Battenkill Tote

Utilizing the same rugged canvas-and-full-grain-American-leather construction of our legendary Battenkill luggage, we created this handsome tote bag, designed for those everyday items that require quick access. Trimmed with perfectly proportioned leather handles, it features a zipped pocket on one side, a slash pocket on the other, and thick leather feet, secured with solid brass rivets underneath, for protection from rough surfaces. The bottom quarter of the tote bag is reinforced with an additional layer of tough canvas. In green/brown. 14½"H x 16½"W x 7½"D; 1,750 cu. in. Spot clean. Imported.

"Leather was nice and bag made a good appearance. Canvas was too thin. Bag will not stand up by itself.
If a tote won't stand up what's the point.

"I've had one of these totes for almost 8 years. In summer it holds my wading shoes, waders, wading staff and extra socks and clothes. In the fall, just substitute hunting gear. Even after all the rough treatment it still looks good and shows little wear - no worn spots, loose threads or tears. Easy to clean. It still has years of use to go."

Very good purchases,

"The features that I like about the tote bag:
Leather trimming in key places.
The canvas seems to be the right weight, not too stiff or too light.
The size is right for my purposes accommodating all I need to carry.
My opinion with the top access. This will make a nice carry on bag for airline travel. There is room for iPad, laptop, books and lunch.
My downside, I would like to see an option with leather completely on the bottom. I believe this make it sturdier when placing it on the ground.

Good but could be better,

"I found the tote to be well made and very durable. There are a few improvements that would make it more useful. Outside pockets on the front and back would provide easier access. Also a zipper for the main compartment to avoid spills."

Great Tote,

"I bought several of these totes ten+ years ago and use one now, the others went as gifts. Like all Battenkill items, these really last. Great for shopping and traveling on planes as they are open for inspection. I think this is the smaller of two sizes then available and both sizes had a leather bottom, not a canvas bottom. The leather made it waterproof. If Orvis bring back the leather bottom I think it would be more appealing. There was one with a zipper top closer which was better for keeping out rain. All in all, Orvis might consider bringing back the larger size and leather bottom, and adding a zipper closing top ."
