I've only used this bag on two trips thus far, but I love it so much I had to provide a review. The design of this bag is flawless. Let me first say that when I purchased this item, I did not realize there was one side designed for hang up items. If you NEVER need to hang up clothes then this may not be the best bag for you however, I've used that side to hang up items I've traditionally folded. There are design features that I never realized I would need, but once I found them I realized how useful they are (like you can hang your bag on the closet pole and never have to unpack). It has an incredible amount of room assuming you use both sides. I've found that I'm starting to over pack for weeklong trips because I have the room available. Absolutely love this bag!!

This bag is great for someone who needs fully half of their carry-on space devoted to hung garments. If on the other hand you only need a couple shirts and a jacket, you will find the "main" compartment too small for most trips.
I should also note that I have contacted B&R customer care for several times over several weeks attempting to return and exchange the bag, and have gotten no response from firstname.lastname@example.org. I am quite disappointed in this level of customer service.

This bag has traveled around the world, checked in baggage, carry on to Vegas, tossed around like a rag doll on transatlantic flights from the USA- ORD, JFK, EWR, IAD, LAX, CVG,MIA, MSP, HOU, DFW and ATL. For 10 years of abuse this bag is as good as it was the first day I purchased it. Carry on baseline 21" non-expandable. I LOVE MY LUGGAGE! So much that I bought the large non expandable for my trip from IAD to Denpassar, Bali. I also have the train case that has been my road trip savior for toiletries. (discontinued product ). My B&R backpack carries all of my camera gear and i pad. Fits overhead easily and or beneath my seat. Every dollar spent on this line has been well worth the work I did to earn it.

perfect for an overnight or a week
Except for the fact that if doesn't wheel down most coach aisles, this bag is amazing. I can fit 2 pairs of shoes, and over a weeks worth of clothing in this thing. It's durable and lightweight. No need to fold anything, just lay everything down flat, fold it in half and go. I travel every week for work and this bag is easy to pack, pickup and maneuver. I strongly recommend it for any road warrior.

THE perfect carry-on
I have been using a Tumi bag for years and it has taken a beating. I have been on the hunt for over a year for a bag to replace my Tumi carry-on garment bag – which has a horizontal or landscape orientation as opposed to this bag which has a vertical orientation. The issue with the landscape orientation is that it is too wide to roll down airplane aisles or to fit in narrow airport bathroom stalls. I am 5' 10" and am on the road 4+ days a week so I needed a bag that could fit a decent quantity - my toiletries, flatiron for my hair, an entire week of business clothes/shoes along with workout wear/shoes and a couple of casual outfits. I also need a bag that has a long telescoping handle so my heels are not constantly getting hit while wheeling it through the airport/hotels.
I have been traveling for years and have gotten very particular about what I need/want in a piece of luggage. I need a garment bag feature for my work shirts and suits, I want built in compartments for my socks/underwear and toiletries including makeup and liquids, and enough room for all of my other gear. I was very reluctant to try this bag because my Tumi bag seems to have a lot of room and I wasn’t sure if I would be able to get everything I need into this two compartment bag. I have fallen in LOVE with this bag! It fits everything I need with room to spare! And mind you I am a 40 year old woman. Yes, I try to travel lightly but I still probably bring along more than most men. I love being able to put my shoes in a separate compartment and keep my sweaty workout wear out of the garment bag compartment. There are all sorts of zippered compartments to stow everything you need. The telescoping handle is tall!! And I can now get down the aisle and into narrow bathroom stalls easily. The wheels seem very sturdy and it rolls incredibly smoothly. In addition, I travel with a rolling laptop bag and it fits nicely on top of the garment bag and I can navigate quickly. This is seriously the best bag ever designed!

I have been looking to buy this piece of luggage for over and year. I bet I've done more research and reviewed more comparators than just about anyone would tolerate. I had to know that I was getting the right luggage for my carry-on needs. Really, there is nothing that compares to this quality piece of luggage. It fits PERFECTLY in the SWA overhead bins. It's a breeze to roll it behind me down the aisles of the plane. My first trip I placed two suits on the garment side WITH ROOM TO SPARE (I really think I could fit 3 suits in there). The non-garment side is very roomy. The outside pockets could not be any better. Plus, there's a small pocket tucked in between the rails of the handle to put a water bottle in while you're sitting there waiting for your flight or just walking through the airport. The quality and craftsmanship of this piece of luggage is unmatched.
