the video says it all. in fact I own 3 of them. just in case if the company should de-side to disco them. I must have one. I use mine for everyday use. I take it everywhere. the 2 things that I found that gave me a hard time was the pen storage. being to short. the pen falls out a lot and I lose lots of pens. the other is the length of the strap. being to short. I stand at 6-2. even fully loose its like close to my arm pit. I hope they added a extra 12 inches then the first one. you can always make it smaller to fit but you cant always make it longer. this bag I have owned for over 16 years. yes I need a new one. they did make some changes from the original. I found them to be great ones. you will not be sorry. specially with the life time guarantee and great customer service. my zippers broke 2 times. well worth the money. well can I be compensated for writing this review. I really do own 3. I also gave one away as a gift. really people. this is all true. if you get a chance to see one in person. its worth checking out. also i have traveled to the Philippines. this came in very handy. along with other bags from eagle creek.

I have had two of the old style bags, I'd use them in place of a larger carry on...they were great! The strap no longer is padded; the new strap gets in the way. The bag seems smaller...I used to pack a jacket, guide books, a water bottle,earphones and something to eat in the old guide bag. No longer. I am sure that my old bags had side pockets. This is more like a discount outfitters bag than the great stuff I am used to from Eagle Creek. Please Eagle Creek, bring back the old bag! It was a true winner...this one just doesn't measure up.

      Comments about Eagle Creek Guide Trek:

      I bought Guide Trek to use on a European vacation. My wife at first "dissed" the idea of a "man purse" for me, but at the end of the trip she agreed it was a very good purchase for the trip . . . one of the most useful items I had bought. It was large enough to hold guide books, camera, water bottle, cell phone, airplane tickets, passports, snacks and anything else we needed for the day's tour, but was also small enough and flat enough to not be in the way . . . not bulky. It was easy to slip on or off my shoulder and comfortable all day long. I really liked the layout and the degrees of security it provided for important documents and items.

      It has definitely earned a place in my travel gear. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a small satchel aka "murse."

        Comments about Eagle Creek Guide Trek:

        the old one, at least 20 years old, is the best and only purse during all that time, as the webbing wore out on the front, nothing else, I looked for years for a purse like it without finding any!! So happy you are making this purse again. It is strong useful, good looking, and lasts a long time, obviously, well designed and not too big. thank you for bring it back......

          I have had this same bag since at least 1994. Loaned mine to a friend for a int'l trip and she lost it. Have been searching for a replacement for a year -and now the original design is back. Alleluia. Is the perfect shape, size and compartments. This is my everyday, go every where bag, including more than 50 flights a year.

            I had two friends I lived with years ago who both had one of these bags. They still have them! They have extended life spans :P 15 years later. I wanted one for a long time and finally got one, I love it as I knew I would. Goes great with my Eagle Creek wallet.

                  Comments about Eagle Creek Guide Trek:

                  Thanks for bringing this bag back! I loved my old one but the clasp broke and it was just getting worn out. I also used it as a CCW bag and I loved it.
                  There are Pros and Cons with the new bag.
                  Pros: you made it available again. The compartments are better organized for usefulness. The new clasp is a better design than the old one and my guess is it will outlast the old one.

                  Cons: what's with the whimpy grab loop? The old one had a strap three times the width of the new one. I'd like to see that strap even larger with a wrapped grip on it.
                  The old shoulder strap had a shoulder pad on it that was much more comfortable than the new one. The flap on the new one covers all the main compartments. I prefer the double zippered large pocket of the old one that was not covered by the flap and located on the top of the bag. I also miss the tool loop that was on the thin side of the bag.

                  I am glad you brought the bag back but I'd like to see some of the old features again.
                  All things considered, it's the best bag for the money I have found and would definitely recommend it. For anyone interested, an iPad will fit nicely in the large pocket.
