Congratulations to the winner of the Victorinox Tote, Laura Sloan of Florida!
Win a perfect travel tote: The Victorinox Victoria Sage Expandable
The new Victorinox Victoria Sage Expandable Travel Tote is a perfect travel tote for the woman on the go, whether she’s traveling for work or leisure. I had the opportunity to use this tote on my recent Viking Ocean Cruise, testing it out on land, sea and in the air, between New York and Puerto Rico. I’m looking forward to taking it on many more trips abroad and closer to home.
Here are five reasons why it makes the perfect travel tote and information on how you can win one:
Its classic design is enduring. The nylon fabric (with contrasting brown luggage leather straps and silver tone metal accents) meshes well with any type of attire, from jeans to a business suit.
The neutral sage color (part of the Fall/Winter 2016 Limited Edition) isn’t too light or too dark so it doesn’t show scuffs or stains. The light-colored interior makes it easy to spot whatever you are looking for inside.
Heavy bags only get heavier when they’re filled. This one starts off lightweight with adjustable straps that are comfortable enough to place on your shoulder when running from one airline terminal to another.
Carryon bags need to have ample space to bring everything you need as well as everything you’ll pick up along the way—whether it’s a sandwich (because your airline offers no food on a 4-hour flight) or extra reading material. The spacious tote has expandable side zips when you need a little extra room.
4) Plenty of pockets
The heart of this purse is the padded computer section in the center, which allowed me to confidently leave my laptop cover at home. The laptop compartment can hold a 15.6” laptop and is easily accessible when you have to remove the laptop passing through airport security. It also has a place for an e-reader.
I counted 11 individual pockets (there may be more) so there truly is a place for everything. Some were open and others zippered. The bonus: the dangling zippered card case on the outside that I used for my business cards.
5) Zillions of zippers
The tote doesn’t skimp on zippers or zippered spaces. The zipper closure across the entire top is perfect for sliding a bag securely under the seat in front of you on the airline. Another zippered compartment on the front and a rear pocket with a magnetic closure offer handy places to store a wallet and cellphone.
Bottom line: A perfect travel tote
Victorinox has a long-history of making superior products since 1884. If the name sounds familiar, this is because it’s the same Swiss company that created the legendary Original Swiss Army Knife.
Now a global company, it has been manufacturing travel gear since 1999. In the case of this travel tote, the company seems to have thought of everything a frequent traveler would want in the perfect travel tote.
Victorinox Swiss Army has agreed to give a Victorinox Victoria Expandable travel tote in the new sage color (currently retailing for $179.00 on Amazon) to one lucky reader of More Time To Travel.
