Rated 5 out of 5 by TVless The Magic Bag
Do you remember Mary Poppins' bag? Well, that's what this one is - magic. You keep putting stuff in and it never fills up. I've told this to others and they laugh then they borrowed my bag. They don't laugh anymore.
This is the best carryon bag hands down. I take this bag whenever I fly - to visit my mom for a long weekend or 4 day business trip. I can fit all my clothes, toiletries, and even an extra pair of shoes with room left over. I'm not kidding! Lots of pockets and a size and shape that is easy to carry. It fits under the seat instead of in the overhead bin easily.
I actually purchased this one for my mom so she could have her own magic bag because I can't part with mine.

I haven't used this bag yet, however, when I looked it over I can tell the bag is very well made and will provide many years of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EdLev Far exceeded expectations!
This Quickload Carry-on Bag--small, light, foldable--holds more stuff than luggage twice its size! Even full, it fits under the seat in front of you. In addition, the shoulder strap is sensational.
This is one piece of luggage no traveler should go without. It's capacity, structure, endless pockets, and quality construction make this a truly incredible necessity.

The Quickload Carry-On holds more than I expected but fits comfortably under an airline seat. The quality of construction and features are excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by oldbrewertonian Seemed like a good idea
I usually use a small black backpack for under-the-seat carry on. This bag looked better in the description, but turned out to be much smaller, more like an old train case crossed with a cooler bag. Very well made, lots of pockets, nice carrying strap, but way too small for my usual little laptop, camera, chargers and other stuff I don't trust to luggage handlers. It would be nice for a child. I returned it yesterday and was glad we have an LLBean store in the area.

by RustysMom2 A great carry-on, wonderful mulit-purpose bag.
This is actually my second review, after much traveling with this bag.
We received the blue one when we got the Quickload luggage set (which I love) several years ago and since then I have considered buying an additional carry-on bag. I ordered the orange (my partner definitely wants to stick with the blue one!) and love it. I was a little surprised that much of the trim and all the lining are bright yellow rather than the gray that is shown in the catalog, but I know those things change. The yellow lining will ensure we are each always in the "right" bag.
I have never used this bag for much in the way of clothes. It holds my electronics, 7-inch tablet, camera, battery chargers, paperback(s), meds, toiletries, misc things I forget to pack elsewhere, spare glasses case, snacks, art supplies, and more, all at once! The large interior pockets keep things in some semblance of order and the outside pockets are handy for things I want to get to quickly. I appreciate that one side pocket has organizers for pens, cards, phone, etc, while the other holds a paperback or bird guide just fine. I do wish at least one end pocket was more secure for a water bottle, but I use the gossetted end pockets for a variety of things I pack at the last minute. The"insulated" top pocket is great for snacks, esp to have them in easy reach on a plane. We have taken our blue one on several flights, on car-camping trips and weekends away at motels. Since I have tended to monopolize it, I decided to finally get a second one.
This bag is extremely useful in all those circumstances. On road trips, it is the bag that holds the things I want to access quickly and I keep it handy on the floor behind my seat. Well made, holds much more than it looks like it will. One day I may just try packing some clothes in it for a weekend!

Has pockets for everything, including food area on top. The inside is roomy, lots of room for a book, a few magazines and I can stuff my purse inside too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eleadley Great diaper bag
Recommended to us by friends who use it as a diaper bag (for our new daughter Emma). Works great! Just the right size, plenty of pockets and is very rugged - exactly what you'd expect from an LL Bean bag.

I am pleased with the features of this bag. It is a good size, wide, and waterproof. I bought this as a gift and may get one for myself!

I purchased the Quickload Carry-On bag in navy (night) for a recent trip and it is the perfect size for a personal item. The plane was very small but the bag fit perfectly under the seat. I used the top zippered section for my small liquids so I would have easy access. In the main compartment, I was able to fit a change of clothes, shoes, sweater, hairdryer, Ipad, book, journal, some art supplies, and my camera. I used one zipped compartment for travel documents and pens and the two end compartments for drinks and snacks. There was still room to spare. The shoulder strap with the curved shoulder pad (once I figured out that the curved part should point towards my neck) made the bag feel weightless. I am very satisfied with my purchase. This bag is not pretty - it's rather masculine looking - but it is the most functional piece of luggage I own.
