Our leather handle tote bag has the same iconic styling as our canvas tote, now with a pair of luxurious leather handles – crafted from the same premium full-grain leather we use in our iconic L.L.Bean Boots – to elevate the classic open-top design.
Introduced as the Bean's Ice Carrier way back in 1944, it was billed as a bag of builders' canvas for hauling ice "from car to ice chest." Today you can spot the Boat and Tote® doing heavy lifting everywhere from grocery stores to gardens, from beaches to bedroom closets. After nearly 70 years, it's still the toughest, most versatile tote you can buy, in cotton canvas so sturdy it can stand on its own. Tested to hold up to 500 pounds, it'll carry more than you can carry. We promise.
