Rated 2 out of 5 by Bean4kids odd size and smell
I wanted this bag for a long time before finally ordering, waiting on backorder, and it just arrived. It's an odd size, and I like oversized bags. It is much too big for a purse, but lacks structure or a top closure to make it useful for hauling stuff or for travel. The cotton is thinner/flimsier than I expected. The bag that arrived had an odd oily texture and a very strong (bad) smell from either the wax treatment or something on the leather straps. I would LOVE a bag with the same look but the size of the long-handled medium boat/tote. I'd also consider this size with some sort of closure to make it useful for travel. As is, this one is sadly going back.

I loved this bag from the first time I saw it online. It was shipped quickly and when I first took it out of the packaging I must admit I was a little disappointed because I didn't think it looked like the bag shown online. However, I took it on a trip and was able to put everything I needed in it with room to spare. I am so glad I ordered it and now use it every chance I get. It shows no signs of wear and seems more I use it, the better it becomes.

I ordered this bag on Sunday 5/30 received it on Tuesday 6/01 I am impressed with how fast LLBean delivered this bag. The bag is huge, perfect for travel, students or teachers to carry books, papers etc. I found it too big but I am going to keep it because it is a bag that will get better with time. I used it today and noticed some of the wax rub off on my shirt. It was just a few specks but I am guessing it's from "first time use" I was able to wear it around my shoulder but in the winter time with a coat on, I am afraid the straps are not long enough. This bag is heavy duty, heavy enough to carry and store wood for a fireplace.

I'm in love it's the perfect size for me to carry during the work week. It's very sturdy and we'll made.... I wish the straps were a little longer but I love it..... I plan on ordering the Olive Bag if they can get it and keep it in stock!

This Bag was back ordered, but it was worth the wait. Nice leather Straps, nice Large size tote. I purchased this bag Monogrammed for Horse tack and its Perfect. The Waxed fabric gives it a Beautiful worn appearance. This is the perfect bag for traveling and daily use.

by Jenny56 Love. Optional shoulder strap would be great.
Best waxed canvas bag out there right now, at least that I could find. Ordered in saddle - beautiful. I bought as a tote for work. It's not a structured bag, so the dimensions are a bit deceiving - larger than expected. But I agree with the reviewer who says this is not meant to be a pocketbook/purse. I added heavy duty snaps on each side (see photos) to keep the size in check on days when I have a lighter load. I may also add antique brass d-rings on the side seams for a detachable shoulder strap - that would make the bag more useful for my purposes. I don't like to carry ANY bag on my elbow or in my hand, but that's just a personal preference. This bag is a beauty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KMcA Great Bag...for me
I first saw this bag at Christmas, in one of the stores, on a mannequin. I wasn't looking for a bag, didn't need a bag, shouldn't have bought a bag (I love bags way too much, and have too many). Some of the other reviews have said it is so big...yes it is. It isn't an everyday purse. It is a great beach bag, bag for a trip-car catch all or just when you need to take many things. I think the quality is good, the handles are just the right size that can be tossed over my shoulder. I only like big bags so if you are looking for a small bag, this isn't it. I have the boat totes but find this one way more stylish. This will carry all of the things you need and not look frumpy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NylaBone Totally disappointed
I don't even know where to begin. I was so excited and waiting for this bag to come in. I get it and there is scratches all over it. It is so big, even after I figured out the dimensions, it is far bigger than that. And the handles are so short, but its so big, like the size of a boat big, and then where the inside pouch is inside, you can see the stiches from the outside, if I could put up an image I would. It looks horrible. I have never, ever wrote a review before, but this I just had to give a heads up to say.. Don't do it.
