áby RuletheProust Done after second use...
I had high hopes for this duffle and, upon seeing it, I thought that it was everything I was looking for: maximum airline carry-on specs, minimalist style, and seemingly durable construction. The canvas material the bag is constructed of is, to me, the perfect balance of weight and strength.
On my second use (and in the middle of a trip) two weeks after receiving the bag, however, one of the leather tabs that attaches the shoulder strap to the bag began to tear off. And no, I wasn't carrying bricks or lead weights.
The bag is of course covered by LL Bean's warranty, but I wish I received a functional bag instead of having to deal with the hassle of a return. I am not certain a replacement will remedy the problem given that the defect appears to stem from a design flaw; the leather tab is not double reinforced and simply too thin and flimsy to be dependable.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Orpheus Exceeded expectations
This makes a great large gym bag, but I have used it on weekend trips as well. It looks even better in person and has nice details like leather trim around the side seams. I have wanted one of these bags forever and I was not let down; you can tell it will age beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5áby TheFarm18 Very good bag - great for plane carry-on
We've been buying these bags for family and friends for years. This year's medium bag seems a bit smaller than in years past, but quality is at least as good.

Rated 4 out of 5áby tarheelshopper7 Great Carry On Bag
I bought this bag as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. He travels for work. This bag is the perfect size for sitting on top of a roll-aboard suitcase. It comes with a shoulder strap. He was excited to get it and will be using it soon! The material looks like it should hold up for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5áby sheltiesara Made my son happy
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my son and he was thrilled. He commented on the nice "feel" to the bag and said that it was exactly what he wanted to take with him on a sailing trip he has planned for this spring.

Rated 5 out of 5áby GifterExtraordinaire Well Constructed and Good Size
This medium bag is an excellent size for the gym or a weekend pack. I bought two, the medium and the large, in black as Christmas presents for my boyfriend.He was thrilled! The bottom is good solid leather, and the clips are updated to brass, which is sturdier than some previous reviews stated. The large pack is good for at least a 5 day trip. This is a great product at a much lower price than all-leather options (but equally well-constructed and stylish!).

Rated 5 out of 5áby Masterful Great bag for boyfriend
Got this bag for my boyfriend who spends the night once a week. It's really a gorgeous piece of casual luggage that certainly serves it's function. Would definitely recommend this bag. Might even pick up a small one for myself!

Rated 5 out of 5áby BostonMatt Seduced by a bag!!
I had been watching this bag for a while. The kindling color had been on back order for a long time, and then some one at LLBean made a mistake and included this bag in the 20% off sale. I grabbed it, even though I had just been given a medium duffle bag for Christmas. I had thoughts of returning it, but then I foolishly opened the package. I reached into the plastic bag and could feel the supple leather bottom. I pulled it from the wrapping and I could smell the canvas wafting from the zipper opening. I was seduced! I simply loved the bag, it's so sturdy and attractive, I'm sure it will make me happy for years to come. I use the other bag for gym clothes, and I'll use this for travel.
