I chose this bag based on the recommendation of several flight attendant friends. It’s perfect for travel and gives me easy access in flight. Sleek and professional.
I hate to leave a negative review on a small business page, but I hope the constructive criticism will help them! As others have mentioned the top part of the bag is way too small. There’s nowhere to actually put anything (keys, wallet, umbrella, etc). They just awkwardly lay on top of the closed lunch/shoe compartment. There is not a lot of interior storage either as the three pockets are all very shallow/narrow and can’t fit very much. Two of the three pockets don’t have zippers and are so shallow that chap stick or whatever else you might put in there falls out pretty easily. Finally, my bag has completely lost its structure so the bottom half of it is slouched and when sat on the ground it doesn’t stand up as straight as it did when I first bought it. It has also caused the lunch compartment zipper to be creased which makes it harder to zip/unzip. LOVE the concept of this because I hate carrying multiple bags but unfortunately this bag has been a let down for me, especially with such a high price point. Oh, it’s also very heavy on my shoulder when I have my laptop and lunch in there, but that’s less of an issue for me.
Little room on top, but a lot at the bottom.
The item was great. Unfortunately my daughter wanted something with color and designs and so will buy via Etsy.
I love the Ella Tote 2.0. Almost perfect, functional, keeps me organized.
The upper compartment is too small. Offering a purse organizer may help or consider making the lower compartment narrower/smaller.
Please make a tote large enough to hold a 16" laptop.
