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!
With that in mind, let's take a look at some of our favorite American made items from L.L. Bean.
L.L. Bean Products Made in the USA
L.L. Bean puts extra effort into finding American made items, and they are an easy source for Made in USA gifts that will last and last.
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.
This durable but lightweight pack basket would make a great gift for your favorite fisherman. The sturdy shape holds their fishing gear including poles and nets and the hard sides make it a better option than standard soft backpacks. Made in Maine, this handwoven pack is available in three sizes.
Dreaming for the return of warmer weather? Get ready to enjoy every minute of it with this quilted hammock from L.L. Bean. The fabric is made of a mildew-resistant acrylic and features a striped design on one side and a coordinating solid color on the other. No sturdy trees suitable for hammock hanging? No problem! L.L. Bean also offers a hammock stand.
L.L. Bean offers a selection of braided wool rugs, made in North Carolina by Capel. These high quality rugs are available round, oval, or rectangle, and in multiple sizes. There are even a few all weather options available for outdoor or indoor use.
With an ultra-long beam distance of over 250 feet, this durable, waterproof, and super-bright LED head lamp is perfect for all outdoor adventures. It is made in the USA from US and imported components.
For 70 years Nalgene water bottles have been made in the USA. L.L. Bean carries several sizes of Nalgene water bottles, including wide mouth. All Nalgene water bottles are leak proof, BPA free, and impact resistant.
L.L. Bean's high-quality, all-wool blankets are exclusively woven by legendary Pendleton Woolen Mills. Pendleton has been manufacturing blankets in the USA for over 150 years. These blankets are heirloom quality.
I absolutely LOVE L.L. Bean's Boat and Tote canvas bags! They come in 4 sizes, 2 lengths, and are available with or without a zip top. I use my extra large tote the most. In the summer it is our beach bag, in the winter we stuff it with snow gear when we go on winter outdoor travel adventures. These bags are durable! They are made in Maine.
Waterhog floor mats and door mats are designed to keep surfaces clean and dry all year round. They are perfect for entryways and breezeways. They are stain resistant and dry quickly. I love the many sizes and colors that are available!
L.L. Bean's All Weather Furniture Collection includes a vast selection of outdoor furniture pieces and sets made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). HDPE is highly durable, and doesn't warp, crack, or splinter light wood. It even wipes clean easily. All pieces are manufactured in the USA.

Is there a manufacturer who makes LL Bean style clothing in the US?
LL Bean is the BEST! Their Bean boots are virtually indestructible!
are the clothes online made in America?
No, L.L. BEAN clothing is not American made.
The Waterhog mats are the best!!!!
Love LL Bean. Have several of there made in USA products! So it’s hard to pick but I would say it’s my blanket that I use literally every night. Already on my second one! Simply because I use it so much over the years, first one lasted way longer then any import would have! I have a basket, mug, crock, ornament, and lots more made in USA from ll bean. If only there duck boots came big enough! 🙁
The vast majority of bean products are NOT made in the USA – despite all their marketing and the origins of the co. So be very wary before buying.
I had a pair of bean boots that I wore completely out. Hated to see them go.
They had a lifetime warranty. So until recently you did not ever have to let them go.
This is great news! I will support them more regularly!
I really like LL Bean I remember when they were just known for their outdoor things they have really branched out. Love the hammock!
The dog beds. My mother and grandmother worked in the factory where they were made.
I love the Chenille basket. It would have a multitude of uses at our house.
I love the quality of the cotton knit shirts.
These are not made in the US.
You are absolutely correct. Made in china
