PROS: Perfect small bag with tote for taking aboard a plane. Lightweight, compact, looks terrific. I ordered the black and LOVE that the lining isn't dark, it's beige, it has all kinds of handy pockets. I'll use the bag for carry-on luggage, to supplement checked luggage.
CONS: I haven't used it yet, however, since it's so lightweight I'm questioning if it will be very durable, but I wanted lightweight, I'm very happy with the product.
