16 Best Tote Bags for Plane Trips, Souvenir Shopping, and Beach Days

·9 min read

Totes are one of the most essential travel items you can own—the best tote bags are endlessly versatile and tend to have room for everything. For some, a sturdy leather tote is a no-brainer personal item for flights: it's bigger than a purse, so you can more easily fit a laptop, a water bottle, and more inside. For others, an easy-to-fold cotton option might be the item you break out mid-trip for the beach or market.

Whatever your style, a tote bag you love is a must-have, but the right one can be notoriously hard to find. Below, we've pulled together the best tote bags to travel with—from the value buys to the investment bags you'll get compliments on for years to come.
