    Will the Truck function as work/EDC tote?

    For those of you that have the Truck, will it work as a work tote/edc bag? I have an old Kipling tote that I carry several thick letter size files, planner, a couple notebooks, IPad Air in a Belkin case, pens/pencils, Iphone, chargers and various other miscellaneous things. I use my TC to hold my COW, keys, altoids and a travel size tube of Advil. Id also like to stick my lunch bag and a water bottle in somewhere too. I tried the S25 and it is too large for my height. Thanks for your thoughts.

    As always, it depends a lot on exactly what you want to carry with you... the Truck is fairly large and rectangular... if the S25 was too big, the Truck should be too big as well

    I would try the Pop Tote and then a Zip Top Large Shop Bag or Original Large Shop Bag before The Truck based on what you describe.... since you're in the US, take advantage of the lower shipping cost - buy 'em all to test pack - and send back the ones that don't work
    I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

    I love my Truck but I can't imagine carrying it comfortably every day. It's great for hauling things like groceries or gym gear, but the open top and handle placement would make it uncomfortable to tote everyday carry items. I would try a Pop Tote with a Medium Cafe Freudian Slip or something.

    Love my truck too!
    If you're in a car driving to work I think the Truck would be fine, but if you're commuting on any sort of public transit, I would take Kieri's or G42's suggestions.

    I would not want to commute with an open top bag. If the S25 was too large for you, the Truck is going to be enormous. Have you tried a Pilot? It has a place for the water bottle, the TC in the front, files in the back. Lunch in one of the other compartments or in the back.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I have a couple of LSB’s, but I was afraid things would be a bit jumbled together without the dividers the Truck has. I am definitely going to try it though! The Pilot is too briefcase-y for me so that’s out. And honestly, I was looking for an excuse to get a Dawn Truck ��
