The Business Carry-On Travel Backpack
The quality seems generally good, but doesn’t have some of the benchmark brands (like YKK zippers)
How much does it weigh? This bag was the second lightest in the carry-on travel backpack category
It can pack in a lot of stuff, but due to lack of frame (which makes it light) can get barrel shaped when stuffed.
There is not too much that grabs my attention about this bag.
In regards to price this bag is on of the top three leaders in the carry-on travel backpack category
There is nothing incredibly fancy or snazzy about the EC Adventure Weekender, but for business travel you don’t want snazzy anyways! This is a bag that works great for the business traveler who needs doesn’t want to check luggage (or a great addition to checked bags due to the pass through that allows you to slip over handles of wheeled bag). With the classic briefcase look to it, you would feel just fine bringing it into a meeting if the situation required you to.

reasons to travel with this
- Lockable zippers keeping your items safe
- Great organizational pockets for smaller items and documets
- Solid briefcase handle and shoulder strap
- Sleeve for attaching to roller bags makes it great for combining with checked luggage
- Main compartment divides into two equal parts to allow for more organization of clothes
- Straps stow away which help it keep from getting tangled in overheads or when checked
things to consider
- Shoulder strap tends to slip off shoulders due to soft fabric
- Connections for backpack straps don’t seem to be heavy duty (plastic and not metal)
- No designated laptop sleeve (there is a pocket that could easily work as laptop sleeve but is not padded)
- Lack of internal frame (which keeps it light) causes bag to bulge into a barrel shape when packed tight
- Because of lack of weight bearing hip-belt all the weight is on shoulders
