Best of the Best
An item achieves "Best of the Best" distinction when eBags customers give it exceptionally high marks in their post-purchase reviews. In order for an item to be "Best of the Best," it must meet the following criteria:
The overall rating must be 4.5 out of 5 stars or better.
90% or more of customers must say they would recommend it.
"Out of the box, you first think it is darn too small, but it expands and surprises you once you start putting things in. One caution; it is for the organized and the packing-cube savvy person if you are traveling for more than 5 days. It has internal and external compression straps that are very helpful when cramming things. I used packing cubes as someone here advised, so I was able to fit in as much as I fit in to my other 22" hard case carry-on. If you like to travel light with style, if you are organized, but suffering from luggage related separation anxiety, this is your bag."
"The best part of this bag is the outer laptop compartment which makes removing the laptop for airport security really easy and keeps my computer protected. The bag would be SO much better if it would open completely but that's my only complaint. Otherwise, it's a great bag."

"This is an overall great bag. It is perfect for 2-3 nights away. My only negative is that the large pocket does not open so that the flap can lie flat/open. It's a little annoying when packing.
I totally love this bag."
"I bought this to avoid carrying an extra bag for my laptop. The computer fits fine but there are not enough pockets of different sizes for cables, external drive and other accessories. The suitcase is well built and looks great."
"One of the best telescopic handles I have seen. Sturdy wheels, well protected in key areas and the red lining looks good!
However, compartment space seems to be compromised at the bottom and the main storage area lining is only held up with velcro, apart from that a great bag."
"I purchased this bag to eliminate a shoulder bag and this bag has done that and more. Having a carry on with wheels has been great it fits my clothes and reading material. North Face has designed a very well structured bag with great wheels that will last!
I do wish that it was slightly better organized inside the bag but I have just used one of the organizers from REI and it works great.
A great product."
