Great Bag! Roomy Enough and Stylish.
Used this bag for the first time for a 2+ week trip to Europe. I found it stylish and well-designed, and especially easy to roll and to lift.
While I could have fit in the 26", I was happy to have some extra room, and if you have less gear and tighten the outside straps on this bag, it gets fairly compact.
The upper outside pocket is roomy enough to hold a significant dob kit and a makeup case. The bottom outside pocket was bonus room.
The bag unzips completely giving easy access to all, and the inside of the black bag is red, which made me happy each time I opened it.
Our other bags are from the Eagle Creek ORV collection. While the fabric on The North Face doesn't seem as durable, I think the bag will still hold up well.
