    Wanted a nice size bag - not too large but big enough for a weekend get away. Ended up not using it but the quality was so good, decided to keep anyway for the next time.

    This bag is phenomenal. I will be traveling in Europe for the next year; so, I not only need something that will fit the dimensions of a carry-on, but something that can also withstand all the hustle and bustle of moving around airports and cities. Also, the price does not get much better. A bag of this quality is hardly found at this good of a price.

    The outside has a very durable rubberized coating, and the inside is made of a tarp-type of material, holding up to any liquids, dirt, etc. With handles on all four sides of the bag, you can easily grab in and the strap allows you to throw it over your shoulder.

    The only negative I have seen is that the shoulder strap runs from diagonal corners rather than from one side to another. So my bag tends to flip whenever I use the shoulder strap, yet I have yet to actually put substantial weight in the bag. (I am sure the weight of several sets of clothes will weigh it down enough for it to not flip.)

    I actually like the bag but it does not have a regular carrying handle, which makes the bag impracticle

    I'm currently using this bag with 35-40lbs of sand in it for workouts and it is holding up great. It seems well made and easy to clean, I probably should have bought two at the price.
