    Comments about Wingman Carry-On Travel Bag:

    No planned obsolescence found in this bag, it will definitely last a long time. Its great to see a company making such quality products. Great for line trucking as it fits 5-7 days of clothes for me. Wingman is very sturdy and holds its shape and has a functional minimalist design. Im very happy with this bag. The wingman belongs in a 007 movie with its stealthy and sharp look. Lastly the bag has sternum straps!, I don't think its mentioned in the description or pictures.

      Comments about Wingman Carry-On Travel Bag:

      I get happy every time I have the opportunity to use this bag. I like to see things simple but also appreciate durability, comfort, and practical design. I took this bag as my only luggage for a 2 month trip to India. It was everything I needed. The simple, open design allows you to organize items however you'd like. The sinch straps are the best and help to compress whatever you've packed inside into a more compact space. You'll be amazed how much you can fit into this bag. The bag is absolutely rugged and built to last. It's heavy duty without being bulky. Handles on all sides make it easy to pull out of overhead compartments or out from under a seat. The storable shoulder straps turn it into a backpack, freeing your arms and hands. There are additional compartments for shoes or toiletries, and larger thin spaces for a laptop, books, papers, etc...
      I love this bag. It's one of the best purchases I've ever made.

                I purchased the Wingman Carry-On Travel Bag for my son. He was very pleased with it, he had been eyeing it for some time and was real excited to get it! He likes all the pockets and storage, he will get good use out of it for many things.

                  I travel a ton and I wished I had this for all my trips! This is an amazing bag, although I have yet to take this for a business trip I actually might end up doing so! I took an international trip, I didn't want to drag a bag through customs or wait for checked luggage and this was perfect. It was enough to actually pack much more than I did. I am adult woman and I packed 5 skirts, 3 dresses, 10 tshirts, 2 tanks, several bikinis, undergarments and everything else for a little over 2 weeks. I actually was also able to fit a straightener and a mini travel hairdryer. I was also able to add an extra pair of shoes. I was worried about not being able to bring anything back when I ordered this bag, but rest assured I was able to bring things back as well!

                  This could be different for some since I am a size 2 woman and mostly travel light, but just it would still be a great bag if you do weekend trips etc. Regardless, great buy for me. Super convenient I will probably tear this to shreds traveling with it all the time! :)

                  Comments about Wingman Carry-On Travel Bag:

                  I absolutely love the design. I was looking for a suitcase, in carry on size, that could be worn as a backpack for easy mobility, and this bag is exactly that. The shape is boxy so I think it looks a little strange on my back but the extra room in the corners is very useful when packing. Unfortunately the sternum strap on my bag was damaged in delivery, but timbuk2 was very quick to fix the problem and send out a replacement strap to get me on my way. I used it for a quick weekend getaway and it was perfect and I will be using it for a 10 day trip to Belize in February and I know it will be perfect for that as well!

                    Comments about Wingman Carry-On Travel Bag:

                    First, the only real shortcomings of this bag (in my opinion) are: (a) a lack of padding in the spaces for the Tablet and Laptop...there is some padding, but you'll want a little more via a sleeve of some sort; and (b) no water bottle sleeve - though I think that adding one might mess with the look/style in which case I'm glad they didn't.

                    Now, all the things I LOVE about this bag:

                    - Super durable! One of my goals is to reduce my carbon footprint by minimizing possessions; this bag was purchased to serve many functions and last a very long time - I have no doubt it'll last forever or until I choose to replace it (which I'm not anticipating happening). I went with the Rip-Stop Nylon, which I was told by reps. at Timbuk2 is their most durable material (all their materials are super durable though and come with a lifetime warranty).

                    - Stylish! This thing looks cool without looking like it's trying to be trendy or hip (I got the Carbon Fire version and it looks great). This is also professional looking enough to take into a business meeting without feeling like you're being improper or too casual (Full disclosure - most of the cities I do business in are places like Seattle, San Francisco, and other cities that are relatively casual...I would be fine walking into an NYC meeting with this though).

                    - PERFECT size! I hate checking a bag...I hate having to gate-check a bag when I'm on smaller jets...I hate checking out of a hotel and leaving my bag with the front desk while I go exploring for my last day before jumping on a flight...I like having all of my stuff with me at all times, and this bag affords me that. It's small enough to fit in the tiny overhead bins on regional jets (and probably under the seat if necessary), but big enough to hold A-LOT! It's built in compression straps go a long way in helping with that. I'm currently on a vacation in the Bahamas for 9 days, using this bag (and no other), and here's what I was able to pack into this (for reference, I'm a 6 foot tall, 185lb man - my clothes size is mediums):
                    - 1 pair of relatively packable tennis shoes
                    - 1 pair of brown dress shoes
                    - 2 pairs of jeans
                    - 1 packable winter jacket with hoodie (worn on the flight but packed at the connection airport)
                    - 1 packable zip-up long sleeve windbreaker
                    - 1 pair of basketball shorts
                    - 1 pair of board-shorts
                    - 2 button up long sleeve dress shirts
                    - 3 t-shirts
                    - 4 pairs of socks
                    - 1 pair of flip flops
                    - 7 pairs of boxer briefs
                    - Toiletry bag with a pair of clippers inside, and the essentials for a male
                    - 1 iPad-air w/keyboard attached
                    - 2 chargers
                    - Passport and Document Holder
                    - 1 Notebook
                    - 1 pair of earbuds
                    - One smallish power-bank
                    - 1 large steel water bottle
                    All of the above and I was able to fit the bag under the seat in front of me on a Boeing 777. I'm thinking of making this my everyday bag as well as my travel bag...it might be a little bigger than I'd like for a daily commute backpack, but it's not so big that I'd feel silly commuting with it - I'm going to have to see what it looks like when it isn't fully packed.

                    - Versatility! This can be worn as a backpack (how I wear it), a shoulder strapped duffel bag, or carried by its handle as an oversize messengeresque bag/duffel. I love that the backpack straps are durable, and so easy to hide if I want to put them away and carry the bag by it's handle for a more formal look (though I've yet felt the need to).

                    An all around great carry-on bag, and something that could probably serve as a daily commuter for most (especially if you pack lunch, jacket, umbrella, etc. and use public transit). Would've loved this when I used to commute in and out of downtown Seattle.

                    The older brother of our original Wingman, this updated Wingman has outgrown hostels. Its sleek new styling works downtown or way way out of town, but its tuck-away backpack straps are still there when you need them. A time-tested traveler, the Wingman's pocketing makes sense. Its large main compartment opens wide for easy packing and a bottom expandable pocket quarantines your shoes or unmentionables from the main compartment. A small front zipper pocket enables quick access to your cards, phone, and passport while secure padded pockets carry up to a 17" MacBook Pro and an iPad. Like a good Wingman, this duffel is ready for anything.
