👍 Reasons to Buy

  • Features a highly functional organization that keeps things in place while travelling.
  • Truly versatile as you can carry it in multiple ways according to your preference/activity: as a briefcase, a shoulder bag, or a backpack.
  • Great craftsmanship and really durable. This bag would last a long time with proper care.
  • The stowable straps make it possible to store it on overhead cabins and even under your airplane seat hassle-free.

🤔 Things to Consider

  • The zippers are a bit sticky around the laptop compartment. This can be a good or bad thing according to your preference.
  • The back padding offers minimal airflow which might leave your back sweating after some time using it.
  • Some of the organizational pockets are oriented sideways so of your things may slip out of their pockets if used as backpack.

💬 Reviewers Have Said

  • "...the more I use this bag, the more I like it and the better it performs. Access to the various sections and compartments is excellent - I can find anything and rarely 'lose' anything, Having used a variety of backpacks and laptop bags over the last 25 years, I have to say this is (by far) the most practical, well thought out under-seat overnight bag ever."
  • "Overall, I very much appreciated the bag, not only for its functionality but also for its abundant storage space. For a long time, I have been looking for a different model from many manufacturers and in many stores, but did not find anything that met my requirements like this bag."
  • "This is absolutely the best design I've encountered in 30 years of carrying briefcases. This design holds all of my equipment, which varies daily between carrying one or TWO laptop computers (Mac and Windows), external hard drives, cables, a small camera, paperwork, an Eagle Creek RFID Travel Zip Organizer (as my wallet), and other small equipment and convenience items. My last briefcase was a large, wheeled unit of a much larger and bulkier design, carrying the same volume of equipment. I highly recommend this item."

Eagle Creek Convertabrief Review

"The Eagle Creek Convertabrief is an excellent multitasker—it’s a brief, messenger bag, and backpack all in one. Not only that, it has tons of organization you can pack out with your tech accessories and other everyday essentials."

11 Of The Best Travel Products You’ll Never Want To Be Without

"I travel for business quite a bit, usually to conferences. I often have to stuff my laptop bag until it’s overflowing — such as at Outdoor Retailer where I was carrying a laptop, tablet, notebook, jacket, video camera, DSLR camera, and various items that I picked up for review during the show. The Convertabrief is perfect for a guy like me."

Eagle Creek Convertabrief is Great For Traveling With Tech Gear

"The pockets are extremely roomy. The bag can get really big when stuffed because there are just so many pockets. In the picture below with the files my husband is able to pack a complete overnight change of clothes in there so for his super quick trips he doesn’t even need another bag."
