I haven't really used the trunk yet, but I have explored it pretty well. It's got a lot of capacity and with many of the Eagle Creek packing accessories, I think it will hold a lot of stuff. The water-tight compartment on the bottom of the trunk is a great feature, and the fact that you can load the trunk in the upright position will greatly eliminate shifting of the contents. It's got big external pockets and comfortable straps and handles. I think it'll be this traveler's dream luggage.
