I already owned the large folding wheeled bag from Dakine and got this one because I wanted the same quality in a smaller version. Even though it's small, it holds lots of stuff and is very durable. The end pockets zip up so you can compartmenalize your stuff. The size of this bag is perfect for weekend trips or even slightly longer. I also like that the Dakine bags are unique looking and easy to spot on the airport baggage claim conveyer belts. Don't let that keep you from checking your name tag, though. My large Dakine bag is green and brown herringbone, extremely unique, who would have one of those, right? Well, both myself and another girl grabbed what we thought were our own bags, got them all the way home, and didn't realized we had the wrong bag until we went to unpack them. Thank goodness for phone numbers on luggage tags! After a good laugh, we met up and exchanged bags. Lesson learned!
