Rated 5 out of 5 by MadMax6 Excellent blind bag
LL Bean nailed it with this blind bag. Not only is it rugged, but it comes in below most other competitors in price. I would say it's the perfect size for waterfowlers. It gives me room to store all of the little things I like to bring with me all in one bag. The main compartment routinely holds 1 or 2 pairs of gloves, a hat, snacks/lunch, 2 bottles of gatorade/water, jerk rig, 2 boxes of shells and whatever else I toss in it that day. The outer pockets hold my smaller items like knives, flashlights, first aid items and other hunting gadgets. The slim pocket on the back holds my law book and waterfowl laws in a ziplock for quick reference.
The shell is definitely water resistant, wouldn't call it waterproof but it keeps out water very well. I may try and add some spray on waterproofer to get some extra protection from the wet dog. Zippers are wicked rugged, no problems there. Plastic bottom is essential for waterfowlers and the rigged structure of the bag makes it easy to grab stuff. Outer pockets give plenty of extra room, although a few more organizer pockets within them would be nice.
All in all this bag is a home run at the price and the quality. It's why LL Bean is where they are today, QUALITY PRODUCTS at a fair price.

A must have for every waterfowl hunter. I chose this bag because of L.L.Bean quality. The Flyway II Blind Bag will keep your gear dry, will not sag and it's a pleasure to carry to the blind. I'm glad I made this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MinnesotaWinter High Quality, Reasonable Price
I researched a lot of blind bags from different competitors, and of course, as usual, LL Bean both had the highest quality and best price for said quality.
I actually am going to use this for all my hunting needs, including predator and deer. It has a lot of really handy pockets, appears to be really well-made, and I love that it is weather-proof. The hard bottom is a nice features so it doesn't sag in the middle.

Outstanding bag. Have used it 2 years in both the blind and layout boat. Great size, holds everything I need with room to spare. Hard bottom is a must for keeping things dry and giving bag rigidity. I looked at many different bags and this one seemed most practical and of a size that was perfect for my needs. Contents of my bad yesterday in the boat: hat, two pair of gloves, 2 boxes of shells, 2 face masks, neck gator, small thermos, three calls, iPhone, headlamp, 3 granola bars, small first aid kit, small baggie w/ TP, small baggie w/ matches, pocket tool, and other misc things; hunting regs, ducks at a distance field guide, 6 packages of hand warmers. Could easily add a few more items.

I bought this bag for my husband for x-mas last year. He loved it, and he used it duck hunting several times. This bad performed so well. Everything stayed dry, the ipad, the lunch, gadgets and stuff, even in standing water conditions. Other hunters took notice and couldn't believe what a handy and practical bag this was. I am buying another one this year, for my son. Excellent product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by altaskibum Good bag
Haven't had it in a blind yet but it has everything I need to carry what I need for me and my dog. Plenty of room for extra layers, ammo, calls and a hot beverage. It also seems like it will do a nice job of keeping out the water and mud. Looking forward to bringing it into the blind!

Great bag -- hard bottom helps in finding items in a dark blind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KurtMaz Exactly what I expected
This bag is exactly what I was expecting - its heavy duty, has good storage areas and is just the right size. I had it out in the blind this morning, and appreciated how it doesn't lose its shape - even when I rested my 12 gauge on top of it while taking a coffee break. It also holds a ton of stuff and makes things easy to find in the early morning light of a duck hunt.
The only thing I would add to this bag is some webbing on top of the bag so that I could tie down my small tripod seat while walking to and from the blind.
Assuming it holds up as well as my other LL Bean purchases - I see using it for many seasons to come. Great bag - highly recommend it.
