For a backpack that can suit all your carrying needs, grab the 19.3" Hybrid Backpack from Made By Design™. This unique backpack serves as both a traditional backpack and a suitcase. Zip open the front to reveal an open area with smaller pockets like a regular backpack, or zip open the middle to reveal three large storage pockets that are perfect for organizing socks, toiletries and more when you travel. With adjustable straps, a top handle and a side handle, this suitcase backpack can be comfortably carried, no matter what you're using it for.
This backpack is like a suitcase. It folds all the way open. I used it as my "personal item" when flying on and airline that charges extra for a carry-on bag. I was able to fit enough clothes into this bag for the weekend. You could also use this for short trips and not have to worry about carrying a small suitcase or duffle bag. The back pack straps make this so easy to carry. The zippers are very sturdy and there are also extra exterior zipper pockets. The only thing that this backpack does not have is an exterior side pocket for a water bottle.
I purchased this backpack for my wife in preparation for our 2 week honeymoon to Europe this summer so we could travel carry-on only (makes traveling so much easier when you have less gear to worry about.) On the positive side of things, this is a sleek, fairly roomy backpack, and if you know how to pack efficiently in the large main compartment, you'll have more than enough room for 4-5 days worth of clothes, toiletries, an extra pair or two of shoes, and basic travel accessories. The backpack also looks very nice, and won't draw attention to yourself. Now for the negative...unfortunately, about 2/3rd of the way through our honeymoon, seams began to rip around the main compartment and the cinch straps on the backpack. The backpack was full, but not overly stuffed. I was pretty nervous about the backpack holding out through our return trip back to the states because of the ripping seams. This bag absolutely has a place for traveling for shorter duration trips where you can afford to pack a little less, but I would think twice about this bag if you plan on traveling only using a carry on bag for a longer duration trip and plan to bring back souvenirs.

The bag seems to be what I expected, good design, the format I wanted... Two downsides are that the zippers are not fantastic quality and don't lock down when the bag is closed, and the part against the back could use more breathable mesh or something... It is very hot when wearing for any length of time
This bag is really great for carry-on only travelers. I’m able to fit a weeks worth of clothes plus two pair of shoes in the large main compartment, along with my toiletries and makeup in the inside zippered pockets. The large front pocket has a ton of space for “extra” items such as chargers, iPad, notebook, etc. The laptop pocket on the back is padded and very secure, and the small zippered pocket on the front is the perfect place for travel documents and IDs or passports. I love that I can slip it over the handle of my rolling luggage so I don’t have to carry it through the airport because it is rather large. Because of the size, it tends to also get very heavy quickly. I’m 5’3” and it’s large on me, but I would still recommend it.
I really wanted to like this bag, but it is way too big for my needs. It has a laptop padded section. The main compartment opens to fold completely flat which is handy. That section even has a plastic section for wet items. The front pocket has pouches for small electronics and office supplies. It would be great for travel if not for the size.
This is a fabulous backpack for traveling! I love the design of this. I've never seen a 'hybrid' before and really like it. Lots of room and pockets to keep everything neat and in place. The little pocket on the front is perfect for items that need quick retrieval. The straps are very comfortable to use. The padding on the back is nice, also. Very well made. So happy with this!!! I plan on getting everyone in the family one for our trips this summer.
This is a GREAT traveling backpack - I headed on a long weekend, and put my toiletries in it. Everything stayed nice and organized, and was perfect for what I needed. It IS slightly more bulky than my normal backpack that I tote to work; I take public transit, so every inch of space matters. That being said, it is something I could get used to over time.
