Rated 5 out of 5 by WoodTracker Excellent Canvas Duffle Bag
I bought this Field Canvas Duffle in a size Medium from a LLBean store in Fayetteville, NY... very much hoping to use it as my 'go-to' duffle bag and it exceeds all my expectations. The rivets are strong and the reinforced leather tabs are supple yet very sturdy. The reviews were right. This is an instant classic for numerous reasons!! :-) No wonder it has stood the test of time and use. The plaid lining resembles that of my Scotch Plaid shirt and adds a cozy feel to it. More importantly, the canvas is rugged and could withstand all the airport runarounds. No worries. As a carry-on, it fits into the airplane overhead compartment ( Delta, AA, USAirways, etc. ) with plenty of room to spare. The dimensions of 19.5x14x9.5 is perfect for a medium duffle. I noticed in the past that LLBean has offered medium duffles with dimension much bigger than that and could not fit into overhead compartments as carry-ons. This one, no problem at all. The saddle color looks fine for a pretty boy but I bought the Navy color... it is classy, 'hides' dirts, etc more easily and won't get 'dirty' as quick. All in all, a PERFECT DUFFLE BAG for all my domestic and foreign excursions!! :-)

On smaller regional jets even those roller bags designed to fit in the overhead bins are too big. I do a lot of weekend trips with tight layovers and decided to get a bag that would crush into any plane. This works. I looked at other companies, but the dimension and quality of this one struck me as being just right and I am delighted with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LetMeOutsideNow Quality & Space
Not that I would expect anything less from LL Bean, but this bag is top quality. The materials are strong, and the bag is put together well. It is also huge. I just spent 4 days in the mountains and was able to pack layers of clothes (it was cold) for the trip, my kit bag, a pair of shoes, and all my other necessities, including a travel size pillow, and had no problem getting the bag closed. The ends unsnap giving some extra room when needed (I missed that on the feature description, so it was a nice surprise). If you are looking for a quality weekend bag that will serve you for many years, it's hard to beat this bag, especially considering the cost. In my search, I came across other bags of similar or less quality that cost $50-100 more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zebster Great Duffle Bag
The expected quality of LLBean with the plaid lining that takes it to a whole new level. Got one for husband then had to have one myself. (it was the lining!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Texasbound Sturdy, well made,international stylish appearance
Great color choices, monogram well done, construction (seams & handles) very sturdy, heavy duty zipper on outside pocket. Would be nice to have a pocket inside the bag to keep small items from rolling around.
Very easy to attach shoulder strap to outside rings.
I plan to order this type bag in future for special gifts for friends.

I wanted a bag that I could bring to an academic conference and look somewhat polished but also set down on a tarmac or roadside without having to worry too much about it. This bag does both. I took two pairs of pants, three shirts, two sweaters, a blazer, a large notebook, toiletries and a laptop on a four day trip. I was able to also stuff several cans of redbull and packages of trail mix around the sides, too. It is so far durable and handsome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by adventrix Well-made but not designed for a smaller person
The canvas duffle is constructed well with lots of room and a solid base to maintain shape. The plaid lining is soft and attractive. My gripe with the purchase is that the carry strap is designed for a much larger person, resulting in the bag bumping against my knees and lower legs when I carry it. I am 5'5'' and need a shorter strap to carry this duffle bag comfortably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ahappyadventurer Perfect bag for the hubs
Just bought this bag for my husband's birthday. He's always going on weekend trips but is either jamming stuff into a backpack or taking a small wheeling suitcase with him. This bag fits the job perfectly--well made, zipper pockets, and big enough to fit clothes for a weekend or 3 day trip, easily!
I was actually surprised at how much could fit in the bag given it's dimensions. My husband was able to fit one pair of dress shoes, a pair of flip flops, and about 3 days worth of clothes comfortably. He absolutely loves it!
The plaid flannel on the inside is a bonus. I'm ordering one for myself, too! Another amazing product from L.L. Bean!
