I always want a tote to put in my cell phone, iPad, wallet and keys. So I don't have to carry them all in my pocket or on my hand. They are really heavy in my trousers pockets. I have to sacrifice my comfort to carry them with me until I found Sirocco which is a useful big volume bag, the more important thing to me is the looking of the bag. It's super elegant with the iconic tassel, unlike other tote bags which are really too simple to complete your style. It can go with my formal suit or sport jacket style. I bet you will take it to everywhere !
