I love it! Lots of space, rolls easily and the perfect size as a carry on.
Great Bag for Carry-On Travelling
This bag can hold a lot of stuff and is large enough that you don't have to 'roll up' all your clothes to fit everything inside. I like that the bag zips wide open for easy packing, and has a mesh compartment that allows easy access for clothes, stuff you need to get to quickly. The front contains 2 outside pockets which are perfect to pack shoes, gloves, scarves, etc.
I was a bit concerned when I first packed the bag that it did not 'stand up' (the bottom of the bag does not have 'plastic feet' like other bags I've seen). Once I better distributed the clothes inside the bag, the bag stood with no problems.
Lastly, I had no problems getting the bag to fit in the overhead compartment which was one of the reasons why I bought the bag.
Phunk's girlfriend says: This bag held way more than I expected it to, based on its capacity numbers, but it still fit in the overhead compartment of all the planes I've taken it on. It's got a good sturdy feel when rolling it around and tossing it in and out of cabs. Fun colors, as usual, from Dakine.
Bag's everything I thought it would be - your standard carry-on with an additional zipper compartment on the top after flipping it open. carries and maneuvers easily and well.

Is it really small enough to be able to carry it on the plane and fit under the seat or in the overhead bin?
Yes that is why it is called the Overhead bag. It was specifically made for that reason.
I went with the 2500cu in size instead of the 3000 cu in and am quite glad. I have plenty of room for everything that I need for a short trip. Also it is a great carry on and for long trips I'm able to squeeze in plenty of extra cloths etc. The two pockets on the front make easy access to your ipod, books etc. It is a super durable bag and easy to wheel around behind you while traveling. I would highly recommend this.

Why do some of these have a normal handle and others have a wierd T-shaped handle? And, does it matter, or are they both equally comfortable and easy to use?
Thanks for your help!
These actually all have the the T-shaped handle. The "Pink Plaid" is an out dated photo.

Great roller have beat the holy S*#T out of mine and looks like new, travel a lot for work, and am amazed every time how much I can fit in it. Always over stuffing it and zips every time.
