Walter & Ray TAB Plus Messenger Bag & Seatback Organizer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes essentials easily accessible on plane I love this bag and have raved to fellow travelers about its benefits. The biggest benefit to using this bag is that there are multiple ways to attach it to the seat back/tray table area so that you don't have to crouch down to get your bag off the floor. I'm not usually a big fan of over-compartmentalized bags but this one does have many useful, just right pockets. The pocket for the phone is in the ideal spot! It took some time and dedication on my part to figure out what the features and benefits were before I purchased this in-store. The hang tag on the product really should be a series of photos instead of copy intense. The video I just watched on this website was far superior to the hang tag and many of the things shown in the video could be adapted to the tag so they can sell more of these bags. In fact, I learned of one additional way to attach the bag to the seat back while watching the video!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Organizer I bought this seat back organizer specifically for an overseas flight to Europe. I LOVE sitting in the bulk heat seats but hate the fact that there is never anywhere to put all the stuff I need for the flight. I was hoping that this bag would somehow attach to something and I could have my items handy for the flight. It did not disappoint. First of all, I was pleasantly surprised how much this holds. It may appear to be thin, but it really expands to hold a lot of stuff. I had my iPad, headset, chargers, hand lotion, chap stick, passport, etc. right in front of me the whole time. And BONUS,it even was wide enough at the top for me to have a place to lay a water bottle!. This worked through the airport as a "purse" and then worked fantastic on the flight. You can see in the picture, I hooked it onto the blue pamphlet holder that was on the wall. I highly recommend this for air travel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this bag This bag has been perfect for me. It has fit nicely in the pocket of all the flights I have taken it on and keeps everything I need within arms length. I get tons on compliments on it when I use it as a laptop bag at work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless Cannot be attached to the seat-backs of newer airplanes with newer seats; hooks don't fit. Does not attach to the seat-backs of older airplanes either. Does not attach to the tray table hook on any airplane I flew. I flew on 6 segments on my first trip with this bag. The only way I could attach it to the seat-back was to use the strap, which is too long for that use because the bag hits right where your knees are. And it's heavier than I expected. I'm returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great carry-on I used this on a trip to Paris. I worked on the plane and in the city like a charm. It's now my walk to work bag.

Are the straps and bag slash proof so it can be used as a travel purse?

Asked by: Gwen1
For travel bags, we recommend our Travelon Anti-Theft bags. These bags are made with slash-proof construction and includes RFID-blocking slots for your credit cards and passports.
