Rated 5 out of 5 by IAMgal Love this !!
This is just what I wanted for traveling. Love how sturdy it is, pockets, and how it zips closed. Perfect size for plane travel too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jerseyjimt The Perfect Bag For Me
I have several bags for day trips into NYC, a daily use one, and one for traveling more than 1 night. I needed a bag that works for a 1 night stay and that I can take into restaurants and use on public transportation. This bag works because of it's shape I can take it into restaurants, along with train/bus travel. It has 2 outside and 2 inside zippered pouches so I have easy access to my phone, glasses, etc. I love it and of course it's Bean quality and guaranteed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SAVYLLBEANSHOPPER what a great bag!
what a great bag - it's great for carrying travel documents etc. when traveling or just everyday items like books for a class. Everything stays nice & secure with the zipper top too. I found this heavy duty bag to be roomy with lots of space inside & out. I've used it with the hand straps and the shoulder straps. I love the color as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ascolto Terrific bag - one flaw
I like everything about this bag: the size, the color, the outer pocket clasp design, the inner lining, the inner pockets - with one exception. The handles are too long. I am 6 ft tall, and when walking holding the bag it barely clears the ground. When going up or down stairs it bumps on the floor. There is already included a well-designed shoulder strap, so that option is addressed. If the handles were shortened to the about the size of a regular briefcase (maybe a bit longer), this bag would be perfect. If LL Bean redesigns with shorter handles I would buy another immediately. Can they retrofit the bag with shorter handles? I would be happy to pay for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jerry673 Great airline bag
If like me you travel for work and need something to carry all the small stuff, this is it. Large outside pocket fits my iPad perfectly. Zippered internal pocket keeps my phone and tablet power units for use inside the terminal. The zippered top removes worries about things falling out in the x-ray machine and the small open internal pockets hold my phone and other metal for security clearance. Outside Velcro pocket under the large pocket is perfect for items needed on the plane such as handkerchiefs, etc. The enclosure device for the iPad pocket is perfect; secure but very easy to access. Only improvement needed - a light colored interior so you can see items.

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.
