When it comes to carrying around lots of gear from place to place, few bags are as versatile as the tote bag. Whether carried over the shoulder or by the handles, the wide opening found at the top of a tote bag lets you lug around items that are taller than the bag itself.

But if your idea of a tote bag is an ungainly shopping bag, you should look at the new DSPTCH ECOPAK Unit Tote. The ECOPAK 450D RS external fabric is a new material reminiscent of X-Pac consisting of three layers: 450D ripstop face, 45º Blue CrossPly yarn for minimal stretch and increased tear resistance, and an RUV matte film that’s abrasion and UV resistant. Needless to say, it’s something that can stand up to daily use far more than a plastic or paper bag from a grocery store can do. And its stylish yet minimal looks make for an everyday carry bag that you can tote around with confidence.

With 19 liters of capacity and a generous easy-access top opening, the DSPTCH ECOPAK Unit Tote has the space you need to fit your daily essentials and the goods you might buy from a supermarket or store on your way back home. As you might suspect from the name, the ECOPAK Unit Tote is made of recyclable material, making it more sustainable for the environment than your standard off-the-shelf bag or pack.

You can carry the bag with the top handles, which have a short and long option for the carry option of your choice. And the bag itself features a magnetic Fidlock closure which is far more convenient than the button or hook-and-loop closure you might find on another tote bag. And if you need some structure in your life, the DSPTCH ECOPAK Unit Tote is compatible with a variety of padded laptop and tablet sleeves and a camera insert to organize and store your electronic EDC essentials safely.

The DPSTCH ECOPAK Unit Tote is a minimalist tote bag made in the USA with smart and functional everyday carry in mind. It’s built more strongly and sustainably than the standard tote bag, while looking much more professional than the rest. Check it out at the link below, and pick between two styles (Landscape and Portrait), colorways, and carry options that best fit your carry needs.
