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.

    Comments about Eagle Creek Black Guide Trek Pack Backpack:

    I had this bag in the 90s that was pretty close to the same. This one is a bit larger and almost the same, minus one zipper pocket that I miss. I would buy this again, and I hope Eagle Creek always keeps a bag of this style.

      Comments about Eagle Creek Black Guide Trek Pack Backpack:

      I'm so happy to have a replacement for my older bag of the same type. The older version had a plastic coating that flaked off; this one doesn't appear to have that, which seems like a good thing because the older one is still in great condition. I love the practicality of this bag. It took me a while to figure out the closure. I know that probably sounds odd but it is not the usual closure. I do really like it though. Sometimes I would pinch my skin (not often) and this design seems like that will not be an issue.

      This is a usable product, but I prefer the original. The outside flap is inconvenient. On the original With 3 zippered compartments, I could immediately reach for the item I needed. The new bag has good material without the original inside sticky plastic plastic.

            I got this bag for an every day purse, after the one I bought from eagle creek 5 years ago blew out a zipper (I carried that bag every single day for over 5 years before the zipper busted - Eagle Creek has seriously quality products).
            This one is smaller, and while the fabric appears durable, it doesn't seem as high quality as my previous bag, and the bag doesn't have as many compartments. The fabric seems more casual/rugged than the old one I have.

              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

              from Baltimore, MD

              Comments about Eagle Creek Black Guide Trek Pack Backpack:

              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.
