Rated 5 out of 5 by bunchen Great Bag!
I bought this bag in size 'medium' and it's absolutely fantastic for my coastal fishing gear. It easily holds 4 or 5 3500-series Plano lure boxes, an extra spinning reel and spool, as well as my flourocarbon, rubber beads and all 'the small stuff' - hooks, swivels, snaps etc...
The zippered top keeps the bugs and critters out and when it rains, keeps my lunch protected and my gear dry.
Suggestion for the next generation bags: An expandable/pleated pocket with a slightly oversized rain flap (& snap closure) would be nice to have at the end of the bag, especially if it's located directly under the zipper (not plastered on the side) for pliers, hemostat clamp, and other small tools.
It'd also benefit from a couple of additional 'D' rings for an optional shoulder strap or for tying things on.
But, as I use it today, it's absolutely great - I wish I could afford a spare.
I mistakenly wrote this review on the 'Open-Top' bag webpage, and for this I apologize. An open-top bag would never suit my needs, nor can I really understand the point of having a waterproof bag which is open at the top? My ordinary Boat & Tote canvas classics occasionally see a folded plastic bag lining the bottom when they're sat on wet ground. If it rains, I drape a folded plastic bag across the top and I guess I'd need to do the same for the open-top hunter's bag. I just can't see the point...

Rated 5 out of 5 by DSalz LOVE THIS TOTE!
I am so happy with my purchase of the Hunter's Tote Bag! I had been eyeing it for months and finally I pulled the trigger! At first I was indecisive about what size to get, either Medium or Large. I live in NYC and I have seen several people on the streets with the bag and tried to scope out their size. I chose the Medium and it's perfect for everyday, wear to work, travel, etc. I am 5'3 so I decided that the large would've been extremely large to use as an everyday bag. I chose the ziptop for extra security option but the top easily folds down if you leave it open. I also got a monogram letter which gives a girlie touch to the bag :) Definitely recommend. Also matches great with my boat & tote bag which I have the camo accents.

Rated 1 out of 5 by llcc99 product dimensions are WAY off
this bag is massive and there is really no time or place to carry it. in addition to being oversized, the handles are not meant to be carried over the shoulder. i checked time and time again thinking I had been shipped the XL in error, but I think the product dimensions on the site are just incorrect. needless to say, i returned this awful bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Howardcountymom Almost Perfect - missing long handles
Where are the long handles? This would have gotten 5 stars if it hand a long handle option and an inside zip pocket for keys and cell phone. Try carrying duck decoys with a short handle...doesn't work.

I use this bag daily to throw stuff into at the last minute on my way to and from work
I like that it stands up well and has a wide opening to throw things in
I don't use the zipper much but like that it is there
It is sturdy and of excellent quality
While it is a bit more masculine than other similar options--it still functions essentially as a purse! Practicality and functionality is the thing though so I don't mind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by starchamp Would love another, though with a few changes!
There are so many great things about this bag! Sturdy, waterproof and a great size (I went with the large, perfect for swim gear for 2 kids). But, as others have said, I would love if the straps were just a couple of inches longer so you could throw it over your shoulder easily, and an interior zipper pocket for keys & phone seems strangely lacking. If those things are added to a future version I will be ordering another!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sttaff durable and good looking
I've had my large tote for almost four years to use to carry all my dog's gear back and forth to her school every week. It has taken a beating and still looks like new. The most durable tote around. And the lining makes it easy to keep clean. I recently bought one for a friend as a gear bag for her young pup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by petranella VERY HAPPY WITH PURCHASE
This is the second tote I have purchased. The first one is well over 10 years old. It has come in very handy and shows no sign of wear.
Unlike the name implies I do not use it for hunting but for normal use for shopping and running errands. I had purchased the olive green one because it was the most conservative option at the time.
I was thrilled to finally find that it was available in black.
It is wonderfully strong, and the water proof feature is really a blessing when the weather is unpleasant, it also makes toting groceries less of a hassle with the water proof lining. One more thing, I was happy to find that the quality of the new tote has remained high.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CityRoamer It. Just. Works.
The tote is a totally LLBean product: well made, well engineered, good looking, and long lasting. Glad I bought it.
