Rated 5 out of 5 by ApricotAlma Great Traveling Companion
My trusty no-frills backpack was no longer serviceable so I decided to replace it with a carry-on bag that would hold my Thinkpad X220 laptop, purse etc. Since I have a Sportsman's Carry-on bag, I thought this rucksack would be a great addition to my traveling bag. It hold ALOT! I am very satisfied with this purchase. The only change I would have made was to monogram it; otherwise, it has plenty of nooks and crannies to fill your toiletries, purse, lunch etc. It fits easily underneath the airline seat in-front of you. It is not heavy and I think it has great style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MikeinChathamNJ Nice pack but pricey
I like this pack - lots of pockets, nice leather, very stylish, and I love the ability to get it monogrammed. It seems like it will last awhile. I still wrestle with how much I paid, however. But I haven't seen anything else this classy looking anywhere, let alone for my sub $100 price target. The price is the only thing preventing me from giving it a 5 star rating. I got it in blue - and love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 Best backpack
I have been looking for a replacement backpack for the LLBean I have been using for the past 3 yrs. Finally, returned to LLBean for a new and sturdier model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StudentReview Great college back pack
I bought this back pack last year and it has held up very well. I get complements on this thing all the time because it looks so unique compared to most school bags you will see. Its definitely going to last me for the foreseeable future. I got it in blue and the color has held up well to use and weather. Its easy to clean too

Rated 4 out of 5 by BLL1475 Comfortable and big
I love this pack. It's roomy and the straps are comfortable and it looks good. I have gotten a lot of compliments since I started using it about how great it looks. It has lots of pockets for little things and a padded compartment for your small laptop. All in all a great bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JakeN A Quality Backpack for every Need
This backpack is outstanding. I have had it for almost a year now and have had no issues. It lugs my college textbooks, notebooks and laptop with ease along with anything else I may have. The laptop pocket is big enough for my 15in MacBook Pro anything bigger probably wouldn't work. The styling is wonderful as well. I have the Navy and I have received more complements on this pack than anything else I own. It also is professional looking so I have no qualms about bringing it to interviews or any other meetings of importance. I have also used it as a carry-on for overseas travel where it was excellent able to hold everything I may need including a change of clothes. Easily could be used for an overnight trip, even a two nighter isn't out of the question. Overall great pack.

Rated 1 out of 5 by OutdoorGuy18 Cheaply made for the Price
I am a frequent Bean customer, have purchased very many Bean products and this is my first complaint. This product is so very cheaply made, especially for the price. Although Bean products are usually on the pricey side, the quality of materials and manufacturing is always high. But this Rucksack is of very poor quality, and I would be disappointed with the quality if this product cost only $49 bucks let alone well over $100. I doubt this Rucksack will last for even a year, under light use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnaA Best Backpack Ever!
Don't be daunted by the price. This backpack is so worth it! I got the rucksack in navy, and it is so handsome. It can transition from professional to hiking with ease, and it always looks classy. The quality and space are really its best features, however. After having it almost two months, I just discovered yet another pocket. It carries more than I ever thought possible while still being ridiculously comfortable on my back. All of the zippers, fastenings, and handles are high quality, and I doubt if they will ever break. Even though my 17" laptop is too big for the strap over the pocket, it still fits beautifully. This backpack is currently serving as my portable office, and doing so very admirably. I would recommend this to anyone, any age. Its a classic piece that will serve me well for many years to come.
