Perfect Carry-On for Short Trips
I recently purchased this bag in Go Wild for a three-day weekend trip. I was taking a flight and did not want to check any luggage. I easily packed enough clothes for the weekend, including extra items! I was able to also stash two big scarves, a small hair dryer and hair iron, the Large Cosmetic Case and the Jewelry Folio. I had extra room, and even though the width dimensions were one inch larger than carry-on regulations for the airline, it fit easily in the overhead compartment because it was not stuffed. I even had room for a souvenir sweatshirt purchase on the way home. I didn't even need an extra big bag; I used my Mailbag purse. So pleased with the size of this bag, how much it held. The four interior pockets were great for socks, underwear, bras and scarves. My other clothes fit neatly in the middle, and I put the cosmetics and jewelry folio right on top. It was perfect -- I stayed at two hotels and it kept everything neat both nights. A long strap makes it easy to lug through the airport, and the short handles give good control when going down the aisle of the plane. I highly recommend this bag if you are traveling on short trips via airplane and do not want to check your luggage. I even had a woman on the plane tell me that she really liked the bag! Can't wait to find an excuse to use it again.

I recieved this in Baroque last Christmas and absolutely love the bag! It is a lot larger than expected, but is definetly a great travel companion. I took it as my only bag on a three day weekend trip to visit a friend. I traveled by bus and train. The bag did get obnoxiously heavy, and I had to switch shoulders a few times while walking from the train station to her dorm. But it held everything I needed and more (I'm an over packer)! I'll hopefully get to try it out on a plane this Christmas. The planes I'll be traveling on are very small (they seat three across and have about twenty rows - including first-class), so that will be the ultimate test for me with this bag.

Great Long Weekend Bag!
I just purchased this bag last night and I am still so excited that I did. I have yet to use the bag how I intended to when I purchased it, but as a woman, I am a chronic overpacker and I know that this bag will be my new go to bag. I am looking forward to using this bag when I go on 3-4-5 day getaways. I will be able to finally fit everything in one bag and not have to worry about what bag stuff is in. It is roomy but I have read reviews about how bulky it can get. I got my Grand Traveler on "Black Friday" and used it to lug all of my other purchases around and I didn't find it bulky at all. I found that it will become heavy it you use the handles but the shoulder strap is AMAZING! And the size is great! When I got home, I litterally wanted to see how much I could fit in and my 2 year old hopped in and fit comfortably!!! It's amazing and I can't wait to use it more!!!
