    I can second this. I use mine when I bring clothes with me. Can pack about a weeks worth in it. Longer I use something bigger

    I've carried an Osprey Manta 30 backpack. My son carries a Manta 28 newer year. But haven't had any issues.

    Not sure how the size your looking for but a vertx gamut may be a choice for you. It however as many will it is deceptively shallow with almost no depth expansion it's a rather tall bag but good quality use mine for carry in areas where a lower profile is necessary

    The Gamut is maybe the worst Carry-on bag that I have tried!

    The lack of depth and space in general coupled with the many pockets meant that when going through checkpoints I need to empty the bag several times but then I could not cram everything back in there quickly to leave?

    I still keep trying it too but always with the same results,I love the way the bag seems like it would work.

    I have the smaller GR2 and the Covrt18. If I'm carrying a laptop, I prefer the GR2. I really like the way the GR2 carries a laptop. The Covrt18 has more admin if you're carrying smaller items. Price-wise, you'll find the Covrt18 hard to beat.

    No experience with the Camelbak.

    Never an issue here maybe its the preferred traveler number or the mil id card. I use a modded 5.11 MOAB 10, in coyote brown modded for shoulder strap use, and I fly alot as well. That or use a 5.11 nitro in that black grey combo. if I had to choose, urban assault.

    I just happen to be on my first trip with an Arc'teryx Assault 30/Khard 30. I was a little worried it might not fit under the seat. And it wouldn't on one of those smaller planes that have the annoyingly small underfoot aisle foot areas. But...I'm in a window seat on a 737 today and it's fine. So...Pretty good carry on option.

    Expensive as heck, but I'm carrying tech gear in it and it's good that it's already padded.i have a laptop in one of those plastic shells instead of a slip case and I'm totally fine with that. It's work issue so I sort of don't care if it gets wrecked. Hahaha.
