    Comments about Wingman Carry-On Travel Bag:

    Great bag for weekend away, used recently on trip to Australia and was only bag I carried. Even fit the size and weight restrictions on air New Zealand, 7kg weight limit. Was looking for a bag I could take on business trip and not check a bag, this was perfect.

      Comments about Wingman Carry-On Travel Bag:

      I've used this bag mostly for weekend trips and found it fits very well in the overhead bins. It has a bit more room than other similar bags, and it seems to look pretty decent over the shoulder. I particularly like the absence of excess straps on the exterior and the separate shoe compartment. It seems to have just enough pockets and space for everything I need.

      Comments about Wingman Carry-On Travel Bag:

      I picked the Wingman specifically for travel and have taken it on three domestic (USA) flights so far. I easily carried a mix of clothes for 3-4 days, and never had a problem at the gate or fitting it into overhead bins or under the seat. Some might be turned off by the lack of structue but, like Gumby, it bends and flexes when needed but still keeps its shape well. Grab any of the carry handles and you know this bag is solid and going wherever you need it to. The Goldrush fabric is sharp; a subtle hex pattern with dark yellow accent stitching, it is understated but retains just the right amount of unique style. It seems just as durable as my collection of messengers.

      However, there's one really notable flaw: a single layer of fabric covers the backpack straps on the exterior. I'm not excessively rough on my kit but I don't baby it either, and these are definite abrasion points when the bag is full and the weight is on this side. A thin piece of plastic sandwiched on the interior adds a small amount of rigidity to the bag, but also concentrates pressure on the straps and against that one sheet of cloth -- when bouncing against your leg, being dragged through security, or sliding on furniture or the floor. I'm hoping it won't be a problem long term, but vinyl or some foam on the interior of the pocket would have been an easy preventative fix. (Yeah, ok, I suppose I could put it on the other side, but still...)

      Overall, a great bag and a great purchase.

        Comments about Wingman Carry-On Travel Bag:

        I used this for a 2 week trip to Alaska when I wanted to only take a carry-on. I also want it for future use for city breaks etc. The design attracted me as it seemed to be flexible with the various different carrying options.
        The bag was great to use as it is roomy and strong, plus looks very cool in the grey carbon color. However, when full the shoulder/chest straps on their own are insufficient to carry the bag as it is big enough to be quite heavy with a full load of clothes/shoes/gear and gave me neck/shoulder ache in a way that a true backpack does not. It really needs a waist strap to make the backpack function useable. I found myself eyeing up a set of luggage wheels in the airport (which I resisted) and am now considering if I can make my own waist belt somehow to make it more useable in future. Other than this issue, it's a great bag with pockets in the right places and a spacious main compartment.

          This has been by far the best purchase for travel I have made. I travel a lot and loved it so much I had to get one for my son for his travels. Also loved it so much I had to get the co-pilot as well. Between those two, I never have to have a check on again. I could travel 3 weeks easy. Thank you timbuk2.

              Bag material ripped after first trip. It wasn't packed to maximum consumption. The pocket that holds toiletries is located at the bottom of the backpack, so causes the bottoms of the bag to pull down. Length of bag as a backpack is just not functional for traveling and will cause you back to hurt from the pulling.

                I use the bag for regularly travelling back to my home country by plane. It enables me to bring along my laptop, cloth and more. Furthermore, I use it too for going to conferences and short trips. The bag is so roomy, that, when filled entirely, it get a little heavy :)

                  I wanted something that I could take on weekend trips, as well as week or two trips, and this bag does what I want. Well thought out compartments, great straps inside, too zipper layout. The ability to use as a shoulder bag, or grab convenient handles, or convert to a backpack! Exactly what I wanted...

                  Nice features but too much bag. Wish it came in 30L size.

                  I write this review with the one-bag travelers in mind. I travel carryon only, domestic and international, and my preferred mode is a convertible backpack. Just makes navigating planes, trains, boats, city streets and remoteness so much easier. This bag really has many great features, great organization, and looks cool. But for anyone under 5'6" this bag is overwhelming to carry on your back. It even looks huge on the models in the photos! If you're packing this full, you'll break your shoulders and back from the poor weight distribution if you need to go any distance. If you want to carry 40L, you're likely better off with a true backpack, even though it won't look as cool.

                  What's this all about?

                  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.
