Rated 5 out of 5áby Ninochka2 Large, sturdy, lightweight
Both my husband and I are very happy with this cooler. I like the thick strap and the fact that it has a padding that feels better on the shoulder than just a bare strap. My husband likes the the shorter straps to carry it by hand. This cooler is deeper than any we had before, yet about the same size overall. Plenty of side pockets for utensils, napkins, etc. We picked the lime-like green color to match a lunchbox size that we got from L.L.Bean and have been happy with also.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Country75 Waterproof,easy to use
Use item for 13 days immediately after purchase. NO leaks. Easy to carry. I would like to recognize a customer service person for above and beyond assistance when I lost my LL Bean credit card after leaving your Freeport Me. store. How can I do that?

Rated 5 out of 5áby nurse2knitter Great Cooler
I love this cooler! Have the personal size for work and needed a bit larger for travel. This one fills the bill perfectly and even after 2 days my food was still ok. I like the reinforced shoulder strap too. Highly recommend this cooler.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CostalGal Perfect for the pumping mom!
This cooler has worked great since I've returned to work and need to schlep all my pumping supplies to continue nursing my baby - it's become my new "purse". It is comfy to carry by the handles or shoulder strap, even when full of equipment. The main compartment fits my medela pump-in-style, an ice pack, 6 (or more) 4 oz bottles, pumping bottles and flanges no problem, with room to spare for a bag of nursing cookies and a frozen lunch. The mesh pocket on top interior is perfect for coiling up the pump tubing. I keep the pump manual and some extra membranes in the outer lid compartment. I use one side mesh pocket for medela pump-cleaning wipes, the power cord, and a battery adapter pack. The other side mesh pocket has my keys, chapstick, sun glasses, work ID, cell phone, and I've even fit a nalgene or water bottle in there too. In the front outside pocket I fit my planner, wallet (the big mom style with the checkbook included!), and hands-free pumping bra. The tall mesh pocket on the back works for mail or other documents I need to bring back and forth from work and home. I know most people looking to buy this won't be using it as I am, but if you know a pumping mom or are going to a baby shower, keep this in mind!

Totally functional, and well made. It was just what I needed, and serves me well. Also, the color is great.

Rated 3 out of 5áby DelawarePete Lacks organizational compartments
The bag is big. Definitely good to carry my many food items that I eat during my work day. However, there is no organization in the pockets. My $15 soft cooler I purchased a few years ago had these compartments in the pockets so I can separate my utensils, napkins, ketchup packets, sugar, salt and pepper. It is all pretty much dumped into the main front pocket leaving you digging around for what you want. (Annoying!)
There is another pocket on the top flap. The zipper for that pocket is located toward the back of the coolers flap (by the hinged part). My issue with that is usually you would have the cooler facing you when you are using it. If you need something from the top pocket you have two options. One, you either have to lift the cooler and spin it around 180 degrees or two, you have to push the top flap into the cooler so the contents don't spill out will rummaging through the pocket (again no organization) while looking for whatever it is you have in the pocket.
The bag is okay, but for the price I would expect better thought behind the build plan. An admin pocket would be great to give it some organiztion.
Hello LLBean - Do you hear me?!!!
That would pretty much complete it. Oh, by the way, a thick rubber bottom would be good add on. Sometimes the cooler may sit on top of concrete or asphalt. The rubber would protect the bottom from scrap or ,heaven forbid, a possible tear.
Also, you guys could expand the color options.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Ilvtaz Love it
I work weird hours so I need to bring both lunch and dinner with me. First day I used it, of course I had to test it out. I put 3 big ice packs in it and 2 frozen dinners, a few sodas and waters at 8am and at 4pm and 1 was still frozen and the other thawed a little bit. At 9pm the ice packs were still frozen. I have an hour commute so I need my meals to stay cold or frozen. This cooler definitely does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5áby WelshTerrierFan Great for car or beach!!
I love these bags, I have the smaller one, too. I use them traveling in the car, just right for snacks etc. I used the smaller one to carry ice and juice boxes etc. for the beach. The larger one holds a lot. Too heavy for me to carry to beach, however; fine for my husband. Great bags!! And like all of LLBean bags, they are very durable.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Momofthezoo Excellent Cooler
I was a little hesitant to spend so much money on a cooler, but this cooler is worth it! I've used it twice now while traveling with my family. I put a large ice pack in it early in the afternoon and the next morning the ice pack was still partially frozen. All the food was cool. This last time I traveled I forgot that the cooler was still in the car when we got home. I had put a sandwich bag of ice cubes in it early in the afternoon. I retrieved the cooler from my hot car (end of July in MA) around 9 pm.some of the ice cubes were still frozen. I like this cooler so much I just ordered the personal cooler for my lunches.
