This is my new favorite bag! It's so lightweight and finally I have found a tote like style with long straps. I'm not sure about the other review, but it's very easy to carry over your shoulder and I'm 5'6. I also love how wide it opens so you can see everything in the bag easily. It even fits my laptop! I have always loved Fossil, but this is a new best for them!

Warning: The multi-brown is not leather as the descriptions says. It's 100% PVC. That's plastic. Same price as leather? Not for me. It will not last and wear as would leather. I would maybe pay $75 for it. Sadly, I ordered it before I went to the Fossil site and saw the accurate description. PVC doesn't break down in landfills. It has chlorine and mercury in it. If you don't buy leather for compassion reasons, at least don't buy PVC either - try hemp maybe. That said, I love the shape and size of the bag and like the strap length. I will return and exchange for one of the leather ones. At least leather is a natural substance, and natural always trump artificial.

Just got this awesome tote today! I have been searching frantically for the perfect travel tote and this is definitely it! I am 5'1" and needed one that will hold all my stuff, plus my iPad, and noise canceling headphones, yet not overwhelm me. This size is just perfect. I like it so much I found the matching cell phone zip wallet and just purchased it! You can not beat this wonderful sale price for such a nice quality item. In short, it not only is the perfect size with compartments for all my travel items, it looks fantastic!

I love Fossil handbags and sunglasses and this one is my favorite. It's practical, my iPad or book fits and most importantly, it's not too heavy like the fossil crossbody tote I own. I especially like the built in slots for credit cards and I'd cards.

I just got mine today and was worried about it being too big, but it's just perfect for someone who likes to carry essentials and leave room for those extra items you can sometimes stumble upon. I love the leather and design and can't wait for it to wear in a little bit so the leather gets extra soft. Zippers are smooth and there's perfect amount of pockets and key ring to keep you organized. I also like the fact there's a little outside pocket that fits your phone perfectly so you never have to rummage through your bag for it. Perfect. :)

This is a classic bag that will remain in your wardrobe for years. The bag's quality is above my expectations for the cost. I was searching for a classic neutral tote that wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg. This is perfect.

Great tote bag...needed longer straps. Perfect if you don't want to carry it on your shoulder. It was a nice lightweight leather.

This is a beautiful bag. I have several other Fossil bags and I keep buying them because they can take a beating and still look great. I needed something to carry my laptop (old, thick 15" Macbook Pro circa 2011). It holds that and my wallet, lunch, keys, sunglasses, etc. It's not incredibly roomy with all of that stuff, but it definitely fits. The bag is really soft and supple. The straps are comfortable, but they can start to dig in after 35 minutes of a public transit commute. To me, that's normal so I don't mind it. One thing I do want to add is that you can see from the pictures that the strap details are different, depending which color you choose. I got the one that sort of "doubles up" on the strap where it hits the bag. I liked that it was a little more casual but still looked professional and durable. It looks great. I would buy this bag again. And I might just do that...in another color.

When I first got this tote, I thought it was too small and planned to send it back. I even went to the local Fossil store to look at replacements first hand. I travel frequently, and use my totes to carry an iPad, sometimes a laptop too, chargers, a book, water, and I even throw my handbag on top to adhere to the 2-bag carryon rule if I also have a suitcase. No way does this bag look big enough to accommodate all that. Before I boxed it back up I decided to just try packing it. I was shocked to see that with a little careful placement and organization, everything fit! In order to tuck my clutch purse into it I had to leave it unzipped, but once that was back out it was easily zipped back up. The leather is nice; not buttery soft but still nice and I think it will hold up well. The zipper and all the stitching looks sturdy. I got the Camel 2 color, and really like it. It's like a dark caramel. Inside there are several pockets, including spots for credit cards so you could use this as your purse and forego a wallet if you wanted to.

I'm totally in love with this bag. I spent a little extra for the 'Brown 1' option - the camel brown with the contrast stitching on the bag body - and the color is great. The contrast stitching gives it a bit more casual feel. The best part about this bag is in the inside pockets. In the main compartment, there are two small pockets on one side, and one medium interior zip pocket with two small pockets on the opposite side. This is the best organization of any purse that I've ever had. The pockets are just the right size for a wallet, a phone, hand sanitizer/lotion, etc. Then on the exterior, there is another great pocket for easy access to phone, etc. Truly an unregrettable purchase - I'm even considering picking up another color!

Love this bag! It's the perfect size - not huge but plenty of room inside. Nifty interior pockets of various shapes/sizes for credit cards and things. Wide flat bottom means it doesn't collapse when you open it up. Zipper opens and closes easily. Perfect neutral color goes with almost anything. Very well constructed/sturdy. Love it!

I needed a new work tote and this bag is perfect. I previously had a Hobo brand tote bag that I had finally worn out over the years. This bag is an excellent replacement. It is roomy enough to carry my purse essentials plus work essentials. The leather is soft and beautiful and the bag has four "feet" on the bottom so it is perfect for setting on the floor at meetings, etc. I highly recommend this bag for any working women professional.

Brands I'd also recommend: Ugg

I am obsessed with this bag. I use it for work every single day, and it is so versatile. It is super stylish, but is also durable enough to endure a daily commute and frequent airplane travel. This bag comfortably fits my work laptop, along with other notebooks/padfolios, but does not look or feel like an ugly/bulky work bag. I love that it does not have a middle zip pocket/divider so I can have everything in one compartment. The small pouches/key holders on the side make it extra convenient. Plus, it has top zip closure, not just a magnetic button which makes it easy when taking it on a plane/putting it on the TSA security conveyor belt - since nothing falls out! I may buy another one!

I am super pleased with this bag. The size is big enough to used as a traveling/adventure bag, but not too big to be a purse. The quality is very good and price is excellent. I have the black one with the gold hardware and it's very classy and well made.

Love love love this bag I use it as my 'diaper' bag most days. Nowthat she's a little older I don't need as much stuff, and I can still be stylish!! The camel color is beautiful and it's the perfect travel bag! I got so many compliments! I like this much better than a lot of the fancier bags I've purchased in the past!

I love this bag! The leather is so soft and the shape is perfect in its simplicity. I got the bag in Raisin and it's a really nice mahogany color. Plenty of room for everything I can imagine to carry - with inside slip pockets to keep things organized. I wasn't a fan of Fossil in the past, but I really like their new designs. Highly recommend this bag!

Love this for my everyday work bag. It zips all the way closed - a must for me. It has many more interior organizational pockets than most tote bags- fewer than my big messenger bag, but still pretty good. The leather is sexy, luxurious, and professional looking. I'm a big fan.

I bought this for a trip (it is a great airport bag) and three weeks later I still have not changed purses. It has got pockets all on the inside, but a big open feel to fit everything. I am not usually a big purse girl, but this one is just the right size for the office and trips. I absolutely love the camel leather, too.

I am in love with this bag! Unlike many other Fossil bags, this one is actually very lightweight. I am petite so a big bag like this can weigh me down, but not so with this one! I can fit everything I need in this bag (wallet, keys, cosmetic bag, umbrella, book, iPad, sweater, you name it) and there's still room left over and it's only as heavy as what you put in. I can fit my iPhone, subway card, and a lip gloss in the outside pocket, and the inside pockets (especially the zippered one) are perfect and can hold so much. The leather and hardware are high quality, and the cobalt blue is an amazing color that's great year round. Thank you Zappos!

Just got one with cream background and pink/purple flower pattern. Love it! Perfect for the summer. It's gorgeous, classy yet stylish. I got this from a store and there were so many brands to pick from and many are more expensive. But it's amazing that hardly any had the design right (for me), too big, too narrow, colors clash,straps too thin, etc etc. I own several Fossil pieces and had always admire their class and workmanship. This new stylish tote has made me a loyal customer!

Perfect for my life -- full time job, 2 small children. It is big enough for a tablet and some work to bring home during the week, and big enough to throw some diapers and toys in on the weekend. The leather is fairly soft, not at all rigid. It isn't very heavy and is much lighter than the smaller purse I was carrying. And the color (light blue) is gorgeous. it goes with everything, never clashes. I like it more than many other more expensive bags. And it was at my door one day after I ordered it.
