So many bags are heavy before you even put anything into them! I was looking for a lightweight bag that could serve multiple functions on 2 upcoming trips and still be able to act as a carry on for the airlines. I also wanted a shoulder bag so that my hands are free to hold onto kids, wheel a suitcase etc. It looks like it will be perfect for my use and the zippered pockets, especially the large one on the front of the bag, can function as my wallet/purse and not have to carry a separate bag. Having a zippered closure on the main compartment and other zippered pockets is really important to me as I hate open bags where things can fall out and get lost. The color is nice but I would have preferred the solid purple/black version but that was on backorder and would not arrive until after my first trip. I've always been happy with LL Bean's quality so I'm sure this will hold up well

The fabric was too thin. No organization inside. Liked the color. Carried it one week and put it up.

I had the same reaction as the other positive reviews: good quality, great color and print, big enough for large laptop, many useful pockets. I tried using the "purse pocket" for credit cards, ID, cash and coin, but found it cumbersome, although it might just take practice, but it would have been better if the zipper went on 3 sides of that pocket, not just two.
As for KCtravels' complaint about attaching it to the telescoping handles of another case, that just needs an explanatory tag or photo. I figured it out by accident: on the back side #which is not shown in any photos#, the black "stripe" which looked just decorative, can be pulled away so that it slips over the luggage handles, and the Velcro reattaches between the two sides of the telescoping handles to keep it stable. Sorry, should have taken a photo, it's hard to describe.
I would also have preferred at least one divider inside the big main section of the tote because things got lost in such a large cavity. But it was a wonderful place to stash coat/scarf/gloves while traveling to warm beach vacation.

I love this tote! It's just the right size for me to carry all my things ....I carry a small purse that I can take into the stores but like to have my iPad and camera with me and well as a bottle of water. Plenty large enough to take along my 15" lap top if needed. This bag is light weight but study enough to hold all my heavy belongings....the color and design are beautiful...nice for spring....

I ordered this tote three days before my trip, and when I received it, the extra shipping charges were worth every penny. The print is bright but not obnoxious, and there are so many pockets. The straps, however seem a little long, but good for carrying on your shoulder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by happygranny6 just what I was looking for
I was very pleased with this purchase- the bag is sturdy, well-made and attractive. It's roomy and has compartments inside. I wanted it for a cruise and will use it as my all-purpose "tote". I especially like that it has a secure closure for the top of the bag and long enough straps to make it easy to carry over the shoulder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sydneylu Color is misleading
This is a beautiful and well-made bag. However, the color is much more green than it appears in the photos. I would definitely call this color teal-green, not teal-blue. I got this to use as a nursing bag in my job as a home-health nurse because I thought it would look good with my work uniforms. Unfortunately, the color combination is not as pretty as I had hoped. I am going to keep this bag though, because it is a great size and it has lots of pockets which are perfect for organizing and storing my work equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mrsedugator Great for a twin baby bag
I love the lightness of this bag. The fabric is durable and the bottom even seems to have a foam lining to make it stiffer but not rigid. The front and back panels of the bag are lined in aqua, the same color as the flower pattern on the front. The lining is stitched into the seam-tape enclosed seams. Very nice. The straps are nice and long enough for a taller person to be able to use. I'd love if D-rings were added to the side for an optional cross body use. Ill probably add them myself.

Just received my monogramed tote bag and love it! Its the perfect size for bringing my belongings for my overnight job. It is light-weight and very attractive. It has multiple zip pockets to stay organized and wide enough to even pack extra clothes. The monogram is pretty small and located on the side of the bag in between the handles but I chose a dark color so it can still be seen. Can't wait to get the toilet bag that will be color-coordinated and fit inside too. The color is a little darker than the picture shows. It almost looks more green than teal but it is very pretty.

I LOVE THIS BAG!! !My husband bought me this bag to go on vacation. It works great as a carry on for the airlines.I could fit everyting I needed and more. The size is Great, the color is perfect. Love that it can also be used as a beach or pool bag, because of the plastic liner. Was a little worried about the handles tearing while carrying it with all the weight. But this BAG met and exceeded my expectations. I also love all the outside pockets. I am even going to order one for my sister who travels alot. I highly recommend this bag!!! The price might seem high to most people, but consider the quailty and durability of this bag, the price is perfect!
I am even going to order L.L. Bean suitcases when my old set wears out.
