Having tried laptop messenger bags, shoulder totes and backpacks, I really wanted something that a) rolled and b) fit under the airline seat as I have a frozen shoulder and can't lift things into the overhead bins anymore. So long as I sit in the window or middle seat, this works like a dream and I can actually rest my feet on it. My only minor complaint is that when it opens, it opens wide and it can be messy. But I'll live with that for convenience and rollability. The blue is really a pretty blue...
... after I received the briefcase - that, by the way was received promptly and on time - I found that my 15 inch laptop wouldn't fit inside it. The briefcase will take upto a 14-inch laptop. It DID have everything that I wanted though. It is amazingly lightweight and looks very smart too! I regret having to return this but am glad to recommend this product.
I gave this as a gift for my husband who travels frequently via air to DC. He is able to both pack for an overnight stay and carry the essential documents within the luggage and still get through the airports efficiently. He is 6' tall and appreciates the longer handle extension.
This carry-on is wonderful - goes under the seat, except some aisle seats, and saves the lifting. Although my 16" laptop doesn't fit in the inside compartment, it fits fine in front of the dividers. I really like the way it handles through the airport as a spinner. Great purchase.
