I bought this bag for my son who was at AIT and had extra stuff to haul home and then I was going to take it for a shopping bag for my mobility scooter. Not happening now, he loves it. It was a great investment. Having handles, shoulder strap or backpack straps makes it very easy to be the extra bag without being a full sized duffle (it can be locked with a TSA lock. Thanks again MLC for the advice and your wonderful service prior to this purchase.
