Rated 5 out of 5 by SkyCouch Better Than Expected
I bought this for my elderly father who needed a small and light weight carry on bag. His first choice color was on backorder so we reluctantly chose the blue which seemed a little too bright. Happy surprise, the bag is actually more like a medium navy blue, very classic. Wheels are very maneuverable, handle extends to a comfortable height (not too short for a 5'7" man), and the whole thing tucked right under a dining table chair! Dad loves the sensibly placed outer pockets, the larger of which holds his iPad. Thanks, LL Bean for another great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChanceWayne Best carry on ever.
This is by far the most convenient to use carry on I have ever used. Extremely well made and holds more than you can imagine. Best of all, it fits easily into the overhead compartment on the airplane. The more that I travel, the lesser I like to pack and carry. This carry on is perfect for my travels.

Rated 3 out of 5 by songarden28 Carryall Rolling Underseat Bag
The suitcase is really pretty and looks to be well made. The only problem that I have is that it is smaller than I thought it would be. I was hoping that this would be large enough for a week's worth of clothing but it is more of a weekend bag size rather than a full week. I do like the Plum color of the bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ColderWeather24 Perfect for the lightweight traveler
This is the perfect bag/carry on for the traveler that likes to take as little as possible. I bought this as a gift for my mom who is this type of traveler and she is thrilled to use it. Outstanding quality too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SpiritAirTraveler Ever so slightly big for my particular needs
I purchased this to use exclusively on my monthly trips on Spirit Airlines because they have unique under-seat baggage requirements (that being 16 x 14 x 12). Prior to my purchase I called to be sure that the 16 included the handle and wheels and was told it did so I thought I had found exactly what I needed; however, I neglected to see that it is 14-1/4 wide (with a rigid base and therefore no room to squeeze it to fit). Unfortunately, due to that 1/4" I'm not able to use it for its intended use. I would suggest to the manufacturer to attempt to downsize the width to accommodate those traveling on Spirit Air because I've Google searched the Internet only to find Mickey Mouse and SpongeBob and the likes that fit their strict under-seat requirement - being a 60 year old woman certainly doesn't lend itself well to such a bag. Therefore, I haven't used it and am still contemplating returning it but because it seems to be such a nice bag may decide to keep it for use on other airlines.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LBAL just the right size
I have yet to take this on a plane but have used it several times for day trips. I like the small size and have been able to fit everything (except my boots) when only needed for a weekend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomSurgeon NO stroller/rollerboard jetway waits!!!
I have had this bag for over 2 years. My kids and I fly every two weeks. This bag has logged countless flight miles, and true to Bean's testing, it easily withstands my 4 year old sitting on it to ride through the airport. It obviates the stroller, and is simply the perfect sized underseat bag, It fits under seats even on those tiny planes, and often I have to tell the flight attendant "no, I don't have to gate check it, it really will fit." The pockets' design makes it easy to get into everything in the bag without having to pull it out from under the seat. I keep checking back to see if Bean has redesigned it with a handle that doesn't keep collapsing down. Will buy another when they do.

Bought this at the store on a visit to Maine. It is just the right size for an overhead rack on an airplane. Seems well made and it fits her purpose. Store sales person was most helpful.
