I really wanted to love this tote. I read the dimensions but, upon receiving it, I feel the bottom is just too narrow. This is because, while the tote has height, the skinny depth limits how much it can carry. You can certainly carry a stack of magazines standing up inside, but good luck getting anything in it that isn't flat. On the plus side, the colored piping is beautiful and I really like the coated canvas. But (here's the other but) the straps/handles are a huge miss. They feel cheap, thin and rough. For the price of this bag, I feel the handles should be of higher quality. Overall, it's well made in most ways, but a slightly wider bottom and better straps would have been a home run. I'm going to keep mine, but, without a few improvements by the manufacturer, I would not buy another.
