Rated 5 out of 5 by ModeofTravel Better than expected
Great product all around. As the description says, the case nominal length is two inches shorter, so order a case at least two inches longer than the Bean nominal length. Contrary to other information, in my outer accessory pocket, there are six elastic loops for extra shells, and room left over for misc. items. Further, for those who want handles instead of a strap, there are three D rings on top of the case. Simple shorten the strap to the length you want for handles, connect it to the two closest D rings, and viola! Handles! Don't be put off. It's beautiful, nostalgic, functional, and enviable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EverythingOutdoors Great Case!
Classic looking and well made case. I wish LL Bean still offered a brass engraved name plate on them.
FYI, the second end of the zipper is tucked into the barrel end of the case when it ships. I was about ready to send it back until I found it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CNC9999 Works great
This shotgun case works great. I agree with the others that it runs a bit short compared to advertised length. After reading other reviews I went ahead and ordered the longest case available to be safe, it's not too long. The description mentions leather "handles" but this case doesn't have handles, it has a long sling strap...just something to be aware of, personally I would prefer handles but it still works good as is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GraniteMtn High quality gun case
This case is well made for the long haul. With the severe taper on the end, be sure to order the case size 2-3 inches longer than your shotgun. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because I would have preferred carry handles instead of a shoulder strap. From the leather accents to the soft, padded interior, however, the case is LL Bean high quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Buffolian Great looking case
Overall, the case looks great. The quality is apparent as soon as you take it out of the box; standard for LL Bean. The canvas looks to be durable, the leather of good quality, and the zipper does not look cheap.
The only reason it does not get a 5 star is because there is little information on the size of shotgun that would fit in the case. As a relative novice, and after not finding much information that anywhere on the web, I decided to purchase the 50" case for my Remington 870 Express. Sadly, the 50" was just too small and I had to send it back and get the next larger size.
The next size larger is back ordered until mid-June (I sent the smaller case back in early May), but as a testament to how great this case is I am happy to wait until they come in stock to get the correct size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WisconsinShooter Very nice
This is a very nice gun case. I agree with others about the length. I got a 50" case for my 46" shotgun and it fit with not a lot of room to spare.

Nice case well made. I bought the 52 inch to be on the safe side and was glad I did, good fit for 30 inch bbl o/u type guns. The zipper works well and seems strong, time will tell . I looked at simular cases but the guarantee was the selling point for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanShopper135 Short!
The Waxed Canvas Shotgun Case appears to be of good quality and will probably last forever. However I own a 48" shotgun and ordered a 50" case. I read reviews that the case was shorter but figured that 50" would do the job. The case turned out to be only 49" long and the leather loop and zipper design at the top of the bag ensured that my shotgun did not fit. This is why I give the bag 4 stars otherwise it is a 5 star bag. If you decide to purchase one I recommend ordering 2 or 3 sizes too big.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JBDouglas Impressive Case
My first hunting gear order and I am very pleased. Price was excellent with the free shipping offer. Much nicer than what I could buy locally of similar quality. Very well made. Classy look. A good look and fit for my Beretta Silver Pigeon. Side pocket is nice. My only (slightly) negative comment...wish it had regular carry handles to accompany the shoulder strap (like most other soft cases).

Rated 4 out of 5 by zwolf Waxed cotton shotgun case
Very good value for the money. Purchased for a new gun. Only problem is that it is not as long as advertised. Have another brand 52 inch that is longer and can accommodate a 32 inch browning with extended chokes. This one cannot. It will fit an over under with 30 inch barrels and no extended chokes. Bean should make this case longer. The competition's 32 inch is considerably longer hence four stars
