Think about it, seriously. What is a tote? It's basically a large-format briefcase with an open top instead of a flap or clasp closure and larger straps/handles, though they don't all have long straps for use as a shoulder bag. I just really don't get the "they aren't manly" thing. You could also find some very poofty briefcases and duffle bags, too. But, in and of itself, there is nothing wrong with a tote. It fits a specific need: briefcases are generally smaller, designed to carry documents. A weekender/duffle, on the other hand, is generally too large, as it is designed as a piece of luggage. A tote splits the difference, making it easy if you carry books, notebooks, a laptop, etc. A 16X14 inch tote with about a six inch drop on the handles is the way to go, IMHO. What is "feminine" about something like this?
