    I tested this Stow it All Tote bag and it is a nice tote with great features! You can add whatever pockets you want and divide them as you like too. The closure on the front flap keeps things inside the front pocket. On the back pocket, I left mine large so that I could fit a paper notebook in the back pocket, but it can easily be divided in half s well. Inside a zippered pocket and more slip pockets if you want. It all closes with a recessed zipper to keep all your belongings inside your bag! The Stow it all Tote can be made to look like a professional satchel or briefcase or a stylish tote all depending on the fabrics you choose.
