Functional, efficient and the perfect size to carry your record collection in, the humble tote has become a staple across the globe. Yet while it’s easy to get your hands on any old Tote bag, we thought we’d help by finding some of the best and most durable on the market, that also won’t see you have to break the bank.
Here are some of our favourites...
Battenwear Packable Tote, £49.00
Battenwear is a brand known for making fashionable gear for the more adventurous, and their Tote bags are no different. Crafted from a cotton blend, it’s as durable as it is stylish and can be tucked away into its interior zip pocket when not needed. Comes in a bunch of different colours, if bright orange isn't your bag.

RAINS Tote Bag, £39.00
The Scandinavians do everything well and making bags is no exception. Born in Copenhagen, RAINS has always been a brand made with the weather in mind, which is why their Tote bags are made from the same material as their coats. Waterproof to protect your belongings, alongside some neat interior pockets, RAINS has done it again.
