"The on-line representation helped me to make my decision. The opened bag showed that it was sturdy enough to maintain shape. The lined interior showed some clothing inside which provided a good estimate to how much could be packed inside this small 16"inch tote. It provided a zippered compartment outside for my tablet & phone. It was small and compact and easy to carry either by hand or on my shoulder. The padded adjustable strap was comfortable. It's compact size makes it easy to keep near in a crowded airport. It fits under the seat on a plane. I love the material and the accent of brown, makes it contemporary in style. Very well made and high quality material. I will buy the matching bigger pieces."
"I bought this bag at a local department store after seeing it and loving it on the spot. I'm so glad ebags carries it if I need another.
What it has: very sturdy fabric, will repel water and protect contents. I have the olive and it's very nice.
What it doesn't have: wheels to take up underseat room on an airplane, a handle that eats up interior space, interior pockets which also eat up packing space (I'd rather organize my own stuff in my own way).
This is a sample of what I was able to pack: 7 blouses, 2 jeans, 2 tee shirts, underwear and socks for 7 days...and all of this will fit under the seat. Using 2 of these bags, I could pack for an entire trip.
If you just have to wheel things, then this is not your bag. If you can carry a bag, this bag will hold ALOT, is durable, and is the best I've found."
"My husband wanted a carry-on bag that looked classy and had very few (if any) outside pockets, and was at least as large as his previous bag. His previous bag had several outside pockets that he never used (wasted space and weight). He wanted only one large interior main section. This bag states it has both a padded laptop holder as well as an outside zippered pocket. We were happy to find out that it does not have a padded laptop holder - only a zippered pocket in the front and a main interior section. The zippered pocket in the front would not be large enough for the average-sized laptop. He can use the interior section for his camera and other carry-on items and keep his toothbrush and safety razor separated in the front zippered pocket. We got the chocolate brown and it looks very nice! The back of the bag has a cross strap so you can put it on top of your larger rolling luggage and put the pull handle through it as you walk. It has a padded shoulder strap for whenever you must carry it."
