I bought this carry-on for our trip to Mexico- The size is perfect as I packed an extra set of clothes, bathing suits included, and toiletries for 4 people in case our luggage was lost. The luggage did well on the way there, on the way back, less weight than going, the leather strap that you carry the bag with came off- there was no way of putting it back on. Yes, there is a side handle to carry it with which is why we are not returning it (did not want to accrue S & H costs) but the design is poor. The rivets are weak and do not go all the way through the bag itself. The bag looks good, though.
