"problem with the handle did not lock in place and was not strong enough the bag would flip over sometimes the handle would not open thinking of returning it for another one i loved the pockets and organization but disappointed with the handle"
"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 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."
