Rated 5 out of 5 by micheled This is the best tote EVER!!!
Who ever thought I would be so crazy for a piece of luggage! This tote is EXACTLY what I have been looking for. I carry it in addition to my carry-on suitcase. It is the perfect size to carry everything I need for local and international flights: I can even slip my purse inside. I am thrilled that the top zips closed, securing everything inside, when I store it under the airline seat in front of me. I love the zip down front: I can easily access my personal items during the flight without having to unzip the top. My ipad, magazines, lotion, water and snax are all within easy reach: a big bonus when on a cramped overnight international flight. I love that the tote slips easily over the handle of my carry-on suitcase. Makes trudging through airports much easier. The fabric of the tote is very durable. I won't be afraid to hurt it when I use it to prop up my feet during a flight. I ordered the plum color...beautiful. Love it! It is great that I can fold it flat when we arrive at our destination and unpack. I can't say enough positive things about this tote. Thank you for making such a great product!!! Love it , love it, love it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 Very Nice, but would love one change
Love the handle length, love the light weight and how it gets small when you don't have much in but can expand, expand for extra things. With those long handles I can fill it up and then add my coat and scarves across the top as I walk to my car. :)
I use the net pouch on the side for my car keys because it is too short to hold a biking water bottle in through the ups and downs of wearing the bag. I would love for there to be some type of additional water bottle carrier. I am thinking I may make myself another little pouch that sits inside of the large single outside pocket for just this purpose. I carry lots of water, and then empty water bottles back home. I like them to stand up and down and not fall over in my bag and make a mess if they get uncapped.
This is my only complaint. LOVE love the quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KWLl Long handles are the best feature for work bag
Great purchase for a work bag. Perfect size for carrying documents and gym clothes and sneakers. Just enough compartments. The feature I like the most is that it has the long handles like the boat and tote bags. Because the bag hangs lower than a regular tote, it is more comfortable to carry and doesnt get in the way on crowded trains and subways. Also, the dark colors make it more appropriate to carry to work in the city,as opposed to the regular totes which look like weekend bags because of the light colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlessedGal Wonderful tote!
We got a black one for our college-aged daughter, and she loves it. After seeing hers, I ordered the green one for me. It's sturdy and lightweight, well-made with straps that are a good length for shoulder carrying. I like the padded bottom which gives it good support. Carries a lot!
I like the organizer pockets; this bag has several--a small zipped one inside the main compartment, a purse-like outside zipped organizer with key clip, two zipped inner pockets, and three pen/pencil slots. There's another zipped, gusseted pocket on the outside end of the bag.
As other users have commented, I wish the net pocket on the outside was taller; it doesn't carry my water bottle well. But other than that, it was a great purchase and will be my go-to bag for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sasquatch1 great bag!
I bought this bag for my daughter and she really likes it. It met all her requirements - sturdy, big, zippered, long straps. Plus it has several extra pockets inside and out. So far it has served as the family swim bag, but they live on the coast so I think it will also serve as the family beach bag. Having her initials on it was a nice bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BJtraveler Awesome Tote
This is an awesome tote bag for flying. The handles are long enough to stay on my shoulder and for wrapping around my luggage pull handle to give my shoulder a break. Lots of room inside with 1 compartment and 3 compartments on the outside plus a bottle holder. I thought the initials I chose for the outside of the bag would be larger, but not really a concern.

Rated 2 out of 5 by HolleyA Not What I Expected
After reading reviews and owning a few LL Bean bags, I was very surprised when I opened the package. The Carryall Tote is made of a very thin canvas with flimsy straps! Not what I expected. I was expecting for the quality of the Carryall to be on part with the larger diaper bag by Bean, but instead the Carryall is actually more like a large, heavily pocketed reusable grocery bag. And I actually feel bad for typing that since I love everything Bean. I guess this bag just missed the mark.
BUT if you'really looking for a reusable grocery bag with extra pockets, thenjoy this would be a great bag.
Unfortunately, mine will be returned.
