A year with many miles


I have had this bag now for more than a year, (since late 2016). It has been all over Latin America, (Guatemala, Chile, and ALL OVER Mexico), India, Spain, Caribbean, and of course all over the US. It has been used as a carry on as well as being checked. It has been on planes, trains, buses and yes, automobiles too. I rarely leave home without it. Because it is so lightweight, it can be packed inside my regular bag to give me an extra bag for things I pick up on during my travels. For it's small size, it carries an amazing amount. I have used this bag for a week long trip (along with a small day pack) and I had MORE than enough space for everything! After so many miles, you may wonder how the bag looks today? Well, it has a fews marks on it from checked airline travel BUT, is in VERY good shape and is packed for my next adventure as we speak. Please Eaglecreek, don't ever stop carrying this bag. I recommend this bag everywhere I go as I am asked about it often.


Mexico and USA

Exactly what I was looking for trips on my motorcycle!!


This bag was exactly what I was looking for! Great travel bag. It packs about a weeks worth of clothes and is about carry on size for many airlines. It has loops that I run staps through to secure it to my motorcycle, it's water resistant, and lockable. When I get to the airport the backpack straps are great! Some chest straps and additional compartments inside would be cool but this does a great job for the price!




Please resize


Would purchase this, and matching 120 L rolling duffle, if it were resized to adhere to standard US carry-on restrictions: 22 x 14 x 9 (45.4 L) - OR EVEN BETTER - to the broader international size of 21.5 x 13.5 x 7.5 (35.7 L). The duffle's stated dimensions and capacity do not match. Please add a shoulder strap option instead of backpack straps.

I use this bag for everything - the gym, rugby practice, weekend trips. It's great. Big plus is that it packs down into the side pocket. My only suggestion would be to add a chest strap for when using it like a backpack.



Almost perfect....


Got this for my son for airline travel. He loved the bag. Everything is perfect except the fabric in the side pockets were very thin and ripped after the first use. It has No Matter What Warranty so I'll be returning for repair or replacement.

Very durable and tough with lots of storage space.



Carry onboard Cargo Hauler Duffel 45L


I like the design that it can be folded into a stowaway bag. I will be using it for the first time in a few days and a little unsure if I can carry it onboard. The dimensions and volume are within the allowable carry-on measurements; but after stuffing it, it looks bulky. Has anyone encountered any problem with this as a carry-on bag fully stuff onboard?

This review was written before any heavy use.... I love how this duffel folds into itself making it a travel accessory. Often on longer trips, it's strategic to depart light and return heavy - thus a duffel like this comes in handy. The shoulder straps allow it to function as a backpack giving it an extra benefit as a 'personal item' carry on to your 2nd bag.





"I'm in love with this bag" was my daughter's comment after years of searching for the perfect carry-on bag. The Eagle Creek Cargo Hauler Duffel 45L has everything you need and nothing extra. It's well constructed, easy to pack into its storage pocket and has good labeling on the outside of the pocket so you won't mistake it for another miscellaneous stuff sack in a box of stuff sacks.




Very light!


Love it! Super light yet it can hold up a lot of clothes. It will not add too much weight to your carry on especially if you will be bringing it to an international flight. I will be using it a lot this coming vacation season.
