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.
This rolling shopper tote is more beautiful in person then the picture shows It holds many things including my laptop I travel quite a bit and have been looking for a long time for carry on with wheels ...It fits perfectly in the overhead on the plane ...And is quite a conversation piece ...I am asked all the time where I purchased it ....It's a fun piece and the graffiti writing just adds to it ...
Although this tote seems to be well-made and I like the exterior, I am disappointed in the interior (which is sloppy-looking even for an 'unseen' part. Also, I failed to read the dimensions, which are approximately 18" x 14". That is quite small for a shopper tote bag. When I read 'large fashion shopper tote bag, I envisioned "LARGE". I would not have purchased it had I seen it at a store.
