16 stylish carryalls to get your stuff from here to there

Summer is always a laidback time of year, but it’s also a time that requires us to lug around a lot gear. 2020 is no ordinary summer either. In addition to the requisite sunglasses and sunscreen, we've got pandemic essentials that have become everyday carry items. That means you need a bag—something simple and sturdy. A tote that can get you through a season's worth of impromptu picnics, weekend road trips and everyday errands.

The best totes are like a vintage Land Cruiser: utilitarian yet good looking with plenty of storage space. It's something you can rely on, which is a comforting thought in complicated times. And while you no doubt have a few freebie totes laying around the house, the ones here are built for the long haul. They'll hold everything you've got, no matter where you're headed over the next few months.
