Rated 5 out of 5 by jazmine Custom Large Tote
I ordered as a gift for my son. The bag was much more durable than I expected. Wonderful craftsmanship. The personlization looked great and he will enjoy it for boating and RVing with the family. Large enough to pack the whole days necessary items. Fantastic gift item for the upcoming holidays.

I ordered the small zip top tote on a Thursday evening and it arrived monday complete with monogram! The bag is the perfect size to use as a casual handbag or to tote smaller items. The monogram looks great, and the shipping was super fast! Plus I love that the bags are handmade right in Maine. I could not be happier with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gma2Mia love these bags
I have been in love with these bags since I was a kid. My aunts each had one, I think they only came in red and navy back then as that was the only colors all 5 of them had. When my granddaughter was born in 2011 I got her a large pink monogramed bag, and later a medium light green, possibly sage, monogramed bag. I now want to purchase one for her to keep her toys at my house contained and other use in the future. I would like advise from others who have purchased the xl, as I remember the large was quite large but I do not have it available for comparison. Also I'm thinking about purchasing 2 for myself for varied uses, travel, groceries, everyday use, possibly a large bag. Thank you.

As a charter boat skipper I have used my boat and tote for ten years without complaint, disappointment, or any form of negative thought. Endlessly useful for all those small and medium objects necessary to travel to boat and to home, I use them every day and bless my friends who first gave them to me.

This tote stands the test of time. Sturdy, washes well & I always get compliments on my totes. These make a great gift ... as well as a wonderful gift bag for presents. Red or dark green for the holidays....bridal shower color/monogram last name/names with items from registry ..... etc.
It's a given that I purchase the x-l long handled tote for a baby showers ... will do some shade of blue or green handles for a boy ... pink or purple for a girl. Makes a great big bag for toting things to nana or papa's house ... etc ... when more room is needed than just the diaper bag.
Love this product. Stock up on a few when they go on sale...

I purchased my first boat and tote (large with long handles) to accommodate school supplies. It held my nursing school books and binders easily as well as a lunch and a light jacket. I use this large one for weekend trips and camping. SUPER sturdy! Received my second boat and tote today (small zipper with regular handles)!!! I've been so happy with my first tote I had to have another! I will be using the small one as a purse! Can't wait to start using it and I'm looking forward to enjoying it for years to come! I'm already thinking of the next tote to add to my collection. Thank you for making such a high quality and practical product!!!

I still have a boat and tote bag a friend gave me back in the 1980s and although a little worn it still has lots of life in it. I have many sizes and colors of these bags and yet I just purchased another because I'm starting a new job after 20+ years. I use the bags for everything from carrying groceries, lugging stuff up and down stairs, taking things to hobby shows. Some of my bags have the shorter handles, some longer, depending on what I'm carrying. These will definitely outlive me and I will have to provide for them in my will!

I have 2 of these bags - L and XL - and use them more than I ever thought I would when I purchased them. I have given so many as gifts as well and they are always well received.
I'm trying to come up with an excuse to buy another...
