10 Sporty Totes That Can Carry All Your Essentials
Leave nothing behind!
(SPOT.ph) Tote bags will never go out of fashion as long as the impulse to bring everything with us wherever we go remains in our DNA. Keys, sanitizer, wipes, a water bottle, a book, another book—you know the drill. The good news is that the designs for these carryalls have only improved with age. Check out how sportswear brands have put their spin on them.
Check out these sporty totes that will fit all your essentials:
Stan Smith Shopper Bag (P1,300) from Adidas
Stan Smith stans, this is the accessory you’ve been waiting for. Created in the image and likeness of your favorite '80s-inspired tennis shoes, this Adidas tote bag is perfect for carrying all your everyday essentials. While its predominantly white colorway might seem intimidating, keeping it spotless is bound to be less of a challenge compared to the effort you put into caring for your sneakers.
Heritage JDI Tote Bag (P1,195) from Nike
Nike has a tote bag that comes with a clip where you can attach your water bottle or keys, which frees up precious real estate for other daily must-haves, such as emergency snacks. We also like that it comes with a side of positive encouragement: Repeated in bold type is the brand’s tagline, reminding you that every single journey starts with the first step.
Canvas Tote Bag (P1,719) from Converse
Back when being a student meant lugging heavy textbooks around, everyone had a graphic tote bag just like Converse’s carryall. Now that most classes are held online, it’s more suitable for those essential trips to the supermarket, foldable umbrella, and all.
City Tote Bag (P1,749) from Puma
If you’re looking for something that’s more utilitarian, this tote bag from Puma has a zippered front pocket for items that require easy access and two types of handles that allow you to wear the bag on your shoulder or carry it in one hand. Its functionality doesn’t take away from its form either. The textured finish gives it some street cred while still keeping it work-appropriate.
Women’s UA Favorite Metallic Tote (P1,795) from Under Armour
Hitting the gym (safely) has never been more fun with Under Armour’s metallic tote. After all, why settle for a boring gym bag when you use something that’s oh-so-shiny-and-new? Not a fan of working out? That’s cool, too. We can totally picture you bringing this bag on days when you need a literal carryall.
AT Sport Moment Tote (P2,290) from Asics
You might not be able to attend the Tokyo Olympics, which has been rescheduled to late 2021, but you can still get into the spirit with Asics’s Japanese-inspired tote bags. One features a bold typography that says “Tokyo,” while the other has graphics of athletes with Mount Fuji in the background. Both have a small interior pocket and a snap fastener that makes it easy for you to reach for your things. They also have an adjustable strap, so you can wear them as they are or as a messenger bag.
The Rest Is Written Tote (U.S. $78, roughly P3,778) from Lululemon
Made with water-repellant fabric, this Lululemon tote bag will keep all your essentials safe even when the weather turns for the worse. It has interior pockets to hold smaller items such as your keys and wallet as well as a special interior pocket just for your water bottle. You have no excuse for misplacing your things ever again.
Expander Side Zip Tote (P3,412) from Champion
Champion’s minimalist tote might not look like it can pack a lot, but don’t let first impressions fool you: it’s a grower, not a shower. In case you need the extra room, simply pull the zipper on the side to expand the tote bag. Remember, every inch counts.
Explore Utility Tote (P4,990) from The North Face
Even though there isn’t a lot of exploring to be had these days, it’s still important to have a bag that travels well. Whether you’re doing a grocery run or reporting to work as part of your company’s skeleton workforce, The North Face’s bag ticks all the boxes with its adjustable strap, durable fabric, and inner zippered mesh pocket.
Essentials Graphic Tote Bag (U.S. $35, roughly P1,695) from Reebok
This tote bag from Reebok is so spacious, it can actually double as an overnight bag. It also comes in two distinct colors, so you and your significant other can each have one at the ready at all times. You never know when you might need to spend the night.
