Rated 5 out of 5áby jazmine Custom Large Tote
I ordered as a gift for my son. The bag was much more durable than I expected. Wonderful craftsmanship. The personlization looked great and he will enjoy it for boating and RVing with the family. Large enough to pack the whole days necessary items. Fantastic gift item for the upcoming holidays.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CCinIselin Perfect!
Two of my daughters are teachers, I ordered the large tote for each of them and had them monogrammed with one initial. The colors are beautiful to choose from. The bag is generous, sturdy and stylish. The canvas is sturdy without being heavy or awkward. I highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5áby MomB3 Love the Bags - BUT...
Why are the fun colors always sold out?? Pink, light blue, yellow, lilac are more often then not sold out, particularly in the in the x-tra large regular handle model. They are the PERFECT new baby/child gift year round. I have gifted over 25 bags and they are ALWAYS well received. The proof is in the use and with a large family such as ours, they are ALWAYS being used.
I understand that LL Bean is not expected to be a "fun, cool, trendsetting company" and if the color palatte was simiply red, green and navy, fine. Why then introduce a fun, current, color palatte only to under produce it? Forest green is NEVER sold out - big surprise - and it is disappointing as a regular customer to have something offered only to be unable to obtain it with any regularity.
I bought 3 bags last month, only able get 1 in color that I actually wanted. Now, I need to purchase another 3 and can't as my color choices are all sold out and I will not "make do" again.
How do you quantify the cost of lost opportunity? I want to spend my money here, tonight, but can't. Maybe the powers that be need to know that for a least a few of the LL Bean products, the availability of more colors would get more product sold. Especially in such a long standing and well received signature product.

These canvas totes are terrific. The only drawback for me is that even before I put anything into them, they are rather heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SACalderon Good for travel
We use this for car traveling. It keeps everything handy for grabbing
from the front seat while on long road trip, like from Texas to Seattle,WA. Long enough? LOL
I like the way it holds its shape, a strong bag.

Rated 5 out of 5áby JamesGrandmamma Best Bag Ever!
I have been buying these wonderful bags for a long time. I buy them for the grandchildren for overnight bags to Grandmamma's house and to tote their toys around - For the adults for briefcases and carryalls. I can not get over the sturdy canvas. They NEVER wear out. The monograming makes them such a special gift. The colors are beautiful. They wash well (I do them in the sink and hang to dry) - I would tell everyone to buy these bags. I bought the 1st one ever with a zipper and the zipper is so strong I know it will last as long as the bag! Thanks Again L.L. Bean for great product!

Rated 5 out of 5áby LuLuandZippy Our Family Loves the Boat Bags
Our family is a great fan of L.L. Bean boat bags. Every one of us has at least one. When we go to the beach for a week in the summer 12 boat bags fully loaded are carried up the stairs to begin our family vacation. At Christmas the boat bags are unloaded at our house as the family gathers. The bags have served us well for years. Thank you, L.L. Bean.

I purchased 2 of the bags for myself over 25 years ago and my children have LOVED using them. They are still in perfect condition even though we use them all the time. I purchased this bag for our daughter to use for her gym clothes or going to a friends house. I'm sure she will use it at least 25 years as well. Thanks so much for making a GREAT product!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby MomB3 Love This Bag but Frequently Unavailable
I have given this bag as a signature baby gift at least 20 times. More and more often I am stymied by the limited color choices or the lack of availability. Pinks and yellows in particular are frequently unavailable or sold out. Why is such an LL Bean staple ever sold out?

Rated 5 out of 5áby CanyonPrincess Amazing Bag
It's a cliche but this bag is just amazing. I work out of my truck and usually by the end of a day have papers, tools, and business detritus scattered everywhere.This bag just swallows everything up in magical Mary Poppins fashion and at the same time, stays sturdy and upright on the seat next to me so I can reach into it and know my checkbook or flashlight or whatever I put in it is still going to be where I expect it to be. Then, when I hop out for a business meeting or to see a contractor, I just grab the bag and not only is everything I need with me, it looks great. I'm officially raving now but what a terrific product. Wish I'd had it 10 years ago!
