I have the Michael Kors Signature Tote in leather but after I put everything in it that I need, including I Pad, I find it much too heavy to carry comfortably. I am much happier with the Kempton Large Tote.

While the comfort and style were exactly what I was looking for, the quality is poor. After 3 months of owning this bag the straps are already fraying and look really worn. Would not recommend for long term use..

Agree that it's a good size, but I'm on my second one in a few months and the handles don't last. Ready to try another brand.

I wanted a nice looking travel tote. The straps/bottom were described as "leather." This is not true...high price for nylon and faux leather. Not what I expected...returning.

I have had this bag since January. I love the style of it and it's great for an everyday work bag. However, the bag is not sturdy enough to handle everyday wear. The straps have frayed and now it takes away from my polished look. I initially purchase this bag over the Longchamp bag because it was more sturdy... I now regret that decision!

I love this bag! It's big enough to fit everything I need but doesn't feel heavy. Not sure if it's the material or what but the bag doesn't feel as heavy as other bags with the same about of stuff in it. I haven't had any problems with the handles yet so I can't speak to that. I think I've had it about a month now still looks new!

I bought this bag for a travel purse and it worked perfectly. It has lots of room, the interior is a light color so you can see things, and there are 5 interior pockets, along with an outside zip one. It holds my iPad, books, glasses (my husband's included), and tons of other items. My only complaint would be that it needs a longer strap as well for carrying cross body as it gets heavy when putting in all those items. The material is super strong and the bottom is vinyl to keep stains away. I love this bag and will continue to use it for travel in the US.

I really like this tote. I have it in navy. I was looking for a work tote with a zipper closure (for my commute) that looks good with business attire or business casual attire. This tote fits the bill! The material is sturdy and looks and feels like it is of good quality. I find that it helps me stay more organized over other totes I have had. It has plenty of compartments without having too many (I just forget where I have put something when there are too many compartments. I especially like the outside pocket, which allows for easy access to keys,metro card, pens etc. I would love it even more if the tote was a bit larger overall, if the straps were a bit thicker, and if the outside zipper ran smoother.

It is a great bag. I strongly recommend this bag to women who carry several things in the bags. It can even fit an 11 inch laptop.

This Michael Kors tote is spectacular! What I particularly like is that it's very deep and has a zippered closure to keep your things safe. It also has pockets near the top of the bag, allowing easy access to often-used items, like keys, tissues, phone. There's also a deep zippered pocket on the outside of the bag. It was raining hard the other day, but since the tote is nylon, it easily wipes dry or dries by itself with no staining.

This is a beautiful, classic and sophisticated tote bag. I love that it is nylon, so much easier to keep clean than leather. I got the navy blue; it is a dark, rich color, slight sheen on the fabric. I debated about this purchase for a long time based on price but I would order it again in a second. I bought a similar MK bag for my sister as well.

I'm very happy with this bag! I needed something light weight to carry all my baby and kid stuff (which adds considerable weight), plus lots of pockets. I ordered it and after a month or so the leather trim on the handles started to fray. Zappos agreed to switch it out for me. Hopefully it was a lemon and does not happen again.

I love this bag! I bought it to use in addition to my carry on for work trips. It fits everything I need including my laptop. Plus, I love the convenient front zip pocket for boarding pass, ID and cell phone. Really easy to clean, and comfortable fits on the shoulder. Would definitely recommend!

This tote is fantastic. It is spacious, easy to wear, and has a full-zip for security. I used it as my go-to-bag for a weekend trip to Disneyland (took it on water rides and roller coasters), and it looked pristine and just like new after the trip. I like the longer drop length of the straps. Wonderful bag!

Pockets offer great organization and I use the large inside space for kids diapers, wipes, toys, and my cosmetic bag. There is still plenty of room for a shawl or a purchase and my shoulder is not sore from carrying a large leather dead weight around!

Nice tote with a lot of useful pockets and enough room to fit work files and anything I need to carry during the day. Love that it has a full zip top for travel. Leather trim isn't as nice as it could be for the price, but it seems well constructed overall. Classic styling makes it worth the investment if you're looking for a simple, lightweight, tote.

I purchased this bag last week to use as a travel/work bag. I fell in love with it when I saw it and knew I just had to have it! It's very roomy, lightweight, and the material felt thicker than a Longchamp (which I originally had planned on purchasing). I haven't had a chance to use my bag yet, but after reading all of the reviews about the cracking handles (and seeing used ones on eBay), I will be returning it. It breaks my heart because this really is an awesome bag, but I need something that's going to last me longer than a couple of months.

The bag is beautiful very spacious the only problem is that the straps hurt your shoulder if you hold it too long even when it's not too full. I've had the bag less than a month and the bag is already coming out of the seams. I like the bag but I don't think it's worth the money.

Super pretty bag with a lot of useful compartments inside. Returning because the straps felt cheap and weak. Feels like they may snap with a couple of times with the iPad in the purse. Sturdier straps and I would have kept it. Loved the color combo and lack of branding.

Do not buy this bag. I loved everything about this bag - it's lightweight, has ample room inside and plenty of pockets, and it looks great. However, after about a month, the handles started to fray. I've now had it for about 4 months, and the handles are not only frayed, but cracking. It looks awful! I know it wasn't that expensive, but I certainly expected to get more than a couple months use out of it.
