The Eagle Creek 2-IN-1 Sling/Backpack is a convertible backpack for ultralight adventures. The 8.5 ounce bag packs into it's very own front pocket, so you can toss it into your larger luggage for later, or throw it in your car in case you decide to head out on a hike after work. The 70D silnylon ripstop fabric is durable and unfolds to create a 16.5L sling pack for museum trips and city jaunts. When you're ready to move onto the trail, it expands to a 18.5L backpack, capable of holding a hydration reservoir. Side mesh pockets hold onto water bottles or an ultralight rain jacket and the pack-in pocket is a handy interior pocket for smaller items, like your wallet and phone. Fast, light, and ready in moments.

lightweight capacious and pretty to boot!Hey! I want to look just a bit spiffy when I go city hiking. We're off to Paris next and this is gonna be a great pack: it really does sling well over one shoulder and feels like a feather when it's empty. I'm just planning on keeping a water bottle and lunch in it and throwing in my sweater when it gets hot. Holds my rain poncho too. I'm not planning on dragging it up a mountain, but it certainly is well-sewn and I expect a lot of good use. I got the 'Carolina' blue - it looks like a sunny day! There's no security pocket, but when you collapse the second strap, there's a little hideaway that no one can get at. Love it!
