    Comments about Eagle Creek Switchback 26:

    I bought my first Switchback bag before my husband and I got married - I remember using it on our honeymoon in 1996. We went to Greece, and our hotel room was on the third floor, naturally with no elevator. I pulled out the backpack straps, put the Switchback on my back and walked up the stairs comfortably. We still use that bag - in fact, we often argue about who gets to use it for an upcoming trip. We both love the fact that a detachable daypack is a part of the bag - one less bag to carry and check at the airport, and really handy for day hikes at our destination. So I decided to purchase a second Switchback. I called and spoke to Jessica in Customer Service; I needed the bag for an upcoming trip in 11 days, and couldn't wait the regular three weeks for it to get to me. She asked for my last name and said she would watch for my order and put a rush it. I got the Switchback two days later! I can now pack it and be ready for my trip without any last minute stress of wondering if the bag will arrive in time. Thanks, Jessica!
