"The reviews on this item were so positive that I was actually a little skeptical until I actually had it in my hands. First, it really looks great. Professional. Second, it had plenty of storage room (hard to believe this is the "small") and was very well organized. Rather than repeating many of the other reviews let me comment on two features that others seemed to miss. There is a zipper pocket, behind the two in the front that had built in storage pockets for pens, eye glasses, passports, and other documents that were incredibly handy in my recent overseas travel. Also, the whole bag slips over the handle on my rolling bag so it was a secure "roll" through the airports and over the cobble stones of southern Sweden. The flexibility of the fabric allowed me to stuff last minute shopping into the bag (although the weight limit is always an overseas concern). The shoulder strap came in handy when I wasn't allowed to bring my roller bag on board the plane and ended up having to carry this bag. I could use it as a cross body bag and to hold it to support the bag's weight rather than overburden my arthritic shoulders. (a back pack would not have been better). My only suggestion is that a luggage tag would have been move helpful than the monkey as corporate symbol -- but what the heck, it was cute. Highly recommend this bag from a fussy bag person. While I had intended it only for travel, it's usefulness has wormed its way into daily use."
"I needed a small tote to use in conjunction with my carry-on suitcase since I don't check luggage when traveling. The bag has a wide sleeve on the back that allows the tote to slip over the arm of my carry-on suitcase and sits on top securely.
The main compartment of the bag is large and holds a large amount of items and is also padded on the inside. There is also a separate padded compartment on the inside for your laptop or ipad. There are lots of pockets that hold all your incidental items. I love the 2 large zippered pockets on the outside that hold my earphones and ipod. Plus, it fits under the airline seat.
When not traveling, I use this bag as an everyday tote for work. It holds everything, my lunch, ipad, workout clothes.
This is a versatile, tough tote that has multiple uses and I would purchase it again."
"love this so much I have it in 3 colors. accomodates several changes of clothes, toiletries, everything you could take on a long weekend trip, plus all your personal accessories, I've even packed another kipling inside for shopping , fits under airline seat. the perfect carry on."
