Product Review (submitted on May 4, 2012):
I bought this for family trips, because, when traveling with three small children, we travel with huge quantities of stuff. I wanted a "catch all" that would have room for my things plus whatever else my kids wouldn't/couldn't carry. My daypack wouldn't cut it any longer, and I needed it to be just small enough to fit, fully stuffed, into an airplane overhead compartment. Finally, I needed something in which I could have complete faith. I can't have a bag stuffed like a pinata bursting apart while I'm trying to get my family in or out of a plane or through an airport. This bag just nails all those requirements: Just the right size, and with astonishing durability. You won't find perfectly aligned stitches, but you will find rugged materials, with everything reinforced where it needs to be reinforced. It is a life-time purchase.
