Excellent Backpack with Minor Issues

4

I just used the men's version of this backpack (can't find it on the EC website) on a 2 week trip to New Zealand and was very pleased with it. Even stuffed to the brim it is very comfortable to carry with the nicely padded shoulder straps, chest strap and hip belt. You can fit a great deal into the two large interior pockets so long as you are not trying to pack a large item such as a square box since each interior pocket only has so much depth. The underneath pocket is a nice feature for stowing items such as shoes, a travel pillow or a dopp kit although it does use up space in one of the interior pockets. The laptop space is very nicely designed, as are the locking zippers and grommets. One downside is that unlike many travel backpacks there is no storage place to tuck away the shoulder and hip belts out of sight, and they do occasionally get caught on other items in the overhead bins. This could have been cured by giving the hidden rain cover the same capability as on the larger model of this backpack to completely cover it and add a carry handle, but the 40L doesn't have that capability. Another is that the outside front pockets are very small and narrow with very little room for anything other than flash drives, pens and other small items. The middle large outside pocket is a great place to stash a larger item (I used it for my Bose headphone case), but a better design may have been to add a large outside flap like other travel backpacks that would give you more room to store papers, small electronic items, etc. Overall, however, after looking at the many possibilities, none of those were major concerns, I chose this pack and was very happy I did.

I love this bag and want more

I just received my 40LW in Concord. WHAT a back pack.! I love, love, love it. I am going to Africa and I am only allowed 44 lbs., I am almost 70 years young, and I just keep going no matter what. I can easily carry this back pack and I love the way it opens like a regular suitcase. I bought expensive luggage two years ago with easy turn wheels. Well, it's going out for yard sale. I'm so happy I found Eagle Creek. I'm getting the matching color rolling duffel next. You cannot go wrong with this company for all of your travel needs. Thank You Eagle Creek. One less thing I have to worry about when going on adventurous or lazy vacations. And oh so light weight, lots of room for bringing home all those t-shirts we really don't need but just have to have.

Stitching Undone

1

I used this for the first this weekend, and I am disappointed. The stitching on the velcro found on the bottom of the backpack came undone while I was packing for the first time. This backpack was the only thing I asked to receive for my birthday, and now I wish I asked for something else. For the price my husband paid, I expected better quality.

Getting ready for the summer tour of Greece and Copenhagen, this fits perfectly and test packing proves I'll have room for everything plus space for souvenirs!

Weekend Travel Backpack

4

I use this travel backpack for weekend trips. I was able to pack for 3 days in Vegas. I fitted several outfits, pjs and three heels plus all my toiletries. I'm a petite women and it was easy for me to carry everything. It's great having the laptop compartment in the back but the shoe compartment takes a lot of room if you place three heels in it. Overall, would recommend to friends and family.

I would buy this product again if mine became lost or stolen

I like it because it eliminates wheeling a traditional carry-on suitcase over rough, wet or snow covered streets, climbing steps, (both indoor and outdoor) etc. It is also very light weight, having about a five pound advantage over soft side wheeled models which will save you airline overweight fees. The built-in rain fly and storage pockets are great! Perfect for traveling in the US, Europe or more developed South American countries (Chile, Argentina, Uruguay), but would be cautious in places prone to petty theft, as people will slice into a pack with a razor to remove items, even while you wear it.

Excellent Carry-On Sized Travel Backpack

5

I love my Global Companion 40L W backpack! I just tested it out on a 3-day trip and it was wonderful. I bought this as a replacement for a carry-on suitcase because it made it easier to walk faster through airports and climb stairs. I compared this brand to some competing products and felt this one had a better fit and better design. I am 5' 3" with a short torso and this bag fits me fine. It adjusts in so many ways, has very good padding, and the load lifter straps are a nice touch. I was able to haul it through large international airports without difficulty. It fits quite a bit of stuff, plenty for a three day trip. The two lockable zippers are nice and work well with Eagle Creek's TSA approved locks. I like that you can access the electronics pocket in the back without opening the whole bag. The whole bag opens like a suitcase. It works well to use packing cubes. The compression straps help you reduce the size of the pack and keep the weight closer to your body. I used the shoe pocket as a place to stuff my packable daypack. The top pocket holds sunglasses well. The side pocket on your waist is very handy. I was able to fit a narrow 1L water bottle in the water bottle pocket and had no trouble with the compression strap going around it. Best of all, the bag qualifies as a carry-on (check with your airline). It fits in the overhead of a CRJ200 regional jet without smashing it down. The only thing I'd like to see changed on this bag is for a way to cover up the straps in case you want to check the bag. The rain fly does not work well for this purpose because in order to keep that secure, you have to cover up the top carry handle and then there is no way to pick up the bag by a handle. I would highly recommend this backpack to anyone who doesn't want to drag around a suitcase and wants to speed through airports by not checking a bag. Happy customer here!
