BEST CARRY-ON BAG EVER
With the straps stowed, this bag fits easily down the tightest aisle and into the smallest remaining overhead space with its smooth, tough skin. Using this backpack, I can make it through crowded terminals and crowds hands-free, reaching for a handhold as needed, feeling secure with slight touch for balance exiting a moving walkway, or running to a gate, elevator, courtesy shuttle, or public transit. Food and drinks purchased and consumed with free hands, bag secure. During layovers in quieter terminals, the ability to tether the bag to a chair, table, or counter has made bathroom trips, food runs, or just stretching one's legs worry-free pleasure.
Two years in, with heavy use, I would buy again, happily.
