Rated 5 out of 5 by FatherFitz Carry-On carries all I need
I commute to work each day by bus. I used a back pack previoiusly, and before that, a messenger style bag. Neither really satisfied my purposes. I pack my lunch and a thermos for coffee. I have a variety of things I like to have with me every day. This bag is great. It has side pockets with zippers for places to tuck things, end pockets where more stuff can be stored. Inside are nice pockets on each side. Plus there is plenty of room to spare. There is plenty of room for my needs. I think it will double as a great carry on bag when I travel. I chose the green bag with orange trim. It looks good. The shoulder strap keeps the bag in place, but it also has shorter handles for a quick grab and go... And it has already proven to be sturdy. My dog dragged it off the table and managed to get into the candy I had inside... but he did not rip or ruin it in any way (much to my relief)

It holds a lot of things and fits under the airline seat in front. The multiple compartments help to organize your stuff and make access easier. I used the plastic-lined food pocket on top to keep items I needed handy, such as my headphones and music player. The bag held my 10" tablet in its case as well as my toiletry bag and nylon jacket, among other things. I had room for a charger, batteries, note paper and some clothes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LivinLovinBeans Great bag for totin' toiletries
I've discovered, as I age, the need for space, to accommodate medicines, ointments and toiletries, to grow. My old ditty bag did the trick for so many years till my need for space out grew the bag. This new bag hits the spot. It's stable does not roll, fall off the counter or make accessing a challenge. It's all in front of you and easy to access. If you are like me and need a bag for a full shaving cream can, shampoo, razor etc. This is the bag for you. Easy to handle and convenient for travel.

I bought this bag for a little bit of a different purpose than most, as a trumpet mute bag. For this, it is great. I am able to hold enough mutes for your typical musical including a Derby. It has several different pockets as well for your pencil, oil, grease etc. So, if anyone is looking for a great mute bag, look no further.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FlyingDuck Perfect Carry-On Bag
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!
