Rated 1 out of 5 by ItsLisa Just not what it should be!
I purchased this for an upcoming vacation where I know I'll need to organize our travel documents / passports etc. At first glance on the website, I thought this would be perfect - but in reality, not so much.
As pointed out previously, it's flimsy. Some hard plastic or cardboard inslde would help immensely. All too often when traveling, you need a stiff surface to write on.
Who needs TWELVE pockets for cards? OK, so maybe a couple forms of ID, but seriously? Twelve? I thought some would be deeper, but only the top on the left is.
The attached tag says there is an "exterior ticket sleeve". I'm still looking for it. This is NOT the zippered cell phone pocket, that is mentioned separately.
It seems like there's a lot of wasted space in this item.
I was really hoping to find a travel wallet from LL Bean, but it's going back. Hoping something new will come out before our trip?

I used this as a regular wallet for a while and it didn't deliver. I can't imagine using this for important documents like my passport.
This wallet is flimsy and my credit cards and check book kept falling out. The cell phone compartment is ridiculous and stretches out the already flimsy construction even more. Bye Bye back it goes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Brad078 Not what I expected
I bought this and another ticket organizer at the same time to compare with a hands on review. Let me start this review by saying that I kept the OTHER organizer and have returned this one for my money back. The reason for this is the fact that this one is flimsy. I don't mean the materials I mean that you could actually fold it in half. I wanted an organizer to not only keep all my travel documents in one place but to protect them as well. If you put your airline tickets and a couple of documents in this and then put the organizer in your bag, there could be a potential of everything being creased and mangled when you open it up again. As far as organization in the interior it's great. I would add a second passport pocket in case this is being used for the whole family like mine is. The exterior zipper pocket on this is lined with felt and is great for watchers or rings or something. I would use this if it were given as a gift but I would not choose to buy this over some competitors.

I bought this item for use while traveling but decided to use it all the time as it fits into a regular size purse, and it's convenient to access and have all of the cards, cash, etc in one place. Plenty of space to store with zippers and compartments. Could use as a separate purse if needed. I wanted it, however, in another color. The blue is nice, and I suppose when you travel it doesn't stand out when you take it out to pay. But the blue was a bit dull with the grey. Would prefer a more interesting colors. I would recommend it as the price is good and it's an efficient way to keep all your information. You can carry it as a clutch purse just by itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oldcatlover Makes a perfect wallet
My shoulders bother me if I carry a purse so I have to use only a wallet. When I got the iPhone 6plus it wouldn't fit in my old wallet and after looking at many other wallets I found this one and decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did because it has turned out to be the best wallet I have ever used. The phone fits perfectly and the zipper pocket for it is lined with soft material so you feel safe putting your phone in it. Lots of storage areas and easy to carry. Waiting to see if they offer new colors so I can order another. Want to have a spare for the future! It's great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zangl Best little bag/purse there is!
I have gotten so many comments on this ticket organizer over the many years I have used it for my wallet and credit card holder. I am on my third one and actually bought two this last time so that years down the road when my 3rd one wears out I will have a backup in case L.L. Bean ever stops making this item. It is compact, tough and roomy enough for everything I need to carry to just run into a store, including my cell phone. They now have put a zipper on the very front compartment to hold your cell phone in securely but I still wish there was an outside pocket, in addition to the zippered compartment so I could just slip in my notes or whatever. Only con I could say is that I wish there were more colors or patterns offered. Still one of the best items I have ever purchased from L.L. Bean!!!

The organizer was purchased as a replacement for one stolen on a recent trip. This organizer is very close to what I had and will provide the same needs. It has many pockets, slots, and zippered areas to keep all your items in order. The organizer is soft, flexible, and lightweight. I use it to carry my various confirmations to hotels, flight plans, file receipts, phone numbers etc. Word to the wise: never carry credit cards or passports in one of these keep them on your person. I purchased an additional organizer this time so my husband and I can carry duplicates of our travel documents - after our last travel experience. We have found these organizers to be a great travel item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CharlynH Doesn't protect against RFID theft
Great document holder. A place for everything - credit cards, identification, money, printed itineraries, passport, boarding pass, cell phone, etc. Fits perfectly in the pocket of my carry on. I like the detachable strap so I didn't have to worry about dropping it during check-in. I like the all-around zip so things don't fall out. I wish it protected RFID items. However, I put my credit cards in RFID protector sleeves and they still fit in the slots, although they didn't slide in/out as easily if they weren't in the sleeves. That's the only negative I could find.

It is soft & cushy (for your phone in the front zipper) yet sturdy & secure with all the nifty LL Bean zippers & plenty of slots for credit cards, etc. A long zippered compartment inside for money or receipts & a small zippered see-thru one for coins or whatever. It is just flat out handy ~ I love it!
