I have four monster trucks. I bought my first one because I’m familiar with TB quality and reviews saying how handy they are. When I bought it, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it. Another tote? Really? Soon after my first monster truck I bought another, and another, and another.
I use them for *everything*. It’s my best grocery bag. The grocery clerks always comment on how simple and effective the design is.
It’s my best car bag. Everyone in the house (including the dog) gets a bag. You can pack whatever you want, but it must fit in the bag. The MT size and shape means it fits perfectly behind seats/on the floor, and they all pack perfectly in the back of my Outback (with room to spare) without obstructing my view. If you have other TB bags, you might know what I mean. The MT also packs in the car well alongside the Aeronaut.
I used to use LL Bean totes for this purpose, but the lower weight, cut of the top of the MT (hide under the arm, lower on the outside so you can grab things), compartments, and structured but flexible MT material are far superior.
It’s also my casual go-bag. To the park? MT. To the dog wash station? MT. Sleepover? MT.
Unlike others, I don’t find the MT is too big. Sometimes I don’t fill it up all the way, but more often than not, I use the space — especially at the grocery store. In fact, I bought and returned the classic truck in favor of the MT.
