Why did you choose this product?
I searched all over for a bag that meets the underseat size requirements for Spirit Airlines and ended up buying this one specifically for that purpose. It was great! Perfect size, held a lot of stuff. I believe it will hold up well to the rigors of travel. My only quibble is when the handles are converted to a shoulder strap, the attached padded section doesn't hit the top of the shoulder. If the bag is heavy, it can be really uncomfortable to carry....

Returning because I bought it as a set with the 17" roll aboard and it is too small. This item is okay. It doesn't open flat like a suitcase.Read More
I am using this as my carry on an adventure to Tanzania when I am only allowed 33 pounds total -Looks great and had plenty of compartments to carry my binoculars, camera, passport and travel papers. Have already recommended to my travel group who are going also.Read More
This bag looks great, is perfectly sized for airline carryon, folds flat, which is great when living out of a suitcase/hotel room. The only thing I'd change is the length of the strap. It could be a little longer when being carried over the shoulder. Not a big enough problem to send back, though.Read More
Wasn't sure if this bag was going to meet my travel needs but it turned out to be the best bag I packed. It can hold a little or a lot depending on your needs at any particular time. It expands to hold a lot. I like the light weight, yet durable material it was made of. Very convenient and easy to carry. It also slips easily onto your luggage handle.Read More
I really wanted this bag to work, but it didn't for 2 reasons. 1. the handles have velcro on them to hold them together which is OK until you combine them to make a long strap. Then the rough part of the velcro is exposed to catch on your skin or clothing. 2. there was something sharp sticking out of the fabric just below the zipper. Not sure if it was a wire or part of the zipper but I cut my finger on it. It is light weight & roomy but I sent it back.Read More
I purchased this bag to go under the seat for my flight on Spirit. It is perfect for that. The bag has enough but not too many, compartments and an outside zipper for easy access. My only problem is that I filled it so full I had trouble carrying it! Too bad it didn't come with wheels! I think this is a well made item and I love the expandable piece. It came in very handy when I purchased extra items on vacation. I had no problem with converting the handles to a shoulder strap and they did not bother me to use it that way.Read More
The convertable strap from handheld to shoulder has problems. Where the two parts join is where the two fasteners come together. Meaning they now rest on your shoulder and are not uncomfortable. I did have a removable soft wrap to put around them. However, even with the lightest possible clothes and other items such as cosmetics and a spare pair of light weight shoes, I would have preferred a bag, like others I've had, that gives you use both the shoulder and the hand straps.Read More
the handle is the secret of this bag's success - besides the light weight. It fits over the handle of my suitcase perfectly. All my comfort pillows, (orthopedic seat ring, deluxe neck support) fit in besides all the things you need in case they lose your luggage. It's easy to get into it during the flight when its under the seat in front of you, then easy to repack just before landing.Read More

How to Organize a Shoulder Bag
Carrying around a shoulder tote bag can pose a few problems. You may need a large shoulder bag to hold all the items you take with you when you're out and about. But if you just toss them all into the over-the-shoulder bag, you may not be able to find an item when you need it. Dumping everything into one compartment can also make your shoulder tote bag heavy and hard to carry. So take a few minutes to organize your shoulder bag. Storing every item in its own easy-to-access spot makes it a lot easier to find things quickly. A large shoulder bag with pockets and zipper compartments is ideal.

The small, hand-held leather clutch may also be referred to as a coin purse. Just large enough to hold your daily essentials -- a little cash, identification, a credit card or two, cell phone and a tube of lipstick -- the clutch is perfect for short trips to the store or a special evening out.
