In an effort to combine the best parts of a backpack with the design language of a piece of carry-on luggage, SWISSGEAR really got it right with this one. Upon closer inspection, this bag is replete with cool, useful features such as daisy chain webbing, a rugged outer shell to prevent potential rips and tears and a nice, plush, breathable back panel and straps for balanced carry. Exploring within the bag is when things get interesting. The main compartment allows you to open the bag totally flat like a piece of luggage and, furthermore, you can pack it like one too. Inside you’ll find that the elastic and zippered pockets are every bit as useful as you would find in a carry-on bag and every bit as effective. The bags front pocket is even designed to be used while the pack is horizontally attached to a piece of rolling luggage and multiple carry handles let you maneuver with this bag however you see fit.
