Rated 5 out of 5áby BusyVAMama L.L. Bean, please never retire this bag!
I bought this bag for my young son two summers ago so that he could pack his swimming gear in it. I wanted a medium size, zippered bag that could hold everything he needed for swim lessons. This super lightweight, waterproof bag has fit the bill and still looks new. We take it to the pool, the beach, anytime we need something lightweight and waterproof. It packs easily and carries a lot for its size.
Now that he's signed up for another activity that involves gear, I want him to have this same bag in another color since we tend to lose things when we try to take gear out of one bag and stuff it into another each week. Had a mild panic attack when I thought this bag was no longer available, but I am THRILLED to see that it's still going strong.
I can see why some adults may not like the strap length, especially if it's packed tightly. I'm of average height (5'5"), and the straps are a good length for me. My son is 8, and while it's a little large on him, he carries this bag comfortably to his lessons. No complaints about it being heavy, and as a result, he's much better about carrying his own things!
Like I said, L.L. Bean, please never stop making this awesome bag!

Rated 5 out of 5áby elliecola Best Tote Ever
I love this Tote! I have two of them for myself. One for the beach and one for an overnight bag.. I buy these as a baby shower gift. I put the baby's name on it and fill it with baby items such as diapers ect..Its a huge hit with the moms!! Both sizes work well for this! I just wish they would bring back the hot pink color!!

I love this bag! I've used it as a diaper bag for the last year, and it still looks new. After its no longer needed for a diaper bag, it will still get many years of use. I got it in teal when it was on sale, and I haven't regretted it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Perennial Needs longer handles
I purchased the teal bag. The color was right. My only issue are the handles they should be longer. If they give you that option the bag would be great.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Annetteb63 Great Bag
I bought this bag because I needed a new work bag. I ended up getting the green and red one. It has a good material for rain and snow. Also, it seems to be a pretty sturdy bag- so I plan on getting as much wear as I can from it!!

Rated 3 out of 5áby CELny NEEDS LONGER HANDLES
Love this bag except for the fact that the handles are too short. When the bag is loaded with towels and other stuff for the beach, it's uncomfortable to carry with the medium length handles. Please make one with the option for LONGER HANDLES! I'd gladly buy another one!!!!! The quality and workmanship are fantastic!!

Rated 3 out of 5áby LLBeanShopper04039 Somewhat Disappointed
The bag that I ordered suited the purposed of being more light weight than the normal canvas bag with the benefit of an outside pocket and loved the zipper closure. However, the color of the bag I ordered was not as bright as the color pictured online. I had it monogrammed and one of the letter was off, it appeared more squat than what was represented. This was my first and LAST attempt at having something personalized.

Rated 5 out of 5áby KCTeach Great Lightweight Tote!
This is a great tote! Well made to last. I purchased the medium and it's perfect for what I wanted. I wanted a bag to put in my luggage that was lightweight and wouldn't take up much room. It folds down flat and takes up no room at all. It will be great for packing up a few things and heading to the pool. The medium size is not big, but it will still hold quite a bit (book, small towel, sunglasses, sunscreen, water bottle, etc.). I got it monogrammed and it turned out beautifully, very nicely done.
