Rated 2 out of 5 by Kaycnls Love it except for one design flaw
I love this bag, I've been using it traveling through airports for the past two weeks. Except one major design flaw! The handles are too small to "flip" it onto my shoulder. I am using this as a briefcase - and when I have a purse in the other hand I can't "flip" it onto my shoulder because the handles are too small. It takes two hands to hoist it up onto my shoulder. Otherwise this is a GREAT TOTE! Love the quality of the materials, the workmanship seems great, it can hold a little or a lot. And the internal pockets are well thought out.
Love the red color - bright and positive. I'd buy another in a more neutral shade if it was available and they fixed the handles...
Also wish it had a zipper or something to at close or partially close the top.

Simple design, practical, beautiful!
This is my new workbag. I find the size perfect - plenty of room but not so big that I feel overwhelmed. I love the depth of the bag. It seems very sturdy and looks great. The bag has a large internal zippered pocket that holds my Kindle paperwhite, a small calendar book, a change purse. There are two other slip pockets, one large enough to hold my hard eyeglass case. I keep my ID and lanyard in the other.
I purchased the coordinating clutch with this. It is the perfect size and compliments the bag beautifully, yet simply. Now I only haul one bag to work with me! I NEVER buy expensive bags, but I absolutly love this one and think it was worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GLDNDOGLVR Gorgeous Bag!!
This is a beautiful tote! I ordered the red and the leather was soft, supple and a very nice quality. I did not end up keeping the bag because I am petite and the bag did not fit me proportionally. I was disappointed to have to send it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by QualityMotivated Beautiful Tote
This is really well made. It is a bit too long for me in appearance and to reach in, as well. Would like it about four inches less long. Yet I really like it. I would like to see it come back in Raven Blue because I missed it. The Twilight is more Teal in person. One pocket fits four fingers, while the other fits three fingers. Would like both pockets four fingers wide and deeper. It's a bit shallow. It's wide enough to put three pockets across. It has some weight to it. Not flimsy.

I thought this bag was very well designed. Loved the interior pockets. BUT, it is too big. It is a travel bag not an every day tote. Much too long proportionate to width. If they made one two to three inches shorter I would probably buy. Also straps could be a little "flatter" for comfort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KKDuBois Would be better in black
It's a great bag, very heavy duty but the color is not true to the picture, it's a little more of a mustard color. I would love it if it came out in dark brown or black!

Rated 5 out of 5 by emilyintheville Beautiful leather!
This bag is beautiful! Check the dimensions carefully as it is a large bag, but great when you want to bring your laptop and notebook along to a business meeting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by happymomof2 PHOTO DOES NOT DO THIS BAG JUSTICE!
This is a wonderful bag! The leather is very supple but definitely not flimsy, and the color appears more neutral in person, not yellow at all. Handles go easily over the shoulder, and it is a deep bag with great detail in its construction. Buying it on sale only sweetened the deal! Best of all it's from L.L. Bean!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by musiccitymom Love this bag!
The single photo of this bag does not do it justice.
I was delighted to receive a bag much larger and not as yellow as the photo indicates, a lovely light brown, sand color. I had measured my old bag and knew my laptop would fit but was really pleased with the open and roomy interior. Again, an additional photo would have helped. My only wish, a little padding in the bottom or brass feet so I didn't worry about sitting it down and breaking any contents.
I will use for MANY years - really love it!
