Pros Sleek, comfortable, durable, thoughtful travel specific featuresGood suspension, lightweight, affordable, gobbles gearVersatile, duffel-like ease of use, just the right balance of travel featuresVersatile, durable, comfortable, intuitiveLightweight, durable, affordable, highly versatile, can become a daily use duffel
Cons Expensive, business travel specificSquare design protrudes from back, too big for some airlines checked baggageBackpack straps not comfortable for long distances, gear sags in soft structure when not fullSmall hip belt, not best for long distances with heavy loadsLess organization features, not set up for traveling with electronics
Bottom Line If business travel is your gig, this is an excellent travel backpack.This travel backpack is easy to pack, organized, and very durable, though a little bulky.Even more durable and user-friendly, while still a cleverly designed pack backed by one of the best warranties and progressive companies in the industry.An excellent contender, the Overhaul makes traveling easy and excels in comfort and versatility.A lightweight duffel that converts into a highly versatile travel backpack with shoulder straps.
