This is a tote for me. For the vinyl lover in your life, you may consider this vinyl record carryall from Acton. The tote is made to hold up to 40 records inside the proportionally correct canvas bag. Quadruple studded leather straps allow for easy handling and security carrying what will be a heavy load of vinyl. It’s made in Los Angeles where musical dreams are made and broken (usually broken). Available for 175$US. I’d use it.
