Cyndeesh I use this for my work back that I carry my laptop and other items back and forth with. I love it, it's very sturdy, good wheels, the handle is secure, and I love all the pockets.

MBAmechanic I am a full time worker and a part-time student. I have been going to school at night after work for over 10 years. That means I have to have my school books with me almost every single day. At first I was using a back pack like everyone else to carry my books with me to work, but after a couple of years of that my back was starting to experience extreme pain in the spine. I found out it was because the weight of the books bobbing up and down in my back pack started to compress the disks in my spine with a jackhammer like effect.



I had to get the load off fast to save my back and still go to school with my books. I had seen these small roll around totes use by flight attendants who work for the Airlines so I decided to give them a try. My desire for this product was in terms in terms of function. I was not trying impress anyone, so price was the deciding factor. I bought one cheap bag after another only to have the wheels wear down to useless stubs after a few months. I walk many miles each year in New York City and some of the sidewalks are very rough, with an abrasive surface. I got sick of these bags wearing out and then a few years ago I bought one of these Olympia totes with the 4 skate type wheels, 2 of them in each corner. The price was relatively inexpensive compared to the fancy name brands, but what amazing performance. Because of the bearings the wheels can withstand wear better and they have a lower rolling resistance too. When I walk through the school library with my bag in tow the wheels do not make too much noise either. The price was relatively inexpensive compared to the fancy name brands, but what amazing performance. The wheels on this bag far outlast any others on the market. I can get 2 or more years out of them (I walk 3 to 5 miles a day in all types of weather) Olympia bags are superior to anything I have ever tried. While they are not the cheapest, for me Olympia offers the best value proposition for my needs. Lots of places in New York sell roll around bags, but the only one I buy is the Olympia brand with the quad wheel set.



If you want to take around your books and laptop etc, in your travels each day, and yet save your back, without breaking the bank, the Olympia brand of roll tote with the quad wheels is the only way to go.

Thelonemonk I have been searching for a roller bag with a long enough handle that would easily fit into overheads on all (or almost all ) aircraft and that had enough room for two days of clothes. I found it in this bag! First of all, the bag has great wheels and a perfect height retractable handle. I am 6'2 and some handles just are not long enough on smaller roller bags. Not to worry if you are a little less tall, the handle is adjustable. My 5'7 daughter tried it at a lower level and it was perfect.

Secondly, the bags dimensions and convenient handles allow you to hoist it up into the overhead bin with little effort. It fits nicely in the bin and allows room for your overcoat or suit jacket in front of the bag in the bin. Most roller bags don't allow enough room and you resort to putting your coat on the side or on top of your bag leaving it open to being squished by the next person.

There is plenty of compartment room with plenty of zippers. I found that it was quite easy to extract my 1-quart see-through toiletries bag from the front pocket for scanning. There are two main interior compartments . One is quite large and it took me a few times to learn to pack it correctly, as it is wider at the bottom. The second compartment is great for a pair of nice pants and shirt. It is kind of a flat compartment and works to keep pressed items from wrinkleing. I t would also be perfect for carrying documents.

The one very minor drawback is that when the handle is extended the items in the flat pocket are somewhat exposed. Not enough to allow anything to fall out, but might be a concern if something were to be spilled on top of the bag while the hand;le was out. When the handle is re-tracted there is a zippered cover for that area. It is only a minor flaw and I was able to make an adjustment to correct this problem.

Huckaby I was so impressed when I opened the box with my new computer bag inside. It was light, roomy, efficient, and so easy to handle. And there is room to pack clothing if I need to travel for a night. I love this bag! It replaces a heavy, bulky, hard to maneuver bag that always got me frustrated, especially in airports. My new bag is so easy to handle no matter how fast I need to move to reach my connection flight. I should have purchased another in case the new one ever wears out!!!

chickachick Our entire department at work bought cases from a variety of sources and I bought this one. The others have shredded the backs of theirs on cement curbs and steps, but this one has a hard plastic guard that protects it. It's quiet, moves effortlessly on floors and sidewalks and holds a BUNCH! I decided to order another one for my home computer and to use as an overnight bag, as advertised. The first will stay in service for work laptop and serve as my briefcase. I LOVE this bag!

RevDeb1 this bag appears, when empty and closed, to be well made and put together well, but as soon as you pack it and then close the zippers, there is a gap between the back zipper and the handle that cannot be closed if the handle is extended. It allows whatever you packed in the back compartment to be clearly seen and possibly fall out. I think this is a serious defect in the bag.

Otherwise, it moves fine and is light enough.

cherylinct I am currently in school in the medical field and was in need of a rolling briefcase. I looked at rolling backpacks and had a rolling briefcase, but they weren't big enough. I love this bag. It fits my very large textbooks as well as my notebooks and the price was just right for the quality of the bag. I HIGHLY recommend this rolling bag. I also look forward to using for a trip. It is very roomy!

Kilikina After reseaching various products and reviews, I chose this laptop carrier. I badly needed to take the weight of my laptop and files off my back. So far, the carrier has stood up to all the other reviews. I am so glad I bought it.

The only reason I am not giving 5 stars for appearance and durability is because I have to own this for a little longer to really know how it holds up. ;)

Naveen123 This product is worth 5 star rating.

Reason I am rating it 4 -

- Its kind of too big. Not really suitable for daily use, though I use it daily to work.

- bottom document box is not coompletely secured. When you walk in rain, water can directly get inside and spoil your documents. There is a open gap from where handle goes out and document compartment.
