I just took this bag to Europe for three weeks. Three countries later, I've decided it's my new favorite travel bag! The back pack straps are comfortable and stow really easily and flat. The bag itself is light enough that I was able to fill it completely and still be way under the 50 lbs. limit that the airlines require. Enough pockets to keep me organized, but not so many that I couldn't find things. The bucket style bottom kept my gear dry. Having all of the zippers on the side of the bag that was against my back is clever, I didn't have to worry about getting ripped off while walking through the train station in Barcelona. I recommend a backpack style bag over a wheeled duffed if traveling by train or ferry - lots of stairs, not many escalators or elevators! Well done Eagle Creek. A nice complement to this bag are the packing cubes that EC makes - helps you fit more in the bag and keep you organized!
This bag has a good capacity for a week-long trip, plenty of grab handles, shoulder strap, and compressor/reinforcement straps. Since it has no frame and no hip belt, it's not made for using as a pack to hike around once you reach your destination, rather just for short carry's around the airport and en route to your hotel. I'm a little concerned by the light-weight clips that attach the bottom of the shoulder straps to the pack, and hope they don't break at some point. It seems decent for the price, but not the right choice if you want to do some serious hiking with it at your destination.
