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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by LLBeanLove1 Could be better
This is a good quality bag for the price. The raven blue is also beautiful. The leather is thick and the lining is nice. But I had to return it because it is too heavy. After wearing it for a day, I developed an aching pain in my left shoulder. Also, I think the bag could be made less boxy and a bit more curved in/gathered at the top and straps made to better fit the shoulder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vleeinaz Classic and timeless tote...
I usually prefer a structured bag but I am loving the casual elegance of this tote. The leather is of high quality, soft, and rich. I ordered the raven blue and the color is gorgeous!. A break-away zipper would be ideal as some reviewers have posted. Comparable totes are at least 2-3x the cost and don't usually have the product guarantee like LLBean's.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great first "adult" bag
I've been looking for an adult tote for some time a sensible one and for the price this was it. The bag is huge big enough for my 13 inch mac book air, my day planner and note books. It's study and the perfect carry on for an air plane, or over night bag for a weekend trip.
It's casual, sturdy, professional and mature.
Great buy and I am considering other styles from LL Bean.
