, and this tote is a perfect carry on. It's lightweight, durable, fits so much stuff, and is also sleek and stylish. Since I got this tote, I've purchased another medium tote for myself, and another one as a gift for my friend, who saw me carrying it and fell in love.
This gorgeous tote is amazing! Perfect while traveling. I love it!
This is a great bag. I have this one the medium tote and I love them. Great for travel. Excellent quality!!!
I purchased the Black Large Metro Tote after being introduced to the line by a fellow fashionista. I like the simple, classic look. I used it for a 4 day city trip and I was quite pleased with the performance as well! I also purchased the Large Sutton Tote but have not had the opportunity to wear it yet. The bags seem to be well made, sturdy for packing A LOT of whatever. I'm definitely going to add to my collection.
Love this for everything from a fun weekend tote to a dynamite knitting bag! Great for managing lots of stuff without being too heavy.
I love my large metro bag! It as an amazing everyday carry all bag, especially with kids. I would recommend this for anyone with kids who has tons to carry. I love MZ Wallace!
This is the sexiest gym bag and by far the best travel bag I have ever found. I am a huge fan and have turned on quite a few friends/family members to share in the love of this lightweight easy travel bag.
This is a must have bag for the beach, travel, or gym. Completely weightless and roomy. Get a few different colors!
The large Metro Tote is my go- to travel bag, I take it on all my trips. It is a great carry-on bag that fits so much stuff. The 3 pouches help to keep it organized. It's so light weight yet incredible sturdy. It is truly my bag of tricks. I get everything I need for a long weekend in it and more. Love.love, love this bag ! Whoever designed is a genius ....
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!
I received this tote today (the Large Metro) and it is FABULOUS! I love the color and the size which is not too big at all. The bag also feels great, nice and soft but very durable. It has such a classy look to it that I plan on getting the smaller size in black soon. Gotta have that basic classic black bag right??? The separate tote bags in this are wonderful to have and organize my stuff especially for traveling. This navy blue is just beautiful in person, I would normally go for the black version, but decided on doing (carrying) something different for a change. I think I made a GREAT choice! Thank-you MZ Wallace....You Rock! PS. Packaging was well done and shipped to Hawaii Super Fast!
