Rated 5 out of 5 by getaway1 great for having food, especially on plane.
The food storage unit is located on the top of the bag so even under the seat in front of you, it provides easy access to your own snack! Pockets of different size grant you the freedom to pick and choose where to put items. The long shoulder strap is adjustable and the shorter handles fit over the handle of my suitcase. I know it will be durable because it's Llbean!

This is a great little bag. I wish it came in a little larger size. I will use to carry misc skydiving geear. If it was a little larger I could do away with helmet bag and put inside this bag. But it is well made, plenty of comparments, very good zippers, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by niftyatfifty Nice Carryon Bag
My husband and I bought this along with the matching Quickload Rolling Duffle for a ski trip to Utah. It is a nice little carryon with lots of compartments to store everything from boarding passes, to a change of clothes, to your nook. It is lightweight and has a neat little section on the top to keep a snack cool or to stash the 3.1.1 liquids for quick access at airport security.

This bag is perfect. Not only for use as a carry on bag, but as a general all purpose bag. It is a well constructed and top quality bag that will provide many years of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TVless The Magic Bag
Do you remember Mary Poppins' bag? Well, that's what this one is - magic. You keep putting stuff in and it never fills up. I've told this to others and they laugh then they borrowed my bag. They don't laugh anymore.
This is the best carryon bag hands down. I take this bag whenever I fly - to visit my mom for a long weekend or 4 day business trip. I can fit all my clothes, toiletries, and even an extra pair of shoes with room left over. I'm not kidding! Lots of pockets and a size and shape that is easy to carry. It fits under the seat instead of in the overhead bin easily.
I actually purchased this one for my mom so she could have her own magic bag because I can't part with mine.

I haven't used this bag yet, however, when I looked it over I can tell the bag is very well made and will provide many years of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EdLev Far exceeded expectations!
This Quickload Carry-on Bag--small, light, foldable--holds more stuff than luggage twice its size! Even full, it fits under the seat in front of you. In addition, the shoulder strap is sensational.
This is one piece of luggage no traveler should go without. It's capacity, structure, endless pockets, and quality construction make this a truly incredible necessity.

The Quickload Carry-On holds more than I expected but fits comfortably under an airline seat. The quality of construction and features are excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by oldbrewertonian Seemed like a good idea
I usually use a small black backpack for under-the-seat carry on. This bag looked better in the description, but turned out to be much smaller, more like an old train case crossed with a cooler bag. Very well made, lots of pockets, nice carrying strap, but way too small for my usual little laptop, camera, chargers and other stuff I don't trust to luggage handlers. It would be nice for a child. I returned it yesterday and was glad we have an LLBean store in the area.

by RustysMom2 A great carry-on, wonderful mulit-purpose bag.
This is actually my second review, after much traveling with this bag.
We received the blue one when we got the Quickload luggage set (which I love) several years ago and since then I have considered buying an additional carry-on bag. I ordered the orange (my partner definitely wants to stick with the blue one!) and love it. I was a little surprised that much of the trim and all the lining are bright yellow rather than the gray that is shown in the catalog, but I know those things change. The yellow lining will ensure we are each always in the "right" bag.
I have never used this bag for much in the way of clothes. It holds my electronics, 7-inch tablet, camera, battery chargers, paperback(s), meds, toiletries, misc things I forget to pack elsewhere, spare glasses case, snacks, art supplies, and more, all at once! The large interior pockets keep things in some semblance of order and the outside pockets are handy for things I want to get to quickly. I appreciate that one side pocket has organizers for pens, cards, phone, etc, while the other holds a paperback or bird guide just fine. I do wish at least one end pocket was more secure for a water bottle, but I use the gossetted end pockets for a variety of things I pack at the last minute. The"insulated" top pocket is great for snacks, esp to have them in easy reach on a plane. We have taken our blue one on several flights, on car-camping trips and weekends away at motels. Since I have tended to monopolize it, I decided to finally get a second one.
This bag is extremely useful in all those circumstances. On road trips, it is the bag that holds the things I want to access quickly and I keep it handy on the floor behind my seat. Well made, holds much more than it looks like it will. One day I may just try packing some clothes in it for a weekend!
