    Comments about Companion Tote:

    This could, perhaps be, the perfect bag. Really. And I know bags.. living in Manhattan (the center of the 'you-must-have-a-killer-bag-to-survive' universe) for 30+ years in a very fast paced, ruthlessly high demanding, tons of travel, high visibility profession.

    SO the quest for the perfect bag begins long ago - I need a great, strong, well welll WELL thought out bag. So over the years I've bought and tested HUNDREDS of bags, and the Companion Tote scores high in almost every category... First, I perfer bags that are vertical in orinetation - so backpacks, rutsacks, totes trump messenger bags and briefcases for me. This is my bias going into this review.

    The overall dimensions of this bag make it ideal - not too big, certainly not too small. Tumi quality is top notch, so the bag looks and performs great. Inside is where the magic begins. Pockets...pockets and pockets and pockets. Oddly I'm not a fan of deep vertical pockets and this bag has a few, but its very easy to compartmentalize your stuff in this bag, and that's mandatory for today's travel which sort of sucks at best. Being able to find your stuff quickly and without having to trash everything inside or dump stuff out of your bag is essential with travel these days. This bag is making it easy. There's a place for everything.

    It does get a tad big and cumbersome for the under-the-seat-in-front-of-you travel requirements. You may need to give some thought to whether this is better in the overhead (not my preference) or under the seat. If you pack this baby to the max, it will NOT go under the seat. Here's why... this tote has a zippered expander that makes it grow to be Mary's Poppin's bag indeed. You can stuff this baby to your hearts content. But if you do, it could start to weight a ton.

    And this gets me to the only gripe I have...the handles. The handles can be extended via an ingenious tie down system. But I'm a BIG guy, and if these handles could go just a few inches more it truly would accomodate every size person out there.

    I'm not a big reviewer but when I think very strongly about something, I need to say it. And if it helps you travel better, awesome! And here it is...this may well be - finally - the perfect bag. Thanks Tumi!

      Comments about Companion Tote:

      I have purchased many "totes" which typically are limited on the number of compartments, or may not have a zipper closure. This tote has everything!
      When I travel for business I often check my luggage but want to keep personal items with me on the flight. A duffle bag is often too bulky to carry, especially after picking up the checked luggage. This tote is perfect for that purpose, even if I also have a briefcase with me.
      There are so many pockets and compartments to carry and organize everything needed for travel. Items that need to be secured in a zippered compartment as well as items that need to be grabbed quickly. It's a slim, lightweight form-factor that can expand as needed. It doesn't take up too much space in the rental car with my business colleagues! This bag looks like it would be great to take on a day trip or any recreational adventure.
      Overall this is far beyond just a "tote" it's a very thoughtful design that is excellent for travel and as an all-around carry bag.

        Comments about Companion Tote:

        I bought this trip at ATL airport store a few months ago. This bag turns out to be my go-to bag.

        The bag is equipped with a lot of internal and external pockets for storage. If you are looking for a bag that carries your precious laptop, tablets, documents, etc and do not want to settle with a traditional laptop bag, this bag is probably for you.

        Besides the fact that it is suitable for local commute. I found it hold up pretty well for the hassle of international travels. Passing through the security check points is easy.

        The bag works with males and females. It MIGHT look a bit femanine to some guys. Try it yourself at the store and make your own decision.

        Nearly Perfect Travel Tote

          Comments about Companion Tote:

          This is my favourite carry on bag for air travel. It has a pocket or compartment for everything you want with you when you travel. It also looks smart and has one of those handy flaps on the back that go over the handle of any wheely bag (like the stewardesses have sometimes) which is an extra bonus. The straps are adjustable, but frankly I find that if I leave them on the shorter setting I can carry the bag with the handles in my hand or put it on my shoulder without having to let out the straps.

          The one thing that makes this bag less than perfect is that the two front zip pockets sit on a flap that is flush with the rest of the bag by use of a magnet concealed in the lining. As soon as you put anything in the bag, the magnet does not hold that front bit flat against the body of the bag, so it has a tendency to gape away from the body of the bag, no matter how many times you try to fix the magnet. A simple toggle or a series of magnets would probably fix up this design flaw. I wish Tumi had tested the bag with something in it. The little magnet does not work as intended. Still, I do not find this defect to be a deal breaker because the bag is so good in every other respect.

            Being able to zip it closed to prevent valuable items being stolen when travelling abroad.
            Not too heavy.

            Comments about Companion Tote:

            I was looking for a bag that could fit all my non-clothes travel stuff in an organized way. I LOVE this bag! There are multitudes of pockets, enough for the most compulsive of travelers. The main pocket is big enough for a laptop, and there is a side zippered pocket that is roomy enough for an iPad and lots of other stuff.
            My only concern is whether the bag was too big to fit underneath the seat in an airplane. The bag fits easily (unless it's really stuffed).
            The bag is too big to serve as a purse/tote bag, and it can be heavy if full. But those are small annoyances compared to the ease of organization and capacity of the bag.

              I love this tote! There are tons of pockets—so much so that it will take me some time to figure out what to place where.

              Best features of the bag are the adjustable shoulder straps (you can make them long enough to wear the bag over your shoulder, even with a bulky winter coat on) and the padded compartment for my kindle.

              I plan to use this bag for commuting by train twice a week and for traveling.
