It’s no secret that we’re tote-bag fans. We’ve asked cool people for their favorites and rounded up the most status-y; the L.L.Bean Boat and Tote is practically the unofficial Strategist staff bag (some of us own it in multiple colors). All of that to say we know a good tote when we see one, and this one from Lululemon fits the bill. For starters, this punchy lime shade will stand out amongst a sea of natural-colored canvas bags, and it’s big enough to fit an afternoon’s worth of stuff. Made from water-repellent, wipeable nylon, we think it will serve you all summer long, and it can transition easily from the museum to the beach to the park. It also has a nifty drawstring, which feels a bit more secure than your standard open-top tote. It’s currently on sale for $39 at Lululemon, down from its usual price of $58. And if the lime green is too bright, the grayish-green version is tamer and just as much on sale.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
