American-Made Bags: Tote

A camouflage carryall for quick getaways


Fall brings with it the promise of travel getaways from weekend leaf-peeping to warmer-weather escapes. Wherever you may go this season the right bag is key. We’ve gathered a variety of American-made options to pack for weekend jaunts and extended holidays and present a different one each day this week. For Tuesday we continue with the time-tested tote.

Pointer Tote

Sewn by hand in small production runs in Bristol, Tennessee, this heavy duty tote from trusted workwear outfitter Pointer is as basic as it gets, which we appreciate. While the thick canvas bag comes in multiple colorways—Hickory Stripe, Indigo Blue Denim, Brown Duck—we’re digging the ever-popular Woodland camo. On top of the Made in USA stamp to prove its worth, the bag’s got double-stitched seams and reinforced bottoms to drive the point home.
