The outside and the inside When I describe a portable travel bag, may I say "The outside and The inside"? Or can you tell me the native expression? Thank you in advance!

It’s not exactly clear what you are talking about. If you are talking about a small suitcase (行李)for example, it would be natural to refer to “the inside” (the main area) as compared to “pockets on the outside.” Or, you can say “The bag is yellow on the outside and black on the inside.”

Sure, that's fine. Example: The outside of my bag is black leather while the inside is lined with fabric.

The outside of my bag is grey with a lot of travel stickers, but the inside is pure Barbie pink. . The outside of this bag has a floral pattern, inside has cosmetics. The rain has soaked the outside, but the inside seems dry.
