Before we were all sheltering in place, we asked our community what their favorite way was to get their groceries back to their dwelling. We saw everything from simple store-brand grocery bags to high tech dyneema cuben fiber totes that would be at home on the ISS.
Here are some of the favorites, in no particular order.
OTTE Gear – GP Tote
Whether you’re carrying your gear on a field exercise or milk and bread from the grocer, this tote does it all and is as burly as you’d expect. Designed to carry ammo, boots, grimy gear, wet clothes, jackets, equipment. Includes loop patch for personalization.
Remote Equipment – Bravo 18
For this project, we looked at the fundamentals of how we grab and haul our gear and then created a utility bag that works in a number of carry formats. While we generally think of the BRAVO 18 defying a single category, we’re calling it a multi-hauler.
Prometheus Design Werx – CaB-2
Made of rugged 1000D Cordura® nylon, and constructed with full wrap webbing for extra strength, this simple yet highly versatile tote bag will tackle any random loads that you can fit inside it. We encourage users to stop using the plastic throw-away bags and get onboard with our re-usable Carry-all-Bag for your daily carry needs. Based on the popular CaB Tote from our friends over at Tinkerwork Shop, our version features short and long carry straps, 4 organizer pockets, and also perfectly nests the American paper grocery bag. You’ll find the CaB-2 to be more versatile and handy than you ever imagined. Keep a few always ready in your favorite rig, at the cabin, workshop, or on the coat hook.
Mystery Ranch – Booty Bag
Need a heavier weight pack for your valuable booty? Whether to load up your gym togs, tote your farmer’s market bounty, or serve as a bike commuter backpack, the 500D Ripstop BOOTY BAG will quickly become your daily driver. Whatever your booty, you can carry it with ease in this ultra-versatile bag.
Tom Bihn – The Truck
The Truck is a multipurpose carryall bag: it’ll haul groceries of course, but it might also become your go-to beach tote, laundry bag, work/tool bag, or gym bag. Like a pickup, you’re likely to find more uses for a Truck than you ever thought possible
Arc’teryx – Granville 18 Tote
A seemingly simple tote for everyday living gets elevated with weather protective advanced materials, thoughtful features and exceptional Arc’teryx craftsmanship. Sized for a day’s necessities, quick trip to the grocery or farmer’s market, or to serve as a carryon while traveling, the Granville 18 Tote is versatile, durable, lightweight and designed to handle a range of tasks.
Kammok – Tote
The Kammok Tote is a fully up-cycled product, made from the leftover materials of our Roo hammock. Perfect for transporting your hammock and slackline to the park, picking up groceries from the market, or carrying other goods worthy of traveling in style, our tote promises recycled materials at no sacrifice to quality or durability. Grab, pack, and get going on your next adventure!
High Above – The Good Tote
Now you can carry High Above’s same great quality and durability on or off the trail. Our new Tote Bag features waterproof X-Pac materials, a zippered inside pocket, and tactical toggle loop closure. Whether you’re filling it with groceries or gear, you’ll appreciate the high quality construction and materials High Above is known for.
Sea To Summit – Ultra-Sil Shopping Tote
The Ultra-Sil™ Shopping Bag is a tiny reusable shopping bag that is made of the same high tear strength fabric we make our pack covers, compression sacks and stuff sacks of, so they’re amazingly strong and durable. We’ve also made sure that the stress points have bar-tacked reinforced stitching. You can fill these shopping bags to capacity week in, week out and they will keep performing like new. And because the Ultra-Sil™ Shopping Bag is so compact and lightweight you can stash it anywhere – the tiny packed size clips easily onto a key ring with the attached carabiner or tucks in a purse or in a jacket pocket, so you never have it out of reach.
SOE – Grocery Bag
Similar size to the cloth grocery bags at your grocery store but way cooler. Made of tough 1000 den cordura and give you that tactical look and strength at your hippy grocery store. Get the shocked look from the minivan soccer moms.
Baggu – Standard Baggu
Our best selling reusable bag is not just for the grocery store, it goes everywhere and hauls (practically) anything. Carry in your hand or over your shoulder. Holds 2–3 plastic grocery bags worth of stuff. Folds into a flat 5″ × 5″ pouch. Holds 50 lbs. Now made from 40% recycled nylon sourced from pre-consumer waste.
Hitchhikers – The Hitchhikers Tote
At Hitchhikers, we love good materials and we love the simplicity and convenience of a tote. Putting the two together gives us the Hitchhikers Tote – a well-built (in our opinion!) carry-all solution that is perfect for the quick in-and-out and lift-and-go situations. Proudly designed in Singapore, the HitchHikers Tote is our take on the urban tote.
Red Oxx – Market Tote
Toughest tote bag on the market, we got the video to prove it. Designed and hand-crafted with pride from American-sourced materials in Billings, Montana U.S.A.
Sabukan – The Market Tote
Our update of the original Mayan design: square, with a strap, made of the best material available. The cornerstone of Sabukan’s adaptable modular carry system, this crossbody bag rolls up small for packing, but deploys quickly to handle to your changing needs.
After 30 years in our range, it’s one of the most hardworking bags in the world. It’s big and strong and carries most things. Be it shopping, doing laundry or going to the beach, it goes wherever you go.
