Is the pan am logo on both sides?
The picture of the woman with the bag, is that the actual size of the ORION bag?
The Pan Am Brands Originals Orion Bag only has the logo on the front side of the item, and the actual size is depicted in the picture with the woman. -

PROS: I love the overall retro look and the sturdy feel. I ordered the white one and I was relieved when it showed up with dark blue lining to match the piping (the photo and description says light blue and so did customer service when I called to check). The bag seems pretty sturdy but it's also kinda heavy (almost 2 lbs empty) so I'm not sure if that's a pro or con. It has metal footings on the bottom (not pictured) and a cute little PAN AM emblem hanging on the side (also not shown). I'm a vegetarian, so I'm glad it's not leather, I'm sure people think that's a con, but for me it's a big PRO.
CONS: This may not be a con for most, but it is for me. The large PAN AM logo is printed on both sides. I only wanted it printed on the front with a small "PAN AM" in the bottom corner on the back like the Explorer bag (which I would've ordered instead but it doesn't come in white). When I asked customer service if there was anything on the back, they said no. -Well, apparently customer service only looks at the photos on their own site to determine their replies (which is pointless). Anyway, although I'm not crazy about the logo on both sides, it's not a deal-breaker for me and some people might like it but I listed it as a con. In all, the only complaint I have is that customer service isn't any help.

PROS: Very useful and trendy for a young professional who travels with her career.
CONS: when used heavily, the lighter color will soil, but can probably be cleaned with leather cleaner. Daughter asked for this replacement one but may consider cleaning old one.

PROS: The size is perfect and handles are comfortable. I can put just enough, but not too much in this carry on. Very cute, retro design, just like the old days. Item shipped very fast and email communication was timely.
CONS: It would have been nice to have at least one outside zipper pocket so I don't have to dig through it to get an item or two while it is stored under the seat in front. For that reason alone, I gave it four starts, but I am nonetheless very happy with my purchase.

PROS: Looks like the original bag from the 60's! Gonna give my age away here, but when I carried it on my recent trip, several people stopped me to compliment me on what good care I had taken of my bag! Hahaha! Love it!

PROS: It looks great, classic but fashionable. It is roomy enough to use as a carry-on or as a weekender bag. The material looks nice, not cheap at all. A really good value item.
CONS: I would have liked a pocket on the outside but it still works because I keep my boarding pass and passport in the handy Travelon holder.

PROS: This is a fun classic. We enjoy the challenge of packing in one bag for air travel and this is our favorite. It was shipped quickly and it was a great price.

PROS: It's perfect for carrying all the many things that a baby needs. Because it's such a nice quality, I'm thinking it will also make a nice weekend bag once we get past our baby girl's "diaper phase". Also, my husband is not embarrassed to carry it - which is a huge bonus :0>
CONS: No complaints

PROS: I got my Orion today and it is so nice. The quality and appearance are exceptional. I can't wait for Mexico, it will be my carry-on. It will also be great as a weekend get-away bag. I ordered the Pan Am Blue and it is very cute! Love it!!!
