To be truly commute-worthy, a work bag should be an all-rounder: roomy, sturdy, secure, and effortlessly stylish. The Madewell transport tote, which sits atop our list of the very best work bags for women — is just that. We’ve been recommending the transport tote for six years now, since Smitten Kitchen’s Deb Perelman told us it can fit “a laptop, water bottle, and all the toys my kids swear they want to play with that I get stuck carrying home.” And while we’re true Transport Tote devotees, we especially love it on days like today, when it’s on sale. Right now, you can get your own bag for 30 percent off with the code BUILDAFIT — saving you a respectable 40 dollars.
