Perfect bag for carry-on purposes.
returned it immediatly
I returned mine- this bag looks very awesome- it's not up to the quality for the money- total Chinese low grade materials in my opionion - not what I expected - again looks cool but that's it- I went with an Ogio but really like the Eagle Creek best for this type of bag- the Eagle Creek has the no questions asked warantee that is the gold standard-
It has issues
I really want to love this bag, but it has a couple issues. First the good. Very cool looking, tons of pockets and organizational features. Sturdy construction. But (here comes the negative part) it feels heavy. A little heavier than 8 lbs.You really notice this when it's packed. And (this is the big problem) it won't stand up if you put anything in the front pocket. It topples over. They could have solved this by either making the wheels smaller or the two bottom stands/feet a bit longer. There's nothing worse than checking in at the airport and having your bag flip over and hit the person behind you in line. Or, trying to balance it with one leg as you're getting your tickets out of your backpack. And one more thing. They should have put simple backpack straps in a pocket like the Patagonia MLC wheelie. I always like having that option for 3rd world travel. Other than that, it's a great bag. Really, it has more positives than negatives. But that being said, the negatives are big ones. Not sure if I'll keep it or not at this point. Still debating.
Cool, but how cool?
Pretty cool bag. I like the features and how it's ready for someone to organize it neatly. Still debating whether or not it's worth $250. That would be my only gripe. I'm wondering if it's just the name that makes it expensive...
