The Eagle Creek Switchback Modular 22 Carry On is a bag that can do it all. The Switchback Modular 22 can roll or be carried as a back pack. It can carry-on or check, travel the countryside or the city. And it can go by elephant, longboat or llama. Eagle Creek's new Touch Point Handle System is longer (about 41 inches fully extended) than their previous handles, and with the button in the handle it is easier to use. The removable daypack is the perfect size to go under an airline seat and still leave room for your feet. The backpack system zips out from the back panel to reveal sleek, comfortable shoulder straps and a waist belt complete with lumbar padding to protect YOU from the luggage. Plus, the shoulder straps feature a "shockstrap", which is an elastic piece that wraps around your shoulder and absorbs the natural shocks that occur when you walk.

Voted 4/5

This pack is great for the person who wants to carry on everything and be on the go when they get there. It is very well made and you can put a weeks worth of stuff in it. As a pack, its reasonably comfortable. For it to fit into the overhead, you have to detach the day pack. Hint: So the day pack won't be counted as a separate carry-on piece, leave it attached until after going through the gate. Detach it after you get on the plane.

If it wasn't so damn expensive, I would give it 5 stars. I found mine on the internet for about half the retail price.
