Why shoppers love it

On top of being one of this week’s top Movers and Shakers on Amazon Canada, this tote has received a solid 3.8-star rating from hundreds of reviewers. Whether you plan to use it for work or leisure, it’s got the stamp of approval from shoppers.

“Love this bag! I got the coffee colour and it's perfect for work as a teacher,” reads one review. “I fit my laptop, personal items and lunch in it. It's not bulky looking and has a inside pocket that can come in/out with button attachments. I'm only 5 ft so finding a bag that's not too big on me and holds what I need is a bonus.”

“Took me months to choose a purse on Amazon. Ended up with this one and very glad I did. I've been using this everyday for over two months now and it is holding up very well. Solid construction and stitching,” says another. “I was concerned (as I usually am with purses) about the handles but there is no sign of tear, cease, separation or breakage.”

While this bag has received hundreds of five-star reviews, it seems that the compact size of the TcIFE bag has brought down its overall rating.

“I purchased this purse as a replacement for my backpack for work. The purse is exactly as is, if not better than what I expected from the price, although ultimately I had to return it as it was smaller than expected. Makes a great shoulder bag, but is just a bit too small to be considered what I call a ‘tote’.”

To buy or not to buy?

Due to the mixed reviews on this versatile handbag, you may be wondering whether it’s worth shelling out for. Based on customer feedback, as long as you don’t mind the smaller size of this tote and the fact that it is made out of a leather alternative, then chances are that you’ll be satisfied with your purchase.

For those looking for a real leather tote instead, you may want to consider the Bostanten Women’s Leather Handbag, which offers a similar look.
