it is a relatively good looking shopping bag
By Alexandra L
I purchased this bag to bring groceries from my car (parking garage) into my condo. I live in a highrise building and I only use it indoors; it is rolling very well on hardwood, concrete and marble floors. It also rolls very well on a hallway carpet, which is not very fluffy. It doesn't roll on a fluffy carpet inside my place when it is full of groceries. I am able to fit a lot of stuff in this bag, please see photo attached. And also, it is a relatively good looking shopping bag, much better than these metal carts that are heavy and make tons of noise.

First time using a rolling bag; it's working well
By Green Eyes
I've never had one of these and have resisted getting one as looking "old-lady-ish." But a broken arm and shoulder injury finally convinced me of the necessity and after much looking and reading reviews, I chose this one.
What I like:
**The plain black looks smart and professional.
**The handle comes up far enough to reach my hand without bending over (I'm 5'8").
**The handle retracts and pulls up easily.
**The straps let me carry it over my shoulder when I need to (boarding a bus or walking up steps).
**It seems quite sturdy.
Not so much:
**The weight of the bar makes the bag heavier than I'd been expecting.
**The wheels are pretty noisy when it's rolling along.
**I wish it had those wheels that turn completely around.
**It doesn't have as much room inside as I'd thought, not enough for a big grocery shopping.
Overall though, I like it, considering I'm still getting used to using it. It's definitely better than carrying two huge bags, loaded down like a pack animal.
I'm still using this bag, 3 or 4 times a week, stuffed full of either groceries or books and teaching supplies.
Two photos are attached. The first shows its still good condition even after 9 months hard use. The 2nd shows how much it held after a recent shopping trip.

So much nicer than luggage
I am a frequent traveler. I fly once or twice a week from May to October, then a twice a month during the winter months. I carry a 17" laptop, and a small purse on every flight. I usually check a bag (frequent flyer bonus) so I don't have to mess with it on the plane. I don't use a wheeled laptop case, they are too heavy, bulky, and cumbersome. Plus, I don't like to have to valet it if I have a connecting flight to make, since that can take extra time, so I carry a very small, shoulder bag for my laptop that fits under my seat. I explain all this so you will understand why I like this bag.
This bag weighs no more than 4 lbs. It is made of canvas, and has an extending handle for wheeling. The handle pops up tall enough to be comfortable no matter your height. It does not look like "an old-lady bag" which was important to me. I wanted something I could slip my 17" laptop into, as well as my purse. They get heavy if I have to walk far to catch a connection. With this bag I can slip those two items in easily and wheel them around, then at the gate, the bag just pops on my shoulder and I can carry it on. If the plane is TOO small, and they suggest I valet it, I just take my items out, and flatten the bag, and ask if I can just take it on like that. It works great.
The wheels are durable and sturdy. I prefer the inline skate type wheels and this bag has them. There is a small, flat pocket on the back side of the bag where I can put my travel paperwork, and not have to fish for it. The fabric handles are long enough for this case to easily be thrown over my shoulder.
I have a giant laptop, and was worried this bag might not be wide enough, but it is far larger than I hoped, almost a little too large (I wish it were just an inch or two shorter actually), but I would not trade it for any wheeled briefcase. I have used those and dislike them. They don't fit under the seat, and they are heavy to lift overhead.
I plan on buying one more of these bags in another color and sharing with my daughter. This is by far the simplest and most useful piece of luggage I own - and SO affordable.
