Pick-Up Truck

$58.00

The smallest of the three Truck tote bags. Great for work food or library books.

11 liters (670 cu. in.)

Description

The Pick-Up Truck is the smallest of four sizes of our Truck tote. Next size up is the original Truck, and if you’ve got a lot to haul, check out the Monster Truck. If you've got a yoga mat or something big you want to cradle between the handles, check out the Truckasana.

The Pick-Up is a great size for library books, a modest picnic for two,  groceries for one, or a tote to bring breakfast, lunch, and dinner to work (ah, modern life…). It’s a scaled-down version of the original Truck, so everything about the Pick-Up is smaller: the center compartment can (just barely) accommodate four bottles of wine or cider, and the front and back pockets are big enough for small hand-held device like an iPad mini. Wait, did we say everything about it is smaller? Truth is, its handles remain the same length as the original, so you can still carry it over your shoulder. Cute originally meant smart, clever, and the Pick-Up is certainly that, but it’s also cute like adorable. Though we’re not sure we had to point that out.

Otherwise, it’s the same as the other two Trucks (original and Monster): it’s a multipurpose carryall bag, and that means it'll haul groceries of course, but it might also become your go-to beach tote, laundry bag, work/tool bag, or gym bag. You’re likely to find more uses for a Truck than you ever thought possible, and it's a joy to load as it stands up on its own.

The design and layout of all the Trucks will look familiar to those who know our bags: they’re all based upon the Moveable Feast grocery tote. We saw that folks were using the Moveable Feast for more than just groceries, and how they appreciated its organization and utility.  What if we made a simplified version of the Moveable Feast, removing some the grocery-specific features? How about making it a bit bigger? A bit shorter and shallower, to allow for longer handles so we could carry it over the shoulder? We made some prototypes, tweaked them a bit, and then made some more prototypes; we tested them ourselves and gave some to friends to use. The feedback was all good—and not just from the users, but from the baggers at the local co-op as well: the Truck was easy and intuitive to load up, and seemed to swallow far more than anyone expected. Like our other carryall tote bags, the Pick-Up Truck has über-comfortable Poron® padded handles. A plastic stiffener in the center compartment adds stability to the load; you can fold the bag loosely around the hard bottom when necessary.

My favorite tote

I have TB totes in all styles, sizes & colors. The Pickup is my favorite. Not too large, since I tend to overstuff & end up with more weight than I should carry. I have several & use them every day. It’s great for carrying books, lunches, essentials such as medical supplies, change of clothes, etc. Wonderful for quick stops at the market or pharmacy. One in the car holds small items so everything stays organized. One at home work keeps frequently used items within reach. Great for holding small sewing projects. Wonderful as an EDC with various TB organizational pouches. Hoping the Pickup comes back in production so I can get a few more. Additional color selection would be nice. I like to have unique colors for different uses.

Cute and functional

Love it! My family has all three sizes of the trucks, and this one is my favorite for day-to-day use. I was recently able to use it to hold my muddy sneakers, packable raincoat, and a new plant from the greenhouse without making a mess in the car. The Seapine recycled fabric cleaned up like a dream! All I had to do was spray it off with the hose and leave it standing to dry.

Perfect size

The Pickup Truck is the perfect size, not too big or too small. It holds my knitting, or is just the right size for a quick run to the store. Love it!

Perfect size and well made!

Perfect size for me to take to work. Fits my lunch, water bottle, snacks, and a book! I love the separate compartments, keeps my book dry. And it's so well made and sturdy. I so happy I finally bought a bag for myself after buying several as gifts for others.
