Rated 5 out of 5 by SkeeterB Well made, super comfortable to carry
This is my first back bag purse. I could not have made a better buy than the Healthy Back Bag. Small sized leather bag has more than enough room to hold my carry about needs. And, bonus! Such great pockets for organization both within and without. Bag's large zipper opening allows easy access and viewing of interior items. Outer pockets stay securely attached. Carried it for three weeks and leather is already supple making this bag a comfy shopping companion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsDebbieP Still my #1 purse
I usually ditch a purse after a month or so.. hate lugging them around, but this shoulder bag is still going strong and I've had it for a few years now.
The black material on the shoulder strap is starting to crack (but it doesn't really affect anything, including the look). And my purse was getting REALLY dirty - should have gotten a darker leather, perhaps).
I tried several leather cleaners (no results) and then I tried an Enjo cloth -with just water -- and I have a brand new bag again. Looking fantastic.
I chose the larger bag, which is at times too big, but then when I take my iPad with me or want to stuff a sweater in the bag I am so glad I got the larger bag!
Two thumbs up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by equinemom52 This item is a must!
This bag is great! The shape of it lends itself to throwing it over your shoulder without the adjustable straps falling off. Being a packrat, I really like how much it can hold and all of the pocket options. I have the leather version and the stitching reminds me of the fine work found on saddles and bridles - much better than you see on similar bags by other manufacturers. Overall a great investment!

I recently visited the flagship store and purchased the small black leather bag. It is just the right size to carry to work everyday and organizes all my paraphernalia Love the outside pockets, the inside pockets and keychain hooks. It is noticeably more comfortable to carry than my usual "hobo" style handbags with the added bonus of all the organizational features. Love it! Time will tell how it holds up to wear but it does seem exceptionally well constructed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JerryH Review of Black Leather Healthy Bag
I purchased this small leather healthy bag for my wife who has a back problem, and she couldn't be more pleased. It helps to relieve pressure on her back, but just as important, the tear-drop design is both unique and handsome. It is well designed, durable, and meets her every need. What more can one say? It was a great investment and should be long-lasting.
This was our first purchase from L.L. Bean and we couldn't be happier, both with what we purchased and service we received.

This is my 4th time buying this purse. I absolutely love the multi compartments and functionality. My only negative comment is the material under the shoulder strap is puckered. The puckering on my last purse ended up cracking, that's why I had to buy another one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ShopperSue2 Major change
Back Bag has been changed from original item. Quality is substantially lowered. There is no outside pocket for cell phone as was in earlier model. Inside pockets smaller.
Am returning replacement bag!

Rated 3 out of 5 by PJ45 I have loved these purses for years
Have had Healthy Back Bags for years. All colors. When zipper broke on my black microfiber one because I stuffed it too full, I decided I deserved a leather one. Expensive. It has all the features and pockets of microfiber one except the pocket under shoulder strap. I miss that pocket as I am used to throwing my glasses or phone into it. Leather is not as soft as I had hoped either.
Over all, I love this bag....but prefer the microfiber one.

I have two of the small bags and two of the mini size (mini is no longer offered). One each in tan and one each in black. The black small bag zipper broke and I sent the bag back for replacement. After a bit of mild confusion, I received the replacement bag. I love it!
I wish the mini bag was still offered.
