Rated 5 out of 5 by Tastebuds Lives up to its 5 star rating
With heavy use every day this has really exceeded my expectations. LL Bean hits a home run with this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CJPPhotos LOVE this bag!
I've had my messenger bag for about three months now. The bag looks much more professional then carrying by old backpack and it holds everything I carry quite snugly. My iPad fits nicely in the cushioned zippered area where a laptop would go; and I love the easy access to the outside zippered pocket. All in all this bag is a fantastic investment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CanadaDame not well designed
The padded shoulder support does not "float" on the strap but instead is sewn on. The effect is that you cannot shorten the shoulder strap. For smaller people, this means the bag hangs way below the comfort zone on the hip. As well, the top handle is too small for the bag, so you really cannot carry it by the top handle. The top handle needs to be much wider. Lastly, there is no back "pouch" area so that you can put the bag over the handle of rolling luggage. Bad design. I returned it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WVuser OK, but too big for me
I ordered this to carry my 13" MacBookPro, accessories and papers. I was hoping to replace my LLBean backpack with something smaller, with less stuff hanging off of it. This bag is just as large as the backpack and does not have enough pockets for papers and securable pouches for my use. It was much too large to safely carry the laptop as well. I returned it and will continue to use the backpack which should last for many years. I am still on the search for a smaller messenger bag suitable for a 13" laptop.

On the whole it is fine, but I find it a bit too wide. There are definitely enough pockets to put all my stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lmwest Nice bag
First off, it is a good bit larger than I expected. More than enough room for my computer and a few files. This could be used as an overnight bag easily.

This bag meets my needs. It's lite, seems to be durable, has adequate space for storage of my 15.6 inch laptop and all the extra items I need to carry. It's very comfortable whether carried over my shoulder or using the handle grip. The lumbar pads are comfortable and the external net pouches are convenient for quick and easy access. I was very satisfied with LLBean service and very pleased with the time it took to receive the item.

The bag is great with alot of pockets and dividers. My only complaint is that the bag must be clipped closed every time you pick it up or the contents can fall out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ZENITH15 My new briefcase
I bought this bag to replace my 20+ year old briefcase and I'm totally satisfied with it. The bag is a perfect size, lightweight, fits a lot of stuff and is very well made. Lots of compliments - I bought it in black/gray. It also has a padded sleeve for carrying a laptop and will be one of my carryons for future plane trips.
