"I am a college professor, and bought this bag for work. I tote a bag up to four miles a day, walking long distances from my office to classrooms, and then walking to and from campus from home. I've been using the this bag for a few weeks, and so far, I'm impressed. The materials are sturdy and high end for such a reasonably-priced bag. The zippers move with ease - I can easily zip or unzip compartments with one hand, something I could not do with my previous bags. The handle extension is long and mostly moves smoothly. Great variety of small and zippered compartments keeps my stuff much better-organized. The main compartment is huge - almost too big! - I can fit folders, books, my lunch, and even gym clothes! The latptop compartment in the middle keeps my MacBook safe and secure. The side zippered compartments easily fit water bottles, and can either be partially zipped for easy access (be sure to pull the zipper up at least half way or your water bottle may fall out), or bottles can be completely enclosed in those zippered slots. The wheels are excellent - they are quiet and roll smoothly on all surfaces. I have not used the bag as a backpack yet, although I really like the zippered storage areas for the straps, and the protective barrier that keeps dirty wheels from making contact with your back. Still, I'm not quite sure that I will ever use this as a backpack because it is pretty large! The overall large size of the bag was a bit off-putting at first, but I've noticed even bigger bags on campus, and don't really care if anyone mistakes it for a luggage bag. Despite its size, the smooth rolling mechanism makes it feel light when pulling it. It also stands up fine - does not fall over when stationary. It held up fine in wet snow last week (no leakage). My last rolling bag lasted 6 months, and my record is two semesters (barely), so we'll see how this one holds up. It's my first purchase of a High Sierra product, and so far, I'd definitely recommend!"

"When I travel with my laptop, I have a long list of requirements for my carryon. My research of several possible bags led me to this one, and it has exceeded my expectations. First and foremost, it has to function equally well as a rolling laptop carryon, as a laptop/briefcase for business, and as a backpack for "touristing". This bag does all of these quite well. My one dissatisfaction is that the top pocket sags forward and is shallow, so things sometimes fall out when it is unzipped. Most of the ads and reviews hit the main features, but I'll list some of the less common ones. 1) When rolling it, I can leave one backpack strap out so that it's easy to sling it over my shoulder when I come to a place that can't be rolled. 2) It's comfortable both slung over a shoulder or worn as a backpack. 3) The handle is long enough for a 6-footer to keep from banging his heel on it. It's a double tube handle, which is more stable, more durable, and when stowed provides a more protective structure on the pack. 4) One of the compartments is big enough for me to stow my "in-flight" bag that I pull out and keep under the seat. 5) It's easy to pull the laptop (and put it back) during security without disturbing anything else in the bag. 6) The entire bottom is VERY impact resistant. 7) It's lighter than most of the bags in this class. 8) Build quality is excellent in all regards."

"Perfect gear for nursing students who carry about 20lbs+ of books, laptop+cable, clothes+jacket, bottled water, food, shoes, umbrella, etc. Lots of rooms, organized pockets, well designed, best in class. Trust me--I tried couple models before I decided to purchase this one. Ebags Router was good but too small for 15" laptop, and it also not good when you place laptop in the back compartment with all the weights loading on top the laptop when rolling (returned). High Sierra Freewheel was okay too but less spaces than Powerglide (returned). If you need roomy rolling backpack, this model will not disappoint. It also fit to carry on for air travel too. However, it may look big to carry on your back when not rolling, but who care to carry on your back when you have wheel--huh?"
