Eagle Creek Switchback Max ES 22

At first glance you might overlook this bag. What makes this plain looking bag so great?

It's sneaky.

The problem with most carry on luggage is that it's too small for more than a weekend trip. If I'm spending $279 on a bag, I'd better be able to use it on long trips as well as short trips. The Switchback 22 gets around this issue by combining two bags. They took a suitcase that was the largest allowed by every airline, and then attached a good sized backpack to the front of it.

The vain, minimalist nomad

On True East

The tweed jacket was probably surplus to requirements. Especially as I was travelling to the humid climes of South East Asia. In hand luggage.

Fuck it, I’ll wear it on the plane.

Clearly I am not a very good minimalist – I’m too keen on my own appearance. But unnecessary tweed aside, I believe strongly in the principles of travelling light. True freedom comes from being able to move swiftly and unburdened at a moment’s notice, not lugging around a massive bag spilling pants and souvenirs.
