This is a good bag, but I bought it as a replacement for an earlier version which had some additional useful features which had been dropped from the new design: the document side-pocket used to be an external pouch; now a bulky wallet or glasses case causes it to bulge inwards, reducing space in the main compartment; the previous version had a 2 inch expansion through unzipping a bellows; and the previous top handles directly lifted the sides, whereas the load is now carried across the zips.

In short still good, but not quite as good as it was.

I was hoping this would be the solution to my search for a professional-looking bag for meetings that is comfortable for carrying on long walks through airports. Instead, this is "almost" good for both uses, but misses the mark.

This is a bag with an identity crisis - it's not sure if it wants to be a backpack or a briefcase, and instead of excelling at both it fails at both.

The laptop and tablet compartments only work in the vertical orientation and are difficult to access when the bag is carried like a briefcase.

The logo is huge - not a professional look for business uses.

The bag is lightweight - which is a great help for business travel and long walks to airport gates.

The shoulder straps have chest buckles, which are unnecessary and dangerous for this product. Chest straps may make sense for long wilderness hikes, but they make you more vulnerable when you are walking through mean city streets and subways.

The shoulder strap is comfortable but the attachment points make the bag sag outwards away from the body of the user, making it more cumbersome.

Frankly, I have a list of a dozen improvements Eagle Creek should make to this bag. My recommendation is to wait until the next update.

I had trouble finding a convertible laptop bag and backpack that would hold a large binder and large laptop (15+ inch gaming laptop). So far it works great!

Comments about Eagle Creek Straight Up Business Brief RFID:

This product is the best out there. High quality materials. My previous bag similar to this had so many worthless pockets, this has just the right amount. They have have thought about ease of access to get to the items that you may need quickly especially when traveling. I cannot say enough good things about this bag!

Comments about Eagle Creek Straight Up Business Brief RFID:

This backpack is great. I use it for work but have also used it for short weekend trips since it doubles as a travel bag. The side handles are perfect for that. Really awesome bag, definitely recommend it!

    Comments about Eagle Creek Straight Up Business Brief RFID:

    An awesome feature that needs to be talked is that this bag is TSA-approved. Perfect for the laptop-carrying jetsetter. I no longer have to laboriously pull my 17-inch macbook out of my backpack and then stuff it back in after it's been put through the security scanner. Instead, I just unzip the main compartment so the bag spreads in half...voila...easy scan process.

    The second part I love is that it has a slip panel so I can easily stack it on my Eagle Creek AWD-rolling carry-on for extra mobility. I'm zipping through airport terminals and airplane aisles.

    I probably do more with the bag than others as I also do day hikes and camping trips as well. It can stuff a lot of stuff in it when you need to or you can keep it really light. The moisture wicking straps keep me from sweating a ton.

    Here are my knocks:

    - The black color backpack is actually more like midnight blue.
    - The fabric can pick up white scuff marks really easily.

    Comments about Eagle Creek Straight Up Business Brief RFID:

    I was looking for a professional looking replacement for my Ogio Newt 15 backpack after the zipper failed. When I came across the Business Brief I thought that I had found the perfect match!

    After the bag arrived I started checking out all of the features. The first thing I noticed was how cheap the material looked and felt. Once I began to transfer everything to the new bag I quickly realized the short comings of this bag.

    Only one of the front compartments had organized bockets for your wallet, phone, two pens and a mesh zipper pocket. The rest were just vast cavernous pouches to throw stuff into only to be jumbled up, scattered and eventually dumped as you transition from brief to backpack. Very poor design makes for an extremely clumsy experience.

      Comments about Eagle Creek Straight Up Business Brief RFID:

      I have never had such a well thought out pack. I use it to carry my Mac Book Air and iPad Air and they fit perfect. I thought it was going to be little small,as my last pack (another company) was about the same size. I put everything and more into the pack and more and still have room left over. The only suggestions I would make would to put a small pocket on the front, for a phone, and a sunglass carrier on top. I would I've this pack an 8.

        Comments about Eagle Creek Straight Up Business Brief RFID:

        Now on my second bag. First bag was near-perfect as a travel briefcase - good shoulder straps and capacious, more professional-looking than a rucksack. After several years and many, many, openings the zip on the side pouch wore through the fabric. Second bag the newer design - still good, but the side pocket is no longer an external pouch and so even a thick wallet will restrict space in main pocket and strain the zip.

          Comments about Eagle Creek Straight Up Business Brief RFID:

          I needed a better bag for my business commute, and this one is it! What I like about this bag is the three ways of carrying it - as a backpack, messenger bag and briefcase. I tend to use it as a backpack most often, as I have a fairly good walk to/from the office, but also wanted the other options as well. For its size, it is amazing how much fits, and there are a number of different areas within the bag to put things in. The areas for the laptop (I use a 15.6" which fits great) and tablet do a great job of protection. Well-designed and well-constructed - my favorite bag!
