It will be the first time, but I foresee no problems.  I see people take way bigger bags than this into the cabin.

I've always liked the look of the Finisterre waterproof duffle bag, which is made by Ortlieb. It's got backpack straps, so can be worn in a couple of ways. Carryology had a behind the design feature, which is worth a read if you're interested in the bag.

"Finisterre Duffle"

@mclaincausey the only backpack that I know of with a suit carrier is the Henty Wingman.

Do you need a 55 litre bag? I tend to find that what I carry in my luggage expands to fill the available space, but if I'm being ruthless, I can travel for a week on something half that size.

They make a similar one to that suit carrier that is a tube with shoe storage in one end, then a garment bag wraps around the outside, but it's not a backpack. And also similar to that one, not spacious enough to really be an all in one for 3-5 day trips.

55L includes the 15L detachable backpack--given gym outfit, a few days of clothing, 2 or 3 pair of shoes, electronic and business gear, etc, I do believe I could fill that, though it is certainly a lot of volume.
Think it, be it.

Ah, you're not as much of a minimalist when it comes to travel as I am. :)

You're in Denver? Topo Designs, who're based there, offer the Travel Bag, which is a 40 litre, carry-on bag. Some of their other designs can be clipped onto it.

I actually prefer the older style, which was made in the US rather than Vietnam. Havn have a few left.

The Slicks 25 backpack is available with a suit carrier.

Topo is being made in Vietnam now? That makes me pretty sad. Being made in the US made them much more attractive to me.

This might turn into a Random Rant for me. I saw a woman arrive late and take someone else’s bag out of the overhead bin to put her oversized roller in. She left the other bag in the aisle and played dumb as to who’s bag it was. Luckily, a stewardess called her out and embarrassed her in front of the entire plane.

Topo is still made in Colorado to my knowledge

Edit: tech shells are Vietnam and insulation pieces Canada. Bags remain Colorado-made.

Edit 2: contradictory information on their page, but it looks like a mix now on the bags place of manufacture. At any rate the travel bag didn't do it for me when I inspected it at the flagship store Saturday. Nor did the X-Pac Klettersack unfortunately.

Hopefully they gate checked her bag. Carry-ons should be charged before checked bags. The economics as they stand now drive these bad behaviors. It's already more convenient to carry on, instead of capturing value for that convenience they make it even worse by charging for checked bags, such that people pack massive bags and force them into the overhead compartments, sometimes more than once.
Think it, be it.

Veilance bags on sale @ EastDane now. Of course when I asked a week ago, they told me no sales in the immediate future. 🤨

Oh well! I’m super happy with my V1 Nomin anyway.





If you’re on the fence, go for it. They are both amazing bags.

I nabbed this Filson barrel pack today. I'm curious what the quality will be like or if Filson's lifetime warranty would apply. I didn't see anything regarding where it was made, so it has me curious.
