Eagle Creek Switchback Max Wheeled Convertible Luggage - 22''is rated5.0out of5by1.
Rated5out of5byfromExcellent carry-on plus backpackI bought this recently based on the reviews. I love this combination carry-on bag plus laptop/backpack. I haven't tried all the features, but I found it to be very useful on a recent 4-day trip. I like the laptop compartment, the ability to zip everything together into one piece of luggage, and the capacity for a short- to medium-length trip. The bag fit easily into overhead space on US carriers. It seems to be sturdy. If I had one complaint it is that the outer pouch of the backpack doesn't have a lot of capacity, but I think this will not be a problem as I use the bag more and become familiar with the possibile distribution of cargo.
