    This review is from: Coach Metal Pebble Lthr Turnlock Tote-Lt Gold/Gold (Accessory)
    This tote bag features a single main compartment that zips closed. The interior fabric lining is black, and contains one wide zip pocket in the back as well as two slip pockets in the front. The outside front pocket takes up the entire front of the bag and is secured with a turnlock closure. The handle drop is adjustable from 9 to 10 inches. It took me a long time to find this tote bag that is large and flexible enough to hold my notebook and lunch, has a decent-sized external pocket for frequently-used items, and is suitable for a formal workplace without being the usual boring black. This bag certainly meets those needs.

    I love the simple, sleek look and feel of the leather, which is light, yet just stiff enough to maintain the beautiful structure of the bag and keep it upright regardless of how many or few items are in it. I would not call it “light gold” by any means. It is rather a somber gold as depicted in the picture and comes off as understated elegance rather than bright. The color goes well with any color one wears (except for gray and purple) and is suitable for professional settings while still being special.

    The turnlock does a good job of keeping items from sliding out of the external pocket if the bag is laid on its side. The external pocket is so deep that it is hard to locate small items in it, but I solved that problem by pinning a soft cosmetic bag to the top of the pocket’s inside to hold small items. A small laptop does fit in the main compartment, though the straps are thin so may be too uncomfortable on the shoulders to wear for long that way.

    I do wish that the lining weren’t all black to make it easier to see inside, and that there were feet on the bottom of the bag to keep it off the floor and clean. In addition, the narrowness of the two slip pockets on the inside of the bag make them hard to use for anything other than pens, cards, or small phones. I love this bag and highly recommend it otherwise.
