'Closed Top Tote', Dark Brown Waxed Canvas Twill with Veg-Tan Leather Straps.
My bag is pretty good window into the assortment of daily endeavors I find myself wrestling with. Among some of the more recent items: clothes, shoes, work documents, motorcycle parts, iPad and a drill.
"Three aspects that I specifically enjoy. The sturdy 24oz. Wax Cotton Twill: good way to inject some masculinity into a tote bag. The Top flap: love that I can close the top when I need to. Strap length: easily fits onto my shoulder without feeling restrictive."Â J.Towery

I use my bag everyday to carry my laptop that I use religiously for work. I also carry everything I dont want in my pockets.
"I feel like I can put anything and everything in it. I've travelled with it across the country several times and several states and fits all I need for a day around town." C. Cleen

'Closed Top Tote', Tea-Dyed Duck Canvas with Waxed Bottom & Dark Leather Straps.
It serves many purposes. I rely on public transportation to get around the city, so, it carries everything I'll need for the day and then some. You will usually find a moleskin notepad, library books, record store treasure, a pendelton, and a canteen.
"I love the attention to detail put into this bag. The bag is durable without being cumbersome. With the 'snap top' feature, I know that my items are safe and secure. There is a small pouch inside the bag that I affectionately call the 'prohibition' pouch as my flask fits in there perfectly." K. Skelton
