I wanted a rolling travel bag to reduce strain on my shoulders injured from carrying heavy tote bags on previous trips. I also wanted one that would fit under the airline seat for easy access to items and to avoid hoisting a bag into the overhead compartment. Bag fit perfectly on airlines under window/middle seats. On one leg of the trip, I did put it in the overhead and even packed full and it wasn't too heavy or difficult to stow and retrieve for my five foot, 125 pound frame. I didn't have a laptop so I used the padded compartment to stash my pajamas, slippers and an extra top just in case my check-in luggage got lost. Bag is probably roomy enough to hold enough for a light packer for a 2-3 day trip. Curling irons, hair dryer, and makeup bag fit perfectly in the bottom section. An extra pair of shoes would fit nicely in this section as well.Front zip around compartment was great for eyeglasses, extra contact lenses, chargers, headphones, a magazine and snacks. Loved the large zippered sleeve inside this compartment to keep small items safe and secure when pulling out larger items. Zippered small pouch on front of bag kept boarding passes safe and easily accessible. Stow away handle was sturdy and I liked the zip-around cover for it. Rolled easily and also liked that the tilted bag/small leg design kept the bag upright and it didn't topple over when standing in lines or sitting in the airport.Loved this bag and would definitely recommend!
