    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I bought this to use as the “personal item” on the plane. Full size carry-on goes in the overhead bin, and “personal item” under the seat. The product tag that comes with the bag says “Designed to fit under most airline seats”. Well, so far I haven’t had the chance to try fitting it under most airline seats, but even if this monolith could be shoehorned under the seat, I’m pretty sure your feet would then have to find other accommodations.

    Here’s the problem: the dimensions stated in the description are wrong. 16.5 X 12.75 X 8.75?? No. It measures 18 inches long, 13.15 inches tall in the body – (then add 1.6 inches for the stiff handle that sticks up on the top) – and 10.5 inches thick (when packed it bulges slightly to this dimension). This is very close to the common 22 X 14 X 9 that the majority of airlines consider suitable for carry-on luggage meant to be placed in the overhead bin.

    So, as a personal item, it fails. However, the design of this bag is really good. I like the way it opens wide just like a suitcase. The zippered side pocket fits a 3-1-1 bag perfectly. The sleeve in the back that is meant to slip over the handle of your rolling luggage is brilliant – all tote bags should be designed that way. If Samsonite would take this exact design and build it in a true 17 X 10 X 9 (or even 17 X 11 X 9) I would call it bag of the year.

    I recently purchased the charcoal version of the bag. So far I like it. There’s plenty of room in the main compartment for clothes, supplies whatever. I was able to fit 5 regular shirts a pair of shorts and 3 pairs of pants. Along with a few pairs or socks and undergarments. There’s also an open pocket on the side maybe for a water bottle and a closed pocket on the other side the same size. And of course the front compartment you can fit a tablet, laptop the cords, pens etc there. Materials seem pretty durable. It is a soft bag. Not hard shell. It’s formed and stays in the shape shown in the picture but it is flexible. Comes with a shoulder strap, also good materials, metal clips that hook on the bag. My flight leaves in a week I will update with details about how it holds up and fits under the seat and in the overhead compartment. Overall a good product from samsonite and the price is just right.
