I purchased the ramble to transport my backpack and related supplies across the country. I wanted protection for my gear that most backpack covers don't supply. I like that it is the largest bag you can use and still not pay oversize fees on the airlines, but it does have some drawbacks. It's easy to put too much weight in it, as it holds a lot. If airlines aren't an issue, it's great for just car travel. I like that it opens flat, but I wish the dividers weren't solidly attached so it could be reconfigured as the need arises. Now that I have it, I have used it for several trips overseas. It allows my husband and I to pack everything into one bag so we don't have to pay for 2 bags. I've had to stuff it with bubble wrap just to take up the extra room, but I wanted a large bag for bringing things home. Too bad it's been discontinued.
