This bag is bigger than the size allowed for hand luggage on most airlines. But if you're travelling by train or car for a long weekend away its a perfect size, the fabric is thick and pretty durable but the bag itself is not heavy. Its a simple bag, no fancy internal compartments and pockets, just lots and lots of room! there is a handy zip pocket on the outside for easy access to things like your keys. Good value bag, just what I needed.
