Like this bag, but wish it was in a larger size. Please bring back the black and brown leather wayside sling bags.

Rated 4 out of 5áby anniemh Nicely made
I purchased this item because of neck, shoulder and back pain and I wanted to stop using traditional purses. It is not as large as I thought it would be, so it doesn't hold some of the things I need to carry, i.e. glucose monitor. The strap is too short to actually wear comfortably so I am just trying to sling it over a shoulder and see how that works. Though I am not completely satisfied I like the bag itself and the style.

Rated 2 out of 5áby michellets Too Small
I purchased this bag because of the price and it looked similar to the small touring bag that I finally retired after 8 years of constant use. This bag was way to small for my needs so I am going to return it. I wish LL Bean would bring back the small Touring Healthy Back Bag back.

Rated 5 out of 5áby mntgirl My Favorite Sling Bag to Date!
I ordered this bag for a trip to Costa Rica. I was hesitant to buy it based on some of the other reviews I read about, but I was down to the wire and needed a bag that I could wear across my body. I was pleasantly surprised at how great this bag is. When I first opened it I thought it would be too small. But I have to say that it was perfect. I was able to fit a larger wallet and copies of my passport, travel itinerary, and insurance (folded in half) in the larger pocket. I kept my phone, tissues and a packet of wipes in the second section and in the smaller front zipper section I kept some gum and chap stick and stuffed receipts. There is a small back zipper section that is mostly hidden from view and I kept my credit cards in that location for extra security. It was the perfect size and fit for me to use every day of my trip and I am still using it now that I am home because it fits everything I need and I can walk around hands free. I am a light packer so I think more would fit into this bag than what I described was in mine as it expands out nicely once in use. The gray heather is a great color because it doesn't show any dirt and it goes well with everything because it is neutral. This is a great pack for the price and I am so glad that I bought it.

Rated 2 out of 5áby outdoorgirl89 Smaller than I expected
I had the LL Bean canvas bag "Ameribag" for 10 years and absolutely LOVED it. It was time for me to get another bag, so I got this one. I was disappointed because although the measurements were similar to the Ameribag, this bag ended up being much much smaller in terms of what it's able to hold. I wish LL Bean carried their canvas Ameribag again. I would buy multiple and tell lots of people about it.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Sissors Not for right shoulder carry
Liked the bag alot, but I'm left handed and carry bag on the right shoulder which makes it backwards, unless I carry in front of my body, which does not work. It is a nice size and I was disappointed that it was set up backwards for me.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Happycamper20 Too bad.
Sorry to say that this bag doesn't work very well. The design doesn't work for someone who wants a bag for everyday. The exterior is lovely, like the color and the texture. However, the zippers are too short for the interior pockets and it's not user friendly. My old LL bean sling bag was great in comparison so this was a disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LadyonCrutches Great small bag
I purchased this bag to carry items that would typically go in a purse while I'm on crutches. The bag fits comfortably and securely across my chest, has a slim silhouette that makes it possible for me to sit down with it still on my back, and fits absolutely everything in its pockets - from my phone to my wallet to my largest water bottle (it's a squeeze, but it fits!). The multiple pockets make it easy to organize items for easy grabbing and with the sling design I can swing the bag around to access all the pockets without taking it off. I get lots of compliments on this bag and will probably still be using it when I'm back on my feet!
I've seen some comments expressing concern that the bag isn't as big as expected. If you're looking for a bag to replace a purse or other small tote (as opposed to a bag that can act as a back pack), you will not be disappointed by this.

Rated 2 out of 5áby MOH66 Not Healthy back bag
I tried this one since I no longer see my favorite Healthy back bag. I did not care for the styling, color, or detailing as much as the Healthy bag. However, it would be great for trail walks, hiking and is waterproof.

Rated 4 out of 5áby likeLLBean4us I like it but....
I like the bag for it's zippered compartments, light weight, fabric and organization but it's too small. I've had 3 other bags by Healthy Back Bag - and worn them out! - but they don't seem to make the same style and size anymore. I know they make a larger version, but I liked the "medium" size for what I use it for.
