This isn't really a pack, but it is so good that I had to let people know. Like its name indicates, it is mainly a carry-on bag, and has a very good shoulder strap. It does have hidden pack shoulder straps and a hip belt. This can all be hidden so they are not a problem.
I went away this summer for two months and it carried ALL my regular clothes. (I happily discovered this when I did laundry.) It has internal ladder-lock straps that are impossible to break. I literally yanked on them as hard as i could. This bag holds an incredible amount of stuff, and doesn't have big 'steal-me' Patagonia logos on it. Very nice piece, good for when you have to come down the mountain and get domestic. Useable for crossover also, or when in a jam. Get it.
