Verified Buyer Reviewed by Melissa from Hawaii on Thursday, April 9, 2015I've been on a quest to find the perfect travel bag, since I travel a lot. I wanted to get a backpack for places where wheeled bags aren't convenient, but it had to have a waist band, because without one, carrying a heavy backpack for long periods of time will put a lot of strain on your shoulders and back. I also wanted something with wheels because I don't want to carry something on my back when traveling if I don't have to. I also wanted something that was small enough to use as a carry-on because I hate those checked baggage fees, and I always try to travel light. This bag met all my requirements. I actually wanted to purchase this from Sierra Trading Post about a year ago, but they sold out. It's been on my wishlist ever since, so when I saw that it ws available, I didn't hesitate to get it.
During the year that I've been without it, I've tried a few different bags from different brands. I tried the Kelty Ascender bag, I tried the Osprey Transporter, and neither of them did it for me. Although I loved the look and the versatility of the Kelty, I found that it was uncomfortable to use it as a wheeled bag because the handle was a bit too short, and lacked a good place to grip it. Although it came with backpack straps, it didn't have a waistband, and you have to attach the straps to clips on the frame when you want to use them. Not a big deal, but not that convenient. With this Eagle Creek bag, though, the backpack straps are always attached. All you have to do is unzip the enclosure, and voila! I haven't taken this Eagle Creek bag on a trip with me yet, but I wheeled it around a little as soon as it arrived, and found that the handle is high enough that I don't think I'll have any issues with the bag hitting the back of my legs when I walk. I hate that.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Brian from Altoona, Pa on Tuesday, July 29, 2014I have not used this bag yet. The construction of the bag is very impressive. It is light for the features of the bag. I cant rate 5 stars without using the bag and seeing how it holds up but I have high hopes.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by The Traveler from Colorado on Thursday, June 26, 2014I ordered this rolling backpack as a hybrid option between the standard rolling suitcase that may not be appropriate when traveling through many countries or across uneven terrain and a camping/hiking backpack that I would also have to carry. The 22" is able to go in cabins, but can also be checked, which I like. It's great so far, although I haven't taken it on the 6 week trip across Europe and Mediterranean, a mixture of business and vacation. However, I have packed it and tried the backpack out, it fits me great! I'm 5/3", 110 lbs and the waist band is perfect. I love this bag so far, only reason for 4 stars is I haven't used it yet.
