    Comments about Aviator Wheeled Backpack:

    Bought this for my 16 yr old son. My boys all loved the styling! Very masculine and "cool." And it has plenty of room for clothes for a 5 day ski trip. It's the 2nd time I've purchased luggage for one of my boys and I'll be getting more for the youngest. Great purchase! Just need a hanging toiletry bag to match...

    Comments about Aviator Wheeled Backpack:

    I have yet to use this bag. It was given as a gift for a trip this upcoming summer. It's roomy, has many pockets in usable spaces, and has handles all the way around. It rolls easily but it hasn't been packed full at this point. When carried and not full, the bag is uncomfortable to wear but I'll give it a chance until I get used to how and where to adjust the straps. I am happy with the sturdiness of the rollers. The material seems durable despite reading reviews that say it might tear in baggage handling.

    Comments about Aviator Wheeled Backpack:

    I travel a lot and I am always looking for the perfect bag. Being able to use rolling wheels or as a back pack makes this perfect for me. I never know what I may need depending on what other bags I bring. This bag fits any occasion. Just the right size for a long weekend. Quality as usual with Timbuk2. Also love all the grab handles no matter what way you pick it up.

      Used it on a trip recently and found it had very angle storage space, and loved all the various, well thought out, pockets options.

        Comments about Aviator Wheeled Backpack:

        Overall, great bag. Love the look.
        It's not huge but works well for the 3-5 day trip.
        As others have mentioned, the waist tension straps keep falling out and getting stuck under the wheel.
        The other annoyance is that the two main zippers are hidden under the flaps. It's hard to get your fingers in to grab the zipper pulls, and the zippers themselves feel a bit cheap or like the teeth are too small to pull smoothly. This, combined with 3 buckles makes for not the quickest access.

        4 stars anyway for style, simplicity, smooth rolling. Haven't used the backpack straps yet, though it was a major selling point.

            Would work for short trim with minimal clothing. Bag is heavy even empty. Straps fall out and catch in wheels. Backpack mode is in comfortable. Many handles is nice. Would work for short trips.

              Comments about Aviator Wheeled Backpack:

              Love the look & function of the bag. My one concern is that getting the straps out (or back in) isn't trivial (perhaps it will be with practice). Rolling the bag with the straps out doesn't work well -- wheels get caught in the straps. I'm going to keep working on it since it'd be most convenient to have the straps out most of the time, even when rolling.
