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 NaniO Perfect family bag
I recently bought the boat and tote in the extra large, with long handles, and monogrammed in red. It's a great bag. The red monogramming matches beautifully with the red on the bag and it's surprisingly lightweight for a bag of it's size. The long handles make it comfortable to carry. This is perfect for a long day at the beach and will be great for family vacations. This is my first boat and tote and I'm sure I'll be buying more for the family.

Great bag. Very ugly monogram! Bring back the matching thread for a better visual appearance!!!!!!! I paid extra for a monogram I ripped out. The straps are the new green and the lettering was dark green!
Ugly, ugly, ugly! I would fire the design team who came up with this
Cost cutting measure! I will not purchase anymore bags with this misbegotten notion of mis matched color way! Debi

Rated 4 out of 5 by beachesandlakes Ember color is more like Bright Pink Coral
I probably have 10 of these bags in different sizes bought at different times over the past 30 years. I use the medium sized ones practically daily for groceries.
The bag is of course sturdy, well made and very nice. The color is pretty, just not what I expected when I ordered. From the website I thought Ember was going to be orange. When I pulled it out of the package I was disappointed. It's a very feminine Bright Pink Coral.
Also, the monogram in Salmon is far too pale to go with the bright pink. You can't see it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CanadaBeanShopper Great bag!
This bag is excellent and a must have for a large family. I got the extra large to use as a swim bag this summer. It's a great size and will hold everyone's towels and swimming things. The quality is excellent, I love how it is made in Maine. I was so impressed I ordered 4 more, 2 as gifts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MeowMedic Small boat tote bag
I love the quality of this tote and the size in small, since I plan to use it as a summer handbag. HOWEVER........someone really needs to take this one back to the drawing board on design. Why on earth would you put the colored handle on the top and natural color canvas on the under side that will be in constant contact with body oils, skin lotions, and or any other substance that we may touch during the day???????? I thought about this before ordering, and will treat it with scotch guard, but will probably put fabric paint on the under side handle, to keep it from looking so disgusting. Great bag for the price hands down, but please think this one through if you're a busy mom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CapeCodMomof4 Amazing!
I have owned many Bean Boat & Tote bags through the years, and they last forever. The quality is outstanding, and that's no surprise. However, the thing that continues to amaze me about L.L. Bean is their service. I ordered my latest bag on Tuesday evening, and it arrived (beautifully monogrammed) on Friday morning. I just loaded it up with the kids' beach gear, and we're off to the beach! Amazing service. Thank you, L.L. Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HigginsLake Can you ever have too many?? Nope!
The only real boat & tote bag. I inherited some from my parents that are at least 40 years old and have at least 15 "new" ones. I hope some of the great colors come back - Wild Berry, Glen Green, etc. - but I buy at least one a year for myself and give as gifts for friends. I use the small as a handbag and the older ones for storage - so much better looking than those plastic tubs . . .

Rated 4 out of 5 by VLMAY Salmon Thread Color: Beware
I ordered the bag in Ember and got it monogrammed. The monogram thread color (Salmon) is MUCH too light for the bag and looks strange with the Ember color. It really does not look good. The bag itself and the Ember color are wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Judyxteach Great gift idea
I have given at least 10 large totes personalized as baby gifts....everyone loves them! the quality is top notch and the tote is so practical. It holds so many items and is great for sleepovers.
For Christmas I bought 7 small totes for friends...great to carry to the pool or even to hold coupons.
