Rated 5 out of 5 by GrannyGrumpus Just what I expected...
This little bag is just what I expected. It is well constructed with many pockets, easily accessible side pocket for keys, airline tickets, etc. I love the color/print. The fabric looks sturdy. I read the reviews, and already knew about the inside flaps being a nuisiance, but I ordered it anyway. Another customer said he and his wife cut them out. That is what I will do, because it IS difficult to pack it easily with those dratted flaps! The other complaint I read over and over, but disregarded as well, is the fact that the strap on the back is far too small to fit over the handle on my LLBean pullman. Too bad! That will be inconvenient, for sure. But the size is perfect for me...I am 64 years old, and an under the seat option, or a smaller bag to go into the overhead bin, will be easier for me to handle. I think it will be a perfect size for me for a 2 - 3 day trip. All in all, I think this is a very nice bag, and I think I will enjoy it. Just wish the luggage strap on the back was longer, or perhaps offered a velcro adjustment so it would be easier when I have to use a pullman as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by chameli Too big and overpriced
First off I did not think it would fit under a plane seat. It is too big. Secondly for the quality it is overpriced at $129. The handle looks unstable and I agree with another reviewer that it could break any time. The rest of the quality is also poor. I found similar items on sale with other vendors for a much lower price. Sorry LL Bean this does not work.

Finally found the carry on that I have been looking for. Very easy to travel with and love that it has wheels. Only wish they were spinners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveTheClassicsLady We WILL be returning to this bag for carry-on use!
Well, ...it seems this will continue to be our "carry-on" of choice, ...even with new stricter airline requirements! We have had this bag for years! We own ALL pieces of LL Bean's "Brown Multi" luggage collection (wish they would bring back THAT beautiful print!) LOVE this piece of luggage, along with the AmeriBag (shoulder bag), lunch kit, diaper bag, messenger bag, and Town and Field tote! LL Bean, PLEASE bring back the BEAUTIFUL "Brown Multi" tapestry fabric in your luggage!!!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kookala Carryall rolling underseat bag
Not the easiest to maneuver, Wanted to veer left.
Will return and look for four wheel rolling bag. Also extending handle did not lock easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BettyB66 Rolls and will fit under plane seat!
Have not used it yet, but think along with the tote I purchased, I could almost get away without taking a check-in bag. It does seem a little small though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Eloise6 inflexible, poor design, nice to look at!
I found all pockets and compartments to be very small, I couldn't fit much of anything in the side pockets, not even sunglasses. The band on the back, meant to slip over the handle of my large suitcase, was too tight to do so. The handle also collapsed (didn't lock securely) Not at all useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYCWRITER Capacious, Practical, Attractive, Lightweight
I packed for a week, leaving nothing out. Everything fit without over-stuffing. It fit under my train seat neatly and I picked it up and it was
lightweight. There are a few compartments, too. This will be the only suitcase I use; don't need anything bigger because everything fits. And it's attractive, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barbechik Great little bag!
I wanted a pretty suitcase, for a change, so I got this one. It was perfect in every way--rolled easily, compartments good for 3-day trip, and light weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Babs88 best carry on ever
After purchasing a carry on where the handle snapped off, I knew that purchasing an LL Bean carry on would be as good as a large duffle bag that was bought for international travel. I used this for a 5 day trip with several different destinations so it went through a lot of rollling and pulling through airports and storing on planes. Aside from getting several compliments on the looks, this bag is the best in function. There are so many pockets aside from the major compartments to stash not only clothes, electronics and hair necessities but little items can neatly be arranged as well. The fun of it was discovering its versatility. The next piece of luggage will be a larger piece and I hope to match it with this one.
A great buy.
