              Comments about Eagle Creek Switchback 22:

              After 20 years of using an Eagle Creek backpack that I loved (an older version of the Digi Hauler), I thought I would really enjoy the Switchback since the wheels add yet another option for carrying it. But while I like the main bag, the detachable daypack is proving to be more trouble than its worth. When attached to the front of the main bag or when put on the handles on top of the main bag, the whole thing topples over. After two trips with the Switchback, I am finding the bag is not as versatile as I'd hoped it would be.

              My recommendation for this bag comes with reservations.

                  Comments about Eagle Creek Switchback 22:

                  I spend a lot of time traveling by car and plane and I was looking for a product that would meet some very specific needs.

                  1. It had to integrate a carry on and a removable daypack
                  2. The daypack had to carry a laptop and tablet
                  3. It had to be durable and laden with extra features.

                  The Switchback 22 meets all these needs and more. I researched the bag online and was very impressed. But when I saw it, handled it, and packed it for the first time, I was simply blown away. This is the perfect bag for me. It's great for business travelers who are constantly in and out of planes, cars, and hotels. I love the fact that I can leave the main bag in the hotel room while I grab the daypack and take it to a meeting downstairs. I put the removable back straps on the daypack and I just roll the main bag. The wheels are tough, but smooth. There are multiple carry options, some I don't use. The daypack takes some effort to zip on to the main bag, but it easier if the main bag is full. Most of the time I just carry the daypack on my back because it is very comfortable and light. The Switchback is great for those who love practical business travel gear--guys and gals who are "shoe leather" types that favor functionality and reliability. The Switchback is spacious, lightweight, and durable and I highly recommend it.

                  Comments about Eagle Creek Switchback 22:

                  This product is very nice and I love the combo of daypack/carry-on. It's very little weight and rest very comfortably on my back, both the day and combo pack, feeling sturdy at all times. I currently have had only excellent experience with this bag, but am worried about the use of Velcro for sustaining the shoulder straps for both packs. You receive one par of straps that are interchangeable between both packs fasten with Velcro at the top. I am not feeling to confident that after a few trips and a few years of use that the Velcro will age well. I really hope I'm wrong. You will also be missing a large mesh pocket that you seem to find in most luggages.

                  As you can see in the video the larger luggage is never opened, yes there is a picture so maybe I should have looked closer, nor do they show you how the straps are tethered from bag to bag leaving me feel they left out some very important information for the video.

                  Overall I really do enjoy this bag and would recommend it to anyone traveling and wanting a combo daypack/carry-on but can only give it 8 ½ out of 10 because of the few cons below.

                  Pros:
                  - Lightweight
                  - Comfortable while carrying (both packs)
                  - Lots of room for goods
                  - Product seems very sturdy and of good quality (except for the use of Velcro)
                  - You don't have to check it in while traveling
                  - Very stylish and does look more like a large backpack then luggage

                  Cons:
                  - Use of Velcro (won't know for a few year for sure)
                  - No mesh pocket inside large bag
                  - Daypack side pockets aren't meshed so any water bottle will fall out.
