The Terrific Travel Tote is the perfect carry-on, sized to fit in the overhead compartment! A zip-top panel drops down inside when you just need an open-top tote for errands or shopping. Straps that wrap all the way around and under the bottom panel make it a strong bag that can carry a lot and, on both sides of the tote, the strap positioning creates three pocket compartments.

The center division on one or both sides can be zipped for added security for your valuables and there is a small zipped pocket inside the tote that is safe and easily accessible place for small items such as cell phone, change, meds, keys, and cosmetics.
