The Only Bagg is a great travel bag. You can tell it was designed by stewardesses. However, as of c. April this year, Baggallini modified the interior pockets of the Only Bagg. They essentially down-graded it. They eliminated 2 of the 4 zipper pockets in the outer pouches, and the two remaining pockets are small. They also took out the two mesh pockets from the outer pouches. They also eliminated one of the two large zipper pockets in the interior section, and took off the plastic window on the coin purse (which was useful for carrying your passport and drivers license as you went through security). The Amazon photos of the interior configuration have not been updated to reflect these changes. When mine came, I thought it was possibly a counterfeit, but I checked with Baggallini and they confirmed that the newer bags have those changes. Still a nice bag, but not as exceptionally good for travel as it was before. What distinguished it was precisely the number of zipper pockets and organizational items that made it a great carry on and travel bag. Unfortunately, Baggallini did not lower the price of the bag to reflect the down-graded manufacturing details.

This is the best bag for travel. There are three major compartments and each is large enough to accommodate a laptop. The bag is lightweight and stays clean and fresh. There are six zippered pockets for your passport, cameras, makeup, notes, brochures, maps, phones, pdas, and a change of clothing. The bag is also comfortable: even filled to the brim, it hangs nicely on the shoulder. Stylish enough to serve as a purse and yet it is low-key enough that it doesn't scream "tourist!."

This bag has seemingly endless pockets, weighs nothing on its own, can carry tons of stuff without becoming very bulky, and is cute. Practical, well-made and durable.
This bag is too big to use as a purse or shopping bag. I use it as my commuter bag - I take a train into work and it's great to have one bag that can carry gloves & umbrella, my book, lunch, a sweater, my purse and other everyday items.
It's large enough for a laptop but would not offer any protection. The thing that's special about this bag is the durable yet very ligthweight material it's made of. It has the weight of a plastic shopping bag, but the feel is much nicer and it's sewn to have some structure.
I bought the green one. Online it looks like the interior is pink, but in person, the interior is mango orange. The zippers on this tote are contrast, so for better or for worse, all the pockets stand out if you get one with a light-colored interior.

Pros: Has a cellphone case, coin/ID purse, and nine inner pockets in the sidewalls. Flat bottom with board in it. Very light, roomy, and the straps stay up on my shoulder quite nicely. Handsome and tough. As a shopping or exercise tote it's probably quite good. I do love Baggallini bags and have several. (Thank you, Baggallini, for THINKING.)
Cons: I really wanted to like this bag, but it doesn't have quite enough structure. Flops over and collapses so that it's a bit of a struggle to find things. Has a little more stability when the center section is zipped closed. The side sections have one closure magnet each, which seem to keep closing up on you while you're rooting around; I'd rather have a zipper on at least one side. Barely fits my 15" MacBookPro width-wise in the center section, but won't zip closed. Unlike many Baggallini bags, it doesn't have a key strap attached to the inside. Didn't work very well as a travel carry-on because of its wide-open side compartments and inability to hold its shape standing up unless stuffed.

I bought this bag to tote around all of the things that I needed to carry on my recent vacation in Hawaii. It looks really nice and has plenty of room for sun-block, cameras, caps, sweatshirts, sunglasses etc. The only problem that I had with it was that all three compartments are exactly the same inside, meaning there are six zippered pockets that all look alike. I found myself getting frustrated digging for objects in my purse. Also, by the end of the trip my shoulder was pretty sore from carrying the heavy bag. Some padding in the handles might have helped. Overall, I am pleased with this product and will use it again for future trips.

I purchased this to use as a carry-on during a recent trip to Europe. It is extremely light weight, and I liked all the various compartments and pockets, I was able to carry all the paperwork, passport, tickets, etc., in one side compartment (no need to carry a separate purse), my MacBook Air in its sleeve in the other side compartment, and all my overnight gear and paperback books fit in the center. It did get a little heavy during some of the long airport treks, but the size was easy to handle through Security, and it fit nicely under the seat in front of me onboard and was therefore accessible during the long flights, so it was worth it. It is very well made. I'll buy more baggallini products.

I use this bag for everything from a short two day trip, shopping at the market, dog supplies for the dog park, just everything. I love that it has so many compartments and how well the compartments are lined. It can be used for a baby bag, small laptops, file folders, etc. If you need a very versatile bag, this is the one for you. I chose the khaki, but with so many colors to choose from I am going to order a different color.

I have one of these bags from several years ago. I have used and used it and it is not in the least bit worn. I decided to replace it after a black marking pen leaked and left a large permanent stain - definitely not the bag's fault. Now I have my new bag. Will I keep it? Yes.
I read recent reviews saying Baggallini had changed the bag eliminating many of the interior pockets. I went ahead and ordered the bag as the old one had far more pockets than I ever used anyway. The bag came and indeed the interior of the bag has been redesigned with quite a few missing extras. Outside compartments have only 1 small pocket instead of 2 and the mesh water bottle holders are gone - I loved these for glasses. The interior has only 1 zippered pocket as compared to 3 before, the cell phone pocket is open allowing the cell phone to fall out (on the positive side it is bigger and will hold a larger phone). And most upsetting NO KEY FOB! I need a key fob and will have to jerry-rig something. Finally the zippered wallet is missing the id viewer on the outside.
The first customer review reporting changes to the bag is from July 2012. It is now the end of October. That is too long for an inaccurate product photo and description.

Actually it should be ZERO stars!!! REALLY DISAPPOINTED!!! I love the Baggallini bags and own a couple of them. I have been thinking on getting the red Only Bagg for a long time and when I saw the price I couldn't resist. This bag seems to be an imitation or second hand item. It does NOT have all of the zippered pockets (7) inside and is missing the 2 meshed bottle holders completely!!! The coin purse is missing the id window as well. Amazon is sending an replacement, so I will update my comments once it arrives.
Well, I received the replacement and again the Bagg was not up to the quality I'm used to from Baggallini. Both Baggs have been returned. VERY DISSAPOINTED!!!

This bag is perfect for a diaper bag. It has ample room for change of clothes, feeding accessories, diaper, wipes, etc. Plus there's extra room in case you don't want to carry a purse. Love it!! I highly recommend.
