This is the perfect size bag, carry-on, overnight, or work/school bag. I'm probably in the minority, but those dimensions websites give for things, like purses in particular, (no offense 'O'!!) are of absolutely no help to me. And so I was keeping my fingers crossed that it was as roomy as it sounded. It is. Also the leather is soft and natural looking and the lining seems much sturdier than your average bag lining. The other iffy point was color...I wanted something other than the usual black or brown. But burgundy sounded much too bright. It's not though. It's dark, more mahogany than red. It will blend in fine with other browns. I'm loading it up as I write!!
