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.

    Got this to help with commuting between two offices and for taking phone, calculator, computer pad, glasses etc. to field (outdoor environmental) and it has worked admirably, not too big, yet adequate capacity, not too many whistles and bells would never use.

    old style/color is better, all black

    By Customer

    from Baltimore, MD

    Comments about Eagle Creek Guide Trek:

    All black is better. Now lining has a light color which doesn't blend in and could get dirty looking.

    I was going to buy the same bag again after using one for many years. I am worried that the new bag with not be the same quality. The quality with so many things is not as good as it was.

      I've been looking for a bag that's compact but large enough to accommodate all my stuff. This is perfect, and it has lots of compartments so I know right where to find everything.

      Comments about Eagle Creek Guide Trek:

      The shoulder bag would be fine if the outer flap covered the inner contents. With the inner contents exposed thru the open mesh, i want the outer flap to fit tighter & not expose my 'stuff'. im in nyc, going into crowds & the Subway; i also travel thru cities around the world. i don't want anyone seeing what i'm carrying with me.
      And it looks tacky to have your shoulder bag half "opened".

        Comments about Eagle Creek Guide Trek:

        I carried the previous model for years and it was showing wear. This new version is clearly a cheaper, probably "a money-saver" from the old model. Everything about this bag is a poor. I wouldn't recommend to anyone.

          Comments about Eagle Creek Guide Trek:

          I originally bought this purse 14 years ago for a trip to Europe but found it so practical and easy for everyday use, I continued to use it until it finally just wore out....but it took at least 10 years to do so. I was delighted to find that Eagle Creek still made this bag as I prepared for another lengthy trip but have already just adopted it as my everyday purse. It's so light and has plenty of room for wallet, glasses, etc. The best!

          Comments about Eagle Creek Guide Trek:

          This looks like it could be a replacement for the ever-popular "Wanderer", but it falls far short of that! It's much smaller, doesn't have as many pockets, and the carry loop is thin and unreliable.

          It looks like people are asking Eagle Creek to bring back the "Wanderer"! I guarantee this will sell quickly! I've had mine for over 25 years, and will carry it until Eagle Creek brings this style back!

          I am sending back the "Guide Trek"! It's just too small!

              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."
