    This is a great carry on bag, It hold roughly half the amount of my Travelers Club carry on, making it ideal if you want to pack for a few days (weekend get away). Even on commuter planes it fits under the sit, based on the picture I attached that likely the biggest bag you can fit on those tiny jets. Others have said it does not hold its shape like it should, I would say that is not true. The front pockets are great for holding electronic devices giving you easy access. The only reason I am giving this four instead of five stars is because the side pockets are not very strong since I ripped a tiny hole in mine with ease and the built-in strap that slides over the handle of spinners and uprights is horrible. The velcro that is suppose to secure it detaches all the time, that is why I had to use the front handles to make it work.
    Overall it is a great bad based on its size, sturdiness, and number of pocket. I would recommend it. However sliding this on your additional luggage is a pain.

    Bought this specifically to meet on Spirit Airlines free personal item measurements. Even though the dimensions are slightly longer, the bag fits perfectly fine. I was able to pack 4 days worth of clothing and toiletries plus bring back several items for my wife in the same bag without overpacking/stuffing the bag. I would definitely recommend this bag for any weekend trip under 5 days. Stop overpacking and speed up getting on/off the plane.

    Sturdy . big enough for a 2-5 day trip -depending on your packing skills... (2 pants. 5 shirts. Socks . Underwear. Jammie's. Toiletry bag. Tablet. 2 good size paperbacks.1st aid kit . Sweater and etcetera. ..) fits under the seat (surprisingly). A little on the heavy side and there's 2 front pockets for easy access for slim items. A mesh pocket on each side. Nothing to separate used laundry or shoes or for heavier/ bulkier items

    I use this bag as my "personal item" when flying commercially. It holds an amazing amount of stuff and fits nicely under the airplane seat in front of me. Others have complained about it not holding its shape when half empty (or half full for all you optimists), however it does a great job and this feature actually helps it fit nicely into small places and under seats. They are correct that it lacks the gusset pockets found on many other bags, but I found that I just didn't need them so it works well for me.

    So glad I bought this Boarding Bag! Because I had filled it to the top with stuff that did not fit into my carry on suit case, I was not sure that this bag would fit so well under my seat on the plane. To my delight, the bag fit perfectly underneath my seat. I found the pockets on the side to be very convenient to hold bottles of water and books. Though the front zippered pockets work great for a lap top, I used them to hold folders and souveneirs I bought. I really like that the top of bag has a zipper which keeps things from falling out of bag. Velcro strap on back is good for slipping over suit case handle. However, in order to keep bag steady, you must place the two straps that are on top of bag over the suit case handle too. Have used it on four plane trips and so far it has kept up well.

    We were flying SPIRIT Airlines and I wanted a bag that would maximize my 'free personal item'. This bag was the closest I could find in the time frame that I needed it by. This is a nice size bag and exactly what I was looking for! The bag appears to be well made, it is 'squish-able' and not stiff like the picture may make it look to be. I was able to fit my camera bag in it as well as a change of clothes and my PJs and I had a little room to spare (the camera/change of clothes was my goal).

    It fit under the seat for Spirit just fine. The airports involved were MCO (Orlando) and CLE (Cleveland) - neither of these flights were big sticklers on making people stick their free bag in the bin to make sure it fit (I had heard Spirit at other airports were pretty strict and wanted to make sure we were in the free-bag-limit).

    Outside of Spirit Airlines - this would make for a very nice 'weekender bag' and I can see getting more use out of it other than just flying. It really is a convenient size!

    Construction is solid, but it a much softer bag than expected. Rather than standing upright and open for loading/unloading, it tends to collapse. While not a huge deal, loading and unloading is what you do with a suitcase!!

    It does the job, but it seemed sub-par on the standards, The D-rings for the shoulders trap twisted all over the place, so it didn't distribute the weight correctly. There were a few loose threads on the inside, but I can live with that. The larger zipper on the front only has a single tab for the zipper; meaning you can't access the pocket unless you open it the entire way.
    My biggest frustration; when fully packed, it doesn't fit under the seat in front of me. That was rather frustrating.
