Eagle Creek Flip Switch Backpack 22 Review:


Ridiculous. Returning

The bag is fine as a rolling carry on if you detach the back pack straps and throw them away. Unfortunately, this still leaves some large foam pads in the bag, taking up useless space. I wanted the ability to carry the bag as a back pack as well. The straps "innovatively" attach in the front of the pack, not the back. The idea is that it is more comfortable to carry via the front, instead of with the frame against your bag. Perhaps true, but now you crush your belongings against your back, squishing your toiletries or having your camera jam into your spline.
The worst parts about the design is that the straps take up too much room, and it takes too much time to put it in back pack mode. If I have a set of stairs or a long walk over uneven terrain, I want to quickly zip open the back pack straps and throw the bag on my back. This bag requires unzipping, adjusting velcro, and attaching the straps in four different places. Something I don't want to do on the street or in a crowded airport. Plus, when stowed, the straps take up about 4 inches of interior pack space!

REI used top make a simple "Stratocruiser" wheeled back pack that was perfect, but they have "improved" the model with a higher price tag and useless features like a attached day pack that makes it too big to fit in an overhead compartment. I wish I could still buy the older REI model.
