Comments about Eagle Creek Digi Hauler Daypack:
I travel by air and rental car for work three days a week, and had been using a small duffle bag, and either a briefcase or small backpack. I wanted to combine the two luggage pieces into one carry-on backpack, so I only had one bag to keep track of.
I did a fair amount of research and picked out another pack more oriented towards dayhiking. Santa Claus knew better though, and got me the Digihauler Daypack for Christmas. I have to say I'm very pleased with it, probably more than I would have been with the pack I had picked out.
I can easily carry three changes of casual clothes(rolled up to take minimum space), a laptop and cords, toiletries, a book, and have room left over if I need something extra along. The front opens fully, for easy loading and there are no dividers to compromise the space available. The zippered laptop pocket is large,and will hold a laptop far larger than mine.
The pack is light, soft sided, and easily fits into an overhead compartment. But even better, as far as I'm concerned, it easily fits under the seat in front of me on the airplane, at least for window and center seats. I'm paranoid about leaving my bag on the plane, and I really like having my bag where I can see it, and get stuff out of it.
The pack is fairly comfortable to carry, if you take the time to adjust the shoulder straps and sternum straps appropriately. I'd happily walk a mile with it fully loaded (about 20 pounds) , less happily for 5 miles, and probably pretty unhappily up Mount Whitney. For its intended use, though, I think its fine. My only real complaint is that the waist belt could be wider. Its pretty skinny.
I've used the pack for about 5 weeks now, and compared to what I see others struggling with, I'm well pleased with my carry-on system. Those stiff, wheeled carry-on bags weigh a ton, and don't have near as much usable space.
