Rated 3 out of 5 by BeanlessinBeaverton Best lunchbox ever!
Don't get me wrong. I really love the bag. Great material. Great quality. Great color. The size just leaves a little to be desired... I purchased a medium, and it's basically a glorified lunchbox. The straps are too short to wear it over your shoulder if you have anything more than a sweater on, and you won't be able to fit much in there besides a notebook, your wallet, and an apple.

This is my second Hunter's Tote bag in XL, it is a very functional and great all-purpose bag which I believe will hold up to its claimed rugged use. I look for bags that are waterproof or highly water resistant and this bag fits the bill perfectly with its thermoplastic interior coating - that works. I prefer the bag with the full-length zipper top as keeps items in and unwanted things out. The bag is roomy yet fairly compact and stands upright on its own.

This tote bag is made very well! It was bought to keep all our ping pong supplies. It works very well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DaveCT Great... but Medium should be called SMALL!
The bags are great. I originally purchased a L and XL. Very useful but even the large is a tad too big for everyday use. So I ordered the M but found it is TINY. It can hold a sandwich, soda, a t-shirt and maybe a softball. Not much else. It should be called S and LL Bean should add one in between and call that one M. (The existing medium is less than half the size of the large in volume -- someone wasn't paying attention when designing the lineup.) I'm returning the medium as I think it is too small to be useful.

I give a medium sized, zip top boat tote to every baby I give a gift to. For the latest baby I was attracted to the all black hunter's bag (to my surprise). So I had the little girl's monogram put on it in light pink and crossed my fingers. Her parent's LOVE it. I have given these as presents for years, and enjoy seeing them show up in Facebook pictures and in real life for up to a decade. They are great for a rugged diaper bag, then pre-school, and on family vacations each kid can pack their own, and is limited to that amount of "extra".

Rated 4 out of 5 by penguin2013 strong little bag
I was very pleased with this bag. Its material is strong and it is built well. I bought it to carry my exercise weights and it is perfect for the job. Only downside is that the zipper can be a little hard to get working, but maybe it will loosen up with use.

Just purchased my third large black tote--love the zip top. Love the monogram. Handles extreme weight; keeps its shape. Can set down on wet surface or in snow--items inside, especially on the bottom stay dry. Would love if LLBean added one or two pockets--glad to pay a little more for pocket(s). Or maybe sell separately several sizes of zipper packets out of same tote material--we could buy as needed to place inside our totes. Thanks LLBean for a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jess123 Great Bag, Bad Strap Length
I am so torn on this. I LOVE this bag. The color is great, the quality is great, the zipper is strong, and it has a great lining that makes it waterproof.
I have the large tote however, and the handles are just too short for it. The bag fits alot, which is awesome, but as a result, gets really heavy, and the short straps only allow for it to be carried by hand (versus on the shoulder.) If it had the longer straps it would be perfect, but i am contemplating switching to the boat and tote, which i think is inferior in a lot of ways, in order to get the all-important longer strap.

Great size, could be carried by man or woman but purchased for my husband to use as a "man purse". Would be awesome if it had some inside pockets!

I got the Black Tote in Medium. I love this tote! I got the Monogram, so it really makes the bag look uniquely mine. I carry this bag everywhere without worrying about the damage, smudge, etc. I love it. I've been looking for something like this. I highly recommend it.
