I waited to review this until after I used it for a crop weekend. I flew to a crop weekend and used this. Previously I'd loaded up my car with every cardmaking tool I owned -- the only challenge now was determining what I HAD to take vs what I WANTED to take! All told, i fit everything in here but found myself removing items ... to keep it under the 50 pound airline bag limit! You can get a lot in here -- and you'd be surprised how heavy a lot of paper and punches can be! But in the end, it traveled extremely well (44 pounds going to the crop, 48 pounds coming back!). seems the baggage handlers managed to keep it upright too! My only wish is that the zippers could accomodate TSA-approved locks -- there's one little lock but could be cut by TSA. so i swallowed hard, put a travel strap around it, and hoped the unlocked compartments on all 4 sides (including the top) didnt unzip! (they didn't) But definitely a good investment, especially for those of us that travel or carry our stuff around!
I already own one of these (for three years) and ordered a second one. This product is very sturdy and withstands the abuse of my travels to scrapbooking event 2 to 3 times a week for the past year ( and I've even taken it on a plane). It offers the most space of all the totes out there. As well you have many possibilities on how to organize you material inside the tote itself as it has adjustable/removable dividers. The handle is comfortable, the wheels are very sturdy, the zippers are resistant to heavy use. You have straps that hold your tote lid up for easy access while you work on your project and it hold tons of stuff. The see several see through pockets make it easy to locate your stuff. It's great.
I received my new XXL Tote and wondered why I did not purchase this item earlier. This product for the price you can not beat.
The size alone you can not image. There is so much room to put all of your scrapbook items that you do not need anything else. The contruction of the tote is so sturdy that it will last a life time.
I am recommend it to everyone.

Great way to get organized for crops! I also now use it to store my bin of scraps, basic colors of cardstock, album I'm working on and my WIP (works in process) album with page kits I'm prepping and photos for each project!
So much better than stacking boxes and bags and making several trips to pack and unpack!
