Rated 5 out of 5 by CaveatTalonWager Great little bag for it's size
I'm going to comment on several things here that I think potential buyers will want to know, first of which is the color of this bag. It is more teal green than what is shown in the picture (it looks bluer on my computer screen) and the color is not quite as vivid. Having said that, it is still very pretty. I like the looks of the bag a lot.
Now, about size: This bag is not a small suitcase type carry-on. If you want a bag that you can load several days worth of clothes and accessories into, than this is not the bag for you. It is more useful as a toiletry bag or even an airline carry-on where you might put one change of clothes and some over-night accessories or toiletries into.
I do a lot of international travel (just got back from Tanzania today) and have seen a shift as air travelers try to carry more and more bags onto the plane with them due to the charging by the airlines of checked bags. This is making the airlines more picky about what carry-ons they allow. Overhead bins only hold so much. This is a wonderful little addition to a small rolling carry-on, as it fits nicely under the airline seat, keeping necessities handy.
This bag is well designed. It has a pretty ample front pocket on the outside, and two smaller end pockets, one of which has a small zipped pouch, key holder and two pen slots. The back of the bag features a strip which places over the handle of a larger bag, very handy. A strong shoulder strap makes it easy to sling over you shoulder, and of course you can see in the photo the carrying handle on top. Nice.
The bag is made of a bit thinner material than I expected, but it seems to be very well made and strong. Time will tell if this bag can hold up to the riggers of international travel, but I do believe that it will.
All in all, this is a great little bag and I have already found it to be very useful for my travels. But do check the dimensions here on Bean's site to be sure that this is what you are wanting from a size standpoint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cindyo33 Holds more than you think
I dont know about you all but when i travel i stick my life in a tote bag, lug it on the plane and try to shove it under the seat.
This little gem holds more than you would ever think. Its back strap slides over your rolly suitcase so hands free.
I am in a hand brace right now so i needed hands free.
All kinds of pockets in front and sides.
Wished the offerings had more desireable prints though

Rated 5 out of 5 by kayakmom Good under the seat carryon bag!
I ordered this bag to use as an under the seat carryon bag for a recent flight. It worked out perfectly. I packed my ipad, kindle, camera and all of my chargers in this as well as some snacks and a windbreaker. I was able to use one of the side pockets for a bottle of water. It fit well over the handle of my luggage and the shoulder strap was great too. This bag is a good size, not too big but very functional.I was able to easily slide it under the seat next to my purse with no problem. The material is durable and the quality seems good.
I know I will use this bag for years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by carolinagirlwannabe Wish it was a little wider
This is a nice looking bag with a lot of compartments. That being said, I wish that with all the compartments it was a little wider so there would be more room in the center. Other than that I have no complaints. The pattern is cute and I did find another use for it other than what I had originally planned. I am very rarely unhappy with my LL Bean purchases and if I return it, it has to be really bad.

Very nice looking bag. Will be great for the beach or park. Was a little disappointed with the size. Thought it would be slightly larger.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JeannieBeanie Nice but Small
I thought this would be perfect for traveling on a plane and tucking under the seat, but it really is smaller than I anticipated. It is more the size of a lunch bag with several compartments. Not sure whether I will keep it or not. I like it but it may not do the job!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovinglife1 Nice size, can hold a lot, padded strap
This carryall is a nice size. I use it for personal items when going on a trip. I like the padded strap and that it can fit on my carry on bag as well. I did find that the material was thinner than I expected, so it seemed a little lesser quality than expected for LL Bean. It still is a nice bag and it seems like it will last. Another make up bag fits nicely in the inside with room to spare. 4 stars due to the thinner fabric, but overall a good accessory bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Traveler7 good travel bag
lots of space for basic carryon items - about as big as a purse but more organized. Padded shoulder strap is very comfortable.
