Comments about Eagle Creek Gear Hauler:

We bought two for a week trip from San Francisco to Seattle then Vancouver and back. Both bags survived the winter rain of Washington and British Columbia fabulously! The black and grey bags were easy to identify and wipe off when stuff got spilled on them. We also love how the zippers and openings are against our back when worn like a backpack. It's piece of mind from pick pockets. Also, the bag is spacious and could hold two weeks worth of clothes, but you probably won't want to over do fill if you want them fit them under the airline seats. Otherwise,when packed reasonably, the cinch straps made the bag compact enough to fit smaller overhead compartments of regional jets and/or under the seats of ferries. I trust all my travels with Eagle Creek.

    Wow! This bag was perfect for my three week trip in Tanzania. I was able to easily fit everything I needed. One of my favorite things about this bag is how easy it was to access everything I packed. I did not have to dig around to find what I was looking for. It is well-made, comfortable, and looks great.

      Comments about Eagle Creek Gear Hauler:

      We used these bags during a trip to South Africa and Botswana, which involved small plane flights with luggage restrictions - no wheels, frames, or hard sides. We were able to carry everything we needed for two weeks in Africa in one of these bags, with occasional laundry service. They stuff under the cabin of small planes quite well; I carried my camera etc. in my small backpack on board, and used this for everything else.

        So I haven't used this bag yet for its original purpose. But I have used it for smaller trips and it works great. I originally bought this bag to hold all my belongings for a two week trip to Thailand. I tend to pack light no matter how long the trip is so this is a perfect carry on size bag that I can fit everything I need into it. I bought the solid black one and it is very sleek looking. Great bag for a reasonable price.

        I went to Japan for 8 days. Combined this bag with the Spectre bag set and was able to pack 10 days worth of clothes. Managed to place toiletries shoes. Sweaters and neck pillow with room to spare.

        I liked the ability to open the back from three sides.I liked the multiple straps and the backpack straps.

        Although I did loved the backpack feature there is no weist strap. Also my back could not get any ventilation and I sweated a lot with this bag on.The tote option was okay BH it it did hurt a bit. Did I mention the weist strap.

        Traveled to Europe for 3 weeks

        Comments about Eagle Creek Gear Hauler:

        I generally travel for long and hard trips, often. Leaving to Patagonia and Antarctica in couple of weeks for a month. I am also a big fan of Eagle Creek owning lots of their luggage and backpacks.

        I just got back from a 3 week motorcycle trip in Europe and took the Gear Hauler which I just bought. I stayed in 10 hotels along the trip -- packing and unpacking almost nightly due to the type of trip.

        I decided to get the Gear Hauler because I wanted a higher capacity bag which would fit on the plane along with my larger checked bag. Here is a quick synopsis of my experience:

        Pro:

        - The bag really does hold lots of stuff. The design is unique in that it expands much larger than expected.
        - I like that the bottom is water resistant (proof?). Would be nice if it had a rain cover too.
        - The material seems fine. I won't know until I use it more but good enough. I would like to learn more about the fabric.
        - Lightweight bag compared with its size and capacity.
        - Integrated shoulder straps is great idea. And the fact that they tuck away is great although not unique -- still executed well.

        Cons:

        - Biggest issue was that the backpack setup really hurt my back when traveling in airports and to/from hotels. I had my bag really loaded which is great. It was heavy. So when using as a backpack, it just was not comfortable. My backed really hurt because their is no padding on top. Possibly if I had it less full, it may have been better.
        - After the first trip -- a few seems did split. Small, but still the sewing did unravel in one area. Thats disappointing.
        - The zippers are so-so. I wish they used YKK zippers. Instead, the chosen zippers are probably cheaper and don't feel as solid. Often hard to pull.
        - The area that stores the laptop/iPad is real small. Maybe just increasing the size a bit.

        So on my next trip, I really had to consider if I will bring this bag as carry-on or a traditional backpack with 40L capacity and a better backpack setup with less pain. Tough decision since the Gear Hauler holds 45+ L which I'm sure that I will use.

        Comments about Eagle Creek Gear Hauler:

        With many backpacks, the outside seems always much greater than the inside... which is not the case here. Because what you see is what you get: a roomy backpack that can be squeezed in as a carry-on on most major commercial airlines.
        I have rarely so little wasted space in the design of a backpack, wow !

        Don't be appalled by the backpack straps coming from the front (i was worried about that aspect and carried the bag on my back for a whole afternoon and never felt it to be awkward); those straps are really well designed!

        Though i didn't get the chance to travel with it, i "tested" it with 4-5 days worth of clothes (including hiking boots), some toiletries and gizmos and my fair share of techno gear and I was amazed to see that I would be able to squeeze in some souvenirs when I travel with it.

          Travelled from the US to Sri Lanka for a two week stay and only used this backpack as a carryon to carry all my items. It was easy to tote, handle or backpack straps, it is waterproof which was very handy during our trip, it wipes clean, is lightweight and has plenty of pockets and space to stay organized. I loved it!

                I got this for one-bag travel because of its size and the fact that the two "top" handles can be used as trolley straps. Unfortunately if the bag is completely full, it's hard to put it on the trolley using those straps.

                I wish that instead of having a computer sleeve integrated into the bag, there was a removable computer backpack.
