Now that I have had this bag for an adquate amount of time, I can truly say it is AMAZING and an incredible value. Similar bags cost a lot more and I doubt if they can perform better. I have taken this bag to Nigeria and on countless domestic trips packed to the GILLS to avoid having to check and it has held up very well. I love all the pockets and the zippers are VERY strong. It does get a little wobbly roll going on when I have it really stuffed, but that's to be expected. It usually stands up by itself if I pack it right, and the outside straps enable me to attach things (pillow, jacket, etc.) to the outside. I have packed up to 2 weeks worth of clothes into this bag and, best of all, even when totally stuffed, it has always fit into overhead bins, even on fairly small planes.

I bought this bag for my daughter to take on a week long trip. I was surprised at how easy the wheels rolled and the construction of the bag for the price. It was very roomy and able to fit a lot of stuff. I also bought another one of a different color for myself. I loved the bag. It made it through 2 international flights and a lot of hauling around.

As of April 2012, this bag does not qualify as a carry-on with Delta. I tried wheeling it past the gate guard at Atlanta and Boston and got stopped both times. It does not fit in the carry-on measurement guide and I had to check it. Empty it's 23" x 11" x 13." The extra inch in the height doesn't matter but that extra inch in length does. Because I've already used the bag, I can't return it. Bummer.

Bought these in three different colors/styles for my three older girls, and they love them. Very easy to pack, and unpack. Easy to roll around, easy to see what's inside when packed. Lots of great pockets and not too heavy. They can be folded/ collapsed down for easy storage. We used them on family vacation for three years in a row on car trips, and hotels. They held up surprisingly well for the price paid. We plan on using them again for vacation this summer. The construction is sturdy with reinforced stitching and piping on all the corners. They don't do well standing on their own unless you have fully and evenly packed all four corners of the bag.The zipper pulls are large, and the zippers have large teeth. We have packed these to bulging, an have never had a zipper rip or bust on us, nor a handle, nor a carry strap, nor a wheel. There is a shoulder strap, two handheld straps, and a end-of-bag strap. Giving you multiple carry options. The wheels are clear, large, and durable with treads. The handle can be compressed down into the bag, and zipped closed to be carried as a regular duffle. I'm 5'4" and the handle when fully extended comes to above my waist. The material is an vinyl-type and seems to be water resistant. These are perfect for my 10, 9,and 4 year olds to pull themselves. I can imagine if you had to stay somewhere longer than a couple weeks, these would probably not be big enough for you. The colors are bright, and true to the photos shown. The size looks like 24" long unpacked. I have checked out all the other bags and prices and reviews on Amazon, and Walmart.com, and this one is the best value for the size. I also love that there are so many prints to choose from. I plan on buying one for myself for short overnight and weekend trips, and possibly another for my baby to keep her clothing separate from the big girls on vacation. The only thing is, we have not tried to take them on a plane yet. I would recommend this bag to anyone. For the price, it's amazing. If you want cheaper, go to a yard sale. (Check out my customer images of the prints that we have for sizes, and colors.)

I bought this bag as a secondary bag for a two week trip to Guatemala. I check regular sized luggage for the plane ride over, but need a smaller bag for mini-trips within the country. This was perfect.
The bag has hand straps and a shoulder strap to carry, but if it's too heavy, then you can just roll it! I didn't expose this bag to real, tough terrain or anything, but it was great for my casual traveler needs.
The dimensions qualify this bag as a carry on, but I took this bag on a trip to Chicago and my return flight was on a smaller plane. My bag wouldn't fit in the overhead cabin. I had to take out a jacket and then it fit...so just take note of whether you're cramming too much in there.
Also, to address some of the other reviews about the smell. It's true; the bag did have a factory/industrial smell when it first arrived, but I just Febreezed it overnight and it was fine. The smell was gone.
Overall, I would totally recommend getting this bag.

We bought a couple of these for quick weekend trips and of the three we purchased only 1 is still functioning. The first bag bottom wore through while using the built in wheels. The 2 other bags have had the zipper seam let go.
Definitely would not recommend.

This bag is larger than it says in the published dimensions -- on both Amazon and the ebags website. It is longer and total linear dimensions greater than what is allowed for carry-on by the airline. Also as other reviewers noted PVC reek is oppressive. When I called ebags to return it the lady was rude and refused to return my shipping costs -- fortunately Amazon took care of that (I love you Amazon!).
So if you're looking for a carry-on bag look elsewhere.

I never got to use this product because of the foul odor it was shipped with. They resent me a new one and it was the same...horrific odor. Even the UPS man mentioned the stench on his truck. Both went back. Never buy this product/seller again

This bag is beautiful! Great quality and actually much bigger than I expected. I'm expecting a baby in about 3 months, and got this so that I can get my hospital bag ready, and I'm very pleased with the quality and size of this bag. It also rolls very smoothly. It also arrived at my house 5 days earlier than the expected delivery date, so that was an additional plus.
