Here is The Traveling Professor's Travel Product of the Month:

eBags Mother Lode Mini 21” Wheeled Duffel

For those who carry-on their luggage, this is a product designed just for you.  We’ve been using it for over a year now and as a carry-on luggage product, this is what we like about it:

Never had a problem bringing it on any airline and stowing in the overhead bins.
Lightweight yet durable.  Like we said, we’ve dragged it over 100,000 air miles and on many of our small group tours to Paris, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, and Iceland.   On our personal trips we’ve taken it on trains, busses, subways, taxis, ferries, planes, and even vaporettos domestically and internationally.
Expandable.   The expansion zippers give more expansion space when needed.  Tie downs let the bag compress.
It is steady while wheeling.  It won’t tip over either while standing up.
Plenty of easily accessible compartment.
I don’t know where they get all the space in this bag, but it seems to fit everything.
Hard backing makes me feel comfortable storing fragile items.
Fashionable colors. 
Lifetime warranty.   I use my bag A LOT.  Will let you know how they do in honoring the warranty when something goes wrong – but it hasn’t yet.

What I wish they would improve:

How about a sleeve to easily insert and retrieve magazines and travel documents?
