Having had this bag in a larger version, I've hoofed this bag to many far and away places. Because I was traveling only for a week, I purchased this smaller version. Some of the best features include: two separate compartments, shoe storage in the upper compartment, very good roller blade wheels, conversion to backpack (though I wouldn't hike with it, it'll do when you need it off the ground). The material is a little thinner than I wanted and there is a very platic-y smell that has been hard to get rid of. I'm going to Japan with this bag and I feel it will be perfect. The colors are true to the monitor and it arrived speedily. I am happy with my purchase.
