Some things never go out of style. And one bag that has truly stood the test of time is none other than LL Bean Boat and Tote.
The durable canvas bag has been around since 1944 (making it 78 years old, mind you) when it was designed to carry ice. In reality, more than 350,000 bags are sewn each year in Maine and every tote is made from 100% American materials.
According to LL Bean, the iconic bag can support up to 500 lbs. thanks to its substantial volume of 24 oz. cotton canvas: “We use the same #4 duck canvas used in conveyor belts because of its incredible strength; it just wears down like iron. No other canvas comes close.“The brand also reinforces the overlapping seams with heavy-duty T69 bonded nylon thread.
