I have used this little 'lunchboxy' tote for over a year now in my travels and it has logged many many miles and held up pretty well. It is the perfect size for a carry on for me - Kindle, Ipod, Small travel wallet, Blackberry, flying socks, small essentials bag - chapstick mascara,powder,travel lotion. about a 4' wide jewelery box for the good stuff and my medications in a 6'x3' weekly minder, pack of gum and mints, headphones case, and sunglasses. This last trip one of the inside liners finally gave up the ghost but with a little glue and pressure it's back in action. I get lots of compliments on the whole set of the Snakeskin pattern.. The suitcases haven't fared as well due to baggage handling etc..
