Cons

    Best Uses

      Love the new design. It is NOT 'all ways secure' The laptop compartment is secure when wearing the backpack as the straps are in front of the zipper but it does not have a locking zipper (some zippers have the small holes in the zipper that are designed to put a lock through-- not sure what the official name so I will call them locking zippers). This is a no-go for me as I like to lock my laptop during long flights to Africa so I can feel a little more comfortable when I want to put my bag above me to sleep on flights over 12 hours. This has been a reoccurring problem with Eagle Creek as most of the backpacks have some locking zippers but not all of the zippers are locking zippers. I was looking to replace my EC Conor flashpoint backpack that has a locking zipper on the laptop compartment BUT not the main compartment. EC just needs to use locking zippers on all the compartments - I would gladly pay the extra money to get a backpack I can completely lock up. I loved the look of this bag but since I can't lock the laptop compartment, it is being returned.

      Perfect carry on for a senior traveler

      By Granny Ann

      from Milwaukee, WI

      Verified Buyer

      Mainly for travel, nice for a senior person, comfortable on. I originally wanted the Universal Traveler Backpack RFID for the computer feature pocket opens all the way but it wasn't available in black. If this bag opened liked that it would be perfect!
