Rated 2 out of 5 by SRMRN Possible defect??
I have been an LL Bean customer for years, and I ordered 2 of the deep orchid bags. When I received them, to my surprise, they both had small tears inside the bag (where the handles attach to the bag itself). I am sending them back. I checked my other boat and totes, and didn't seem to notice this being an issue. One of them, does have knots sewn inside to attach the handles? Not sure why the difference?? This fabric, is a little lighter in weight, than the original white canvas that I am accustomed to ....I may try another color, not sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HorseGirl27 Ten years of daily use and still going strong!
Ten or eleven years ago, Mom bought me a white and teal Boat and Tote (zip top) bag. I still have it! It is the ugliest bag ever, marked with memories of camping trips, travel, and working hard at the horse barn. For years I have been begged to throw it away because of its "rugged" look. But I love it so much that I will continue to use it daily until the bottom falls out! Here's to at least another five years, if not ten!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gsw14 Perfect Tote
I ordered the navy medium tote with regular handles because I like my bags to sit high when I carry them over the shoulder. Its perfect! I am a substitute teacher for multiple districts, a grad student, and a daycare teacher and I use this bag every single day. It holds everything that I need without falling over. That was my big issue. I hate when bags fall over or fold over. It is extremely sturdy and you can hold a lot in it. I usually have 2 large Staples Arc notebooks, two smaller pouched to hold business cards and thank you cards, my iPad mini in its BuiltNY case (though you could hold your 13inch Macbook Pro in its own sleeve- there are no pockets in this bag- easy), my Michael Kors wallet, sunglasses, keys, spare pencil case, and my Erin Condren Life Planner in it with room to spare. It is a really simple but really classy and classic design that goes with everything. I love everything about this bag and do plan on getting other colors. The medium is the perfect size for school and everyday use.

Ordered the blue/navy, long handles, open top. I am a middle school teacher and needed a bag large enough to carry all my school stuff. This is perfect and the dark color will not show any dirt from long years of use. Wish LLBEAN would come out with other dark colors.

Ordered in Navy, longer handles.
Perfect bag for a quick weekend trip, a day at the beach, weekend in the country or a trip to farmers market.
The zip top keeps everything secure and the longer handles allow me to throw the bag over my shoulder for comfort. Great carry on for the plane, the zip top keeps everything inside in case you are force to throw the bag in over head.
Love it, hope it lasts forever.
