LuggageGuru.com - High Sierra - AT3 Sierra-Lite - Carry-On Wheeled Backpack with Removable Day Pack
We both have this 22" carry-on and removable daypack and LOVE OUR BAGS!! I know I'll never put the whole bag on my shoulders, so I removed the main straps from the back pocket. I can keep papers and small book there instead of the straps. I use the zipooff pack now and then for day trips.
My sister is now packing hers for Thailand 20 day trip (carry-on only).
My other sister is going for the London Games in August (hopefully her son will qualify in hammer throw this time!)

She got such a great price (I spent a bit more last year) that she ordered 2 and donated all her old luggage to charity)
We travel exclusively with ours and the convenience of overhead size, with pack under seat, is just what the travel doctor ordered!
So, if you're looking for a new bag, they have it! Just wanted to share."wherever you go, there you are"

Thanks for the heads up on the luggage. We're thinking about replacing our current luggage and this bag looks great. Did you research the bag on the internet and is this the best price available?

I bought mine almost 2 yrs ago. We had the 20" version and it was great for several years. We still have one of the small ones, but my handle got damaged so I went for the bigger one.
When my husband saw it, he wanted one to use as crew bag, since it's much lighter than his usual. He no longer has to lug the big boxy flight kit, so it's his choice now.
I paid about $110 for mine, about $100 for his for Christmas LY, so that price is insanely good! Get that free shipping (I usually link thru skymilesshopping or similar program for bonus points/miles etc.)
BTW--the qualifiers for the Olympics are being held in Oregon--maybe you can go, Piranha!

Thanks for the info. Not only are the track and field trials in Oregon, but they're right here in Eugene. They were here four years ago and I think they'll be here again in four more years. After all, we're Track Town U.S.A. Any track fans out there?

DOH--I knew you were in Eugene--of course you HAVE to go now and root for my nephew. Some of my family is coming and staying nearby. Yep, he missed a spot on the team then and didnt get to Greece. He has a real shot this time."wherever you go, there you are"

Well, not everybody knows that the trials are in Eugene. Who's your nephew? What event? That's very exciting!
