Rated 5 out of 5 by Scott3708 Great Day Bag
Awesome day bag perfect for overnight, carry on flying, camping, anywhere! The leak proof compartment is a great bonus for spilled shampoo or soap. Tons of zippered compartments and very well built. I would not hesitate to get larger ones for expedition travel. Thanks LL Bean, great quality! Will buy bigger to match for longer travel along with another one of these for myself as my wife won't give it back!

I finally have found the perfect carry-on bag. So many pockets to keep you organized. You can't see in the picture, but there are pockets on all 4 sides-inside and outside and a snack pocket on top. It is still small enough to fit under the plane seat. I loaded all my travel gear and have lots of room left for extra last minute items. Seems well constructed and the usual high quality Bean product. I also like the fact that the position of the zipper pulls will allow me to use a lock. Love my new bag!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Smalltowngal12 Quality bag.
A nice bag for traveling or just running around town or anything you need to tote around. The pocket in the top flat is lined and can hold (2) 16 oz bottles. It has 4 pockets inside, 3 mesh (2 width-wise and 1 length-wise) and 1 length-wise deep slip pocket. There is no Velcro or zippers on any of the inside pockets so they have a tendency to sag. Interior is medium gray. There is no hard bottom piece that you can fold up for storage so I put a piece of cardboard in it to help give more stability.
There are 4 outside pockets, 1 on each side, all zippered. The end pockets unzip the entire width of the bag and are gusseted on one side to the top of the pocket. Really nice! Both of the other 2 length-wise pockets have a lip over the zipper (which makes it harder to unzip) and unzip almost to the bottom which allows for easy access. They are both gusseted but only about 2" so items can easily fall out if completely unzipped. The front pocket (where the logo is) has a key fob, slip pocket and zippered mesh pocket that goes about half the length of the pocket and 3 pen holders beside those. The back pocket is just a plain pocket. My biggest disappointment is that it is too soft sided and wants to collapse when empty. I was hoping for something more stiff.
The over-the-shoulder strap pad does not slide on the strap and therefore, when you want to adjust it, it needs to be adjusted on both sides of the pad instead of just one and sliding the pad where you want it
I wish the description would at least tell you how many pockets there are both inside and out and if they are zippered, Velcro close, etc. The pictures in the dark colors make it hard to see the details.
After I got this bag I ordered the Carryall II Accessory Bag which I like better because it is stiffer sided even though it is a little smaller and has no inside pockets. I'm sending this bag back. It's a nice bag but not what I was wanting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MichiganCajun relatively small but holds a lot
I needed a small bag for a regional airline. This bag was perfect in that it held an ipad, book, dop kit, camera, cables, travel documents, and even a change of underwear. It has several compartments inside to organize your things as well as some external ones that I did not need to use.

When I first received this carry-on bag, I thought it was way too small. It looked like a lunch box rather than a travel bag. Was I wrong! This bag expands, stretches, and totes everything you could possible want to stuff into a carry-on bag. It fits perfectly into the overhead storage compartments. When my fellow travelers had to surrender their small rolling carry-on bags, I just smiled, and with my bag on my shoulder I breezed through the airports and onto the planes in numerous countries.
It holds a change of clothing, eyeglasses, sunglasses, Kindle, Kindle keyboard, soft drink, snacks, pens, travel journal, and small travel blanket with room leftover. So if you think that $69 is steep, or if you wonder whether or not this will meet your travel needs, rest assured. This bag works beautifully!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SisqB Better than my old bag!
I have an old carry-on bag purchased years ago from LL Bean that is definitely showing it's age, so I decided to get this one as a replacement. It's a great improvement over my old bag as it has a lot more pockets and compartments for stowing items. I especially like the small top compartment: the website suggests using it to store snacks or small food items since it is waterproof, but I like keeping our wallets in there for easy access. The bag is lightweight and the handles are very comfortable to carry, plus they are long enough to fit over the handle of my rolling carry-on suitcase. This is a perfect bag for any air traveler!

I just bought two of these Quick-Load Carry-on Bags- one for me and one for my wife.
We haven't used them yet- but plan to use them on an upcoming trip.
I researched many different small carry-on bags, but decided that this model fit our needs best in terms of size, cost and features. We don't like to have to deal with carrying too many things on the plane. So, we figure we can each carry one of these bags and one personal item each- me my camera bag and she can carry her purse. The other bags will be checked. When the plane lands we just want to get off without fussing with a lot of luggage.
Let you know how they work out later.

I fell in love with this bag the moment I saw it. It is of excellent quality and so convenient; pockets for food, makeup, writing material, and though it is small enough for a carry-on, it is spacious inside. The colors, I got a blue color with a grey color for edging are attractive. The material is waterproof and easily washable. It has two seperate straps, a short one and a long one. For the money, this is a great bag. I love it.

I purchased this carry on to go with a couple of other pieces I have of this luggage and I just love it. The whole set is very durable, packs easily with great compartments and should last for many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by getaway1 great for having food, especially on plane.
The food storage unit is located on the top of the bag so even under the seat in front of you, it provides easy access to your own snack! Pockets of different size grant you the freedom to pick and choose where to put items. The long shoulder strap is adjustable and the shorter handles fit over the handle of my suitcase. I know it will be durable because it's Llbean!
