Rated 3 out of 5 by Traveler5315 Good, but could be better
This is good for organization, but here's what it lacks:
A TRUE outside pocket on the back for ease of reaching boarding passes (one that can be reached without unzipping!)
The older version of this wallet had one on the front.
A long strap and extra hook so it can be worn like a cross-body bag (A wristlet isn't handy with a suitcase in each hand)
I love the padded zip pocket on the front for my phone, but it defeats the effectiveness of an easy-to-grab pocket for boarding passes, grocery lists, reciepts, etc.
LL Bean, please add those features and I will buy another! You can't go wrong with these great products.

This is my second travel wallet from llbean. I loved my first one and wore it out. I had even washed it to continue it's use. Finally the zipper malfunctioned and I had to give it up. I love the new design...the extra zippers are a plus... also the carry handle is nice. For me it is perfect whether travelling or at home. It is sturdy and attractive. I am sold on the longevity of LLBean products.

Wish I bought this long ago. I used this for keeping printouts of flight and hotel confirmations,receipts, as well as other papers for traveling. Kept them organized. Also used the small interior zippered pouch to hold loose change I picked up through my trip - very handy. Recently purchased one for my mother as a christmas gift. Two things I don't like: the price. I felt this would have been more appropriately priced around 18.95 -24.95 is a little too much for it. Second, the slots on the right side interior are all made for smaller tickets, which I didn't care for.
All in all, this is a great organizer. I am happy with my purchase and wish I had bought it long ago. I know my mother will be very happy with it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NurseManager Older versions were much better!!
The older version has much more substantial fabric and functionality. The stretchy fabric is not dressy and detracts from the overall look. The nylon fabric is also not as strong nor dressy as the older models. The original model also had an inner additional section, which is missing from this model. I am returning. Sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MommaDodi Great item!
I needed something durable, practical and functional for use as an everyday wallet for credit cards, store cards, check book, receipts and epi pen (I have a child with food allergies). This item fit the bill perfectly! It is LARGE, but that didn't bother me at all. Also, I ordered the red color and it is very much a deep cranberry - not the bright red shown in the photo. I have gotten several compliments on this item and plan to order another one for a back-up. The outside zipper pouch/section is PERFECT for an EPI_PEN or cell phone! I love, love, love this!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TDJP Super functional...
I just wish it had a longer strap, it's big enough to be a casual purse!

We purchased this item for a trip abroad & it was everything we hoped it would be. The size is perfect, allowing it to fit in my handbag. It holds everything we need- passports, boarding passes, money, plastic cards as well as a pad & pen- in the assorted pockets so that I didn't need to carry my wallet as well. Everything is easy to get at when necessary. It has proven to be very helpful.

This organizer is a great way to keep organized no matter where your travels take you. I had the older version and I love the improvements on this one with a zippered inside pocket to keep cash or anything you want and it won't fall out. The zippered coin pouch is an nice added feature along with the extra slots for cards. I can keep all my travel cards from airlines, hotels, and even grocery stores out of our area in one place all the time. I take out what I don't need for that particular trip. I still had room for ID and credit cards, which is a big improvement on the older model. The outside zippered pocket that is fleece lined is really nice also, to keep an IPod, camera cards or even a flash drive safe and protected. I do like that it is thinner and lightweight and keeps everything organized. The only things missing over the last version is an outside ticket holder and a longer inside pocket that was nice to keep travel documents. I did not miss the outside ticket holder that much with our last airline travels, especially with having our boarding passes on our phone. The extra inside pocket to keep documents was nice, I liked keeping the next document up front that we needed and others in the back one or to keep my receipts separate. I also missed having black as a color option but it was easier to find the blue in my black travel bag.

My old LLBean travel organizer had seen better days - the end of the pouch had sprung a hole after many trips to Europe. So when I saw this similar but slightly smaller version I went ahead and bought it. It works just as well as my older version, but has two improvements. One is a carrying strap which you can hold on your wrist - plus it has a padded outer pouch for your cellphone. I used this to store my new RFID travel wallet and a small coin purse. It worked great! Overall just another great buy from LLBean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BetaBeater I Just Wish. . .
While this is the best you can probably get I really miss the older version of the LL Bean Passport Ticket Holder Travel ZIP AROUND Wallet Case.
That had contained an extra middle flap to hold a little bit extra. . .like stamps, coins, ship tickets and like. THAT was the best ever travel wallet you can own.
It even had a chain loop, like a bikers chain wallet, that you can hook to your belt loop for that extra security if someone had "sticky fingers".
Still, you can not go wrong with this version. I picked one up for myself and gave my old one to my wife. ONLY because she had more documents to carry than I did. The quality is the finest and the size is just right for the coat pocket.
As I pine over my old travel wallet I'm still satisfied with this version. I give it "two thumbs" up.
