Nadine Travel Tote Review

Price and Where to Buy the Nadine Travel Tote: The Nadine Travel Tote was on sale at the time of writing on Aide de Camp’s website for $199.53, or the regular price of $229 on Amazon.

How the Nadine Travel Tote Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. You can use the Nadine Travel Tote for pretty much anything. I’ll be using it as my go-to “personal item” when I fly. It’s small enough to fit under an airplane seat, but big enough to hold the in-flight essentials (including a laptop and camera and anything else that I don’t want to check). The tote was designed for using with camera equipment, which is why it has a padded box that adds extra compartments, that you can configure in different ways. I don’t have a heavy-duty camera, but I like the padded box for keeping everything organized. It’s also removable and folds flat for storage when I want to travel light. (Even without the padded box, there are plenty of pockets to help me keep the tote organized.) The laptop sleeve is removable as well, which is great for when I’m not bringing a computer. I love how lightweight the tote is, and it also has a sleeve in the back to slip over my rolling suitcase handle, so I can carry-it hands-free.
  • Value: 7/10. The price is expensive for a tote, but this is large enough that it could be used as a weekend bag if you pack light, which helps justify the price. The sale is a good deal if you can grab it.
  • Durability: 10/10. The canvas exterior is water-resistant, so you should be okay if you get caught in a rainstorm. The zippers, straps, and padding are all very well made.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. The tote comes in charcoal, slate, and cream colors, all of which are very fashionable and will work in both a business setting or for leisure. It has a unique but understated design, and can match pretty much any luggage color.

Final Verdict: The Nadine Travel Tote is now my go-to personal item any time I travel.
