Favorite LL Bean Products Made in the USA

L.L. Bean carries several American Made products. Here are some of our favorites. (via USAlovelist.com)

L.L. Bean is one of many American retailers dedicated to providing their customers with products manufactured in the United States. To be clear, not all of their products are made in the USA, but they do make an effort. On their website, L.L. Bean has this to say about their “Made in the USA” products:

L.L.Bean is committed to selling products that are manufactured under legal, safe and fair working conditions. To this end we have a well-established labor code of conduct that serves as the basis of our vendor relationships. The code of conduct is actively communicated and monitored through an internal monitoring process, supplemented by collaborative efforts with other companies and organizations.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of our favorite American made items from L.L. Bean.

The classic LL Bean boots are still made in the USA (in Maine to be precise) via USAlovelist.com
Classic L.L. Bean boots – L.L. Bean is known for their outdoor gear designed especially for cold weather. One of their signature products is this classic leather, rubber-soled boot, available in a variety of styles and colors for men, women, and kids. These boots were designed by L.L. Bean himself and are manufactured in the great state of Maine.

Have you seen the news stories lately about how L.L. Bean’s boots have suddenly become trendy fashion with long waits for delivery?  I’m glad to say that I still have mine from high school! 20+ years later, they still work, look, and feel great. I’m so glad this American made classic is back in style!
