Rated 3 out of 5áby beanbooter8 Not as pictured
I love LL bean, but you guys need to please update your pictures to be more accurate. This is the second item I have received that was not pictured accurately. I was so excited! It is a good quality item, but I will unfortunately be returning for a different product.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Michylove1 Great Bag
I just received this bag and I love it! Its my first purchase from
L.L. Bean but I know it will not be my last. It is much bigger than I anticipated but I'm still in love with it. I can use it for everyday and also as an overnight bag. The only thing is it does not stand up on its own but that doesn't really bother me.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Dottieg55 Excellent Bag
I actually own 3 of these bags in different colors. I like that the handles are long enough to go over my shoulder or I can use the long strap. It holds a ton of stuff and looks great. I would recommend this bag to anyone looking for good craftsmanship and style.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Rxempress Aching shoulder
Although not lightweight... It is lighter than my leather bags. This is nice because I have arthritis in my shoulders. It is large but between my iPhone and wallet and reading glasses I fill a normal purse. If I want to carry something else I would need a bigger purse. I like to carry a scarf and mittens in the winter and a kindle when I have to wait for appointments. This size is perfect

Rated 4 out of 5áby TBIBarb Nice. A bit expensive...
I like this bag a lot. It holds a boatload, and is fun and 'cute'. I do think it was a bit costly... but I will enjoy it, and use it happily.

Rated 4 out of 5áby SubZip Leather Accents
I have yet to use the bag. It only arrived yesterday. It's quite good looking and seems like it will fit the bill. However, if anyone is considering this bag because they were charmed by the description of it's leather accent(s) you might want to consider another bag by LL Bean. I couldn't care less but my bag came with one, 1"square tab at one of the termination points of the zipper, not the zipper pull itself.
The only potential negative is the smell. It smells strongly of chemicals, dye perhaps. I left it outdoors all day today in a stiff sea breeze with sunshine and the chemical odor remains. I just squirted some lavender water inside. Maybe that will help.
Been a Bean-head for years and this won't end the relationship.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MNZR ANOTHER GREAT TOTE
Can pack this tote for either an over night or just a day out. Comfortable to wear with either strap.

Rated 5 out of 5áby proustnbed Incredible!
I'm a twenty-something living in New York City, and I commute from Brooklyn to Manhattan every day. And as every New Yorker knows, a good bag is essential. This bag has been with me for every train ride for over a year. Incredibly durable, timelessly stylish, and flawlessly functional. I've had strangers come up to me and compliment it, and even a co-worker order the same bag for themselves. I'm so happy with this bag, and though I've been tempted by other high-end fashion brands; nothing beats the exceptional quality, classic design, and superb craftsmanship of my favorite American brand: L.L. Bean.
Thanks so much!

Flimsy, does not stand up on its own. Drab color. Looks a lot better in picture than it does in person.

Rated 5 out of 5áby msplaykate Love it, stylish cross between purse & tote bag
I have a large tote bag that I was taking with me everywhere but it has started to show its age. I wanted a replacement that was more stylish while still being durable and utilitarian. This bag is perfect! I view it as a great cross between a purse and a tote bag. Love the saddle color, and it fits things like my 15" laptop, a 3-ring binder, or an extra sweater just fine. Really love that the grab handles are long enough to fit over my shoulder comfortably, and that the shoulder strap can go cross-body like a messenger bag. Plus I've been surprised how many compliments I've received on it. Great buy!
