I recently went to Puerto Rico for 4 days and packed 2 slacks, jeans, 1 dress shirt, extra shoes,and 3 knit shirts. The carry on held it all (plus socks, toiletries, etc) with enough room for several more articles of clothing. It has a long handle that supports the weight of my laptop bag as well sitting on top of it while walking through the airport. I'm VERY pleased so far. Looks nice and seems to be good quality especially for the price.
