Just got back from Chicago - I checked a 22" roller and used my OMG for carry-on, with a purse (typical LeSportsac hobo - I love the light weight for travel) as my personal item. I like the OMG - I really love how it fits on the roller so nicely through the airport! But I'm used to a much larger nylon tote as a personal item (with a 20 or 22" roller combo) so it did feel small. I was only gone 4 nights so I didn't need a ton, but I felt a little crunched anyway. I didn't see a way I could have used the interior "shoe" bag either - would have taken up SO much space. And I decided not to take my laptop on the trip, thank goodness, because I don't think I could have made that work.....

I was doing really well at traveling light for a few years and have "crept" back up lately. Need to work on that!!!

The bag itself is still gorgeous and I adore it ;-)

I got one because I was looking for a weekender bag. It works just fine for that (or as the second carry-on item in conjunction with a carry-on suitcase). Handles a weekend's worth of smart casual wear just fine plus a laptop, all you would need to go out for a 2-4 day trip, and looks reasonably professional.

So I am looking at an OMG bag, but... my laptop is 15" (I am an accountant. I want a keypad ) Will it work at all? Sounds like I may have to look for another option!

Nope, 15" won't fit in the padded laptop section. Might squeeze into the main section, not sure, but then - you have wasted space because there are actually two padded sections already (I used one for my kindle)

I have a few questions for all those that have used the OMG bag. I just received mine (it was on sale). I wanted it for my personal item to take with a roller carry on from Travelpro. Has anyone used it as their personal item? What airline have you used it on? Has anyone questioned the size of it? Does it fit under the seat in front? I know. I know so many questions!! I do appreciate all the information I get from these forums. Thank you in advance! :-)

Yes, I used OMG as a personal item (we flew American which I don't normally fly so I can't remember the plane) and it did fit under the seat in front of me. It's smaller than some of the large nylon totes I typically use as a personal item (I have one Timbuk2 and one that's made from recycled sail cloth) Of course, the nylon is softsided and can be mushed into place, but if I have a larger tote, I often put more in it, so.....
