I ordered the cosmetic case after receiving the 20' carry on case. This case is lovely! I'm going to use it for traveling as a purse because my netbook fits into it perfectly. It roomy and has various zipped and mesh pockets(two of each). You can carry it by the handles like a purse, by the stretchable handle in the middle(as a cosmetic case) or with the shoulder strap. I only wish the shoulder strap was brown instead of black. I don't anticipate any problems in durability, because I don't have any intentions of ever checking these bags with anyone. The case is just as light weighted as the carry on. This luggage definitely makes a statement when you see it coming!I wrote a review for this Tuesday, Nov. 24th. I don't think it went through I had a glich in my system whenit was time to preview the review.
