πŸ’¬ Reviewers Have Said

  • "This bag is AMAZING. I am obsessed and will never travel without it. I packed 9 shirts, 3 pants, 1 week's worth of undergarments, 6 pairs of socks, 1 blanket for the plane ride, 1 pair of shoes, 2 toiletries/makeup bags, a kindle, portable phone charger, two eyeglass cases, phone, and a collapsible neck pillow. This bag still fit under the seat in the plane when turned sideways. The material is heavy duty and the zippers are high quality. Love it!"
  • "I love this bag! I used it on my honeymoon through Europe and it worked perfectly. I didn't have any issues bringing it as a carry-on bag, even on smaller airlines throughout Europe. I love that it opens completely like a suitcase--it made packing and re-packing easy. I used a few compression bags and the ebag flat toiletry bag and it fit everything I needed for a 12-night trip. I used it as its smallest size my whole time, but I liked the option of expanding it if I ended up finding souvenirs to bring home. The buckles on the sides served double duty: for compressing it further to ensure it would fit in overhead bins, but also to hide the zippers beneath so I didn't have to worry about anyone's sneaky maneuvers behind me. I used the front pocket for my TSA-approved toiletries, which made security a breeze. The top pocket was a perfect fit for an umbrella...I could go on and on about this bag!"
  • "This bag is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I'm so pleased. The junior is a great size for a weekend away. Many of the carry-on bags were too big for a short break. This has plenty of pockets for storing and organizing all essentials. The top front pocket is perfect for easy access to liquids and tablets at the security check point. The bag opens out fully like a hinge and you can use both sides inside for belongings."
