For the last 12 years I’ve been using the Eagle Creek Switchback Carry On as my go to luggage for long term traveling and budget trips. I save my fancy hard shell Samsonite Carry On and Checked luggage for when I go on short or luxury trips since they are more sleek and stylish.
The Eagle Creek Switchback is my favorite backpack because it combines the functionality of a backpack with the convenience of wheeled luggage which comes in very handy when going through airports. I’m able to easily convert the wheeled carry on to a backpack when I come across cobblestoned streets, rough roads, steep stairs or have to make my way through crowded train stations.
Here are a few images and a video of the Switchback.
I’ve had two over the last 12 years and the same green switchback (pictured above) for 7 years and it’s still looks great and feels sturdy.
