Rated 5 out of 5 by jazmine Custom Large Tote
I ordered as a gift for my son. The bag was much more durable than I expected. Wonderful craftsmanship. The personlization looked great and he will enjoy it for boating and RVing with the family. Large enough to pack the whole days necessary items. Fantastic gift item for the upcoming holidays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveToEat Extra suitcase on return flight; easy to clean
We're just back from visiting family in Alaska. For this trip, I purchased and packed an X-Large, long-handled, zippered bag which we used for transporting our toiletries and clothes from the "hotel" (that is, the camper) to the shower in the house. On the return flight, this bag served as an extra suitcase. The bag came through the airlines intact, but covered with a layer of black grease. All our other tote bags were purchased from the discount bin with amusing names, our favorite being "Utopia". But this new bag was our first full-price bag with our name monogrammed on it. I was so disappointed in the airlines. While L. L. Bean recommends spot cleaning, I put my soiled bag in the tub last night, got out a stiff brush with which I used to scrub tire whitewalls, and covered the bag with liquid laundry detergent. I scrubbed everything, including the soiled handles. After rinsing the bag, I put it in front of a fan for several hours to dry. It came out perfect! So perfect that even the red handles and trim did not bleed. As predicted from my internet searches, the bag is a little less stiff, which I actually prefer. My advice would be to use a lot less laundry detergent than you think you need, as I went way overboard and spent a lot of time rinsing. "Utopia" has been around for a long time, carrying everything from computer monitors to shoes, so I'm going to wash it next.

Rated 4 out of 5 by onebeachbum Please add pockets
I love the size, durability and the ability to personalize each bag. I purchased the XL with the short handles. I really wish that it had pockets like other competitors. You can fit anything in this bag you want.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SADO Softer colors PLEASE
Small and XL need softer color options please. These are great gifts for kids and babies and the bold dark colors don't interest me. LOVE the bags though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by only1lgt Wonderful bags
I have three of these tote bags and use them all for different things. The large bag is used as a carry-on when flying to stash all our magazines, tablet, books, etc. The medium bag is what I use to carry all my sales samples and the other medium bag is what I take to the grocery store. I can wash these bags when they get dirty and although they don't look exactly like they did when they were new, I like the fact that the canvas is a little more pliable. I would like to have an outside pocket for my keys and maybe a pocket on the inside for my cell phone. That being said, I LOVE these bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AGCShopper Great and Sturdy
I have a large tote with zip-top and love it. The zip-top lays down flat if you wish not to zip it, giving it the same look as the tote bag, open top. I love having the option to zip the top or leave it open. Large is a perfect size for a carry-on on the plane. I typically carry my laptop, iPad, binder, and sometimes even throw my purse in there, and it all fits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nanabird Almost perfect except for?..
I absolutely love these totes! They are just right for so many
purposes. I especially love them to welcome a new baby. My only two complaints are that the colors shown are almost never all available and the lack of pockets. A pocket on the front and three on each inside wall would make the tote perfect! Hope you are listening! It is also annoying because different size bags are offered in different colors. Still, the totes are durable, useful and they always look great. As a gift, they are very well received especially when monogramed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by i5landgirl Perfect Beach Bag!
This is the PERFECT beach bag for two adults! After reading through most of the reviews, I decided to order the large tote with long handles. I had a hard time deciding on whether to choose the regular or long handles but am glad that I chose the long handles, as they are the perfect length for carrying this bag over your shoulder so that you can be hands free. An outer zip pocket and inner pocket would be a great addition to this bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SADO Need more XL colors!
I love these totes. I especially love the XL with the long handles and zip close. I use them for my kids/family for anything from overnights to beach days. I have started ordering them for friends as baby gifts BUT the XL totes only come in a few very masculine colors. Its very frustrating when I want to order softer colors or have other choices. Not sure why the smaller size has so many options but not the XL.
