I received the tote from a different retailer about two weeks ago. Like another review indicated, there is an odor when you open the tote. I opened all the pockets, and let it sit in a room I don't frequent, and once the tote "aired out", the smell is completely gone.
The tote itself is AWESOME! I travel to my daughter's home out of state for crops, and this tote will allow me to bring all my essential tools, including my Spellbinder die cut machine. There is plenty of room for punches, embellishments, paper, and just about anything else you can think of. I also bought the shoulder bag that fits over the handle which will make it really easy to travel through the airport.
Well worth the hassle of airing it out!!!
