Hey guys... I'm going on a 3 week trip in europe and am trying to decide on a pack that will fit within the 22 x 17 x 9 inch carry-on limits of easyjet. I'm going to be traveling by bus or plane, and the most traveling I'll be doing while wearing the pack will be walking around the airport and up to 5 hours (max) of walking around the city before I can check into my hostel.  

Right now I'm considering the Osprey Porter 46 and the Rick Steves Convertible Carry-On, any suggestions or ideas?

Zero experience, but just to give you more to look at :) MEC in Canada makes nice-looking convertible suitcase/backpacks, some of them with removable daypacks. Happy travels!

if the packs you are talking about are large enough, try them on and go for it.  i would need more space than you.  Also, I have found that most 60-65 liter backpacks will fit in an overhead and that they are much easier/more comfortable to carry than the backpack/luggage hybrids.

I carried on a 65 L pack and just cinched it down the best I could. I changed planes several times and never had an issue at all.
