Rated 2 out of 5 by kissmekate Way too small!
this bag is way too small to hold all the stuff that I take to the gym I could not even get my towel in it after my make up, blow dryer, gym shoes etc! and the shoulder straps are too thin and flimsy! very disappointing! this bag is going back

Rated 5 out of 5 by SACalderon Great gym bag
I don't understand the whining and complaining about this awesome bag. I use this four times a week for the gym. It holds swim suit, make up, hair blower, make up,etc. it is light weight and that was really important.
The HANDLES ARE PERFECT! NOT too narrow, just right.
I recently used this as a extra bag while traveling. I stuffed more things than I thought possible into this little jewel.
Yes...I DO Recommend it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kate321 Not the quality I expected
Ordered two bags, one for myself and one for my daughter. Should have ordered the lightweight totes instead. These are smaller than expected and as noted by others the shoulder strap lacks support. What I wish others had noted is that the strap is about half an inch wide -- so tiny and thin. The whole bag is small and lacks structure. Despite the photo, it would be very hard to fit much more than a pair of running shoes in this bag. Even for the sale price, it is expensive. I would return it but live in Canada so paying approx half the price for postage means I am stuck with both bags (and I had one monogrammed so can't return). Don't waste your money.

I was surprised by how narrow the shoulder strap was on this bag. It would be the perfect gym bag if it had a more substantial shoulder strap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyinGoshen Great swim bag
I use this bag when going to the gym to swim and take water fitness classes. It's lightweight but sturdy. It can collapse to fit in all size lockers or hang on a hook by the pool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SanDiegoLCSW Nice tote! Just the right size and versatile
I ordered this tote in Black with the monogram. Its size is just right, more like a medium-large purse size. My usual gym bags are brightly colored, look like a gym bag, and just used solely for that. However this LL Bean tote can easily can carry my swim gear, or items for a small picnic, library books or a minimum of gym gear without looking like a large gym bag. I even use it for the occasional overnight/weekend bag and it serves just right! I'm thinking of ordering a few more as gifts in the future! the monogram is a nice touch. Wish there were more color options. It is a nylon tote so I hope it last as well as many of the other LL Bean products I've purchased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by camper71063 Great for work!
Size is great for work, holds a laptop or tablet with some room to spare. Material is weather proof so rain, snow or sunshine it survives my travels by car or plane.
I do wish the shoulder strap was a bit wider but that would be the only slight negative - I love it, and the price was perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GGMA26 Sturdy and sized right.
Large enough for your gym gear, choice of handle or shoulder carry and quite attractive with monogram.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KnittyBiddy Just right bag
This bag reminds of the goldilocks story: not too big or too small; not too heavy or too light: not too flimsy or too stiff; it is just right. I can carry it by it's wonderfully cushy handles without having it drag down. I do use it as a gym bag for trips to the pool and there is room for everything without excess space, and the soft shape accommodates a locker without problems. I'd like another deep, slip-in wall pocket, but I manage with a smaller slip in kit-bag. I bought the black and it is quietly handsome. I'd love it in khaki and navy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lizlikesllbean Disappointed
I have been looking for a bag like this for a while. Two carry options, zip top, nylon ( wipe- off- able easy clean) and hoped this was the bag. Sadly it wasn't. I guess I'm spoiled by Bean's other tote bags and really had high hopes for this one. It feels cheap and just collapses. I really like my bags a little sturdier and to stand up on their own. Thanks to my LLBean credit card I returned it free of charge ; )
