I am a big fan of Revlon hair products and have used this hair dryer for a number of years. I like the air pressure (not to much, not to little) and the fact that you can alternate the flow by using a diffuser if you want a more sleek look. It's light weight and easy to travel with, although if you're really economizing with a small travel bag, an actual "travel size" hair dryer would obviously work better. I appreciate the length of the chord as well... some of the ones I've used in the past don't allow you to move very far away from the outlet and if you have a deep counter top, this can make things difficult. Also if you're chasing a rambunctious 5-year-old around the bathroom, it helps to have a little slack. The heat settings are great as well. So if I am using it on my kids I can set it to the warm setting or if I have used a curling brush on the heat setting I can set the curl with a final touch on the "cool" setting.
