    Good to hear that the Tote will be making a comeback in the not-too-distant future!

    I heartily second that.

    The ones available now, in various places, are not suitable.
    I am fairly certain that Tom and the team can bring us a first class insulated bag that looks as good as it works.

    I'm glad to hear it!

    I'm still testing, but I think that if you wrap a BBQ chicken (wrapped in a proper bag) in one Utility Tote and then put it in other that actually gives more insulation than the cheapie insulated bag I usually use.

    I recently bought a Utility Tote and now the page for that bag has disappeared from the website! Did I just buy the last one in stock?

    (BTW, I am thrilled with my new Tote!)

    I don't think it will be gone forever, but we just don't have time to make it right now. Maybe when we have more sewers!

    The Utility Tote - on its last legs?

    I see that this is down to only one colour. Is it to die a quiet death, or will it be made again or redesigned?

    The Utility Tote is a great bag, and I own at least 8 of them. But I will admit that the Large Shop Bag is an excellent replacement for it if it's no longer to be made.

    The only features I will miss are the zippered pocket, and the many colours, which allow me to colour-code my shopping bags. Black/Black for chemicals and soaps - things I don't want to mix with food. Crimson/Navy for meat. Olive/Cocoa for earthy vegetables. Kelly/Navy for green vegetables. Sapphire/Steel for fruit. Storm/Sapphire, Steel/something, Plum/Olive for other groceries. And there's another one or two in the back of the car, as well as the Kelly/Navy that I keep in my office for lunchtime shopping expeditions!

    If it's not going to be back, perhaps we need a Conifer sort of shade for Dyneema, so that there are 4 colours of Shop Bag.
