I bought this because I was looking for an extra large black tote and the reviews described this as perfect to use as a carry on. It is indeed huge with lots of space. But to me the padded lining makes it feel like an extra large lunchbox. It would work great for carrying groceries but I want something more professional feeling to travel with. I will be returning this item.

This large spinner is made very well and I chose this over the medium because they tend to run smaller than the other brands. Briggs & Riley has a life time warrantee which is why I went with this brand. I do wish that it had a few more compartments in the suitcase itself but compared to the other brands this is a great purchase!

Fantastic travel bag. So many compartments, I have trouble deciding what to put where. Fits a laptop plus everything else I need on long flights. Big enough for an overnight or two. But most spectacular is Briggs & Riley's guaranty. My bag ripped due to mishandling (very long story), I shipped it to B&R's repair center, and they sent me a new bag within 2 weeks. Amazing customer care! All my bags will be B&R from here on out.

Sophisticated more sturdy alternative to the usual backpack, and smart looking like a briefcase. Perfect for train commuters who need durable and practical bag for laptop and daily business essentials.

This is a great little bag. It has lots of compartments to keep you organized. Plenty of room for one or two nights (depending on how you pack), room for your computer. This Briggs and Riley brand has held up very well for me in the past and that's why I chose it again.

Just gave this to our daughter (soph @ Penn State) for her 20th birthday. She loves it. It's got lots of pockets, well made of durable material and is big enough to use for a lot of different uses.

One of the three bags we ordered had a defective handle. Didn't notice until I extended it on way to airport (first trip)...couldn't use handle for the trip. Briggs and Riley customer service very poor! Hassle to return as a repair when in fact it was defective. Going back to Tumi although we have a closet full of Briggs and Riley bags. How disappointing!

Best suitcase I've ever owned. Very study construction. Lighter weight than most. Doesn't tip over when full. Easy to maneuver with around busy airports. I can pack a full week's worth of clothes and extra pair of sneakers in here. Never had a problem getting this into overhead storage either. Meets the latest FAA 2014 overhead size requirements (which are smaller than before).

I love this bag! I've used a tote bag for more than 20 years to take all of my stuff to work (small purse, lunch, umbrella, sunglasses, etc.), and this is the best tote bag I've ever had. This was more money than I wanted to spend and was heavier than my previous tote bag, but I couldn't find anything else, so I "settled" for the Briggs & Riley bag. And I'm so happy I did. The structured bottom adds to the weight, but it actually makes the interior space seem larger and more usable than the lighter-weight bag I replaced, and the bag feels comfortable to carry even when it's loaded with all my stuff. It has plenty of pockets to keep things organized, and the zippered slip-through back pocket has a separate pocket so that you can use it to hold things even if you unzip the bottom to put it on a rolling bag. I usually buy black but I ordered the olive one and I really like the color and the look of the contrasting khaki straps. Overall, this is a fantastic tote bag.

I've had this bag for about a year now and have traveled with it many times. It has been a solid performer. I regularly travel commuter routes, and have found this bag fits in almost every overhead bin, give or take the Embraer 145. Packed carefully, I can manage multi-day trips with this for clothes, and a messenger bag for my laptop and "311" bag.

I waffled between this bag and the medium brief. However, I'm a small lady and this bag looked "right" with my size. It fits a very limited number of things: 13" MacBook Pro, notebook, pens, and a few business cards. Nothing more. But for me, it's enough, and the resulting bag is very light and easy to carry everywhere. The quality is good. But don't expect to win any fashion shows, it is definitely not stylish.

I ordered this carry on garment bag because I really like the larger one and thought this would be great for short trips, but it has a "fatal flaw": It cannot be wheeled up the aisle of the plane. The construction is such that it can only be pulled width-wise (wheels don't swivel) and it is too wide. Also, for this traveler (and I am reasonably strong), it is much too heavy to lift over my head into the storage compartment. Thank heavens for the kindness of strangers!

This bag is oddly enormous. Like, carry-on luggage enormous. We kept thinking there must be some stuffing left in their bulking it up, but there isn't, just a lot of built in padding. Way too big to use as a regular briefcase. Nice material, though.

This bag is fantastic! If this doesn't keep me organized when I travel nothing will. Very roomy and can hold my purse, a few magazines, my Kindle, some makeup and even a change of clothes! It will fit under the seat on a plane and zips close for security. Love it!

I love this bag. When traveling by air, I bring an approved "carry-on" bag and use this shopping tote for my "personal item". I pack it with things I didn't put in my carry on and put my purse inside of it. I have an approved dog carrier for my dog (who travels with us sometimes and is small enough to go onboard - although sometimes her ticket is more than mine.) However, when we are out of town with "Pebbles" and go for a long walk, I bring the Briggs and Riley Shopping tote - if we go into a store, I put her in the tote (with her little head sticking out - she loves it) after leaving the store, I take her out of the tote and put the merchandise or groceries in the tote. It's perfect! So many uses. I LOVE all the pockets and compartments. The only done side is I have to hide the Briggs & Riley Tote as well as Pebbles soft dog carrier from her, otherwise she will jump in because she thinks we are going somewhere. LOL!

I am new to Briggs and Kelly products. I absolutely love my new backpack. It sits upright by itself, is perfectly balanced when carrying, as well as comfortable. Very well made. I had been a fan of Tumi for years, but won't buy another. They don't stand behind their products (2 failures for me) and Briggs and Kelly backs their products for a lifetime.

This bag is a nightmare rolling through the airport. It won't roll straight and I had to constantly fight the thing to make it roll right. It tips over going over any little bump and it made my hands, forearms and wrists sore. I will be returning it and getting the Rimowa Salsa Deluxe Hybrid.

I've been looking and looking for something like this and VIP Zappos can verify this. I have 3 pieces of Briggs and Riley luggage and after waffling because of the price, I finally bit the bullet and decided to spend more for something that I really wanted to begin with. Once my husband got over the sticker shock, he too agrees that it is a worthwhile purchase. It is compact, sturdy, and holds my toiletry and make up needs for traveling. As with all Briggs and Riley products, this is extremely well made and suits my needs perfectly. I usually buy all black luggage and accessories...but this time I went for the olive and it is really a great color. I take good care of my things and this should last for many many trips. Plus this is backed by Briggs and Riley's great warranty.

Very satisfied with this bag so far. It meets the new 2014 smaller carry-on size requirements, doesn't tip over easily, had plenty of room for clothes on a week long trip. The compressing feature works really well. My only complaints would be that the umbrella pouch on the back side between the handles is too small for all the umbrellas I've tried to fit in it. Also, if you use the compression feature and then realize you needed to put something more in the bag, it can be a little difficult to re-expand the two compressors to the fully expanded position without taking out clothes -- but it's possible (just takes a little feeling around and some finger work).

Amazing bag - fits everything, easy to carry on your shoulder or over the handle of your suitcase. Also fits under the seat in front of you on an airplane (as long as you don't need too much leg room). Great pockets to keep it organized. So happy with this purchase!
