- Q & A
Nice, just not like the older version
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I have an Eagle Creek Convertabrief that is probably close to 20 years old. The zippers lasted up until a few years ago--a great run. I've tried to replace it with other models but nothing measured up for use as a briefcase with should-friendly backpack straps. I continued to use my old Convertabrief for business and as an airline carry-on even when I could only operate the zippers in one direction. When I saw Eagle Creek was selling a new model with the same name, I decided to take a chance. Alas, even with new features, it does not compare with the old version. The new one is longer, to accommodate a larger computer, but is narrower and so will not stand on it's own (unless, perhaps, you put a brick in the bottom). If you've ever taken a case to a meeting, you'll understand why this is important (no one wants their case sprawling on the floor) Even at this price, the new Convertabrief does not deliver for me. I am disappointed and am sending it back. One reason I ordered from BackCountry is that they had the pretty "stone" color. Delivery was fast, packaging was good.
Does this have a water bottle pocket when in backpack mode?
Unfortunately, this item does not boast a water bottle holder when it's in either the backpack or briefcase "mode."
Hope this helps.
