This Madewell tote boasts over 1,000 reviews and average 5 stars—and it’s not hard to see why. It has a super roomy main compartment that holds a bunch, as well as a massive exterior pocket for easy access to your belongings, and it comes with a detachable shoulder strap should you prefer carrying it as a crossbody bag. But the pièce de résistance? It’s under $200, making it a budget-friendly option that’s 100% worth every penny.
One reviewer raves: “I have never made a better purchase than this bag. I’ve carried it every single day since I bought it almost two years ago – no exaggeration – and it has stood up to everything I can think of. No signs of wear on the straps or stitching despite carrying laptops, books, flowers, water bottles, lunch, etc., and even being subjected to plane travel and rainy bike rides. So versatile and stylish that strangers ask where its from.”
