I researched "carry on" sized travel packs for about 2 weeks and finally decided on this one. The only down side is that I now realise I wasted 2 weeks researching "carry on" sized travel packs and should have just bought this one in the first place. HEAPS of positive reviews on it already and now I see why. You can also see it on youtube. I was hesitant about getting the red because in the pictures it looks quite bright but it's actually a bit of a darker red and looks great. Very happy with it.
