Eagle Creek Lync System International Carry-On Review: A Wheeled Carry-On That Folds Flat

Eagle Creek Lync System International Carry-On does it all—converts from wheeled suitcase to backpack, and folds flat when not in use.

Eagle Creek Lync System International Carry-On Review:

Price and Where to Buy: The Lync System International Carry-On is available on Eagle Creek’s website for $255.

How Eagle Creek’s Lync System International Carry-On Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Need a backpack and a rolling suitcase, but don’t have room to store either at home? Eagle Creek’s Lync System International Carry-On is for you. This bag starts out in its own stuff sack, which is small and flat enough to be stored in a dresser drawer or cabinet. With a few quick steps, it can be easily assembled into a full rolling suitcase, or taken off the frame/wheels and used as a backpack.
  • Value: 8/10. Since you’re getting both a backpack and a rolling suitcase, this isn’t a bad price.
  • Portability: 10/10. When used with the frame and wheels as a suitcase, the bag is only 4 lbs 6 ounces. When used as a backpack without the frame, it weighs just under two pounds.
  • Durability: 10/10. Although super-lightweight, the aluminum frame and nylon materials that make up this bag are very durable, and are covered by Eagle Creek’s lifetime “No Matter What” warranty.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. Both the suitcase and backpack look great, and being able to store your suitcase under your bed or in a drawer is very cool!

Final Verdict: Short on space/luggage weight restrictions, but need options when it comes to carrying your stuff? The Eagle Creek Lync System International Carry-On is your answer.
