Bigger than described in details.

The product is ok. The suitcase consists of a main storage area with an outer flap that zips over with two pockets. The main storage area is about 7.5" x 16.5" x 13" on the inside. The next pocket is to store your laptop and measures 17.5", 12.5", 2.5". On top of this is a slender pocket taking up maybe a 1/2", it can expand, but shouldn't if you want the bag to fit in the overhead.
The main storage area is almost 8" deep and the other pockets make it nearly 12". That said, it fits in a Southwest Airlines overhead and a Alaska Airlines overhead ok. You may need to empty the "laptop" pocket out to make it fit in other airlines overhead bins.
I like the bag, I just thought everyone should know it isn't 8" thick!
By the way, this is how Samsonite measures their luggage. See there measurement guidance:
