    The Eagle Creek 22 in. Flip Switch Wheeled Convertible Luggage has a versatile design that lets you wheel it or carry it as a backpack with a detachable suspension system hidden in the front panel.

    • In an innovative move, the backpack suspension system is located on the front of the luggage, so the wheels and rigid handle stay away from your back
    • Contoured shoulder straps and padded hip belt feature dual-density foam and a moisture-wicking air-mesh back panel for comfort; sternum strap (with whistle) secures pack
    • Suspension zips cleanly away in front panel when not in use; simply unclip and remove the straps when you want to save weight
    • Hidden, padded quick-stash zippered pocket in the suspension back panel secures a passport, tablet or e-reader
    • Secondary, larger slip pocket behind removable suspension system can also hold a tablet, papers or magazines
    • Lockable, self-repairing zippers have finger-friendly zipper pulls; luggage locks sold separately
    • Interior compression straps help secure load
    • Large interior and exterior pockets provide additional organization
    • Oversize super-tread wheels with protective housing guards roll easily over urban obstacles
    • Handle extends smoothly and offers a comfortable grip; cleanly zips away when not deployed
    • Durable bag features rugged corner guards, reinforced hypalon material blocking, bumper protection and reinforced bartacks
    • Includes an ID tag, reflective accents for dusk and nighttime visibility and a zippered, gusseted water bottle pocket on the side
    • Bag weights 6 lbs. 7 oz. (including shoulder straps and hipbelt)
    • This item meets carry-on size restrictions for most airlines (size not to exceed 45 linear inches when adding L+W+H; this is subject to change, so check with your airline).

    Eagle Creek Flip Switch Wheeled Convertible Luggage - 22" - 2013 Overstock is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ridiculous. Returning The bag is fine as a rolling carry on if you detach the back pack straps and throw them away. Unfortunately, this still leaves some large foam pads in the bag, taking up useless space. I wanted the ability to carry the bag as a back pack as well. The straps "innovatively" attach in the front of the pack, not the back. The idea is that it is more comfortable to carry via the front, instead of with the frame against your bag. Perhaps true, but now you crush your belongings against your back, squishing your toiletries or having your camera jam into your spline. The worst parts about the design is that the straps take up too much room, and it takes too much time to put it in back pack mode. If I have a set of stairs or a long walk over uneven terrain, I want to quickly zip open the back pack straps and throw the bag on my back. This bag requires unzipping, adjusting velcro, and attaching the straps in four different places. Something I don't want to do on the street or in a crowded airport. Plus, when stowed, the straps take up about 4 inches of interior pack space! REI used top make a simple "Stratocruiser" wheeled back pack that was perfect, but they have "improved" the model with a higher price tag and useless features like a attached day pack that makes it too big to fit in an overhead compartment. I wish I could still buy the older REI model.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for European travel I could not be more pleased with the flip switch 22. It's incredibly well made and will last me a VERY long time. It's perfect for the way I travel because it gives me the ease of a carry-on, the benefit of using wheeled luggage within airports, and then switching it to a comfortable backpack to quietly walk those old cobbled European streets. The backpack also has the added benefit of security since none of the zippers face outwards and I can maneuver those busy train stations knowing my belongings are safe from pickpockets. This design is very comfortable to wear and also keeps dirty wheels away from your lower back. It's simply ingenious and it seems to be unique to Eagle Creek, because I couldn't find another like it from other brands. It's one of those rare products you come across that you consider buying two of them just in case something happens to the first one. I couldn't imagine traveling with anything else.
