Okay, so I have 3 MLC bags under my belt. I have absolutely loved them all. For longer trips, I have discovered the need for more space-economic luggage that can fit all my clothes and shoes and whatever, as well as a pillow and blanket. Because sometimes you gotta' supply your own. Whatever. To say I was absolutely shocked at how much stuff I could fit in this bag and not even strain the capacity, is the height of understatement. I fit a big, fat memory foam pillow rolled up neatly like a sleeping bag in there, a big, fluffy blanket, clothes for 7 days, a pair of tennis shoes, all the toiletries, and, AND a freaking stuffed animal for the freaking heck of it, because the space in that thing is so absurd, something absurd was coming with me on the inaugural trip. That thing completely blew the suitcases and chunky bags it rode with that respectively held the same, or a little less, amount of clothing and crap as this bag did. And they all took up at least twice the space as this thing. So, if you're obsessive about packing as space-economic as absolutely possible, I cannot recommend this bag enough. MLC literally never disappoints.
