Okay, I was unsure of whether or not to buy this bag. It is a bit more expensive than the other totes on LLBean but I am so glad I went for it. Being in graduate school, I need a bag that can carry my lunch, my books, my coffee mug, my water bottle, my computer when I need it, an umbrella, and whatever else I need that day-this totally does this trick! While still being pretty comfortable might I add. Its huge and would probably be bigger than what most people would want to carry as an everyday bag, but for me, its perfect. I can put the handles on my shoulder or wear the longer strap across my body-although thats a bit more awkward. The inside is lined with a plastic-y material so when you spill you can wipe it right off. I have the white/black and the white part of it has a few scuffs but they've come right out. There are three inside pockets, one is zippered and the other two are open. Nice addition so that smaller things don't just get lost in the bottom. I use it everyday and it hasn't let me down yet! I plan on using it for a long time and for many activities. So far its been with me everyday at school, weekend trips home, wine festivals, and camping trips. BUY IT!

This is a great looking, roomy, waterproof canvas tote with zipper pockets which will carry everything from groceries (washable) to towels, books and lunch. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pipercotton It's wonderful
I love the size, and the sturdy material. I love the color( I chose the orange),and the handles are just right. I am looking forward to using my tote for all kind of adventures. I must agree with other reviews a zipper would be a nice addition.

Great tote as usual from LL Bean. Very sturdy. Holds a ton of stuff, with a shoulder strap attached, BUT, it doesn't feel big and bulky.
Can be used for everything from little to big items. It is a great buy.

I gave this to my sister for her birthday with her monogram on it and she loved it. Something a little out of the ordinary for a good price. My sense is that she will use it quite a bit and I'm confident the quality will live up to LLBean standards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BluePingu It's too big, but that's my problem!
I read the reviews, I looked at the specs, but the bag is still way bigger than I expected, and I can't return it because I had it monogrammed.
That said, I'm still giving it 5 stars (it's not LL Bean's fault I have poor reading comprehension skills!) It's very well-made, it's very attractive (I got natural/teal), it's roomy. If it came in multiple sizes like the Boat & Totes, I'd buy another, smaller one to carry my stuff to work every day, like I intended to do with this one. But I'll use this one on beach excursions and other day trips - it won't go to waste!
The interior pockets are what sold me on it in the first place. (That's the only negative thing I have to say about the Boat & Totes - you need a pocket to keep your keys, money, sunglasses, etc.) The detachable shoulder strap is great. A really nice bag. But did I mention that it's BIG?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kubie Big and easy to tote
When I received my order the bag was larger than I had calculated, but it works better than I imagined. I love the two handle lengths for hauling my school books giving me more options for comfort. Very durable and weather proof keeping everything dry and safe. Definitely worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SJDshopper Good size for multiple uses
I bought this in natural/bright orange (wish there had been a natural/navy). It's a nice large size that will be good for various uses - beach, outdoor concert, day trip. It's a very stiff bag, don't know if it will relax over time.

Good size, love the handle options and the color. ( I chose orange) As photographed. Very sturdy. Planning to use it at the beach as I can carry it as a cross-body and be hands-free for other items.
As per guidelines, I haven't used it yet, so I can't say it worked out the way I hope it will.

This is a very roomy tote that will serve it purpose well. It will easily hold three towels and what I need for a day trip on the lake this summer. I will likely use it for overnight trips as well. Though the dark blue isn't as deep as the photo shows it is still a super bag. As other reviewers mentioned a zip top would be great on this waterproof bag.
