My tote just arrived and I was actually so excited I had to write a review right away (something I've never felt the need to do before)! It's really beautiful, my mat is easy to get in and out of it (really important to me) and I'll be able to fit my towel & yoga clothes in as well with room to spare. The bag is also very comfortable to carry, and if you don't want to have it horizontal while carrying it, it's still easy to carry and stays on your shoulder if you tip it vertically (I commute in rush hour on the subway, so a long horizontal bag is just asking for unpleasantness). Hopefully the tote will stay clean since it's a light color: it says it's machine-washable so fingers crossed. All in all, the tote was so nice that opening it up managed to put a smile on my face after one of the worst days I've ever had.
