    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 our iconic tote doing heavy lifting everywhere - from the grocery store to the beach, to the library and commuter train. Tested to hold up to 500 pounds, it’ll carry more than you can carry. We promise. Available in four different sizes with a secure zip top, it also makes a fantastic travel bag.
    Fabric & Care
    • Spot clean.
    • Heavy-duty 24 oz. cotton canvas.
    • Double-layer base.
    • Handles tested to hold up to 500 pounds.
    • Reinforced flat canvas bottom.
    • Overlapped seams are double-stitched with nylon so they won't rot or break.
    Additional Features
    • Handcrafted in Maine since 1944, one tote at a time.
    • Natural color with contrast-tone handles in your choice of lengths.
    • Add a monogram for a personal touch (or the perfect gift).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE!!! I purchased my first boat and tote (large with long handles) to accommodate school supplies. It held my nursing school books and binders easily as well as a lunch and a light jacket. I use this large one for weekend trips and camping. SUPER sturdy! Received my second boat and tote today (small zipper with regular handles)!!! I've been so happy with my first tote I had to have another! I will be using the small one as a purse! Can't wait to start using it and I'm looking forward to enjoying it for years to come! I'm already thinking of the next tote to add to my collection. Thank you for making such a high quality and practical product!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel tote I recently purchased the small zipper tote with the long handle before I went abroad for a vacation. It turned into the perfect every day purse while traveling. The zip top kept things inside, and the bag itself holds a lot (wallet, maps, camera, etc.)! My only recommendations (and I realize that this bag has been around for YEARS and is clearly an LL Bean mainstay) are to add a divider inside the bag to be able to separate things inside the bag, and to add a clip for keys inside the bag (mine kept getting lost in the "black hole" at the bottom of the bag b/c it's sooo roomy!). Overall, I am extremely pleased with my purchase. Thanks LL Bean!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back the custom I would like to start by saying, I LOVE my boat and tote bag. I've had the same bag for 2.5 years and it looks as good as the day I opened the box. I am however extremely disappointed to see L.L.Bean has discontinued the custom option. A beige base simply does not fit into my life style. I wanted to downsize my tote for a medium sized bag, as the rule of thumb goes the bigger the bag the more stuff you will carry. Let me tell you the extra large can carry A LOT, and my back says it's okay to carry less. I cannot however replace my bag with any of the current options. BRING BACK THE CUSTOM BOAT AND TOTE PLEASE!!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag but please bring back more options! I LOVE this bag. I have a monogramed one, my oldest daughter has a monogramed one, and even my husband has a monogramed one - each bag in a different color. They're amazing for keeping our gear for trips, school, sports, etc well organized. L.L. Bean used to offer tons of great color options but I'm sad to see they no longer do... I would love to order our youngest daughter a pink one (as her color-coordinated color for organizing has been pink), but I haven't seen a pink tote listed in over a year. Please bring back more color choices for the bags! I know I'm not the only one who misses them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heaviest Duty Bag Ever Made Have had tons of canvas bags—they all break a strap after a while. I found this while cleaning out my grandparents basement— it has to be at least 15 years old. First used it as a tool bag. Got a real tool bag for the sake of organization, then started using this to lug clay to and from the ceramics studio. Been using it for almost a year now (have even washed it a couple times) and it shows absolutely no wear or stress no matter how much weight—I'm usually carrying 40-80lbs of clay. Regular handles are nice and short so you can keep the weight closer to you rather than having the bag swing around while walking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Custom Totes There's no way to leave a review on the custom tote bag page. Please fix that. I bought two bags that I designed about 3 years ago. One was xlarge white canvas with a zipper top, blue handles, orange pockets (Broncos' colors!). The other is a large, dark blue bag with green handles and a pink pocket. Both arrived quickly. The quality was evident. After three years, they both still look great. The smaller one is used daily. it's been on planes, trains, boats, cars, etc. and is usually packed to the hilt. While the canvas has softened a little, the seams are still intact. I love these bags and may order another one just for variety. Thanks for keeping your standards high, L.L. Bean!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel bag I just received my newest large, zip-top with long handles tote. I am not a big person - just over 5 feet and just under 100 pounds. I use this as my second carry-on bag when traveling. A friend has the XL and also takes it as a carry-on. All the odds and ends get put in this bag. It is flexible, and will squish enough under the seat in front of you on the plane. The top lies flat against the inside of the bag when unzipped and adds a nice pop of color. I had this bag monogrammed and am very pleased with the embroidery (and I'm picky!). My husband will carry this bag. We plan to break it in with a trip out west later this spring.
