Rated 3 out of 5áby NorthwesternFamily STRAPS need Imporovement
I agree with several other reviewers... the STRAPS on this bag need a major overhaul.
#1) Straps are thin at the top, which makes no sense. This is a bag meant to carry A LOT of weight, and the tops of the straps are sewn together making them thinner, less sturdy & they dig into your shoulder uncomfortably. The thin straps seem inconsistent with the rest of the sturdy bag. The thin straps make it harder to grab the bag when you are in a rush or trying to retrieve the bag from behind your car seat.
#2) Straps are too long. Other reviewers said this & they are correct. If the straps were 1-2 inches shorter, it would be perfect.
I love the LL.Bean Boat & Tote Bags and wish that the straps on this Carryall Tote Bag were more similar to the thickness & length of the Boat & Tote handles.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Bean1013 Tote
This tote falls short on three points. 1- No shoulder strap. 2- No sleeve to slide tote over handle of carry on luggage. 3- material is flimsy.
I have a better tote that needs repair. I thought the LL Bean tote would be a good replacement. Not so. I plan to have my old tote repaired and 'retire' the LL bean tote because of the three deficiencies noted above.
Overall I am a loyal LL Bean customer and have been so for decades.

Rated 5 out of 5áby dbme Great all purpose bag
My very old cloth gym bag was faded and worn and my wife kept encouraging (nagging) me to replace it. I use it daily in the summer for going to the pool in our community. I finally decided to buy a new bag that would let me organize things I take to the pool, Kindle, tan lotion, iPhone, car keys, snacks, etc. without having to rummage around for them. This Carryall Tote bag is the perfect solution. Lots of pockets and compartments for everything including two towels. I also like the ability to carry over the shoulder. It is also very attractive and well made. When searching on line for a new bag I did not consider a tote bag but I am glad I discovered this on the L L Bean site.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BuzzyOzSpice The perfect GO BAG!
The hardest part about shopping at LLBean is the choices!
I was looking for what I call a "Go Bag", meaning a bag that looks sharp, is durable and most important FUNCTIONAL, I found this bag. Its the perfect bag to grab and go, no fuss, no muss.
It is large enough to stuff, or have room to spare. It looks great, easy to clean, comfortable to carry-basically a great bag! I love it and highly recommend it to anybody.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Mee3 Tough Material, will last as long as I do!!
I was happily delighted when I opened the box, Love the color,the side pockets,2,One net for my water bottle,so it won't dribble on my phone or tablet.One for an extra bottle or sunglasses or passport.The inside is so humungus, that I will be able to pack My emergency vacation clothes. Bathing suit extra T shirt shorts socks flip flops Ipad. Snacks for plane ride. And soft enough to squish under seat. And absolutely Frivolously I love the monogramming I had put on the front.It's in the same color ( Purple) as the bag so you hardly notice it. Just a little extra security for identification!! Buy it You'll love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby LLERI98 Great Bag!
This is exactly what I needed, not too big and not too small. It is sturdy and I love the color blue. It has just enough compartments and is weather resistant. I would highly reccomend this item.

Rated 4 out of 5áby NebraskaTraveler Tough, roomy and light-weight!
I bought this bag to replace a worn-out tote bag I use for the miscellaneous gear I travel with such as books, iPad, camera, phone, snacks, sunglasses, etc. I took the bag on two recent trips involving both air travel and long drives, and it was perfect for stuffing under an airplane seat while holding all I needed. The many pockets make it an improvement over my old tote bag for keeping organized. My one disappointment is the key clip is made of plastic and is so stiff I can't hold it open with one hand so I can slip keys into the clip. It's so nice not to have to dig around for your keys when you leave an airport, so this really is disappointing. For a few extra cents I'm guessing a good quality clip--to match the quality of the bag--could have been used. My rating would be five stars with a good clip; still, I recommend this bag highly!

Rated 4 out of 5áby spraggs nice size
I was looking for something to use as a carry on when I fly and I think this will do great. The only issue I have is that I splurged for the monogram so that it would be easier to identify and was disappointed. The size of the letter is so small that I would never see it and wish I hadn't spent the extra money. The bag should be great though.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BriansReviews Perfect Bag
I tried several options before I found this bag. It's very roomy with compartments to store smaller items. It can be used as an over-night bag or as a briefcase capable of carrying a laptop, books, and documents. I'd recommend it for anyone who is looking for a casual, multipurpose tote bag.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CinBen Good Looking and Tough
I purchased this bag to carry odds and ends back and forth from the stable where I ride. The long handles make carrying the bag when my arms are full of tack extremely manageable. I don't have to worry about this bag getting dirty or not being able to take the abuse, especially from the barn cats that seem to find exploring the bag's contents irresistable :-) If I have a complaint with this bag, it's that I wish it came in a larger size, with LOTS of pockets.
