With this tote, you no longer need to worry when it’s raining. Made of high-grade leather and nylon, it is waterproof—keeping your laptop and other stuff dry. It’s anti-wrinkle, too! It also comes with a USB cable for super-easy access to your phone when charging.

What women are saying: “This tote bag far exceeds my expectations, it looks like it should cost a lot more and it holds so much, it’s not heavy, and at first glance one would think the trimmings are leather. I commute and this bag holds all of my items easily with room to spare. It’s roomy enough to be a overnight if your destination is a bed and breakfast. I’m very satisfied with my purchase.”

2. Tory Burch Perry Embossed Triple-Compartment Tote Bag

If you like to keep things organized, you will love this three-compartment tote! Perfect for multi-tasking, this crocodile-embossed bag can carry your 13-inch laptop—and a lot more.

Made from fine Italian leather, it’s an everlasting bag. In fact, it ages gracefully like all genuine Italian leather products. The dark color goes with office wear, formal wear, or casual wear. It comes with a detachable tag and the Tory Burch gold logo.

What’s lovely about this extra-large tote bag for work (besides the high quality) is the very tiny and subtle brand name in front. Gorgeous, sophisticated, and a totally practical tote for the modern-day girl boss!

What women are saying: “I love the Perry, and own it in other colors, but this is the first one that I have that has the triple compartment. It is made of the same gorgeous, easy to keep clean, pebbled leather, but it seems stiffer and I am curious to see if is more apt to keep its shape because of the center pocket. My other Perry bags are soft and slouchy, but still look great. I can fit my lap top, a small flat cross-body bag, sunglasses, and my Minnie ballet flats inside easily. When I don’t have my laptop, the center zipped pocket is roomy enough to hold many things. The handles are the perfect length to wear over my shoulder, and the relative softness of the bag means it is not cumbersome. I have really loaded my older Perry bags with heavy things, and the straps have held up well, so I believe these will too.”

3. S-Zone Vintage Genuine Leather Tote

If you’re on the lookout for a big tote that can carry your heavy baggage, S-Zone’s genuine leather tote can hold a maximum of 11 pounds of your office stuff!

Besides its storage capabilities, it boasts of high-quality metal hardware and genuine cow leather. With adjustable handles, you can control the height of the straps. You can sling it on your shoulder, or use it as a handbag. And here’s more: it has multiple pockets inside to thrill the organizer in you!

What women are saying: “I purchased this bag and have to say that I love it! It has lots of room, an added zipped pocket in the middle and a pocket on the outside that I use for my phone. I really like the color and the long straps. It’s great! I will purchase another one.”

4. CHICECO Extra Large Tote Bag for Work

It can fit a large 17-inch laptop! The CHICECO zippered tote bag is made of waterproof and scratch-free oxford nylon, with microfiber leather straps. With tons space, you can practically throw anything in here. Designed for the busy woman, this extra-large tote bag has a convenient interior zip pocket with a keychain, plus two slip pockets for your mobile phone and wallet.

The design and colors are subtle, but which helps this tote match any outfit. It comes in black, navy blue, and deep purple, with contrasting color straps. Very professional-looking bag!

What women are saying: “I really like this bag. I looked for a couple of months for just the right thing. I regularly carry a lunchbox and a handbag, and recently started to carry a laptop as well. I didn’t want to continue to carry multiple bags, but laptop bags weren’t big enough. I also didn’t want a canvas tote or backpack. I’d rather carry a nicer bag on Friday with my jeans than scramble to find something when I dress up. This is just the thing. It’s made of a heavier nylon, and the straps are reinforced. It’s big but not joke huge and looks polished. It’s not terribly floppy. For me it holds a medium sized bento, 14′ laptop in a sleeve, large wallet, makeup bag, sunglasses and planner. It’s also big enough for a manilla file or a slim profolio. If you pack it too full it won’t zip of course, but that’s psychics fault, not the bag.”
