Rated 5 out of 5 by Doc4kids Love this bag!
This is now my "go to" bag for carrying all my personal items, IPAD, books and even a set of extra clothes while traveling. The handles are padded and long enough to fit well over your shoulder. I like the fact that the canvas is pliable and not stiff at all, so if you need to, you can really fit all of the above and much more in the bag and still close it without difficulty and it's light enough that it won't strain your back or your shoulder.I also use this bag for work to carry both personal items and work folders and books. I can fit a 1 liter Camelbak water bottle in the outside pocket above the flap pocket. Definitely plenty of room for whatever you need. This was just the bag I was looking for and a great fit for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Vicki7Boston11 Great Bag
This is a great bag, I use it for work and school. It has one big area with two smaller pockets within it and 1 pocket on the outside that can hold a cell phone, wallet and a few other smaller items. The only thing this bag is missing a side net type drink holder if you use it for work and school. If this is used for weekend getaway trips I don't think a side drink net would be needed. This bag will last a lifetime of work trips and classes. The plus is the handles are big enough to carry by hand or you can actually carry it on your shoulder. It does come with a removable strap if you prefer the cross body action! You can never go wrong with LL Bean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MamaKate Everyone needs a big bag
In a recent move I was too aggressive in getting rid of things. I ended up without my favorite LL Bean tote - the one that saw me through grad school and beyond. I purchased this bag as a replacement. Very nice. The only improvement I would have added would be a divider in the main compartment. It becomes a bit difficult to find things once they go in the bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lovemyduckboots Great bag!
I bought this bag to replace my current work bag - it's a bit worn and not big enough for everything I need to carry. This bag is perfect! It's big enough to fit a laptop, lunch, workout clothes, and all the small items (pens, phone, etc). I also love that it has 2 straps. I travel frequently and this is the perfect bag for airports! Lots of pockets and they can all be closed. The only reason I didn't give this bag 5 stars is that it doesn't stand up on its own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by annathesia LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag
As soon as people see this bag they will also want one! Very roomy-can also be a disadvantage if you pack it to heavy. Straps are great. I just use the 2 handles since I'm short. As someone else mentioned the bag does not stand up on its own-just floppy when you sit it down. Love the flannel lining inside.

This bag is awesome. The handles and long strap give me the versatility I need when carrying my school books. It has plenty of room and I know I will have this bag for a very long time...quality is outstanding. Love LLBean products and customer service is the best!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DagnysMom Returned, but a great bag
I bought this bag for a trip to Disney and it was larger than I thought, as well as being heavier and darker than I would have liked. It is a great bag, though, and I would recommend it to anyone who was looking for a bag of this sort!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by strongpersonality good but
I purchased this bag as it was a cross body and that turned out to be great - strap was nice & long as I am very tall. The only problem I had was that the description stated that the bag would stand up on its own which it does not - the bag is not strong enough. Otherwise the bag is great, just what I wanted and would order another.
