LL Bean Reviews
Beautiful heritage brand. Love their sweaters and their boat n tote bags. Nancy Meyers swears by their cotton sheets too, or so I read in NY Mag's The Strategist.
Both of my kids have LL Bean backpacks and lunchboxes. We really like the quality of those. However, in my experience, the clothing doesn't last.
LL bean has some of the best outerwear i’ve worn! although the price point is on the higher side, their clothing is high quality and lasts a long time. and they actually keep you warm! my favorite piece from them would be the sherpa coat. it reaches to my knees so it keeps me warm when the weather starts getting colder.

I've had my L.L. Bean 'Boat and Tote' bag for probably over ten years and it's held up like new with minimal wear and tear. the canvas material is easy to wash too which is a major plus. Perfect abg for weekend travel. The style feels timeless
The Bean Boots are a timeless classic and great for rainy days/snow. I got the goretex padded and thermal lining and they’ve kept me warm and dry on those torrid days of weather. Mine have lasted over 10 years and counting. Pretty iconic look in the Northeast, highly recommend
Pretty much everyone that lives in New England owns something from LL Bean. My most recent purchase was a zip up lightweight flannel hoodie in beautiful scotch plaid pattern. It's my go to spring and fall lightweight jacket. It's super soft, well made and comfortable. You can't go wrong with LL Bean, they make quality stuff that lasts.
I've been buying LL Bean products since the late 1990s. The quality and longevity of the products are unparalleled. I'm happy that they expanded in the past several years to include plus sizes and to diversify their models in their catalogs and on their website.
I’ve had a pair of short, fleeced line winter boots from LL Bean for a few years now and they have yet to disappoint. They’re very warm and comfortable and easy to slip on and off. Toes can get a little cold in extreme temperatures but hey, that’s with any shoe really. I also had to return a separate pair of boots which seemed to take a really long time to process but customer service was very helpful when I called to inquire
They used to replace any item for free! I loved my thigh-high boots from them. But I don't think they do this any more :( I also loved their plaid shirts and used them as jackets.
My go-to bag for the summer is the Hunters tote bag - open top! It is rubber on the inside so if anything spills or leaks - easy clean up! There is an option to monogram the bag and a variety of colors. I have the large and extra large. The large is perfect for lake days, pool days, going anywhere with kids. The XL is good for traveling because the straps are a little longer which makes it more convenient to carry.
