Rated 5 out of 5áby LLBeanShopper1988 Perfect. Exactly what I looking for.
This bag was exactly what I was looking for. It has plenty of space and compartments. It felt comfortable to carry around. Also, it felt like high quality material. Which is good considering my track record with bags.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Century25 2 small shortcomings
2 features could be improved: First, the shoulder strap pad doesn't have enough "grip"; it slides off the shoulder easily, particularly my LL Bean vest, that is nylon material. Second, the bag needs some additional weight and/or stiffness in the base. The bag tips over easily when pulling the lap top out. Suggestion stitch in a small piece of very light pvc or plywood sheet along the bottom of the bag to allow for a little extra weight and rigidity.
That said, the construction quality and thoughtfulness of many of the features is very good. Plenty of well thought out pockets and the fleece lined tablet pouch, along with one or two other fleece lined pouches, are nice for stowing glasses and iPhone.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Unclejosh A great multiuse bag
Fits all of the "stuff" I like to carry to meetings and events. Roomy compartments in a well built bag lets me take a laptop if needed along with IPad, writing tools, and other things. Light weight but sturdy. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby billindg Surprisingly roomy and a good organizer
Replaces my old stand bye LL Bean fabric briefcase. I don't think this is quite as capacious, but it holds a lot. There are zippered compartments everywhere, handy holders for credit cards. More pockets that I have figured out what to do with yet. My only concern is that the fittings on the shoulder strap are plastic. These will wear quickly. I replaced the strap with my old strap which has metal fittings. I can't quite figure out whether the fittings on the bag are metal or plastic. If plastic, they are going to wear quickly. The old bag had metal fittings and I wore through those in about 5 years in heavy use. If you pack lightly, it may last longer.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Cantpickanickname Perfect for a busy NP!
I purchased this bag to use for work as an NP. The bag is perfect for work as it is roomy enough to add additional items and not so heavy that it kills my shoulders. I've also used this for a recent business trip & the bag worked well for that as well. ??????

Rated 1 out of 5áby 300b Had to return it
Unfortunately, the briefcase that I received had a weird odor. So I had to return it. I hope that this is a rare occurrence and that very few others have had this experience.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Roie Perfect size
Gave this to my husband who needed it to carry his laptop computer. This was large enough to fit the computer plus all the other stuff he wants available in a briefcase.
He loves it. Says it is the perfect size, quality is excellent. He already tried it traveling to Japan. Both he and the case returned without a scratch!!
LLBean can be trusted to provide excellent service, great quality, etc. We shop via the website frequently without incident. Great company!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby JustAnotherReviewer SOOO many compartments!
Very roomy with lots & lots of zippered compartments! It can comfortably hold a 15.1" Vaio, 13" Toshiba, and a 15.4" Macbook Pro along with their power adapters and still have room for 3" of folders. And there are plenty of other compartments for tons of other odds and ends. I'm very happy with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5áby MrChatham As Advertised
The bag is resilient, very light and can fit my Surface computer plus IPhone, files, business cards, etc. and still be light. It has tons of zippered compartments and the zippers appear to be of good quality. I replaced a bag from another vendor who advertised their bag as "rugged yet flexible". It turned out to be neither. It was bulky, heavy and within 6 months, the shoulder strap broke. Before a year was out, the zipper for the computer compartment broke. 6 months later, every zipper was broken, I had a bag that didn't close anywhere; so, you had to have it at your feet because if you stowed it overhead, everything would fall out.
The LL Bean briefcase has solved the problem beautifully and with its distinctive color, it's easy to tell which bag is mine. Highly recommended.
