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!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Mag7Mom Love this bag
I love bags and this is no exception! I received it earlier this year, and I have used it everyday since. I had it monogrammed in burgundy and it looks great!
I no longer use a diaper bag, but sometimes need wipes and a diaper at times and this is the perfect size!

Rated 5 out of 5áby DogMom202 Great looking and durable
I love this bag. I get compliments on it all the time.
I use this as a daily hauler for work, etc...I was worried about it being too masculine or utilitarian looking, but it's just perfect.
First off, it is a big bag. But it is nice and lightweight so that when it is relatively empty, there's not a lot of bulk to it. But if you do need to put a lot in it, man is this thing a black hole. I'm amazed at how much stuff I can fit in here and still carry it comfortably.
The canvas material is great. It's super durable and I don't have to worry about babying it. It survives a trip to a muddy dog park with a husky and comes out looking fine.
It's probably too big for most people to use as a purse, which is the case for me. I'm not going to carry this around shopping just to hold my keys and wallet, but when you need to bring a little more with you, it's great.

Rated 4 out of 5áby WiseConsumer Size is a factor
I was looking forward to using this bag but it was very big and I decided I didn't need one that size since I already have several. It was very attractive and lightweight, I just wish it had been in a smaller size. One review said a picture of a lady holding the bag would help and I agree. I regretfully had to return.
