I LOVE THIS BAG! I'm a teacher who has to carry a ton and this bag is perfect. If it's raining or snowing and I come to work in boots, I store my work shoes on the bottom! The straps are the perfect length for me to comfortably fit my arms if I'm wearing a big coat or layers! I love storing my lunch on the bottom away from my work stuff. The side pockets are perfect for my water bottle and umbrella. The architecture of this bag is fantastic. Quality materials. Well worth the money. Oh another thing I love is that I can let down the top and usulize the full tote if I don't need the bottom compartment for anything. That makes the bag even more multifunctional.
I love my carly tote and backpack!!!! Thank you minkeeblue!!!!
