I purchased this bag right before leaving for Africa. I went on many planes, trains, cars and it held up well.
The compartments inside were very nice to have, especially when I didn't have any laundry service!
Love the design and the look of the bag.
My one negative thought was when I was wheeling it around I noticed it was heavy on my arm. It is more vertical than what I am used to, so the weight distribution was different.
