I wasn't sure what to expect about this bag. I had read mixed reviews, but needed a small carry on in a hurry for a trip I was taking. The bag came just in time and was much roomier than I had hoped. I was able to fit in 3 pairs of shoes, a make up bag, a bag of shampoo and other essentials, 2 dresses, 2 swim suits, a beach towel, 1 set of pjs and 4 shirts and a pair of shorts. It was very easy to pull through the airport and light weight. The outside did get damaged when the airline took it one the plane, but I had read that in a review. There was only pink left at the time when I purchased, but it ended up being a nice color so that was ok. I also liked how it had a compartment that was separated by a zipper and a pocket. It made putting my shoes and cosmetics separate a good thing. All in all I would say it's a great bag.
