Tote bags are always useful. This one is relatively small and could even be described as a handbag. It has quite a large front zipped pocket, an interior zipped pocket and 2 open interior pockets. There is a hook so that you can attach keys and not lose them at the bottom of your bag and there is hook closure for added security should you wish. I could make this with a top zip closure if that is what you would like. The only disappointment with this is that I should have better lined the front pocket. Otherwise, I am very happy with this.
