Rated 4 out of 5 by ClassicShopperHere I like these, but miss the old "medium"...
I've been using these since the original ones that came with six outside pockets. They are very handy, but over the years LLBean has reduced the number of outside pockets from six to only one. I would like to suggest they go back to at least two pockets, one on each side, if not more -- on my old totes I use one for a water bottle, another for tissues and a third for used tissues and napkins. Also these used to come in three sizes; the middle size was perfect for my uses. The "medium" today is more like the old "small" and is much smaller than the mediums previously offered. I'd like to see that old medium size available again as the large is too large for most of my purposes and the medium is just too small for what I usually carry. However the large is good if you have a ton of gear, and I have bought and do use one of those. Thanks for your kind consideration!

I will be flying for 17 hours to Australia and needed a bag big enough to hold my purse, kindle, travel pillow, eye mask, meds, slippers and other travel essentials. THIS is the perfect size! I also will take a carry-on bag to stow overhead, but I can access this one easily and I love the inside and outside pockets--just wish there were a few more. It appears to be very sturdy but is extremely lightweight and will fold up nicely. I purchased the blue with darker blue handles to coordinate with my luggage. I am very pleased and highly recommend it for travel, shopping or going to the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eclectic Finally a handle that's the right size
It's really a 4 1/2 star for me. It's more practical than pretty though I like the color which was true to as pictured.
This is lightweight, sturdy & folds up nicely.
& BEST OF ALL Why I gave it 5 stars
it has the size handle I wish they'd put on the canvas totes and why I no longer purchase those.
It can go over my shoulder with a coat on!
I also like it has an inside and outside pocket.

by AML7 Big bag is REALLY big!
I was shocked how how big the larger bag was when I received it. I was super glad I order both so I could get a sense of the dimensions in person. In case you're wondering I wear a size 8 shoe. Seems like the medium would fit a beach towel and a couple of other things, but a size in between the two would be better I think. In the end I settled for the medium because I think the large is just too large. Love the product quality as always though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pielady Easy access beach bag!
We go to Jamaica for 2 weeks 2 or 3 times a year and this has proven to be a great room to pool bag. Since our room is often not ready when we arrive, I have this bag packed in my carry-on with our swimsuits, sandal, coverups and sunscreen so we can merge into the tropical mode immediately. For daily use the bag provides plenty of room for my Kindle, glasses, water bottle and anything else I am going to need under my umbrella by the pool or at the tennis court.
The zipper gives easy access and simple security so nothing comes flying out if I were to tip the bag . The side pocket is a great spot for the room key or lip gloss. This bag is very light when empty so it is always very easy to carry. I have used it for our last two Jamaica trips and wish I had found it years ago. I look forward to using it for all our upcoming trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by texashayseed Perfect bag, so many uses
Love this bag, great bargain. I carry to work - it's lightweight and large enough to carry files, laptop, folders, lunch and shoes. I would use this for everything: school, work, beach, flea markets! The green is perfect color match to the website.

Just got back from the beach in South Carolina with my new large, sand camo bag. Love it! Best beach bag! Just my husband, myself and 16 year old daughter, but it held all we needed for the beach. Sand camo print is cute and bag is strong and easy to clean. I have alway had the regular canvas bags, which I love and now am a fan of these bags as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ninabeana needs more pockets & longer handles!
I own two of these bags in the previous style with longer handles and pockets all around the outside. I want to order more of these! Please bring back the Adventure totes with the longer handles and exterior pockets all around the outside. I love mine and I want to order more!

I purchased the large bag for my wife just before we moved from an overseas military assignment back to the States. We have several canvas L.L. Bean totes but this one is perfect for traveling. It can easily be rolled and packed away in a suitcase until arriving at your destination due it's light weight, or used as a carry-on due to its convenient size. It's perfect for carrying towels and nick knacks to the beach or wherever your travels take you as it's incredibly durable. The only drawback is that the large size isn't large enough for some occasions; there needs to be an extra-large.
