Rated 4 out of 5 by TravelTravel Good size Carryon Bag
I had a bag similar to this that fell apart after many years but is no longer made by its manufacturer. I was happy to find this one as it is the right size for what I was looking for. I use it as my "personal item" to carry on to flights. It fits well under the seat. It's a good roomy bag and actually carries much more than you would think it does. I would caution over stuffing it, as I don't think the zippers are as hefty as they should be but they are adequate. I also wish that this bag had more pockets for holding more of the little things that tend to get lost in a bag. Those little quibbles aside, it's a good bag and I like the looks of it as well. I hope it will last as long as my old one did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by elbarto Not What I Imagined
First I have to say that this piece of luggage is very well made. Even thought the dimensions were stated in the description, it was smaller than I'd pictured it, more like a purse than a piece of luggage. If I hadn't had it monogramed, I would have returned it. Hopefully my daughter-in-law will be able to use it.

I bought the bag for my husband. He liked the size for overnight
travel. It is very sturdy which is why I bought it through LLBean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bonnie555 It looks too much like a bowling bag.
Although it was roomy once opened - it had a bowling bag look. I wish it were a little wider. it would have had a luggage look rather than a sports look. other than that ...the color was great and i had initials put on so that made it special as a christmas gift. As always this was received the very next day and shipped for free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mom6 Small yet mighty
I am very pleased with this carryon bag. I got a ruler out and went over the size before I ordered. I was afraid it might be smallish yet when it arrived I find it is not as small as my ruler imagined for me, and it opens up to be quite roomy. Time will tell how it wears, I can't be a judge of that right now. The material seems sturdy and it looks sporty. I bought several for Christmas gifts for my sons.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Apodistra Mushy Handle, Sticky Zippers
This bag LOOKED to be just what I wanted -- but in actual practice it annoyed me to the point that I am returning it. First off, there is insufficient stiffness/reinforcement in the handle grip; it just sags miserably in the hand -- ick! Plus the zippers are sticky, not smooth, which is REALLY annoying. Not cool in a $79 bag!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Longtime Bought a duplicate of my husband's bag
My husband has used his travel bag for several years and it always seemed to have just the right amount of room. The outside pocket actually holds a water bottle, and the inside is big enough for "stuff", including lunch, without being so large that a smaller person (5'5") couldn't carry it. It's also very attractive. So, last month I bought one for myself. I haven't used it yet, but plan to do so on our flight next month...The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is that I would have preferred the back zip pocket to be a real pocket, rather than a slip through for the suitcase hand. But others may prefer being able to secure it easily to a wheeled suitcase handle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Vinyarder disappointed in travel bag
Two of the snap buttons on the handle and the name tag fell off immediately. The front section has the zipper in the middle not on the top, making it difficult to store magazines, folders, etc. Plus the shoulder strap is uncomfortable. It is a good size for airplane travel and it's functional but not a great Bean's product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Beyondlandscape Daily use
I use this bag daily as my gym bag. It holds enough for me to take my clothes, shoes and wash items. This bag is of highest quality. The canvas is thick. The construction is solid and the size is just right for me. I have used this bag every day for about 2 years and it still shows no sign of breaking down. A great product.
