    I took a 10-day trip to Trinidad and wanted a bag that could hold enough clothes for the trip, that I could carry on the plane for the trip down and check with my extra stuff on the way back, and that wasn't difficult to lug around. I ended up buying both this bag and a convertible bag from eBags and kept this bag. The Rick Steve's bag is bigger, expandable, and has wonderful deep front pockets that will hold anything (no useless pen loops or id holders). However, the material is not fantastic--feels like elementary school backpack material--and the zippers are small and don't appear especially durable. Also the straps and waistbelt are narrower and less padded than I had hoped (the eBag had nice wide heavily padded straps). The best thing about this bag is that it seems to be able to hold huge amounts and still be small enough for the over-head compartment. The inside compression straps help achieve this and the outside straps (that don't go around the whole bag) help too. Overall, a very nice bag that I find myself using all the time.

    This bag was so good that we bought a second one. Lived out of them for 2 1/2 weeks in Europe this summer. We also bought a set each of the Rick Steves' packing cubes, which exactly fit inside the convertible carry-on bag. Lots of compartments, thoughtfully placed, and some bonus internal cinch-sacks and a "secret" document pouch that clips into the bottom of the bag. The material is strong enough for its use and you will simply not believe how much can be packed in this bag. If you are familiar with Rick's travel philosophy (travel light and carry-on) this is the perfect bag. You will not find a bag with as many thoughtful details as this bag for twice the price. For more on Rick's travel philosophy and travel suggestions get his book Europe Through the Back Door. Invaluable.

    I bought this carry-on suitcase to pack all of my things in for a 8 day trip to Greece. It held more than I needed and fit in the overhead baggage compartment. The backpack straps were great for carrying the suitcase through the airports and elsewhere.

    There are many pockets (I didn't even use all of them). And the extra space gained from unzipping the expandable section helped me to fit in all of my purchases. Other people even commented on how nice my suitcase was.

    I was impressed with how much it held, how flexible it is and how sturdy the construction. I'll purchase another as a gift for a friend who saw mine and love it.

    I can't begin to tell you what a great bag this is. I must have tried most on the market. I like it better then my rolling bags.

    The only suggestion I would make is to include a shoulder strap--I went out and bought one of my own which further enhaced the functionality of the bag.

    Great bag, perfect for light weekend trips to long 2 week trips. All the hardware is well made, strong and durable. The best part is that it will give you the most flexibility and storage in comparison to a stiff piece of luggage. My favorite bag without question. A completely unbiased review.

    Like I said in the title, this is the best bag I have every purchased. I lived out of this bag for 9 days in Paris. Very roomy when fully expanded. I also recommend buying the Rick Steve's cube set for packing. This should be the only bag you will ever need.

    This is the second of these ordered this month. The first one was so ideal for the travel intended that the second was ordered for the second traveler. It has numerous compartments that are easily accessible while on the go. All of the handles and cinch down straps help to secure the contents and ensure the most comfortable movement withou shifting balance. It was much better than I would have anticipated and appears at this early portion of our trip to be perfect.

    My wife and I ordered one each for a two week vacation to Italy. I was amazed at how much stuff we could pack into these bags and still count the bags as carry on (folks at Air France almost seemed disappointed when the bag fit into the size tester...they were having a field day making people check their bags that day). The bags were comfortable on our backs and made traveling from place to place easier than I expected. I would definately recommend to anyone who has a busy itinerary.
