This was thee smartest purchase I have made on Overstock so far. This garment bag lacks nothing. All the space you would expect plus some. I took a 5 day trip to Boston to "break it in". I couldn't believe that I got 5 days worth of clothes and personal items and shoes and belts and my ipod and books (yes, two books) in this "garment bag" and it was still compact enough to FIT ON THE PLANE!!! Yes, everything I just mentioned and it all fit on the plane in the overhead compartment. Okay, I admit that I had to take out the DVD I shoved in there at the last minute, but besides that? This bag is stylish and versatile and can handle the casual traveler as well as the jet setter. A must have.
AWESOME LOOKING BAG BUT AS ANOTHER REVIEWER NOTED, THE ZIPPER IS A WEAKNESS. AFTER ONLY A COUPLE USES (PURCHASED AS CHRISTMAS GIFT 07 - BROKE 5/08), THE ZIPPER GAVE WAY. i TALKED TO OVERSTOCK AND THEY HAVE NO WARRANTY PROGRAM AND WILL NOT ACCEPT IT FOR RETURN OR EXCHANGE SO I NOW HAVE TO TRY AND GET IT REPAIRED. OVERSTOCK DID OFFER $15 CREDIT FOR MY TROUBLES.
Excellent, we've used twice now and really like it. Well made and easy to move. Easily handles my suit, dress shirts, ties and her dresses for that evening out plus accessories. We've found that the brown "David King" brand leather luggage (on web) matches exactly and picked up a large carry-on and a sport duffle to handle about all of my needs for any trips.
Have had this bag for 5 years and use it routinely for 2-10 day trips. Have not had any zipper problems. The previous comment about the size of the mesh pockets in side don't make any sense to me. I am able to carry an extra pair of shoes, one shoe in each pocket, and all the socks for a 6-8 day trip. The pockets are in the bottom corners and allow for plenty of space. The zippered compartment n the front and back of the bag are roomy and allow me to carry my laptop and plenty of additional accessories without having to have a separate carry on. I rarely have to check this bag and it will fit in overhead bins as a carry on. I am about to purchase a second one for my wife.

Cons: look very carefully at the pictures provided - corner pockets are very shallow (0.5 inch deep). maximum you can put there is two pair of socks, inside cover is attached to the bottom seams instead of the usual top seams (when bag is flat on it's back) - this robes you of very valuable space, inside cover does not have a zipper all around bag's perimeter. Pros: Good materials, I'd buy it when design will be changed. I returned this bag unused.

Love the bag, but on our first trip using it the plastic locking mechanisms for holding hngers both broke. Had them replaced with metal ones, and have used it several times since with no problems. The leather outside holds up well to rough handling on airlines.

I was so happy to receive this garment bag, because it was very beautiful. Unfortunately, I only used the garment bag once yes (1) time and the outer zipper broke just like one of the other reviews had stated. I could understand it breaking if I had stuffed it, but I did not. i only carried three pieces of clothes in it. I loved the bag so much that I took it to two repair shops and the first shop could not repair it at all and the second repair shop said "It would cost $80.00 to replace the zipper because it could not be repaired." They need a better zipper that is sturdy! I will returned the item. Fortunately, I purchased the 2 year warranty for replacement.
This bag is a nice looking, but small capacity, bag that is only useful for the infrequent traveler. It is not constructed to stand up to the rigors of weekly (or more frequent) travel though. After approximately 5 trips of varying duration (2 to 8 days at a time - mostly international) the bag began to fall apart. The exterior zipper began to slowly tear away from the binding......one of the internal zippers broke entirely......and the hanger peg at the top inside of the bag became steadily more and more loose. I was disappointed in the depth of the bag as well - not really feasible for travel to a full week's worth of business meetings.
Okay, I think this is more gorgeous in person, I have other leather luggage , and this will add to my collection. Its thick and it rolls real nice.. there are other name brands out there and they cost a fortune..its wide and I also bought a cover for it, to protect it during luggage handling at the airport..
the finish and quality is excellent for the price. There are many nice pockets inside and out and the fittings are of good quality and sturdy. I used it twice already for air trips and no damage was evident except a slight scuff of the finish on one side. I liked it so much I ordered another as a gift for a friend for an upcoming trip together.
