Great for personal carry on bag on airplane - Comparison with Lesportsac Everygirl Tote
on February 25, 2016
I paid 54 dollars for this item and it is a good buy at that price. I bought this specifically as a travel purse as it mostly meets the "personal item" dimensions for my airline which is 17 long /13 wide /8 high. The measurements indicated (at least for this color) are not correct. It measures at 18 inches long, 12 inches high (expands up to 15 with the zipper) and 5 inches deep. It is approximately 3x thicker than the average lesportsac product, although still very light, which makes it more substantial and comfortable to carry my 15 inch work laptop, which is heavy like a brick. The lesportsac everygirl tote measures 12 inches long, tapering up to 18 at the top, 11 inches high (expands up to 13 1/2 with zipper, and is 6 1/2 inches deep. It is much lighter material, and not really suitable for carrying a heavy laptop, although I do throw it in there to bring to work. The everygirl tote is still a great product to bring as a personal item on airplanes (sans heavy laptop) or to pack as an extra bag as it virtually disappears, and makes a great daily big purse. The 6 1/2 depth of the everygirl tote is also very convenient for storage and is deeper than most totes.
