Love this bag!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

If you travel for work this bag is perfect. Leave the main bag in the hotel room and keep the zip-off backpack with you at the trade show. On the plane the main bag fits easily in the overhead. Once off the plane you can reconnect the backpack for easy pickup at ground transportation. Good for about 4-5 days of fresh clothes if you are an experienced traveler.

Excellent Carry On Bag

    Thank you for this fantastic bag to carry on and to avoid checking luggage! The arm straps for carrying the bag is very convenient, but it reduces the storage capacity of the bag. The previous design of this bag did not have the arm straps and carried greater amount of clothes, etc.

    Great for many uses

      Both parts of the bags are comfortable and adjust well. Love all the pockets for organization. The re-enforced corners are especially nice. The zippers could be bigger and easier to use, but with a warranty like this I'll take my chances. Also the wheels aren't as burly as the Osprey version, but they are less obtrusive, so it depends on how much you're going to be carrying versus wheeling. The compression straps work well and it's small enough to carry on to the European airlines, which in the end is why we bought it. Orange color will be easy to spot at the airport.


        If you want a do it all rolling carry-on bag that converts into a backpack with the roller bag being secondary....ah hell. It just does it all while remaining waterproof and bomber. If you are active, have a fair amount of gear packing skill and at least semi-frequently fly, just get one. Now.
