Totes might be the most underestimate travel essentials in your travel gear collections. After all, packing is already hard enough, and there are lots of supplies to stash in your bag. But carry-all tote bags allow you to throw everything you need in one spacious compartment, including an iPad loaded up with your favorite Netflix TV series, tons of snacks that can keep you satisfied, or even a travel pillow to help you catch some sleep during the trip. Plus, although tote bags are endlessly versatile, they are stylish without compromising utility, durability, or comfort.
In other words, tote bags are the most worthwhile investment you can own for your next adventure. But finding the right one is not as easy as it sounds. So, to help you save an excruciating amount of time, we’ve pulled together five of the most thoughtfully designed, stylish, and functional women’s travel tote bags, and we are sure you will find something you like.
