Louis Vuitton Carryall Review

The Louis Vuitton Carryall luggage bag is one of the products in the Monogram canvas family of Louis Vuitton products. Other quite similar bags in this family include the likes of the Keepall 55 bag, the Deauville and the Sac Chasse Bag; among others. While I confess to being an old-time fan of Louis bags, having used so many of the products from this label, it is the Carryall – which I have only gotten to use quite recently – that I have been most enchanted with.

As befits a ‘luggage bag’ Louis Vuitton Carryall is quite a huge bag. In terms of length, we are looking at about 16 inches, with the height towering at 11 inches and the bag’s diameter being some 12 inches. These dimensions make it a bag on which you can carry quite a bit of stuff; without the bag having to bulge too much and mess up with your image. The fact that it is based on the considerably sturdy monogram canvas makes Carryall even more suited for use a luggage bag.

The color scheme on the Carryall is dark brown with cream crosses all over; creating an impression of a checked outer covering. This color scheme also helps make Carryall a rather stylish looking (and classical) bag. The crosses are either ‘standalone’ in the brown background, or enclosed in circular or diagonal (parallelogram-shaped) ‘casings.’

Louis Vuitton Carryall is as exciting on the inside as on the outside. Open the bag, and you are met with a soft textile lining; the very inviting variety. For the stuff you don’t want to get mixed up with the rest, Vuitton provides you with quite a generous interior pocket on the Louis Vuitton Carryall where you can keep such stuff.

For a securing mechanism, Louis provides the users of the Louis Vuitton Carryall with a zipper mechanism. And as befits a true ‘luggage’ bag, the zipper here ends, on the one side, with a provision for a padlock; so that you can actually secure the bag further with a padlock.

For trimmings, Louis Vuitton has opted to use leather on the Carryall. This is the variety of leather that is referred to as being naturally oxidizing. Such leather, thanks to this natural oxidation mechanism, only gets better with age (like wine).

All said and done, Carryall comes across as an ideal bag for a number of applications. One of these is as a sports bag – where the bag can be particularly ideal. Second is as an ordinary ‘weekend bag’ – you know, the sort you go shopping with (of course for light shopping). Even for travelling, especially where you are ‘travelling light,’ Carryall could be a good bag too. It is a bag into which you can fit all the kit a lady needs, yet still look stylish when straddling with it under your arm.
