Get Carried Away Tote
I love this bag!
This bag is a lifesaver for me. I work in an elementary school library, and I have arthritis and must use a cane. This bag saves me steps. When I close the library at the end of the day I often have things I have to take to the office and then to my car--books, walkie talkies, coffee cup, thermos, etc., plus the things I would ordinarily carry in a separate purse. I can put all this stuff in the bag, sling it over my shoulder so that it rests on my back, and have my right hand free to carry my cane. I hardly feel the bag when I carry it, because much of the weight of the bag has been shifted to my back. One suggestion I have is to remove the cardboard base. This will make the bag ride closer to your body so it won't feel as cumbersome, and you won't bump into things (and people!) as easily.

This bag is my life!
I LOVE this bag! I am a dance teacher who spends long hours at the studio- every bag I bought for work I kept out growing and I was turning into a bag lady! I received the "Get carried away tote" in Symphony in Hue as a Christmas gift from my husband and it has solved all of my troubles! I can fit multiple pairs of dance shoes (ballet, jazz, tap), extra layers for the chilly months, my music, cosmetic cases, snacks, my lunch tote, my lesson plan books, and so much more! The outside pockets are great- my water bottles slide right in! I love the inside pockets where I can easily store pens, lotion, my keys, my thera bands, extra CDs, socks, and lots of other things. Everything is easily accessible- plus it can zipper close! It fits my life and I know I will never out grow this bag, thank you VB!!!!!!!!

Complete Perfection! Must have for work commuter
I don't often write product reviews. 1 - My spelling errors are terrible and 2 - I don't have time! :) But all the reviews helped me with this purchase so I wanted to return the favor. I am a daily commuter. My work schedule varies, many days I take the train to work, sometime I am driving to a different office, and other days working from home. This all equals lots of lugging of items, files, laptop. etc. etc. In addition to walking shoes, workout clothes and my boxing gloves, make up bag, blah blah blah. For two years I've carried as many as 3 bags at a time and on the train it is a pain. I needed something to hold it all but keep it organized. This bag was it! The price caused me room for pause but so glad I did it. I took it to work today for the first time and I'm already over the moon happy with it. The functionality of the pockets and the lightweight material make this a winner. Already looking to see who on my Christmas list is "worthy" of this a gift!
