NEWS – If you’re looking for a sophisticated, sleek gear bag, you need look no further than the Allyn Tote. This tote bag from Dagne Dover is a mixture of genuine pebbled leather and zinc-alloy hardware that will carry your gear – from a laptop to a water bottle – in luxury. The interior is lined with a polyester fabric, whose light color makes it easier to find your gear inside.
The interior is outfitted with a water bottle holder, zippered laptop sleeve, and additional slip pocket, all made of neoprene. Two pen loops, a phone pocket, ID pocket, detachable 17″ leather key leash with two interior d-ring attachment points, and an exterior slip pocket keep your gear organized and accessible. The bag measures 14.25” x 13” x 7” and weighs 3.1 pounds. The bag is held closed with a magnetic tab closure, and leather feet protect the bottom of the bag.
The Tote is available in Onyx with matte black hardware, Oxblood with brushed gold hardware, or Bone with rose-gold hardware. The Allyn Tote is $345 at Dagne Dover.

While I’m dreaming… Let’s make it in a nice, lightweight pleather that won’t be ruined when someone at the nearby table Knox vert wine glass over, and make the interior organizer removable so I can switch it to different colored bags to match my outfit or mood that day without having to repack everything…
Hmmm … that would be “knocks their wine glass over” … and let’s add even more pen/lipstick holders (I carry a lot of both). It is a VERY nice-looking bag.
What I don’t quite get is why more of these bags don’t have zippered closures. I’m carrying a $2000 laptop, a tablet, and my wallet in these things. I don’t need someone sticking their hands in and walking away with my valuables. While I know a zipper isn’t going to stop a good pickpocket, it would give me some piece of mind (and why NOT put a locking zipper in at the same time).
I agree, Pam. I prefer a zipping bag, too. Expensive tech aside, if I like something enough to lug it around, I don’t want to lose it because my bag tipped over and it fell out without me noticing.
