"I just wanted you to know I've had my Red Venture pack since 1987. I don't hike or camp, but at the time I did travel. It was great being able to use it as a backpack at the airport leaving my hands free. I could clip a smaller carry-on pack to the bottom clips. Just before getting to the counter I'd convert it to suitcase mode and it became checked luggage. ....... It could hold a weeks worth of clothing and the other misc stuff you want once you get to the hotel. It has been checked luggage on trips to England, Amsterdam, and air travel inside the US. ....... I think this has been one of the best purchases ever. I still have and use it when I do travel." Rick Shetron, Troy, NY
