I love this backpack! I use it for my small personal bag on trips by plane, train and automobile. I am able to carry all my important electronics (medium tablet with keyboard, DSLR camera, pocket camera, largish cell phone, mouse, mousepad, extra small drives and accessories), power cords, and Kindle, as well as a flat ID device that all contains all my ID, a tiny make-up bag, a bottle of water, travel size salt shaker, flashlight, tissue pack, keys, sunglasses, a bit of jewelry, and more! In other words, all my valuables. :)

It packs all those things well with the various pockets inside and out. It looks fantastic (I got the brown one with orange trim), and it is not too heavy, even fully loaded like I outlined above. However, it is a bit of a tight fit to include the fattish DSLR along with tablet with keyboard, Kindle, etc. in the main compartment. A teensy bit deeper main compartment would be preferable, mostly to accommodate the DSLR.

The only other issue I have had with this backpack design is not the fault of basic backpack design, but new rules at art museums. Many museums now require one to wear your backpack on your front(!), and I find that to be a completely uncomfortable and awkward way to wear this (as I'm sure it must be for most backpacks). Perhaps having a way to wear it over one shoulder (like the much huger purses some people carry into museums), with perhaps a detachable strap, or a way to hide one strap, would be a plus.

This backpack replaces an old, but loved Swiss army brand backpack of the same size that is worn out after years of use. I prefer the eagle creek weight and overall profile. However, I would pay more for a few more features such as: pen holders for at least three pens, pencils and sharpies, another change sized skippered pocket.
The location of the security pocket and cell phone pocket is wrong. It is located on the center divider in the small divider pocket. I would sew it to the divider between the small and large compartment. This trouble with the present location is that it is difficult to jam a phone, small wallet or passport in a divider that is floppy. Putting it on the divider between the two main backpack mail compartments will give it more stability as well as more security.

    Comments about Eagle Creek Black Travel Bug Mini Backpack RFID:

    Just spent 2 weeks traveling in Italy. I pack very lightly, one soft roller bag as a carry on, and this back pack. It was perfect. During the day it easily & securly held my money, cards & ID. Sunglasses & H2O bottle in side pockets. Enough room to store my light down jacket or sweater if I didn't need it. Highly recommend, so glad I bought it.

      This a wonderful small backpack which is so light and comfortable you hardly know it is on your back. Holds a lot and has compartments for usual things needed while traveling. I am a small woman and especially like its size.

      Neat little backpack

      Comments about Eagle Creek Black Travel Bug Mini Backpack RFID:

      Backpack was ideal for shopping trips in Central Kyoto. I can move in crowded store aisles, streets, and trains without knocking things down or bumping into people. Bottle holder is large enough for most small/medium sized water bottles. Compartments provide convenient and easy access. Straps are comfortable now but long use will reveal its durability.

        Comments about Eagle Creek Black Travel Bug Mini Backpack RFID:

        The bag hangs too low on my back and cannot be made to fit my 5'4" frame. Straps are too long and when carrying by handle, they drag on the ground.

        Comments about Eagle Creek Black Travel Bug Mini Backpack RFID:

        Use as a daily bag. It is replacing one I've had for over ten years -- a smaller version with more easy to access orgaization, and a more solid backing material which made it easier to use, as it stood up on its own. I miss the old size and design, but this will do for now.

                      I took this backpack (which my dad and I fondly nicknamed "the Bug") on a college trip to Bali, Indonesia in May. I had wanted the perfect bag that I could use as a carry-on on the way there but that could also pass as a "personal item" by the airline's standards (in other words, able to fit under the seat in front of me). This bag works perfectly as a personal item for Singapore Airlines and there were no issues - it fit everything I needed in a carry-on but was small enough to hold in my lap.

                      While in Bali, the bag worked great. At one time it fit a 1-liter water bottle and a bunched up sarong plus loads more and didn't even feel heavy on my back. It's well padded and very compact. Went everywhere with me!. I highly recommend the Bug for anyone who wants the perfect daypack or travel bag.
