Everyday Lightweight Tote, Plaid is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 136.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Beach Tote I have several of these lightweight totes. They are great for carrying all my "stuff" to the beach. Easily holds a couple of huge towels, reading materials, reading glasses and water bottles. I love the fact that the sand doesn't "stick" to the fabric, and when they get a bit grimy, they come through the washing machine in great shape. New Jersey is looking at getting rid of plastic bags in grocery stores, so I just picked up a few of these when they were on sale, so I could jump on the "renewable" bag phenomenon. I have also given these bags (with monograms) as gifts to folks. They are always greatly appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! Absolutely love this tote! I'm fact,this is my second one. Put my Stewart plaid away for the season and am now using the new one for summer. They are durable and SO practical. I have one of those purse inserts that I can pull out in a flash to change purses, but rarely do because I love this tote. Even with my insert there is still room for a water bottle,small purchases, or mail that I pick up from the mailbox as I come home. Wish you would consider a sunflower or yellow daisy pattern for summer. That would be so cool! I would be the first one in line to purchase one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unisex Plaid Suitable for Men I almost did not order the Everglade Plaid because the green on my monitor looked a little pastel for my taste, but when it arrived it was a slight bit deeper and is suitably masculine enough for me and would be unisex enough for women I would think. I have several of the Everyday Lightweight Plaid Totes in both large and medium, and I buy them if the colors are not too feminine. I don't really need more but I can always use them for something, be it travel, storage, errands, etc. Am liking this print enough to want the matching Adventure Duffle which would be so easy to spot when retrieving luggage at the airport.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Carryall I like the size, not too big but holds a lot of “stuff”. Being on the road all the time I seem to carry anything I may need during the day. The only problem is trying to locate something inside (especially while driving)! Maybe if there were compartments or another pocket for smaller items it may be easier. Or a smaller, matching tote to place inside to hold small items. Had a wristlet and bag in Buffalo Plaid which worked well. Only peeve is that for some unknown reason LLB feels the need to blast their name on everything. It’s gone way beyond overboard with the logo. Not a product enhancement at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect tote Bought first one earlier this month, just bought another in a different plaid. Material is similar to backpack material -- very sturdy yet lightweight and should last a long time. The plaids are cheerful, the outer open pocket and inner zippered pocket are handy. The key lanyard, located inside of the inner zippered pocket, is just the right length -- long enough to use the house key without having to unclip it. I'm happy with the handle lengths. Please don't change them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag for on the go I got this bag to bring to work because it zips and it's just the right size for my needs. I have the medium as well. I recommended this tote to my friends as well. The ONLY request I have from L.L. Bean is to give us the option for the length of the handles, like on the Boat & Tote, the option for longer handles which I love so I can put it on my shoulder as I walk into work. Even possibly have the option for an X Large did as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect tote for travel I purchased this tote in Medium to use as my personal item on a trip to Ireland. Love the zip top and it fit perfectly under the seat on the plane. It held a change of shirt/pants, book, jewelry pouch, small crossbody purse, and a water bottle. It was a great bag to bring along each day as we toured the countryside, protecting my stuff from the daily drizzle. Wish the interior zippered pocket was a little bigger. Strap length was OK but would be tight with a winter coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight tote I love the color !! I purchased the aqua/white/navy plaid. The color was bright and cheerful for summer. I use it to carry my lunch/work stuff/ purse and water bottle. It has plenty of room for everything. It also has an inner pocket with a zipper and a key chain for keys. The fabric feels thin but don’t worry it is very durable and spills clean nicely. The comfortable straps are easy on the shoulder, for me I have to park far from my job so I’m carrying my bag for a few blocks and no discomfort. It’s a fantastic bag I recommend it.
