I bought this BAGSMART tote bag for $25 to use as my carry-on for plane travel. I put it through its paces and it passed with flying colours. It’s very lightweight, roomy, robust, tear-resistant, made of weatherproof fabric, and folds into a square. The zippers glide and the straps lie quite comfortably on your shoulder. It has outside compartments, a secret top compartment, and one small pocket on the inside. Watch the video to see the compartments and the size of the tote.

I bought the beige, which is the first cream tote in the collection. It got a little dirty after many flights and train trips so I popped it in the washing machine. It launders well on the delicates cycle. Quick to dry and does not crease. It can work well as a work, school, or gym bag, or whenever you need a robust tote with a zipper closure. Makes a nice gift too.
