I was excited to see recently that Nordstrom now carries Dagne Dover, which has been a reader favorite for years for their sturdy, coated canvas totes. They have several fun, saturated colors like this “Palm green” or their classic cobalt “Dagne blue,” but they also have neutrals. By way of a mini Dagne Dover tote review: as a sturdy tote, it may also be a slightly heavy tote if you’re used to carrying nylon or other super lightweight options; it may also feel a bit stiff — but all of that may work better for your lifestyle than a lightweight, less durable option. In any event, the Signature Legend tote (pictured here) is $265 and big enough to fit sneakers as well as a laptop; the classic tote is a more slimmed-down version for $245.

(Oooh: the Dagne Dover website now has card cases as well. Nice.)

2018 Update: We’re adding this bag to our Workwear Hall of Fame because readers have loved this bag for years, and if you’re looking for a sturdy, large tote this is a great option. Dagne Dover’s website has the most options, but you can also find the brand at Nordstrom, and occasionally at Revolve.
