Virtually indestructible, L.L. Bean's Boat & Tote Bags have been made in Maine since 1947. Sewn out of heavy-duty 24-ounce cotton canvas, these sturdy workhorses have reinforced flat bottoms and have been tested to hold an impressive 500 pounds! The classic carryalls come in four sizes and can be ordered with regular or long handles. Priced from $19.95 to $34.95. Bonus: monogramming costs just $8.
