The Truck is the original, mid-size of our four sizes of our Truck tote. Next size down is the Pick-Up 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 Truck is a multipurpose carryall bag: it'll haul groceries of course, but it might also become your go-to beach tote, laundry bag, work/tool bag, or gym bag. Like a pickup, you’re likely to find more uses for a Truck than you ever thought possible.
The Truck will look familiar to those who know our bags: it shares the basic design and layout of 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.
The Truck features a large, squarish center space that’s perfect for gallon jugs of water or milk. Open-top pockets are situated front and back—for your shopping list, of course, but they'd easily hold a book or an iPad. We made the pockets big enough to accommodate folded brown paper grocery bags, too, which are handy to have if you need the overflow capacity. The side compartments are huge and can handle quarts/liters of milk or a pair of running shoes. Like our other carryall tote bags, the 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.
Two Trucks will hold about as much weight as most of us can lift: If you live in the city and don’t own a car, you’ll be able to schlep an unbelievable amount of stuff by hand. If you do have a car, it's good to know that one Truck will fully utilize the floor space behind either the driver’s or passenger's seat of most cars.
Sewn in Seattle
Our bags are designed and sewn right here in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.
That allows us to be control freaks in the best way possible; we have direct control and oversight of the quality of our materials, our products, and the jobs and working environment that we help create. It also offers us a unique spontaneity: when we have an idea for a new product or accessory, we can design it, figure out how to build it, add it to our website and be ready to ship it out our front door all within just a few weeks. How cool is that?

Yes, yes yes - I truly recommend this Truck Tote. I’ve been using it for groceries, yoga class, farmer’s market, and picnics. It’s become my go to bag for every day use as well. It can hold A LOT and still looks decent on your shoulder. Designed with great proportions for the internal spaces, this bag has proved so useful to me I use it nonstop. It’s also extremely well crafted and the material is excellent so you can load it up without any hesitation. I got one for myself in Dec. And now gifted it to a close friend for her birthday. A great gift for anyone who likes awesome bags!

I absolutely love this tote. Use it as a carry-on while traveling, a beach bag during vacation and then a grocery bag as well. Easy to clean off from sand and spills. And super easy to organize everything I thought I'd need on a plane in the compartments and pockets! Would recommend it for a variety of uses. Only downside is that it's not the most comfortable to carry on the shoulder - the straps could be lengthened just a bit to accommodate this function better I think!

I work for a company that installs and maintains edible landscapes.
The Truck fits my 100 foot hose, clippers, loppers, hori-hori, 64 oz water jug, notepad, sunscreen, first aid kit, and a small bag of kelp meal + bay guano. I love being able to clip my keys and airpod case to it and how easy it is to carry around sites. It stands up and is easy to put things in and take things out of. I want to get a couple more for grocery shopping/farmers market. It’s so beautifully organized.

Can hold a ton. Versatile
Pros: can hold a bunch, side pockets help stop jostling and increase amount you can fit in it.
Wish for improvement: A way to make the side pockets stowable/adjustable to allow fitting larger items in the central compartment.
Truck is perfect for: Gym bag, firewood, car storage
Monster truck is perfect for: Carrying a week's worth of groceries or a whole kitchen

Great size for groceries, farmers markets, etc. Perfect manageable size when walking and carrying groceries. Love the blue colr and the sturdy material. It's shorter than I anticipated from the pictures on the website, but it really is the perfect size. I love the hard bottom. ❤️ the Truck so much, I sent a couple as a wedding gift to my niece in NYC.
