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!

Can't go wrong with B&R. My last bag lasted 10 years of road warrior work. It was always over packed. Broke the straps and had them replaced once. I just called and they sent new ones. This is the toughest back pack made.

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!

This tote is ginormous. I purchased it for a 15.9" laptop. The description says that it fits up to 17" laptops, but what it doesn't mention is that there is no laptop sleeve inside the bag to protect your laptop from your other belongings - the laptop just kind of hangs out in the middle of the bag. And, once the laptop is in there, you can't really put anything else inside for fear your laptop will get scratched up. Very cute bag, but sorry, had to return.

Love this bag. Many spinners are actually difficult to push but this one was easy, which was really surprising because it is so big. I also love the color and the fabric; it looks great and stands out from all the black bags at the luggage claim!

Friends recommended B&R and I trusted them and purchased the carry-on. I used it for the first time last week and it was great. The guarantee is what I like most because I travel often.

I splurged on the B&R Torq medium spinner, and the small spinner with the front panel. I wanted a suitcase the airlines weren't going to rip or crush. They roll well on carpet, and I like to roll it beside me or in front of me. They're a bit smaller than my previous carry-on. The locking front panel / pocket for a laptop or tablet is a nice idea, but it takes up a lot of the room in the lid, so you can't use that space for packing. Plus, it won't hold the power cables, etc. that go with the laptop, so that's a problem. The front panel / pocket is hard sided and has no give. B&R just came out with this new wide body carry on Torq spinner that is a bit wider and does not have the front panel / pocket. It has more internal room for packing, because it lacks a side handle, the front panel and the secret pocket between the handles that the front panel case has. It's also much lighter than the front panel case. It didn't come with a strap to attach to the larger case, like the front panel case did. Both small cases have pros and cons. Both small suitcase fit inside the medium spinner (only one at a time). All come with slipcovers, so you can keep the inside of the larger case clean when you stack them inside each other for storage. I'm keeping all three. So far any scuff marks from baggage handling have come off easily with a little GooGone. Minor scratches barely show. I'm very happy with these 3 suit cases. Briggs and Riley will replace any defective part free of charge, no questions asked.

This bag didn't work for me, but I was expecting it to do something it wasn't designed to do. I was hoping that it would be a really nice case for holding my sewing machine and its accessories. I was hoping for good storage and the ability to travel with it. However, it's about 1 or 2 inches too small in all dimensions. I currently have a cheap case from Joann Fabrics that looks very similar for my sewing machine, and I just don't like the cheapness of it. I wanted a good case, and I have other Briggs & Riley luggage, which I love. Unfortunately, this may be a great airplane carryon, but it does not work as a sewing machine case.

Just returned from a 10 day trip to Europe and carried this bag. It went from plain to train to hotel, all carry on. This bag can hold a lot and is easy to navigate. I like the "cruchers" on the inside. Fill, close, then squish down. Great innovation.

I splurged on Briggs & Riley TORQ medium spinner. I wanted a suitcase that the airlines weren't going to rip the fabric, like my last suitcases, or crush the stuff inside. I'm very happy with this suitcase. I love all the features. Mostly, I bought it for the B&R guarantee, although I hope I never have to test that. The ruby color is gorgeous. The zipper and locks work well. The wheels on this spinner work great on carpet. I like to wheel the bag beside me or in front of me.

Holds my laptop with room enough for a my tablet and change of clothes. Perfect for an overnighter. This is my 3rd purchase of Briggs and Riley and I've never been disappointed.

This is an excellent size for travel. It's also lightweight and well constructed. I've used other similar totes and this is, by far, the best for my needs.

I already own the Briggs & Riley Baseline wide body carry on and love it. I travel a ton and have dragged it all over the world. My current upright just "died" and I decided to replace it with this one. Briggs & Riley repairs for free for life. Everything about this bag is awesome, but the way the bag expands is super and the way it connects bags together to drag through the airport is also quite superior. Never have to worry about attaching or losing a strap...just pull it out of its zipper pocket, wrap it around the next bag, click, and go! My husband is envious of these bags and is waiting for his current suitcases to "die" so that he can buy one, too.
