Rated 1 out of 5 by LoveTheClassicsLady We prefer the OLDER version!
We own 3 older versions, and 1 of the newer ones. We are (unfortunately) unable to use the newer version for travel, and are VERY limited with ANY use. The "design" is NOT what we were used to, especially the flip out credit card holder...NO WAY would I store a credit card, or anything else for that matter, in those slots. Also, the gaping 13' X 5" boarding pass sleeve is pretty much useless as well. That slot needs a snap, strap, zipper, or SOMETHING... to help contain passes/papers, etc. EVERYTHING slides/flies out as soon as you unfasten the main clip...scary! PLEASE bring back the OLDER version, LL Bean,...we're wanting to order a Dk. Blue!!

This is the second one for our family. I bought one for my husband, who travels quite a bit and always seemed unorganized with his passport, tickets, and other documents. He loves it and uses it every time he is on the road. I have been wanting one for myself and just didn't get around to ordering one until recently. I was doing my Christmas shopping and decided I needed this as a present to myself.
I just returned from a trip and used this everyday. I found it to be the right size to carry my essentials and documents. I hate carrying a purse, so this is ideal. A zipped area for most everything, i.e. comb, small mirror, lipstick, cough drops or gum, and loose change. It goes over the neck or shoulder comfortably and never feels heavy. It does not really look like a purse, so great for both sexes. Don't think I could live without this now!

Easy to use. Easy access to my phone. Zips up for safety. I don't have to carry a bulky purse. Easily slips into a bigger bag if needed.

I am traveling with high school students to Ireland, Scotland and England in a few months. I purchased this organizer to carry copies of all 24 passports on my person at all times! (Just in case, you know, they are teenagers!). It is great. There is plenty of space and numerous areas to carry personal stuff as well. I would recommend this product.

When I need to hide a large some of money to go to the store, this is great. I can even put my IDs and Credit cards in there and not have to worry about my purse.

Very well made and nice features, but quite bulky for fitting in a pocketbook.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Frenchy Great in theory but poor in execution
I found this in the store but I didn't have time to carefully examine it.
I liked the navy color and the adjustable long string. I planned to wear it around my waist when we were traveling out of the country and needed to have our passports with us. It was very comfortable around the waist without anything in it. Of course it can also be worn around the neck, but I prefer not to wear things around my neck especially when it is hot.
Tonight I was going to fill this purse to see how it would work with all my stuff in it. When I unzipped it, I found that there was NO other full length zipper inside. The long 14" section for passports and money was totally exposed and not at all secure. The same was true for the credit card holders. It would be very easy for credit cards to fall out.
There is one 6" x 4" inside zippered pocket which has see through mesh. There is also a 7" by 5" zippered pocket on the outside which is padded with a mesh covering. I wish that all pockets were zipper safe.
I am very disappointed that this purse isn't practical. I hope that Bean will redesign it to make it save for travel.

I had to replace my old Travel Passport Organizer as one of the clips had broken! I traded it in for this newer model and it does have lots of slots for cards etc HOWEVER the flap that opens up to put in credit cards etc is very flimsy and I can NOT use it! Whenever I would open up my wallet, the cards that were in there would start to fall out and I was afraid I would lose something very important! Other than that I love the product! I just wish they would redo that flap so that it is firmer to prevent items from almost falling out! Would HATE to lose my debit card?? license?? etc!
