I love this bag for the weekend. It fit nicely as a carry-on piece in the overhead bin on the airplane. You can also lay it down to go under the seat. It looks great. Hardware is heavy and comes with a should strap. I would buy this again. The part you need to know is if you have items packed in the top part and not the bottom, it squishes down and doesn't stay standing up. The bottom zipper section was perfect for shoes, dirty laundry or toiletries.
