Good carry-on bags are hard to find, they are either cheesy and not stylish or not big enough and have weak handles… the list could go on. I’ve had my eye on Barrington Gifts St. Anne Tote for a while now. Barrington Gifts is a Dallas based company, which makes gorgeous customizable handbags and accessories.
I have 4 different St. Anne totes both the zippered and non-zippered version. I love all 4 of them and use them for work, travel and everyday life. They hold up so nicely over time and are definitely worth the higher price point. I always get so many compliments on them because of the personalization. There’s nothing like it on the market.
Top 4 favorite things about the Barrington Gifts St. Anne Tote:
- The Straps – The straps on this bag are very durable and will be able to hold up. While traveling, I always have two notebooks, my laptop, my crossbody bag, a camera and more in the tote and the straps don’t show a struggle in the slightest.
- The Pockets – I absolutely LOVE the interior pockets. There is a large zippered pocket on one side that is perfect for travel documents, notebooks, etc. On the other side, there are 3 open pockets perfect your phone, pens, protein bars, lipstick, etc.
- The Material – The exterior of the St. Anne Tote is made of durable, water-resistant Ballistic Nylon, accented with premium Florentine leather details, and the interior is lined with natural cotton canvas.
- The Design – Lastly, and probably my favorite part is the design. I could spend hours on their website customizing my perfect bag. It reminds of games I used to play as a child designing. Because it is completely personalized, there is no mistaking it is your bag when going through airport security.
The St. Anne tote is an investment at $145, but I think it is well worth it. The bag will stand the test of time and be able to used for so many occasions like travel, work, class, the gym, the possibilities are truly endless. This bag would also make an amazing birthday, Christmas or anniversary gift!
