Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice features but too much bag. Wish it came in 30L size. I write this review with the one-bag travelers in mind. I travel carryon only, domestic and international, and my preferred mode is a convertible backpack. Just makes navigating planes, trains, boats, city streets and remoteness so much easier. This bag really has many great features, great organization, and looks cool. But for anyone under 5'6" this bag is overwhelming to carry on your back. It even looks huge on the models in the photos! If you're packing this full, you'll break your shoulders and back from the poor weight distribution if you need to go any distance. If you want to carry 40L, you're likely better off with a true backpack, even though it won't look as cool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well as a carry-on bag The bag has lots of room and my laptop and iPad fit great. They were also easy to remove for security. I found the front pocket a little difficult to get things in and out of when the bag was packed. I preferred to keep things in the iPad pocket because the iPad provided more rigidity and made stuffing my passport and boarding passes in easier. Also, when carrying it around the airport fully loaded it did become a little uncomfortable (I was carying it messenger style, but that's my preference). Also, the hooks for the shoulder straps did start to squeak after a while. Overall it served me well, and I would recommend it as a carry-on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful yet awkward The phrase "jack of all trades, master of none" comes to mind with the Wingman. Like all Timbuk2 bags, this is a sturdy, beautifully constructed bag. Unfortunately, it suffers from a design that in trying to encompass a variety of use cases manages to do none of them very well. Although it's supposed to be the only bag you need for a 2-3 day trip by combining the functions of a laptop bag and a carryon, the biggest failing is that it is simply a terrible bag for safe electronics transport, which severely limits the utility for business travel. It has a laptop compartment that could supposedly fit a 17-inch laptop, but even a 12-inch ultra-portable in a sleeve just fills up the whole compartment. If the clothing compartment is full (which is likely), then the PC will have some stress/flex pressure placed on it. There's no good place for the chargers, power cords, laptop power bricks, mouse, or the other accessories typically carried by a business traveler, nor is there a key ring or dedicated 3-1-1 pocket, which is really inconvenient. The impermeable shoe compartment is a great idea, but the execution leaves much to be desired - one pair of shoes cuts the available space for clothes by around 20%, and since there isn't a great spot for the liquid stowage, you wind up using the liquid-proof shoe area for the 3-1-1 bag. Since the laptop and electronics (laptop/tablet/e-reader) wind up on the rear outside of the bag in backpack mode the weight distribution is very awkward. This has a number of side effects: -Having the devices on the outer flap also makes the main flap very heavy and inflexible, and thus the main compartment is best opened gingerly, and after the laptop has been removed, since the heavy flap distorts the shape of the bag. -The backpack straps are kind of wide and don't distribute the weight very well, and place a lot of pressure on the neck, which can make long trips on foot unpleasant, especially with a laptop hanging on the rear of the bag. -The awkward weight distribution means that I've also never successfully used it as a messenger bag. To sum up, this is a very interesting concept, but I would avoid this bag if your primary use case is business travel with a laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE. I ordered this because I love to travel but HATE to check luggage. I took it on its first run over an 8-day New Year's holiday and I absolutely love it. My sister battled a giant suitcase the whole time; I whipped out the backpack straps and sailed right along. It carried everything I needed plus the extra things I bought on vacation. And when I did check it on the way home, it got lost (of course) and showed up in great condition, no worse for the TSA wear. It's exactly what I was looking for in a bag: attractive, tough, infinite room (it expands a little bit and always seems to have just enough space for that ONE MORE THING), easy to carry. If it ever wears out, I'm getting another.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from perfect except for the straps! Just ordered this bag to test for a 1/2 year trip through Europe. The overall size and large size of all the pockets are fantastic. However, for a bag made to carry as a backpack, the straps are ridiculously uncomfortable. The straps are sewn very close together, and hit right at my neck (I am 5'4 with narrow shoulders). Even had others try it on and they agreed. Tried it with a detachable hip belt I own and it made a HUGE difference in comfort. Also inner pocket is not mesh - which would have been nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If You Travel You MUST Own This Bag This bag is a must have if you are looking for an all inclusive 1-2 night travel bag that you can carry on. I have been traveling with my custom TimBuk2 messenger bag and roller bag, however this was too much for a simple 1-2 night business trip. The solution was a NO BRAINER.......welcome Wingman. This bag holds my laptop, chargers, notebook, pens and all the clothes that I need. There are handles on all sides of the bag for easy removal out of the overhead bins. If you don't want to use it as a backpack the DURABLE straps are easily concealed. How to make it better: Add external waterbottle pocket Zipper pull tabs on all zippers Internal pocket for pens, keys, glasses and highlighters Overall this bag is one Tuff traveling machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite new travel bag I was a little skeptical of using this as a carry on bag for traveling for more than few days, but after a recent trip to Philly for 7 days, I am a skeptic no longer. I was able to pack workout clothes and running shoes, a pair of Sperrys, my cosmetics and more than enough clothes. It was tight, but I was able to get in everything I wanted. Keep in mind that you might have to be a smart packer to make this bag work, mainly wearing your bulkiest shoes and jacket, etc. I loved having the option of messenger bag strap or the backpack straps. Both were very comfortable and I think I prefer the backpack straps. Icing on the cake is the outside pockets allowing easy access to stuff you want in the airport (Ipad, earphones, wallet). I am a huge fan of this bag!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for business or casual travel I picked the Wingman specifically for travel and have taken it on three domestic (USA) flights so far. I easily carried a mix of clothes for 3-4 days, and never had a problem at the gate or fitting it into overhead bins or under the seat. Some might be turned off by the lack of structue but, like Gumby, it bends and flexes when needed but still keeps its shape well. Grab any of the carry handles and you know this bag is solid and going wherever you need it to. The Goldrush fabric is sharp; a subtle hex pattern with dark yellow accent stitching, it is understated but retains just the right amount of unique style. It seems just as durable as my collection of messengers. However, there's one really notable flaw: a single layer of fabric covers the backpack straps on the exterior. I'm not excessively rough on my kit but I don't baby it either, and these are definite abrasion points when the bag is full and the weight is on this side. A thin piece of plastic sandwiched on the interior adds a small amount of rigidity to the bag, but also concentrates pressure on the straps and against that one sheet of cloth -- when bouncing against your leg, being dragged through security, or sliding on furniture or the floor. I'm hoping it won't be a problem long term, but vinyl or some foam on the interior of the pocket would have been an easy preventative fix. (Yeah, ok, I suppose I could put it on the other side, but still...) Overall, a great bag and a great purchase.
