Why We Love It
Introduced as Bean’s Ice Carrier way back in 1944, the Boat and Tote was billed as a bag made of builders’ canvas for hauling ice “from car to ice chest.” Today you can spot it doing heavy lifting everywhere from grocery stores to gardens, from beaches to bedroom closets. Tested to hold up to 500 pounds, it’ll carry more than you can carry. We promise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DM49085 from Boat and Tote zip top Love these bags. They hold a lot and the sides stand up so it’s far easier to see inside or to add beach towels, or tablet or whatever. Would love to see the addn of a key leash tho. You had custom ones at one time. I called to see if key leashes were option in those but csr didn’t know and made no effort to find out. Sadly Now customs have been deleted.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CitySam from I miss the custom totes This bag almost works, but the straps are too short. Short straps are fine on the large size, but on the medium, I like to throw it over my shoulder. PLEASE bring the custom totes back. I would get so many compliments on my colors combinations, I could pick all the features I liked, and they were so fun to make!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NEtoFL from Canvas tote I have 3 boat totes from Llbean that are more than 20 years old and still in use. I bought this for someone in CA who did not have a canvas tote. During this time of pandemic, I wanted something made in America (still made in Maine!). Something I really like about the newer bags is the zipper top. This is a great tote for families that bring a lot of stuff with them It lasts forever and is beautiful (especially monogrammed).

Rated 3 out of 5 by northleftcoast from Bring Back Custom!!! I have a medium custom from several years ago (more than 6), with the pocket (which is a NECESSITY for me) and long handles. I really want long handles again, but already this "medium" is larger than the medium I own. It's not so much larger that I wouldn't order it, but I want to choose the colors/pattern of them and have long handles. Please!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by PennBushman from Good bag...no substitute for customs Still confounded as to why the custom totes were discontinued. Glad to have a couple of monochromatic options, but doesn't have all the features or sizes I'd add to the custom totes I used to order. Also, these are constantly out of stock and somehow take longer to make than the customs did. Almost as infuriating as the cheap materials, poor construction and wacky sizing of the 'archival' clothing from the signature line. What the heck is going on with LL Bean??

Rated 5 out of 5 by PennysMom from Well Made Due to Covid, I stopped carrying my designer bags due to frequent use of hand sanitizer. I started looking for a tote that has good structure, can stand alone on its own and well built. So glad I found this tote. The size is perfect for everything (With Covid, we all carry more items than before). It has a top zipper that allows closure. Love the outside pocket, it's perfect for cellphone. Style is very classic and understated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TKtraveler from Not what I thought Disappointed. Did not notice from the pictures in the listing that there's a large flap of fabric hanging on the inside for expansion or to utilize the zipper. I find this a hinderance in using it for a work bag as I had planned ~ I can't easily get my files in/out. My mistake I guess. Thought this was like the standard stand up boat bags that were firm to the top, no flimsy excess on the interior. Guess I need one without a zipper. I'm sure it's a great bag for most people, just a let down for my intentions.
