    Bag is for daily use. Wanted another bag that would convert to 'fanny pack' when traveling. My last bag lasted years and I look forward to this one lasting as long.

        Comments about Eagle Creek Side Trek:

        I was beyond thrilled when I learned that Eagle Creek was re-releasing the old Sidekick model, which has been my go-to-bag for years. Just received the new bag. It is still pretty great, but why a bunch of things that were not broken had to be fixed is a bit beyond me.

        THINGS THAT ARE THE SAME THAT ARE GREAT: Convertibility, weight, durability, construction, color, size, capacity.

        THINGS THAT GOT BETTER:
        Strap width, Access to fanny-pack straps. (Kind of small potatoes actually... what was great before didn't need that much improvement.

        LATERAL CHANGES:
        Color of interior, Slight styling changes, Logo now way more prominent (I painted over mine with a sharpee), zipper toggles, arrangement of pockets.

        THINGS THAT GOT SADLY AND FAIRLY SIGNIFICANTLY WORSE:
        Yawning open non-zipperable pocket in the front. What use is that? It seems to have been traded in for the old zip-sleeve in the back, that was supremely useful. Bad trade. Old full-hand-width handle has been replaced by an anemic loop. How disappointing. Can no longer hang on a door knob or be grabbed easily on the way out the door. Fanny pack arrangement feels like secure... not sure that is true though. Sad to miss the closeable interior pockets inside the "desk accessory" compartment.

        All in all, still a great bag, but I'm still confused about why this was discontinued for three years and why the most welcome return is a step down....

          Thirteen years ago a co-worker had one of these bags and I bought one at that time...I have had it all this time, used it and now have bought a black one which will match pretty much anything I wear...I wear it with casual clothes and even more dressy attire. It is so easy to wear and so light weight. I love it!

            The perfect bag for my everyday. Goes from daily purse to waist pack to shoulder bag easily. It's nice to be able to walk with my bag on my shoulder then strap it to my waist for added security when needed. Stylish enough to wear into evening and sturdy enough to last for years. Plenty of pockets to organize essentials. This is my second Eagle Creek waist pack/bag. The first one lasted over ten years with everyday use. Glad to find one with a little more room and more versatility. Thanks Eagle Creek.

              I use this for travel, especially foreign travel. I wear it across the front of my body for safety. Once I used the belt strap for added security. I love the convenience of this bag. I wish it had a padded shoulder strap like my old version of this bag has.

              I love this bag! I own its predecessor and used it every day until one of the zippers broke--its only weakness. Used it for travel as a fanny pack too. So I bought this one to use until I can get the old one repaired. I only gave this one 4 stars (would have given it 4 1/2 if I could) because the pocket arrangement isn't as good and the strap is too long--both very minor inconviences. Bought the green one this time for a color change and like the color.

              Comments about Eagle Creek Side Trek:

              My old Eagle Creek waist pack finally gave out after about twenty years. This somewhat smaller version is the best replacement I could find. The pockets and sleeves are versatile and easy to reach.

              I've only got one gripe. The clasp is on the left side. I'm right-handed, and I find it difficult to fasten the strap. What works is to pull the pack around to my right hip, fasten it, then slide it back to my left hip. Awkward - especially with a phone case on my right hip.

              Switch the phone and the waist pack, you say? But then I can't fasten my seatbelt, and the phone becomes hard to reach. No, no. What we need here is a right-sided clasp. Just like the clasp on my dear old waist pack - which was perfect, but is now deceased. May it rest in peace.

              Other than that, I'm a happy customer.
