Simone Tote

(1 customer review)



The versatile Simone Tote Bag zips open to an organized main compartment. A large interior pocket (11″ H x 14″ W) can be used as a padded tech pocket to protect your electronic device. A smaller divided slip pocket holds pens and small essentials. Both pockets secure shut with a snap tab. A generous zipper pocket further organizes the spacious interior. The exterior front slip pocket secures with either a snap tab or an alternative wider tab closure that lets you use a turn lock instead of a snap. Handles and a removable crossbody strap make for easy carrying.
