Customer Review

I love this bag. Packs a lot of stuff and still fits under the seat, even when underseat area is reduced in size by a media or electrical box. Very light, but sturdy with lots of external pockets.

I also have the Travelpro Crew 11 Cary-on 
Travelpro Crew 11 Deluxe Carry-on Under Seat Tote Bag, Black , which I also like a lot, but I like this one better. The Crew 11 has organizers on the inside, but I find I prefer having the side pocket on this one -- it is easy to reach from an airline seat without pulling the whole bag out. I use it to hold my glasses and a spare battery; things I'll need to take out and put away during the flight. The Crew 11 has a more deluxe feel and more padding but is slightly smaller; the Crew 11 top handles are more comfortable but don't have the handle cover that turns the two handles into one handle. The shoulder strap on the Crew 11 has more padding. As sold, the Maxlite 5 weighs slightly less than the Crew 11, maybe 8oz (225g) but most of the weight difference is in the strap; with strap removed, the Maxlite 5 is only about 3oz (75g) lighter. The side pocket is the clincher for me and I prefer the Maxlite 5; if you need organizational compartments on the inside or won't use the outside pocket, you'll probably prefer the Crew 11.
