I bought the 24 inch black bag. I read the dimensions, but it is still bigger than I anticipated. It will hold a week's worth of women's XL clothing, and will bulge nicely when overstuffed. It has 2 large zipper pockets that open from the exterior, but take up space on the inside of this Big bag, and one of them will hold shoes or wet clothes. The bag opens widely for easy packing. No internal clothing tie downs. The fabric is medium weight in everyday terms, not in mountain climbing terms, (600D polyester), and water resistant. The straps are thinner than I prefer, and the connections and buckles are plastic, but it has Jansport's lifetime warranty if something gives way. The adjustable handles can be lengthened considerably to serve as shoulder straps for backpack style running through the airport. I am going to use it as my grab-n-go bag already packed for car camping weekends. It will fold nicely as a stow away bag in your suitcase to tote home souvenirs. I would buy it again at the sale price.

I have had this lantern for nearly 2 years to light my way through electrical power outages. In fact, I sit here in total darkness right now except for my trusty lantern and the dim glow of a battery powered laptop. The lamp has been on high for 6.5 hours so far and shows no signs of battery fatigue yet. It throws a white light that very softly lights a decent sized room so I don't bump into furniture. If the lamp is positioned correctly I can comfortably read by it, and I can write, cook, and probably could sew by it if needed. The low setting looks much like the high setting. The night light's only value is for locating the lantern in the dark. If I am anticipating a power outage I turn on the night light before leaving home, and if I return to total darkness that handy little yellow glow tells me where I left the lamp. Both power cords store easily in the base, no headaches there. In protracted power outages I recharge the lamp from a 12V portable battery that I keep in my car's trunk. I recommend it, and I will buy another one in the future.
