Rated 5 out of 5 by GDub Great small backpack/large purse
I've been wanting to replace a decrepit quilted backpack/purse but until the Wayside Day Pack nothing worked. The Wayside Day Pack is just the right size to hold everything I want to carry around with me and still have room for a library book and a snack. It's lightweight and well-designed with lots of pockets in the right places. The only thing lacking is an open pocket on the back to slip maps or tickets into, but having to open a zipper for those things is not a real problem. I haven't yet used the Wayside Day Pack for hiking, but it should be just the right size for short day hikes where all you need is water, snacks, and a light jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Noel4U Hands free purse pack!
I just received the Wayside Day Pack and I really like it.
I just used it once , so far, and am anxious to use it again soon to
see how more I will like it. I like the size, zippers, bottle holders or
cell phone holders, the flap on the front, straps, and the
inside is perfect. I would have liked the monogram to have been
larger. Happy, Happy, Happy!!! Nice smaller size too!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Www2 Good backpack
This is a small backpack but it fits my ipad, notebook, has an outside pocket and fits my water bottle. It's not big and bulky. I thought at first it was too small but it's actually perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LabGeek Does what I need it to
This purse is just the right size for what I needed. It's new, so I can't speak to durability, but it certainly appears to be well made and tough. I like that it zips shut instead of having a less secure closure. Plenty of pockets and such to suit me. I wish it came in additional colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoyalLLBeanerMeister Perfect Bag! - Outstanding Quality - So Versatile!
This is an amazing little bag. I use it as a purse and it is lined with beautiful material....many compartments for pens, phone, key fob even my tablet fits perfect! The charcoal grey color (described as 'black') goes with everything and the "sea glass" is also nice for summer. The material is soft, not bulky, and this great bag will last me forever! The monogram is a huge plus too - I like to request a darker color monogram so it matches the fabric more than the standard white which seems washed out. Love LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by nicnatnoahnani Constructed Beautifully
This was my 1st LLBean purchase. The backpack is well constructed but still keeping the feminine appeal. I will be using this throughout my travel. I'm glad I browsed LLBean's site and now I have become a fan of their products.

Rated 1 out of 5 Tiny little bag.
I couldn't believe how small this bag was. My kid couldn't fit any of her text books into it. It looked more like a Barbie Accessory. As soon as I saw the package, I knew something was wrong. Don't buy this unless you buy it as a toy bag for your 2 year old!! This is coming from a second generation LL Bean Purchaser!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by nastygirl A great little backpack!
I bought this day pack for my trip to London and it served its purpose very well. It is big enough to fit everything you need for a day (including souvenirs purchased) but small enough to hold comfortably in your lap. The side pockets hold a beverage bottle very tightly. I really liked that it had two zippers on the large compartment so I could use a small padlock on them. I will continue to use this bag for trips to the post office and the store to pick up a few small items. Highly recommended!

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.
