Bought this for my teen son and it is perfect. We were able to easily fit plenty of winter clothes for a four-day trip inside - including scarves, gloves, etc. and toiletries. So - although it is small enough to carry on a plane, it is very roomy and the wheels/handle/shoulder straps take up very little room. ............ One complaint - the blue is NOT a royal blue as pictured. It is a very VERY dark Navy. I would extrapolate from that observation that the red is probably maroon and the green is probably forest green. ............. This is very well made - Much better than the Samsonite luggage I've always purchased. The zippers are extremely heavy duty, sewn in very well. Overall, I'm just very impressed. ............. This was such a great deal off of list price and I liked the backpack on the front. Son was able to pack it full of snacks, games, etc for a 14 hour bus trip - backpack was smaller than I expected, being accustomed to full-sized school backpacks, but it is plenty for packing stuff to do on a trip. ........... I would definitely purchase this luggage again and look forward to swiping it from my son for MY next trip! :-)
I have used the calpak once so far and plan in using it for a trip to Europe. I like it except the zipper on the carry-on part does not go all the way around, so it is hard to keep it open. The back pack zips on and off easily. Similarly, the zipper on the backpack is short, going around only half the way making access more difficult. The whole unit is slightly smaller than expected with room being taken to accommodate for straps and handles. I like the padded small handles and the wheels are big and sturdy.
I use this bag 2-3 times per week. It held up great for the first 7 months of it's life. The side seam has now come apart, exposing the plastic shell. I've read that it has year-long warranty but have been unsuccessful getting a response on it. This is a good bag though for the price and does have some nice features, great for an occasional traveler. It clearly is just not a good option for someone who uses it with high frequency.
Awesome two-fer set...one holds all I need for entire trip (14 days) to Ireland; England; and Paris...small one holds daily trip items as we explore each region...I bought two green ones...'blinged' mine out a bit...
Unlike most combo rollaround/backpack's this one has a bar across the bottom which keeps the bag from touching the ground & getting filthy or wet, plus it keeps it from falling over so long as the backpack isn't packed too top-heavy. The fabric is thicker and looks nicer than cheaper bags I've had, plus it has a slight metallic sheen (I got the olive color) which gives it a real nice classy look. A hard plastic wall helps prevent crushing when bags have to be stacked in the belly of smaller aircraft that don't have large enough overhead bins. To & from airports I put all my important stuff like keys, coins, docs, camera, iPhone cables, iPad, in the backpack and zip it onto the rollaround bag. Waiting at the gate I can easily access my stuff yet keep both bags zipped together. When it's time to board I unzip the backpack and sling it over my shoulder, then wheel the rollaround & stuff it top handle-first into the overhead bin; fits perfectly everytime. The backpack fits under the front seat and I can reach everything I during flight. I'm glad I spent the extra bucks, this is an awesome bag.

I love the design. Detachable backpack is great. When I opened the main compartment, it seemed small compared to my other carry-on roller bags but the measurements are accurate. It is soft enough to expand, too. The zipper doesn't allow it to stay open very well when packing but it's not a big deal to me. I have packed everything in it that I need for a week trip, but I haven't travelled with it yet to know how it holds up. I think it will be great.

Is the green really olive green or is it forest green as one of the reviewers mentioned. Would this be considered one item to take on a plane so could take a purse as well, or would it be considered the two pieces allowed on a plane.keepinshape on Apr 18, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello keepinshape, It is more of a brighter olive shade. Whether it would be considered one item to take on a plane would depend on the regulation of the airline you're flying with. We encourage you to check with your airline. Thanks for shopping with us.
