Rated 4 out of 5áby bluecupcake Very nice tote
This is a very nice tote, seems to be made very well. The material is sturdy stiff sailcloth material, that I would imagine will repel dirt & moisture pretty well. The leather handles are a nice touch- dresses it up pretty well. My only complaint is that it doesn't have any kind of closure- I use mine as a purse, and when its sitting in the grocery cart or near me at a coffee shop- there's all my stuff for the world to see. I would have been nice if they added a hidden magnet closure or leather strap- or at least gave you the option if you wanted it. I'm going to try to add one myself. The length of the straps & size of the bag is perfect for me to either sling over my shoulder or carry in the crook of my arm- its tough to find a purse with just the right length & size. I think this will last forever, like all LL Bean things.

Rated 5 out of 5áby PatrinaZoe Excellent Quality Tote
Love this tote, looks great and holds more than I thought. I love how the wide, flat base allows the tote to be free standing, it's so much easier to use. Love the leather handles too. Looks like it's built to last.

I'm a luxury real estate agent in LA with Connecticut and Boston roots. I grew up with LL Bean tote bags and recently have been looking for something to carry files that was durable vs. the typical tote bag. I decided to bring the East Coast to LA. Love the leather handles and l how durable the bag is, perfect for toting my papers, tape measure, ipad, etc. I got the navy bag monogrammed and love it. Will be ordering the red too. I do wish they had it in black and provided the leather handles for the larger tote bags which I love for carrying larger items or weekends away. Also, LL Bean one thing I do wish this bag had was an inside larger pocket to toss keys and my phone in for easy access. Otherwise, perfect.

This looks like a nice bag and all the reviews were great. But the bag looks unfinished on the inside, not very nice for the price that was paid.

Loved the leather handles, wish you'd offer this tote in more color choices and a zipper. But can't beat the quality and sturdiness even in this small sized Maine made tote. I have ordered the dark forest green trimmed boat and tote in three different sizes and have found each tote to exceed my expectations. Just wish that the style of handle in leather was an option in all your boat and tote bags.

I've had "tons" of boat & tote canvas bags during 2+ decades and this is my first with leather handles. Love this bag! My canvas handles get grungy and the leather handles should clean up with saddle soap or similar. I like all the boat & tote bags, especially the zip tops (I drop the bag and all my stuff stays in place).

Rated 5 out of 5áby Tucky2shoez Boat lovers perfect tote
I received this tote as a birthday present. I had been eyeing the tote for quite a while and it exceeded my expectations. It is well made and the materials complement each other well: leather handles, natural canvas, and green trim. In addition, the colors of the tote match perfectly with my boat. It is sturdy and I am sure this tote will be a favorite for years to come. As a teacher, I know a great tote! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5áby mgacp114 Timelessly beautiful! Get ready for compliments!!!
I'm not too crazy about the original Boat and Tote with the matching fabric handles, but this one is absolutely gorgeous! I got this in Blue and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how the leather handles give a nice contrast against navy blue & white. I get compliments every time I take this out!
The material is incredibly sturdy and the bag is well-constructed. You could use this as an attractive magazine holder, because it stands on its own. This will last me for a looong time, but I'm already thinking about buying this in Red and Dark Green as well.

I love this leather handle boat & tote II bag. It looks so expensive
and is so convenient to carry items nicely. This makes two of
them I have ordered.
