Yes, I’m going to do it. I’m going to talk about Herschel Supply Co. again. After using my “Market” tote at the beach and over the past week to keep my entire life in one bag and (slightly) organized, I wanted to share what makes this tote my new favorite.
This post is going to be over loaded with pictures, because I think they prove the multitude of function that this bag has more than I could accurately describe. The outer canvas is water resistant and coffee resistant (that was a home test). The lining is red and white stripes. There are two mesh pockets about the size of an iPhone and one long pocket on the other side made out of the same lining. Every single edge is banded, so it won’t shred all over the place with use. The pull tab on the outer pocket zipper is leather. The strap closure on the top is adjustable so you can stuff the tote as full as you want and the magnetic snap will still reach.
I think the first picture on the second row shows just how sturdy this bag is. There is a form in the bottom that makes it stand up on it’s own when it’s empty, but not so much that you can’t fold the tote down for storage. So much function! Here are the contents of my Market tote this week:
I don’t always carry around a paper cutter and a three hole punch. Those just happened to be the random items of the week since I was working on putting together a blog planner for myself. I do always carry around about 20 pens though. You never know when you’ll need a certain color. And yes, that is a bag inside of a bigger bag. Shows how much room this tote has! It’s a Vera Bradley hipster (Disney Vera), so it’s not a small purse either. A hole punch doesn’t help me in the grocery store, so it worked well that I can pull out my necessities in a separate bag for a quick run. The accessories in the picture on the right were in the small front zip pocket. The pocket is deeper than you think, but it can be a little tedious to get things in and out. That’s my only dislike about this tote, and it’s definitely no deal breaker.
The details on these bags are adorable and add more character to a tote loaded with multiple uses. Should you need something bigger, they make a “Market XL” tote, though I can’t imagine what else you might need to carry? Maybe a blender? Five pairs of shoes? Who knows. What I do know is that I can’t wait to try out their other products! Do you own any Herschel goods?
