This bag exceeded my expectations. Went on a three week trip to the UK, and the bag survived four flights. The bag is big enough to hold all the clothing, shoes and jacket for three weeks but fit perfectly within the dimensions of the small airlines.

This carry on bag is exactly what it was described. I love it, and would technically give it 5 stars but unfortunately, the product I got has a defect in it. I do however believe that a simple defect shouldn't rate this product 3 stars but more around 3.75 stars.
The defect in my product is one of the strap/buckles inside the bag. I can't use the buckle because the strap was placed on the wrong hole, and its something that I can't just slip, and fix by myself because it will involve damaging the strap or buckle. The buckle will not lock with the straps on the wrong hole. For me to use the straps, I had to just tie the straps together. See photo's attached.

This bag is perfect for carry on in the plane! I use packing cubes to organize everything. It hold so much! I packed all my clothes for a 10 day trip in this bag! And still had room for more!

Just got this bag in to check out. Will be traveling light to Europe this summer and was looking for a bag like this. At first impression it looks to be well made with lots of starage pockets and zippered sections. Material is a little thinner than I expected, but I feel it will hold up fine. At this price, I feel it is a great deal. Time will tell.
As for now , I'll be ordering at least 2 more for the other members of the clan.
We just got back from a 2 week trip to France and UK. These bags are excellent for light travel. We where able to use as carry on on the way there, but ended over packing on the way back and had to check in. They performed well through the bagage handling systems of 3 airports without a hitch.
The only comment is that they tend to get uncomfortable at the shoulder straps when the weigh goes up(15kg+) and wouldn't consider long day treks with them fully loaded
They performed better than expected just the same

Loose threads everywhere, the right backpack strap seems to have already broken and stitched back poorly, the left strap starting to rip and this was new, right out of the box! Maybe you would have better luck if you bought another colour as the camo one seemed to be smooth, slick polyester and not canvas like the other solid colours. Good potential but this particular pack I received would maybe last 2 trips. Kept the Aurora backpack from Hynes instead of this one, which is a shame because I like the camo fabric more.

Purchased 2017 and can now do a full review. I works great. Air Canada allows as overhead carry on. With separate purchase packing cube it fit suit dress shirts three day mix and match wardrobe shoes slipper 13 inch lapptop in front pocket all normal business gear . Held up on multiple trips in Canada all handles and backpack straps work great . Max out the weight and no tears or pulls. Very good return on investment

We bought two for our travels, the only luggage we had since we moved around a lot. It was perfect for WOW air personal item (just don't over stuff it), i love that it opens like a suitcase when you lay it flat. We had it packed pretty heavy for a while and the seams are very well stitched. nothing came undone, I have no complaints. I love these.

Product is as described. We will see how it does on my up coming trip. First impressions however, I wish the fabric used was a thicker quality. Also, the shoulder strap stowage pocket could use a zipper to make that a useful pocket for securing a laptop or tablet and give the design a little more strength. I notice the eBags and Amazon basics version incorporated this. Storing the laptop in the front pocket makes the bag unbalanced with weight shifted outwards.
Update February 04 2018
Just returned from a whirlwind trip with this bag fully stuffed, including a suit, a couple of sweaters, shoes, tablet and backup battery. The bag survived. And I have recovered.
