Rated 5 out of 5 by from BRING BACK THE BLACK! I have this bag from 2016. I still use it daily, however its starting to show its age. I've been waiting what seems like f o r e v e r for LL Bean to bring back this leather handled bag. Finally thay have, however not in solid black. I will continue to use my old one, please BRING BACK THE BLACK version of this bag. All black handles and canvas made this bag classy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous bag! Label is removable It’s a great bag! I have an older leather handle Boat and Tote from 2016 that is a workhorse. I’ve been waiting for LLB to bring back the leather handles. Finally! This new version is a bit different, but I still love it. Specifically, this new version is 2 1/2 inches taller than my older bag. My older bag is classic B&T colors. Handles are exactly the same. Canvas is the same material. The hurdle for me was the glaring LLB label. I’m a loyal customer, but I don’t want to advertise for anyone all the time or for free. I took the risk and removed the label. It was easy to do in under 5 minutes with a seam ripper. Now I love this bag! Yes, the stitching marks are visible from about 8 inches, but if you didn’t know to look for them you’d never notice. I think the marks will disappear over time as the canvas softens a bit. From a foot away, I see nothing. Honestly, I think it looks much classier without the label. I’ll use this bag as I did my older bag, as my everyday purse. I’m not bothered by the open top. You’ll want a couple small pouches or an insert for organizing if you also use it everyday because, like all B&T bags, it’s fully open inside. So glad Bean brought this bag back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy Bag for daily use I gave this bag to my daughter in law, especially for summer use. She carries it all the time. Handy with taking care of two kids. She loved the leather handles and green color. Excellent construction. Will last for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made in maine, beautiful comfortable handle I am so glad that the leather handle 'Made in Maine' tote is back in stock. I like the new color (I got the navy) and the medium size is timeless. The leather handle make the boat tote comfortable to carry everywhere. I did unstitch and remove the label sewed on the outside and I like it now 100% better now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy for Kids Stuff I gave this large leather handle bag to my daughter in law, who has a 9 and 7 year old. This is handy for carrying outdoor stuff in the car to sports or the lake. I also gave her a medium bag, which she uses daily for to carry everything she needs around town. She liked immensely the leather handles and color choices. Hers were green. Very sturdy material and construction. Will last for many years.
