A strong and versatile tote with a good amount of structure

My Review

The Truck is one of my favorite every day use bags from Tom Bihn. Much like the Daylight, the Truck tends to be the bag that I use most frequently (along with its older and retired brother, the Moveable Feast – a bag built very similarly to the Truck).

It’s pretty much an open-top tote bag with structure. There are three main compartments that are divided by the same material the bag is constructed from – 525 Ballistic Nylon. This gives the bag a very defined shape, which means that it won’t collapse or fall over randomly. The material is more than tough enough for all of its potential uses. My main three uses are:

  1. Quick trips to the grocery store – I’ll use this or the Small Shop Bag (but I usually just get my groceries delivered so this isn’t really a big deal)
  2. Trips to the swimming pool – since small kids need a lot of swimming gear (see the video 👆) I use this bag to cart it all around.
  3. Carting water and coffee to work. All of the water and coffee! I frankly don’t like our Keurig machine and don’t think our water is cold enough, so I bring enough water/coffee to last me roughly half the day. (Yes, if it sounds like I’m particular, it’s ‘cause I am!)

The structure is a great part of this bag, but it limits its versatility – I can’t carry it in my backpack as a shopping bag like I do the Small Shop Bag. That’s a super minor nitpicky observation, but it’s a useful one for those who are looking for bags to put into other bags (bagception?) For that, I’d recommend the Zip-Top Shop Bag or even the Yeoman Duffel.

What I Like 👍
  • Lots of room to do shopping, carting stuff around - you name it.
  • The bag has lots of structure, which means it can almost always stand on its own.
  • Probably one of the most versatile totes you can own.
What I Don't Like 👎
  • Can't fold it up easily like you can with other Tom Bihn bags.
Use This If
  • You need a structured tote bag that can handle anything you throw at it.

My Costco and Road Trip Bag!

I use my Dawn Truck for Costco runs. The compartments help keep items organized and from getting smashed. It's also a great road trip bag. Holding snacks, books and any extras you may need. It's easy to carry and stands up in the car.
