Rated 4 out of 5 by 2annoyed Good with reservations
While I definitely like this bag, and it does hold quite a lot for its size,
the mesh pocket on the side does NOT hold water bottles securely.
On my last 2 trips the water bottle fell out somewhere and was lost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaynet Carry All Tote Bag - Fantastic
I love this bag! I bought it in black so it goes with everything and even the men in my family don't mind carrying it. The straps are the perfect length for carrying on my shoulder and I love that it has a side pocket for a water bottle. It's great for an extra bag when traveling plus it zips closed for added security. I will probably buy another one because it is so useful and a great size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FiberArts My second purchase of this item
This was my favorite tote for work, then I had to let someone else use it for work and they liked it so much I let them keep it and ordered another. This time I had is monogrammed so perhaps I can keep this one. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 Very Nice Bag
The bag was even better than expected as LL Bean does not show the other side of it where there is a large velcro closed pocket on the outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JHolecek Extraordinarily Useful!
I've been looking for a tote bag that would allow me to segregate all the various items I take to the gym. I was hugely impressed by the number of compartments, pouches, etc. that this bag incorporates. Gone are the days of rummaging blindly through my gym bag for what I need. The workmanship, as is always true with LL Bean products, is superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogmomEdM Just what I needed
I'm a teacher, and typically carry way too much stuff between school and home. This bag is just what I'd hoped it would be, and a good value too. There's plenty of room inside for all of my folders and books; the additional pockets help keep smaller items organized. If I don't completely fill this bag, there's room for my handbag too. The color I chose (purple) is more maroon than I expected it would be, but I'm fine with it. The length of the straps is just right for carrying over the shoulder.

I expected wonderful....and I got it! Roomy but not too big. Beautiful but definitely rugged. Lightweight but sturdy. Perfect for my trip by plane, train and automobile!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MEvacationer Great Bag, would like light colored interior
I bought this bag because I have the identical bag in the aqua pattern. I use my aqua bag to hold my knitting -- best knitting bag I've ever had. I also use it whenever I have to carry things to meetings, or go on trips. The green bag is also great, but I would like to have a light interior so I can more easily find things in it. Very much recommend this bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 Best bag for traveling
This bag was everything I'd hope for. Super roomy as a carry-on when traveling. Wonderful side pockets for water, or an umbrella. Roomy front pockets for magazines, etc.. and Nice long straps to carry on shoulder. The strap on the back was perfect for slipping on top of your wheelie suitcase. I'd definitely but another one for day to day toting. It also fit easily in the overhead bin from small to large aircraft and could (depending how full it is) fit under the front seat.
