We purchased this to replace an old carry-on that had seen it's time come & go. We are veteran fliers and we've already taken it on multiple flights on multiple airlines, including one international, and several weekend car trips. It will likely still not fit in the overhead bins of small prop planes or jets, but on AA, United, US Air & Southwest for flights of 30 min to 3.5 hours it fit in the overhead bin just fine. The interior of the bag doesn't seem nearly as roomy as another bag we have that ostensibly is the same size (they're the same height & width when standing) but in fact they do seem to hold about the same amount of clothes & shoes & such. I believe the difference is in the lid, which is inset a bit from the edge of the bag, making the opening smaller than the larger-seeming. We can fit clothes for two adults for a long weekend (included day & evening outfits) in the bag, or clothes, shoes & toiletries for day & evening for one adult for the same time period. The front pockets are perfect for storing your electronics (small 13 in laptops or tablets) and the side pocket to hold water bottles is a surprisingly useful place to stash your 3-1-1 until you're through security. The 360-wheels are wonderful and make getting through even very narrow aisles easy. The fabric & fastenings are sturdy & have held up well to abuse. We are not gentle with our bags. The color is much more subtle, almost a grey-mauve-brown than in shown in the picture. We love this bag and will purchase a second (if it is available) when it comes time to replace our other carry-on.
