The "big tote" bag is a must for extended vacations/trips especially those that involve long airline flights. The bag pictured in this post is made of lightweight parachute material. It has many side pockets inside and out as well as handles and a shoulder strap. The brand is "Apana." I chose this peticular bag for it's shape, size and style. In Burberry's autumn/winter collection a large tote named the "Bloomsbury Bag" is the key new piece to their collection. My much less expensive Apana tote has a similar look. On the flight it will be packed with magazines, a mini IPad, my cross body purse, meds, and a wrapped gift. While touring I will use it to carry my Nikon camera, my tech gear and any souvineers purchased. If you are looking for "modern big bag" consider this model from Apana. I bought mine at TJ Maxx.
