Rated 3 out of 5 by hiker67 Great design, poor stitching
The pack's been used for errands and hiking for three months. The stitching is coming out where one of the straps is attached to the ring at the top. I toss small LLBean bags and totes in the washer and dryer from time to time. This one doesn't look like it will hold up in the wash.
The design is perfect for me, with water bottle and monocular easy to reach in the side pockets, a deep zippered front pocket, and a velcro tabbed low front pocket for sun glasses and other items needed frequently. The main compartment holds personal items along with gear for a long day hike with a big lunch. It also fits well on a petite-size person. Wish the stitching wasn't coming out.

Some women love shoes, some love both shoes and bags. I am a bag freak love them, but they need to meet my requirements. Lot's of organization and this backpack known as a day pack for everyday use has it all. Comfort, places for all and secured everything is zipped up. Except where you keep your keys is under a Velcro secured pocket, you clip your keys to a key finder.
Just a Perfect Size for a petite woman or any woman.
Best of All I am finally Hands Free!!!!

Even though I am returning this pack, I give it 5 stars for the size and quality. Unfortunately, it has only 1 inside zippered pocket which isn't big enough to hold my passport case or my wallet. I will be traveling in Europe and wanted something that I can secure my wallet in. It would be nice if it featured a wide zippered pocket facing the body when wearing or larger zippered pockets inside. It would however be a great run about town pack.

by GoldenCactus Great bag! Just what I needed!
I just received this bag yesterday. This is my first purchase from LL Bean and I LOVE it!!! It's just what I was looking for, perfect size, not too big n not to small. In fact, I moved everything from my large diaper bag into this bag, and still got plenty space for my water bottle. The outside side pockets can fit water bottles nice and tight. I just love the entire design of this bag, super functional and the most amazing thing is that even fully loaded, this bag still feels so light and ccomfortable! Plus, the quality is awesome! I highly recommend this bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by veterantraveler2 Perfect size and arrangement of space.
Everything I need fits in the pack and the two side pockets are super for a water bottle and cell phone (or keys). Allows for hands-free shopping and walking or hiking.
I use it every day and will take it on overseas trips this year.
My only hopes are twofold: 1) LLB will continue making this product available, and 2) that some different colors would be offered.
I'd buy another but the pink and (was it jade?) were far too bright or flashy for a woman--great for the kids and young people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RunningTurtle Small backpack
I made a huge mistake when I ordered this backpack. I didn't properly check the size. It is much smaller than the backpack I intended to order but it is so nice I'm going to keep it and get a larger one as well.
It's a very nice pleasing color kind of a silver gray. It's nice and
strong and comfortable. Has lots of nice compartments and zipper
sections. (there should always be zipper sections in a purse of
I use it daily now as a purse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fuuryfriends perfect size daypak
I had been looking for a small daypack....and the price and quality of this LLBean one is just what I wanted. The material is nonleather which is a must for me and the color is the bluegreen one. The size is less bulky than others I have looked at and compared to ones priced alot more.....this one is a better buy....and a better pak. thank you!!

This is just what I was looking for. Something casual to carry my "stuff" without any problem. I bought the charcoal one to go with all my casual wardrobe. Just perfect for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ddashby small but durable
I bought this for a day pack, just like the description says. I found it smaller than I thought it would be, but that's my fault, I should have got out a tape measure. Upon using it for a trip to the zoo to put just the essentials in it, it was perfect. Light weight and very durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dilly2 Just the right size
This backpack is just the right size for using as a carry on. Fits everything you need in it. As a backpack it frees up your hands if you have a suitcase or should you be traveling with children. Looks really nice too and could also be used as a purse.
