Comments about Eagle Creek Convertabrief Backpack and Briefcase:

This is probably the best bag I have found for international travel. Nothing else is close.

I travel extensively from Asia, and researched for a few months to find the best bag. I wanted a convertible, as a backpack is preferred when I'm trekking through airports. My old briefcase bag would kill my shoulder after a while, as I lug too much stuff. But I still wanted to switch to a briefcase type so I look professional when meeting with customers, especially in old school Japan. I didn't want my bag to look like some glorified hiker pack.

It also needed it to "stand" upright, as I would likely set it next to my chair in meetings, likely pulling a critical folder, notepad, or laptop out. No flaps either, like on a messenger bag.

I also needed it to hold a lot of stuff. Headphones and a compressed neck pillow for the overseas flights. Sunglasses and regular glasses. Multiple pockets for chargers, passport, plug adapters, catalogs and a tablet. And it needed to hold my 15 inch laptop. (I hate the tiny travel laptops.) It also needed to take abuse and still look nice.

I also wanted something that wasn't plain black. Too many bags in just that color. But didn't want a neon blue or something off kilter either.

Yes, I'm a picky basterd. I had a lot of wants. Sue me.

And the Convertabrief seriously took the cake. Looks great. It has more than enough pockets. Held all my folders. I liked how there were two sleeves for folders in two different compartments. More than enough room for my laptop. Plenty of space for cords, plug adapters, and chargers. I had a charging brick, and it fit perfectly in the slot provided. The little cord winder is a stroke of genius. The pocket for the cell phone is a tad small, but who cares. I stick my business cards in there.

There are minor quips, such as a desire for a hard pocket to store glasses. But who cares. This is an excellent investment for my line of work. Great job guys.

Comments about Eagle Creek Convertabrief Backpack and Briefcase:

I bought this for the trip I'm on. Carried it as a backpack absolutely stuffed (and actually too heavy for me), no signs of seams splitting. Zippers work perfectly. There are the right number, size and shape of pockets, not too many, not too few. Things do not get lost in this bag. I packed: Rainjacket folded down into EC Medium size air compression sac, MacBook Air in protective case; iPad in protective case; peripherals; Canon 6D camera, 2 lenses (heavy); camera peripherals; extra stuff men don't bring, jewelry, etc.; contact lenses for 3 months; 3 pairs of glasses in cases (sunglass case got squished though, not sure why); 12 power bars; notebook; and other stuff I can't remember at this moment. The point is, this bag was STUFFED, no room left at all. Was uncomfortable to carry of course, but it worked better than other bags including rolling bags which are lethal when they tip over and fall down escalator, which happened to me last trip. I was entirely organized and could remember where I put everything, which on its own is extraordinary. I'm constantly searching for stuff in other bags. The only thing I want is a lumbar strap and to need less stuff.

      Comments about Eagle Creek Convertabrief Backpack and Briefcase:

      About to give up after browsing what seemed like a thousand bags I finally came to the Eagle Creek site and found this perfect bag. It is large enough for big laptop, rain-jacket, shaving kit, change of clothes, windbreaker, and all the random stuff I carry like battery bank, folding headset, tablet, glasses, phone chargers....I don't have to leave anything behind. The bag is really lightweight but seems well constructed, and even when slightly overstuffed fits under the seat of a 737 with room for a least one foot. Comfortable shoulder strap, fits over pull-handle of roll-aboard. I've carried it on 4 flights now, and every day at work for a week and it just gets better and better. I really can't think of anything that needs to be different about this bag - for me it is just perfect.

      Very robust brief case. like the fact that it converts to a backpack if needed. Has all the right holders and pockets from documents to a nice TSA friendly computer sleeve. Really nice and would buy again

          Love the design of this pack but wish they would make a featherweight version without padding and with ultralight fabric.

          I absolutely love this product. I carry laptop, portable monitor, and IPAD. I also carry electronic peripherals which conveniently store in the unit. I wanted shoulder strap, but also wanted the option of using as back pack. This product is extremely well made and very well thought out. It has a variety of options for storing everything from sun glasses, to car keys, to computers. I would definitely recommend this product.

          Best briefcase in 30 years of carrying briefcases!

          By Robert W.

          from Coral Springs, Florida

          Verified Reviewer

          Comments about Eagle Creek Convertabrief Backpack and Briefcase:

          This is absolutely the best design I've encountered in 30 years of carrying briefcases. This design holds all of my equipment, which varies daily between carrying one or TWO laptop computers (Mac and Windows), external hard drives, cables, a small camera, paperwork, an Eagle Creek RFID Travel Zip Organizer (as my wallet), and other small equipment and convenience items. My last briefcase was a large, wheeled unit of a much larger and bulkier design, carrying the same volume of equipment. I highly recommend this item.
