Love the bag. Fits loads of gear/clothes/shoes/beer/wine/whatever you pack. Zippers work flawlessly. Bag is lightweight and folds flat. Mine came with a removable lightweight hard plastic liner to keep the load flat, which was helpful. ONLY COMPLAINT: the stock shoulder straps are not really suited for carrying as a backpack, which I wanted to do. Bought replacement straps and it worked like a charm. Used this as only bag for 12 day trip to Spain/Morocco and it was perfect. Plus plenty of week-long or weekend trips in between. Even when packed full, if you leave one of the two side compartments empty it will fit PERFECTLY in the overhead compartment of a 737. Small Colorado based operation. Buy this bag. 5 starts if they fix the shoulder straps.

i got the mountainsmith strapettes. I think they're intended for a lumbar pack, but they seemed to do the trick for this. Good luck!
