Love this bag for carry on trips. Very light weight and easy to lift into overhead bins. I am short, elderly, and have a neck injury, so lightweight is a MUST. The 20" size works to carry on in international flights.

Front pocket is deep enough for a 15" laptop in its separate padded case.

I can pack for up to 10 days in it with no trouble; using Specter packing cubes and Specter compression cubes helps. Soft sided so I can always stuff in just one more thing.

Easily collapses into stuff sack for storage.

The backpack straps are not the most practical thing. Without a waist belt, a fully loaded bag is too heavy to carry backpack style. But the straps are good for a short trip up a flight of stairs, since I can't hand-carry a fully loaded bag.

I'd buy it again because it's so lightweight and stores so easily.

I really liked the looks of this bag and the idea of the detachable wheels. Hubby and I each bought one for travel. The major drawback was that there was no waist belt/cinch which caused discomfort to our back. Also, can't quite come to terms with the detachable frame..good idea IF you want to use it for a rolling luggage and then use the pack at a different time as just a back pack. No advantage if you try to combine the two as you would be carrying the frame, etc. Sorry, did not work for me. Add the waist belt and would make a world of difference to this senior citizen! Had to return both bags.

Comments about Eagle Creek Black EC Lync™ System International Carry-On Suitcase:

I highly recommend this convertible backpack suitcase! In researching and planning for my first trip ever abroad my aim was to find an extremely lightweight yet durable luggage that could be wheeled but also worn as. backpack. I live in a teeny tiny apartment so the fact that it could be detached from the frame and the frame collapses and it all stuffs into its own stuff sack really appealed to me for minimal storage when not in use. I also really like the idea that while using it it could be worn as a backpack for going up narrow cobblestone streets. I could also throw it on my back in case I had to dart from one plane to the other instead of dragging it behind me through an airport.
Not knowing what to expect I did a lot of research about long-haul flights international flights and most recommendations were to take carry-on only. I was going for a two-week trip but needed to keep the luggage very small because international size limits are often more restrictive then US domestic. This fantastic luggage is 20 inches even so in some overhead bins on airlines it still came close to not fitting but the beauty of this item is without removing the frame the bottom wheels can be pulled back allowing it to fit in even the smallest overhead bins and the fact that with the exception of the frame the bag itself is soft and allows for some squish ability. I had absolutely no trouble with taking this as my primary carry-on.
I chose The flame orange which I love. it's bright fun color makes it a highly visible and easy to pick out among other people's luggage.
The internal compression straps are really well done and really allow for maximum use of the internal organization space.
It is extremely durable it survived a tumble down an escalator with no signs of wear or damage very good quality.
The only negative is I felt the Velcro on the backpack straps was not quite strong enough for a heavy load and waist strap for when worn as a backpack would be beneficial.

Comments about Eagle Creek Black EC Lync™ System International Carry-On Suitcase:

Used as backpack to maneuver checked back to/from the airport check-in, then as rolled bag/backpack as needed. Needed to have backpack straps at the ready so couldn't remove them fully at any point so hanging lengths on straps got caught in the wheels at one point and got damaged. Very light weight in all.

    Comments about Eagle Creek Black EC Lync™ System International Carry-On Suitcase:

    Used it to give me hands-free convenience while also using checked luggage piece. The back-pack straps' cross-chest connectors dragged and were damage first time used because they fell out of the zip compartment, where I stowed them because I didn't fully unhook all back-pack straps. The need to go from back pack to rolled mode is instantaneous, it's not practical to unhook everything for protected stow. However, this backpack was a god-send for going from back-pack to rolled luggage, so I can live with the small deficiencies.

        The backpack part came in very handy in the Paris Metro. All of Paris in general.

            Bought this so I can do carry on only and international family trip. Along with Eagle Creek's compression bags and Pack It system I can carry it all in here. From plane, boat and train this bag fits in the overhead carry on area, the frame allows the bag to stand up without it tipping over, While walking I wheeled it over cobblestones and it never skipped a beat. Smart looking and has a zipped pouch on the back so that when wheeled I unhook the bottom backpack straps and tuck them in so they don't get dragged around. Excellent design.

              After 6 weeks of intense travel (by bus, train, plane, cabs) in developing countries, this bag has withstood all the assaults of bad roads, cobblestone streets, subway stairs, etc. It is lightweight, fits perfectly in overhead compartments of trains and planes, well-constructed with good quality fabric and zippers. So far absolutely no complaints!

                Having just returned from a two week trip to SE Asia, I can only say these bags are excellent. We only took carry on luggage so they fit the bill. Both my husband and had one and found them to be wonderful, light, easy to manage, and worked beautifully with the Eagle Creek packing cubes. I took off the wheels to use it as a backpack for getting the laundry done (subway and walking). Worked great. I love this bag and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to travel light or have an excellent carry on for travel.
