I bought this item to use as an airline carry-on bag to meet specifications. I flew Amer. Airlines to MIA. Did not have any issues. I was able to fit 4 jeans, 3 shorts, 3 dress shirts, 5 T-shirts, 8 underwear, 8 pair of socks, flip flops, a baseball cap, documents, a blanket, small electronics (camera, phone chargers, cables, etc), and some food snacks all in this one bag. I put my shoes and bets/ accessories in another carry-on (that I also reviewed and bought from Wal-mart for the trip). No issues at TSA or the AA gate. No issues with fitting in overhead bin. I threw it around pretty good throughout the trip (I am hard on luggage), not caring if it tore because I have other luggage and this was something cheap just for the occassion. No rips, tears or functional issues with zippers or anything. Overall, a great bag that I will be using again and would recommend to anyone needing a good travel bag with adequate space.
