Rated 5 out of 5 by gypsysmom Excellent Bag
This is the fourth healthy back bag that I have purchased. I have bought these in leather, in suede, and in the canvas style. They last forever so I still have my other ones, but I enjoy changing for the seasons. These have great organizational features that allow me to find each item inside without even having to look. I have purchased pricier bags, but they stay on the shelf. These are lightweight (especially the suede and canvas styles) and look presentable for both worship and play.

Rated 4 out of 5 by baglady47 GREAT BAG, but....
I use this bag daily, as a camera bag to carry multiple lenses and accessories. I LOVE IT. It's comfortable, roomy, plenty of pockets to keep EVERYTHING i need for a day. Unfortunately the strap has totally cracked and unraveled.... HOWEVER I am sending it back for a replacement since LLBEAN is awesome with things like this. So i gave it a 4 star, because I think the straps could be better, especially for the money put out for it... BUT other than that will highly recommend and say IT'S THE BEST!

Rated 2 out of 5 by LLBeanCardHolder Healthy Back Bag, Leather
I love the bag but not the strap. It is 18 months old and the inside of the strap has fallen apart. It is a part of the bag so can not be replaced. At $199.00 for a leather purse I expected the strap to hold up.

This is absolutely the best pocketbook that I have owned. I love the black leather and it is so very comfortable to walk around for hours with it on your shoulder. It has a wide shoulder strap, so no cutting in to your shoulders. Definitely worth the price and I would definitely buy another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lurcherlover Best shoulder bag ever
My L.L. Bean BROCADE bag finally had to go and while I really wanted another brocade one, I am pleasently surprised at how much I like the leather one. Wouldn't change a thing. Only shoulder bag I've ever had that sticks to my shoulder like it is glued there.
Thanks, LL Bean

by 512Grandma3 Perfect. Just the right amount of pockets for keys
This is my third kidney shaped purse. I really like the tapestry one that is larger. The leather ones just never wear out.The smaller ones are perfect for everyday use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by canfly Love this bag!
I love the "healthy back bag" and it's the only purse I've used for as long as I can remember. I love the pockets. I've actually resisted buying a smart phone because my flip phone fits in the one pocket so perfectly! I'm on my third brown "healthy back bag". It's always the zipper that wears out first and forces me to buy a new one. I do stuff my purse really full though and kind of abuse it. I find that they usually last me about 4 or 5 years when the zipper finally starts to not seal properly. A heavy duty zipper would be great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lizzyj Bring back the old bag!!
I really liked the canvas bag, the leather is OK but it would be better if the color was lighter. The biggest problem in my opinion is the strap, the color does not match the bag and it is NYLON, the old strap was canvas and leather (much more durable). The strap is the worse change, the nylon portion looks cheap and the color on the bag I ordered stood out from a distance (color was much darker than the purse). Personally, I prefer the canvas bag and the ORIGIONAL design!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChrisMWe Soft leather well constructed
A beautiful soft well constructed leather bag with lots of pockets. I wanted this bag for a long time. I get so many compliments on it and it stays on your shoulder. Such a plus. Highly recommend this bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by casualanne A great bag
This purchase is a replacement for a healthy back bag that I got about four years ago. It had finally started looking really bad. I could have kept it longer - but decided to get a new one. I have this bag in three colors - black for winter and spring, tan canvas for summer and brown for fall - and I love them all. The leather is good quality and lasts for years. It carries nicely on your shoulder. The inside pockets are well placed so you can organize everything that you need (and then some). My only criticism is that the slots for pens aren't deep enough and the clips on the pens won't fit over the cloth and secure the pens so they don't fall out.
