    Comments about Eagle Creek Side Trek:

    I use this to shop and run errands. It's perfect for carrying a checkbook, ebook, appointment book, phone (all of these at once), while also being pretty streamlined and small. I really like the size and organization of the pockets. It's been several years since I got a new Eagle Creek product. It seems to me the zippers are more solid and provide less resistance then in the past. Nice!

        This is a replacement fanny pack for one I purchased about 20 years ago! The zippers finally gave out, but it lasted far longer than I imagined it would and had done lots of traveling both in the US and abroad! I was delighted when I visited your site and found you still carried the exact bag...different color...but same design. No doubt this will last me another 20 years. Thanks for making a superior product!

        Comments about Eagle Creek Side Trek:

        I bought the Side Trek and the Guide Trek at the same time. In the end I decided to use the Guide Trek on my European vacation as it seemed to meet my need for that trip better. The Side Trek earned its spot as my daily commuting bag. I commute on a motorcycle and it fits nicely in my motorcycle's saddlebag, carrying everything I need for a day in the office. I am very happy with the quality of the Side Trek and its pocket layout. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a large-ish fanny pack or over-the-shoulder personal bag.

          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....
