My mom has been traveling with an upright suitcase and a terrible tote bag for years. Picture a beach bag that is stained, ripped and doesn't zip - it has stuff falling out of it all the time. She is traveling for business more and more these days, and this is the bag that she takes with her. She's also not very big, so she sometimes struggles with maneuvering the upright roller. I thought I'd get her a nice new carry on with a matching tote for Christmas, so she can look like the professional woman she is when she travels. Attempting to be proactive (and avoid Christmas shopping crowds), I ordered her a new set online before Thanksgiving. It took three weeks to arrive, got delivered to the wrong address and then looked and felt cheap when I finally got it. Given the close proximity to Christmas, I went to four different stores and found nothing, then took to Google in a frantic search for a decent gift. Thank goodness I found this suitcase and the matching tote! My mom has a thing about being able to identify her luggage on a baggage carousel if she ever needs to check her luggage - she prefers her suitcase to be distinctively colored so she can spot it easily, and black suitcases all look the same. I liked the purple color, but purple can be dangerous, and pictures online don't always match the product. Since Christmas was approaching quickly and I didn't have time to misorder again I ordered the suitcase and the tote in both purple and black. I figured if the purple was terrible my mom could put a distinctive luggage tag or scarf on the black suitcase. I went to check out, and to my great surprise and pleasure, I got free two-day shipping! I had been prepared to pay an arm and a leg to get the present here on time but Overstock came through! I got home from work two days later and all four pieces of luggage were on my porch. I opened the boxes to check them out and the purple was a lovely plum color, and the tote was even better then I expected. The pictures don't show it, but the tote has a pocket on the back that can unzip from the bottom so you can slide the tote over the handle of the suitcase. It also has a zippered pocket on the front that is perfect for the important items like the boarding passes and wallet and two big pockets on the sides for items like your water bottle. The suitcase was beautiful too, the zippers and hardware felt very sturdy and there was a little pouch to keep your liquids in. I liked the suitcases so much that I wound up giving my sister the black set! My mom spent Christmas morning rolling her suitcase around the house with her because she was so excited. My little sister will likely be studying abroad next year and she will be psyched to have it! I was so close to keeping the black set for myself and still might order myself a set.
I loved this bag. It seems to be well made and the strap is comfortable. I bought it for my grand daughter who has a bad back and needed something with a large strap that would take the weight off the middle of her back. She seems to love it and says it doesn't hurt her at all.
I bought this bag to tote around books. It is light weight and expands large enough to hold quite a bit of books etc. The reason why I gave this only four starts is because the wheels are partially in the bottom of the bag and to not provide much clearance when rolling the bag. Great bag overall.
Great bag for laptop or iPad. It has room for chargers and other stuff, even files and paperwork. Laptops and files fit in vertically and make it less bulky. Has nice regular straps and an adjustable shoulder strap, too. Easily fits under any airplane seats.
Very impressed. Service was great. When the 1st one arrived one of the snaps was not attached to the strap when it was manufactured. Called and they sent another out quickly and it arrived with no problems. Love the color and size.
