I purchased this CalPak 22-inch Proxy Multi-pocket Carry On Duffel Bag in blue and I was pleasantly surprised. First, it was just as advertised: the size, the weight (4 lbs), the quality of the material, and the self-repairing big zippers. Secondly, the shoe pocket on the side came in handy. Thirdly, the bottom compartment was helpful in allowing me to separate clean and dirty clothes while on the trip. Overall, it is a well-built duffel and all the dimensions were accurate. I was under the 22 lb weight limit the airline imposed on carry-on bags and nobody made a fuss about it's size. I went on an 8-day international trip with it. I also used a backpack for my laptop and other personal stuff. I pack light anyway, but it's the right size for maybe a weekend trip. The one thing I didn't like is the carrying strap. I could've been made a bit better by making the cushioned part mobile along the strap. I am satisfied with this bag and I'll recommend it to anyone looking for a regulation size carry-on that is of good quality and good price.
