LL Bean Canvas Duffle Bags

Vintage BEAN LL Bean Canvas and Leather Duffle Bag

Always love finding these bags and wanted to post a couple of examples. Most common colors are brown and duck (tan), but I’ve also seen blue in later models. The heart-shaped handles are unmistakable and a hallmark of LL Bean bags. They’re used on the all-leather tote, ¬†wood carriers and even certain canvas (boat and tote) models. Contrary to popular belief, ¬†or despite what listings say, the bottom is not leather. Instead, at least in the versions I’ve found, synthetic like vinyl. I am not saying there aren’t leather bottom versions out there, but at least in the case of these ( and the one is a rather old, script logo label), they are synthetic bottoms.
