"I love Rick Steve's info on European Travel. I wouldn't travel in Europe without one of his books. I had previously purchased his cosmetic bags and loved it.So when I was looking for a carry on bag that will hold my laptop and reading material, i thought I would give this bag a try. It wasn't really that cheap but I thought if it was endorsed by Rick, it must be pretty durable. I was wrong. Like the other reviewers, I had problems with the pull up handle - it just would not lock into place. Also the bag does not have any clip-on rings that I could clip my keys to. I thought this would be helpful. For what I paid for this bag, I was disappointed with it."

"Primarily bought for my 70 yr old mother to use instead of carrying a heavy shoulder bag. Has made getting through airports sooo much easier for my parents. They are easily able to pack all the medications, books, and documents in the tote. Fits easily under the seat."

"I purchased it for a trip to Scandinavia last summer but had difficulty packing it because it is stiff and doesn't open flat to pack an extra days clothing in case the checked luggage was delayed -- which it was! Once in the aircraft it was difficult to place under the seat and virtually inaccessible once placed there. Last month I got it out for air travel in the US, and discovered a sizable hole on one of the outside pockets, possibly made by one of the winter basement tenants that the felines missed. I don't know what the fabric is, or if it can be repaired. It would probably be okay to carry a laptop, books or magazines, but I didn't find it satisfactory for my needs."

"I thought this would be a quality item, but it is not. I took it on my vacation this summer, which was the first time that I used it. All of the zippers began pulling apart, when any pressure is put on them. Also, the telescoping handle doesn't stay up. So, when wheeling the bag behind you it collapses and the unit either runs into your feet or stands up on all 4 corners. I will be returning this item for a full refund."

"I took this bag to Orlando... excited about using something that had Rick Steves's name on it. First time out.. the handle wouldn't stay up and thus couldn't push it... always had to pull, and even then the handle wouldn't cooperate. I dumped it at the airport, and bought something that would work to get me home."

"Laptop section in the bag barely holds the laptop and extremely difficult to get in and out during security checks. No room for files and the section takes up about half the bag. Front section zipper is the wrong way around--zipping down and around might look good on paper but it next to useless when you are actually traveling. Opening the front section up exposes everything you have in there and allows anything on top to fall out. Front pockets along the base of the bag can barely hold a business card. Pretty much useless as a travel tote. Durable, but useless. Looking for a top opening soft wheeled tote designed for actual travelers."

"great looking bag, perfect shape,size and weight for what I wanted. I will be using this bag starting next month for 4 trips in the next six months, one to Europe and one trip to South America. I think the fabric dosent look as sturdy as Id like but that remains to be seen and maybe the lighter fabric is the trade off for the lighter weight. I wish it had a few more interior dividers although I like the pockets and dividers on the outside. The interior finishing was cheap and sloppy under the back slipcovered foam piece that cushions the telescoping hardware where it isn't openly visible and I think being sloppy where it's not easily visible is an unplesant trick where I loose respect for a product. Over all, I think I'll find it a nice useful piece. P.S. the bag was shipped to me without the shoulder strap shown in the picture and which I specificallly need. I called the manufacturer directly and they sent me the replacement within a week."

"I'm still deciding if I'm going to keep it: ordered 3 different styles/brands from different websites & will try to do a trial pack to see which best accommodates all my stuff that I like to access during a flight, & need to hand-carry (meds., camera equip, change of clothes in case of lost luggage, book to read, computer?, etc.). Also wonder if this isn't too large: it's very iffy as to whether it meets British Airs measurement limitations (for example). I do like the separate area, I suppose meant for computer, but I like it for my extra clothes and meds that I can keep neat & don't need to access on flight. It's the heaviest & largest of the 3 I'm trialing (6.4 lbs.)."

"I love this bag. It has traveled the world with me! Fits in the overhead easily. Depending upon where I am traveling will determine how I pack it. Nevertheless is my main travel bag whether I check another bad or not."
