I decided literally just yesterday that I need a cute and spacious bag that I could use for a weekend trip or to carry on my makeup, camera and other essentials on the airplane. To date, I’ve been stuffing my stuff into my boyfriend’s duffel bag (Sorry <3). I learned my lesson when the airline “lost” our luggage and I didn’t have any of my beauty stuff in my carry-on (luckily it showed up the next day). I was perusing my favorite website, Amazon.com when I found the perfect bag!! The Dakine Valise! I was torn between the satchel and this bag and I finally chose this one because it had the extendable handle and wheels. I’m very happy with my decision! I checked on Southwest’s website to see if the size of this bag complies with their restriction on overhead carry-on luggage and it’s “technically” one inch too long but I highly doubt that will be a problem.
It’s pretty heavy even with nothing in it so I’m sure I will mostly pull it on its wheels. I LOVE this bag and I can’t wait to use it this weekend!
Price: $95.00. I bought this on Amazon.com from Dogfunk (they have their own website too). Remember I said I ordered this yesterday? Yes that’s right, I received it today! Free shipping too! Boo-yeah!
Other places to buy: I don’t know where you can physically purchase this but other websites include the Dakine website, Backcountry.com (cheap, next day shipping) and possibly other online retailers that I do not know of. I suggest Backcountry or Amazon.com.
