I ordered one of these bags and it appeared perfect. Held the right amount of clothes, I could manage the size, nice looking. Unfortunately, before trying out the carry-on, I ordered a second one. What I learned is that if you fill the suitcase (and especially if you use the extra zip-out space), the suitcase will not stand up. There are no real front feet and the bag just falls forward. We tried repacking the bag but it still fell over with the extra zip-out space closed. At the airport, my husband's case fell over, then he tripped over the case. When we got to our destination, we dumped both bags and bought ones that stand up! Terrible purchase.
