Rated 4 out of 5áby BostonianTravelGirl Great utility and nice size, a few minor quibbles
I really like this bag overall, it's got a roomy main compartment and large external pockets on both sides- one that functions as a travel organizer with other interior pockets, the other as a large "envelope" type pocket. It's great for the office-to-gym, holds everything I need and can use the external pocket for my gym clothes. Happy also that the bag is washable. Great feature is the additional luggage strap on the reverse side that allows the bag to sit securely on a rolling bad without falling off. Genius.
What I don't like- the straps! Holy cow, they are way too long. I am 5"5 and if I held the bag in my hand by the straps the bag would drag on the ground! The length is also awkward on the shoulder. I immediately altered them so they are about 6" shorter. If I hadn't been able to do that, I would have returned it. The length is that bad. ALSO, the mesh water bottle holder should be taller, if you put a 16 oz water bottle in it it is apt to topple. This would be an easy design change to make. The umbrella slot could also be a bit taller, but if it were the shape of the bag would have to change, so I understand why it is the size it is The final change I'd make would be to move the key clip from the front pocket to the main pocket, so that you don't have to unzip the front pocket to access them. It's fiddly there and it is easy to lose an item out of the pocket while fiddling with keys to unhook them or open a door while attached.

Rated 5 out of 5áby JNMoore Great Nursing School/Clinical Bag
Very spacious with lots of room for a clipboard, stethoscope and lunch bag and books. I love the fabric, it's easy to clean. I got the plum colored bag with monogramming. The monogramming is very quaint, but adds a nice personal touch that isn't gawky. Definitely a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Verified Reviewer great carryon bag!
I love this bag! Love having an outside pocket for my water bottle, an easily accessible pocket for my travel documents, the "sleeve" to slip it over the handles of my roller bag! I can fit so much inside that it's actually a bit heavy to carry over my shoulder for a long time, thicker and/or padded handles would be a help. I only regret not getting it monogrammed when I ordered it, I was afraid to personalize it and then not like it!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Ogie Excellent Tote Bag for Travel
This tote has it all! It is very roomy, and when filled, it is easy to carry and store under the seat when flying. Both my husband and I purchased one - well worth the price. We've have already recommended this tote to our family and friends.

I found this bag to be designed very well. It has just the right pockets making it very organized. Very easy to carry over shoulder and sits upright when setting on the floor. Thanks LLBean for another tremendous product.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Dell60 I have 2 of these!
I first purchased a red one of these bags 5-6 years ago. Then, I purchased another in black a little over two years ago. I love these bags! I am now thinking of purchasing for Christmas presents and wishing they came in more colors...
I have used these bags to travel on the airlines and they fit perfectly under the seat or in the overhead. It is amazing how much you can put into them. I usually have this and my roller bag. I can fit my laptop, iPad, cellphone, my purse, snacks, one set of backup underwear (if I check my larger bag), and my 311 clear plastic container. After I get through security, I add a water bottle. The handles are nice and long making it easy to carry.
Love, Love, Love this bag!

Rated 5 out of 5áby WorldView Wonderful all-purpose tote
Bought this as an airplane under-seat tote. It will be excellent as a light, roomy carry-on for long flights. But just took it to hold ALL of my clothes for a weekend and it fit EVERYTHING - even my iPad, e-book, toiletries, shoes, 2 fleeces plus tops and slacks, etc. This bag is very light, opens up wide and seems very sturdily made. Plenty of pockets inside and out. So I join the long list of other happy customers. Just wish it came in more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LoyalBeanWannabee The Perfect Tote!
I have owned this bag (an earlier version) for about 7 years. I bought it as a diaper bag when I had a toddler and a preschooler. I quickly learned one can fit everything plus the kitchen sink in it (I'm one of those bring everything 'just in case' types). This bag has served us well. The lightweight material is extraordinarily durable. The wide base means it is super roomy. In the main pocket you can fit clothes for a year plus your dog's snow coat. It includes a small zipper pocket which is quite handy. On the front is a zip pocket/organizer panel that unzips on two sides - very roomy and this zipper design is really convenient. There are pen slots, another zip pocket, key clip, slip pockets for things like credit cards, etc... plus the main pocket itself. I used this for my "mom" stuff on outings. On one end of the bag is a mesh elastic water bottle pocket and on the other end a 3/4 zip around pocket, which will also securely hold a second water bottle. *Newsflash*: I've also carried a small umbrella in this pocket. On the back is a velcro slip pocket the width of the bag, great for quickly shoving flyers for PTA events you nod and smile about but have zero intention of involving yourself with. This bag repels dirt. If you need to launder it, toss it in the wash, let it air dry, and voila - brand new bag. We use ours as our go-to organizer bag on vacation and day trips and all these years later it looks the same as the day I received it. Best bag ever. I'm thinking of ordering another in black.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Verified Reviewer Durable work bag
I got this bag six years ago as a gift that I had picked out. I wanted a bag big enough for all of my work stuff, stethescope, work badge, keys etc. plus a change of clothes, my coat when I'm not wearing it, and my purse. This bag covers all of that! It's stood the test of time and despite being used daily (and often overloaded) for six years, it is still in great shape.
