Rated 2 out of 5 by abcdef123 VERY LARGE and STIFF
I made a mistake ordering the large bag. It looks huge because it is so stiff. The fabric in my mind could be softer and pliable. Very unhappy with purchase but it would be too expensive to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DavidinKansas Top notch tote
The extra large tote is perfect for the big trip to the grocery store. I was able to fit more than 20 items into the bag. It beats carrying four or five of the smaller, flimsy bags the stores want to sell you for 99 cents. You get what you pay for, and the LL Bean tote is more than worth the investment. I've ditched all of those little bags and will be using my extra large tote all the time, and I just ordered a large tote. LL Bean comes through again.

There's no way to leave a review on the custom tote bag page. Please fix that. I bought two bags that I designed about 3 years ago. One was xlarge white canvas with a zipper top, blue handles, orange pockets (Broncos' colors!). The other is a large, dark blue bag with green handles and a pink pocket. Both arrived quickly. The quality was evident.
After three years, they both still look great. The smaller one is used daily. it's been on planes, trains, boats, cars, etc. and is usually packed to the hilt. While the canvas has softened a little, the seams are still intact. I love these bags and may order another one just for variety.
Thanks for keeping your standards high, L.L. Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TootyTa Reviewing custom made boat and tote size medium
I am reviewing the custom made boat tote size medium with a zip top, pocket, regular handles with monogram. There was no place to submit a review for this product, so I will do so here.
My honey and I designed his birthday tote on Sunday. I unwrapped the package on Friday! This is CRAZY! I expected to get this custom made tote just in time for his birthday on 5/20! This tote is incredible. The materials and workmanship are just top notch. Absolutely perfect. I have been using these totes for my entire lifetime and there are none better -- none that even come close to this quality, in fact! Highly recommended! Thank you, once again, LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by texashayseed Perfect tote for the office
I wanted something other than a traditional briefcase for work and this bag was featured in the movie Marley and Me when Jen went to the airport. I got the longer handles and had it monogrammed - I love it and will enjoy carrying to and fro work.

Just buy the bag. It is perfect. I have loved using this (large, open top, dark green with monogram) tote SO much. Extremely sturdy. I threw it in the washer and it came out completely fine. It has been everywhere with me and can hold a surprisingly large amount of weight (I use for textbooks occasionally).
Beautiful bag that I know I will have for many many years to come- or until I have to change my monogram. You will not be disappointed.

I usually order the large no zip, for new moms, monogrammed, with baby's name. I think you always need another bag, no matter that you carry your diaper bag, there is so much else to bring along. So far all the mom's I've given one to, have told me over and over again that they are using it along with their diaper bag, and when you don't need that any longer, you use it to take things along with you to Grandma's place or the overnight sitter's house, and on and on. Great quality, lovely presentation for the parents. Highly recommend this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLMommy Everything I hoped for
I wanted to purchase a bag to take to the beach. I was debating between the large and extra large with handle. I did an online chat with a rep and he guided me through the details. I ordered the large and so glad I did ! It is the perfect size for a day trip to the beach. I think the extra large would've been too big for my needs. I love the long handles ! The material is really heavy and sturdy. I would recommend this to anyone ! Once again, you never fail to disappoint me LLBean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by thewade Small vs. Medium Boat & Tote
These are great bags and well constructed.
I originally purchased the medium bag to coordinate with my oldest son's basketball team colors. The medium allowed me to tote home school books and all sorts of items I could use to keep me busy while waiting between games. And the medium worked great for that, toting large books.
My youngest son participates at a different school so that means new bag with new colors. I decided to go for the small bag. Its great for holding paper back books, but not large home school books. I mainly use it as a large purse. I do wish I had gotten the medium for large books, cameras (SLR types), water bottles, etc. Either way I'll make it work, or I may wait for a sale, coupons, & some extra $$ and splurge and get a medium bag with blue colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mrg54 It's Beautiful
This was my first customized boat and tote bag. It came out exactly the way I ordered it and the colors were vivid. I have always appreciated the quality workmanship of LL Bean totes, but this time you went above and beyond your usual quality. It is also great that a tote can be made to my individual specifications. I must also say that the shipping time was excellent considering the weather all over the country, especially on the eastern seaboard and New England. Thanks again for a job well done.
