I was not paid for this post but I did receive my Eagle Creek carry on bag free of charge. If you follow my blog you know I always give my honest opinions and I don’t write about any product I am not happy with.
When I traveled to Vietnam my Eagle Creek Lync System 20 was with me and I’m so glad it was! I’ve been using Eagle Creek products for years which is why I am happy to tell you about them. I always try to pack lighter and lighter for each trip and by using my packing cubes along with the Lync System 20 made it very easy. It was hot in Vietnam which makes it easier to pack lighter. However, with packing cubes I could have still packed lightly had I been going to a cold climate (have you purchased packing cubes yet? You can get some here).
You have to assemble the bag when you take it out of the box but trust me when I say, if I can put it together (I followed the video on their website…seriously, it was so easy) then anyone can. You have the option to use it as a backpack or a carry-on and they even have a place for the backpack straps on the carry-on bag (I used it as a roller bag and not as a backpack). I didn’t bring the straps with me because I knew I would never carry it as a backpack but it’s a great option for those that may need it.
Did you happen to catch any of the Periscopes I did where I talked about this carry-on? The pic above and below were taken while I was in the capsule hotel in Narita, Japan. Everyone else had to pull out their big suitcases and sift through their clothing to find what they needed when they were getting dressed. Even those that had carry-ons still had a mess inside of their bags. Not me! My packing cubes fit nicely inside of my Lync carry-on and helped me stay organized. Staying organized while traveling is so important and helps out with being less stressed. Isn’t it a pretty color? I love the fact it’s bright-but not so bright that it’s obnoxious.
Have you ever had a noisy carry-on? You know when you roll it you can hear the wheels? I was amazed at how silent this carry-on is. I used it several times while I was in Vietnam because I went on two trips while I was there and each time all I heard while rolling my bag was silence. I also took it on my trip to Austin (I’ll be telling you about that soon) and my carry-on was still fab.
