Rated 2 out of 5 by Beanbear Quilted Shoulder Bag
I am very disappointed with this bag. I love the design
of the bag but will be returning it. The fabric of the bag
collects every piece of lint in the air as well as from any
clothing that I wear. The bag fabric does not easily release
the lint even when you use a lint roller to try and clean the lint from the bag.
The bag fabric holds the lint very tightly and makes it
almost impossible to restore the bag to look like
it did before any lint attached to it.
I would not recommend this bag. I think
LL Bean should definitely make this bag, but use the shiny
fabric that is used in women's winter coats. That fabric
will not attract or hold lint captive. Please LL Bean
make this bag again using a different fabric.

It's just right for a man to carry on the plane for long trips. I kicked it all over the floor on a trip to Europe and the lint just brushed off. Not a problem. Messenger strap essential for travel and the size is just right for an i pad and other stuff you need while on the plane. Get on while you can!

I thought that the other reviewers had to be wrong & that I could tolerate small amounts of lint etc. They were right it's a magnet for lint & fur. The bag itself is very well made, the straps are very sturdy, but the lint magnet is too much for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Limestone Follow-up to my initial review
After having used this purse for several months, I need to downgrade my original review to one star. In addition to the pilling mentioned by others, the threads have actually pulled through in several spots. It has been relegated to a bag that I "stuff stuff" into in the closet. I would not recommend this product to others.

Great purse. The over the shoulder strap is also across the body.
I bought the yellow/green. FANTASTIC color. People complimented this purse.
BUT after carrying it for two whole weeks, Th puffy clouds and the outside fabric got to me.
The fabric is kinda weird and catches everything "cept men and money" as the old saying goes.This would really show up on a darker color.
I kept feeling I had to go over puff after puff to find something.
On the other hand, the color is beautiful. The purse size is right on, and the pockets (in and out) are really nice. Even my daughter likes it.
Should you purchase? The price is right so the decision is all up to you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by keeponkeepinon Love It !!!
One of the best -- if not THE best -- shoulder bags I've ever had! Was just going to use it for travel, but now it's my go-to everyday-everywhere bag: super soft and comfortable...feather-weight...extra-roomy with a place for everything-and-then-some...speedy access to whatever I need to retrieve when I'm in a rush...large capacity but looks relatively slim and trim...incredibly well made...sturdy, smooth zipper action made even easier with generous leather pull tabs. And thus far no problem with bag attracting lint or my Beagle-Boy's ever-shedding fur.
Bought one in slate blue (a lovely muted blue steel-gray) which I'm using now, and black. Wasn't fond of the fuchsia or jade citron colors, but love the bag so much would gladly buy other colors such as hot pink, summer green, dark green, true red.
Thank you for another winner, Beanie!

This bag is really big, lightweight & would be nice for travel. It would also make a great diaper bag since it is so roomy & lightweight. I had planned to use it as a every day bag but decided to just keep it for travel & times when I need to carry a lot of stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Northwesterner1 Great bag
I love this bag! It is attractive, roomy and soft, and the adjustable shoulder strap is comfy and versatile. It does tend to pick up fuzz, but taking a roller to it periodically keeps it looking good. It's the perfect size for both weekends and work days, and is well-padded for my iPad. I've tried a lot of bags, and this is my favorite.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ereader It is a cat hair and lint magnet
I like the size and the crossbody capabilities. It would be nice to have another couple pockets inside. But what really annoys me about the bag it that it now looks, after two days use, as though it is actually cat fur. We have three cats, but even so, I've never seen fabric attract so much fur. And today I came back from shopping and there was a long blonde hair on it, which no one I know has, so it is attracting human hair, too. The fabric also pills, which is evident after two days of use. I don't have plans to send it back, yet, but I would not recommend this bag.
