      I just love my Travel Carryall, I can have my little knickknacks in there; I had went on a trip & had almost everything I needed to keep myself occupied if I ever got bored, I even had some of my toiletry stuff in there in case if I were to ever get stranded some place.
      It's just so awesome!

            I use this every day to hold my purse, smart phone and makeup bag. I can also fit a paperback or snacks and drinks for my two kids. Both side pouches easily accommodate a water bottle.
            I would recommend this bag to anyone.

                  I got the purple version of this. My favorite use is as a purse when traveling in a city. I'm not a person that uses a big purse, but for a day touring a city this is perfect. I can throw in my wallet, camera, phone, sunglasses, a water bottle, snacks, a scarf, an umbrella, and even gloves or light rain jacket if the weather is variable. Then when you don't need the whole bag, just pack it in your suitcase or backpack and it takes very little space. It's served me well on two overseas trips so far and hope to use it for many more.

                      Comments about Travex® Connect Ultralight Carryall:

                      Prior to leaving on a 3-week trip to Europe, I read all the recent reviews here and actually found the last black bag in my local EB store, as I was out of time to order online.
                      Don't hesitate to get one for your trip - the bag is great!
                      I travel overseas a lot, and have tried all sorts of shoulder bags, sling bags, backpacks, etc. This one seems to answer all my needs, especially the water bottle pouches.

                      It is extremely lightweight (feels like parachute material) and holds a lot. My main need was a suitable bag that I could carry a water bottle in all day long, along with small personal items (sunscreen, lip balm, tissues, etc) and this served the purpose perfectly!

                      Since there are actually 2 water bottle pouches at each end of the bag, it would be ideal in hot climates if you wanted to add the extra weight (and balance the bag) with a 2nd bottle. I carried a small 8 oz (240 ml) water bottle most days, and it tucks into the pouch perfectly. However, the bag easily handles two normal 16 oz (500 ml) bottles as well.
                      The outside zipper pouch was perfect for my large smart phone, keeping it away from the water bottle, yet when I carried the bag in crowded cities, I could feel the phone inside the bag and know that it was safe.
                      One caution: if you're looking for a thief-proof bag, this is not the one. It is such thin material that it could be easily slit with scissors by crafty pickpockets.
                      In busy European cities and Chicago, I wore a money belt with my credit card, cash and passport secured and not in the bag.

                      The main inside compartment is a good shape, but as another reviewer mentioned, the bag is SO lightweight that it virtually takes on the shape of the contents. This means that you could be digging in the bag for smaller items, and I ended up putting my small toiletries (eye drops, chapstick, etc) into a small wallet-sized zipper pouch on their own, just so I could find them in the loose bag. (Agreed though - the seams are well made and hold the overloaded contents well).
                      Because there's no fixed shape like a heavier bag, it is easy to add several maps, small souvenirs, etc. I suppose you could add a compact rain jacket as well, but on that day I needed one, I opted for my EB lightweight backpack, and soon regretted it because I liked this bag much better. Plus this bag was cooler in 80-90 degree weather than having a lightweight backpack on your back all day.

                      The shoulder strap is STRONG and yet comfortable and soft enough to wear on the shoulder for 14-hour days of sightseeing and walking. (I'm VERY sensitive about shoulder straps and never like nylon straps, but this one passed the picky-test :)
                      The strap held its position, yet I could extend it easily enough to sling the bag completely over the shoulder to wear it across my body for more security and to distribute the weight. When it got heavy, I simply slid it around to the other shoulder - something I would never do with a traditional shoulder handbag that is balanced on one shoulder. This is a big plus when you're carrying it and walking all day!

                      There's a smaller inner zipper compartment as well - in the inside top half of the bag, where you could put keys and small personal items, and this is on the opposite side o the bag from the outer zipper pouch. I'm new to EB products, and it shows the thought that EB designers put into this simple yet efficient bag, to distribute the weight and NOT put both extra compartments on one side of the bag.

                      We were fortunate to not have any rain in Europe, but I suspect that would be the main drawback - it's not waterproof but seems to be slightly water repellent, a trade-off for being extremely lightweight.
                      If I spend an entire day in the rain, I would probably just put my cell phone inside a ziploc bag to keep it dry. If you're looking for a bag that is fully waterproof, you'll have to go with another product that weighs more.

                      The black bag served me for travel, nice dinners, church, hiking and touring. Because it's black, no one really notices it at all - just what I wanted in an all-purpose travel bag!
