Who doesn't love a good tote? Especially if you have kids. I would much rather carry a classic tote than a diaper bag any day. And totes are versatile. From farmer's market shopping bag to soccer practice ball-bag to day-at-the-beach bag, totes do it all. And a good heavy-duty, well-made one like those from Artifact Bag Co. in Omaha, NE. They are made "using a combination of hand tools and vintage industrial equipment [and] the finest American sourced waxed canvas and leather." All that and a lifetime guarantee. You really can't go wrong.
