🔎 Reviewers Have Said

  • "I bought one for my husband in December doing FIFO and on planes most days. He loved it so much, and I got FOMO so I bought myself one! I love that it opens like a suitcase. The worst part of backpacks is that everything you want is always at the bottom. It’s light and made to cabin baggage standards so I don’t have to stress. There are ample pockets and the straps you aren’t using tuck away conveniently."
  • "After traveling the past few years, we realized what works and doesn't work for when we travel. I brought this bag for my brother as a replacement to the carry-on luggage that he hated wheeling out in the narrow aisle of the plane, especially after a long flight. I like that the bag opens up like a suitcase and has all of the pockets at the top for easy access. It's super light and we can make the most out of the carry-on luggage allowance. My coworker also purchased this bag after seeing my purchase because they too hate wheeling out luggage off the plane."
