Rated 5 out of 5áby Winelover2 Compliments Again and Again
Hi. This is the second time I've reviewed this bag. I feel that now that I've put a lot of miles on it and put it in the sink and scrubbed it down a few times, I should let you know that although I don't mean to get the leather wet, I do. Yet the leather has not bled at all onto the canvas. It continues to look great and draw compliments. I was actually logging on to review the Design Your Own canvas bag, which I recently received and LOVE. That item is not accepting reviews today, so I'll use this space to ask that you consider adding these exact leather handles to the Design Your Own bags, in all sizes. With all of those color choices, I would design a match for each coat and jacket that I travel in.

Rated 5 out of 5áby JPHLLBean Perfect Every Day Tote
This super sturdy, durable tote is an excellent every day, carry all bag/handbag. It's just big enough to carry what I need without being oversized, and the leather handles stay on my shoulder much better than LL Bean's standard canvas handles. The bag is also classic, simple yet elegant, and will match anything. I also got my bag monogramed, and it came exactly as expected. The bag was also delivered a day ahead of schedule. I highly recommend this bag to anyone looking for an everyday tote that will last a lifetime!
To get an idea of size, this is what I currently carry in mine:
- two standard sized magazines
- a standard size composition notebook
- a dayplanner, which is just a little smaller than the composition notebook
- an ipad mini
- a small/skinny paperback book
- a journal, which is about the size of the dayplanner
- a larger sized wallet (long enough to hold a checkbook and bills without folding them
- a makeup bag
- several other smaller items, such as: mini hairbrush, pens and pencils case, phone charger, glasses/glasses case, keys, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5áby eastshoreview I love this
I have other L L Bean canvas bags but liked this for the size and especially the classic leather handles. It can be used as a shoulder bag for ease and if you are careful to use small zip pouches for your cosmetics or small items you will not have to rummage for your things.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Fantatictote Leather handles are great
The leather handles on this size bag make it a great daily shopper. It is easy to use as a hand bag or a shoulder bag with room to hold a smaller clutch,a wallet,and a book or two.Monogram makes it perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5áby EBatl Nice bag - Wish it was larger
I just got this bag and I guess I missed the measurements because I was expecting it to be a little bigger. It is very nice, sturdy, and sharp looking, but be aware that it is not a large tote that you can put books, beach towels, a small purse inside. Maybe a small purse, bottle of water, and a small ipad. I will still use it, but not as I expected it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby kvmewok9 Great overall tote!
Had to put this order on back order, and LL Bean was really great about keeping me informed as to when it would be shipped, etc. Even did expedited shipping! Really like this bag; the leather straps keep it from falling off my shoulder, and the classic open tote style helps me carry all my stuff!

Very handy and practical. The monogram is lovely. The red looks better in person.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Rhubarb737 Fantastic!!
I absolutely love this bag and have given several now as gifts in various colours and with monograms on them. Very functional and also very nice looking and high quality. I agree with some comments that the light canvas can get dirty a little easily with use, but it's not a major issue and most things can be wiped off.
