I have just finished a 12 day trip to China, taking only carry on luggage. This was the first time I used my new Dakine Overhead bag, and I have to say, I love it! I have been in the airline industry for 19 years, and I travel a lot for leisure. I always take carry on only, and it's important to be able to fit the maximum possible. I don't know how you do it, but it seems like you can never fill this bag! It is so well designed, and things are easier to retrieve from it than from other carry on bags. The only shortcoming that I can see is that when the bag is standing, there are no feet to keep it sturdy, and I like to have my laptop knapsack sitting on top of the bag. This however, is a small price to pay for all the positive benefits. I will certainly be looking to other Dakine luggage products in the future. Oh and by the way, your company was so easy to deal with online. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with you again and again!
