    Assuming that you are alone and not carrying it for someone else, would you carry a classic LL Bean Boat & Tote bag?

    I have a very similar Lands End canvas tote with navy handles that I carry all the time when we're out shopping. In the age of reusable grocery bags, it's pretty obviously not a purse (assuming that's your concern).

    My wife and I have half a dozen of these floating around and use them for everything from grocery shopping to carrying extra binders to and from work. They're spectacular and more rugged than many totes.

    I use one everyday. Especially if you find yourself reaching into your bag a lot, its great. No constant unzipping and zipping, etc.

    I'll give my wife one, but I feel funny about buying one for me. What are the ideal colors? Navy?

    I might get one if I have a kid and would put diapers and toys in it for him/her

    Navy, green, red, & yellow look just fine for a gent on the go.

    I would carry it if it got too heavy for my wife.

    I don't see myself carrying one around Memphis, but if I lived in NYC I wouldn't have a problem with carrying a tote or similar bag. Just don't have much if a reason to carry one around here.
