The secret to slipping through O'Hare's gauntlet of nerves and angst relies on your ability to move freely. Our much-loved MLC (Maximum Legal Carry-on) holds three to five days' worth of clothes, yet meets airline carry-on size requirements so you can get in and out as fast as possible. Hidden ergonomic shoulder straps quickly convert this soft-sided suitcase to a backpack for the carry-on traveler who hits the ground running and doesn't stop; with two handles for carrying like a briefcase. External zippered pockets provide easy access to travel docs and vital gear. An internal floating divider inside the main compartment separates clean from dirty. Made from 1,200-denier polyester (100% recycled) with a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

Great Light Weight Carry On
PROS: High quality materials that one expects from Patagonia! The zippers are strong. I love the storable back pack straps. I used both the back pack and shoulder strap when I used this bag on a two trip to Eastern Europe. I had been pushing off buying this bag because of the cost, but I'm glad I did. It is great to finally have a light weight bag that meets European budget carrier size limitations. I hope it lasts for decades like my Patagonia Messenger Bag

Versatile bag
PROS: Great bag, used it on a 3 week trip to France. and even a great weekender. It worked so well decided to get one for each of our kids.

Great for 3 days or a full week
PROS: I can't speak for business travel, but for a casual trip this bag is great for up to a full week. Far roomier than I expected. After packing for a 3-day trip I had room for several more articles (days worth) of clothing. I pack a lot lighter than my girlfriend, and the backpack straps allow my hands to be free to comfortably transport her bag as well as mine.

CONS: As other reviews have stated, the front zipper opening is too small for the pocket size.

Great bag
PROS: Great bag for 2-5 days. Travel every week for work and this bag will be tested. I like the the multiple pockets for quick access in security line (ie...laptop, liquids, etc).

CONS: More subtle color options would be nice. Got the black, but would prefer dark brown or navy (still professional, but different).

Lots of Space
PROS: Good size bag with lots of storage pockets, etc.

CONS: While it might be the max legal size, it appears as if it would fit in the overhead of a regional jet. could use a little more flexibility to stretch the depth a bit!
