    Ego or Super Ego?

    Has anyone used either of these two bags for travel, as a personal carry-on item? If so, how much can they fit? Do they fit under the seat in front of you? Can they be used as an all-around-town bag once you reach your destination? Your help and input will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Carlos (a.k.a Peruvian)

    hi carlos,

    my wife used the ego as a personal carry on, and it holds an amazing amount of stuff! it fits under the seat in front of you. whether you want to use it as an all around town bag once you reach your destination depends on how much you want it to be able to carry. i personally prefer something a little smaller as an all around town bag - like the medium or large cafe bag. the ego could certainly hold your essentials, water bottles, and also give you room to carry items you may buy.

    I recently used my (Navy/Wasabi) Ego and my (Navy/Cayenne) small cafe bag as my only luggage for a two night leisure trip, travelling by train.

    No underseat storage, but the Ego just about disappeared in the overhead rack!

    I carried more clothes than I used, plus an iPad.

    I used the SCB for my daily carry.

    I believe the S/Ego would enable me to carry far too much.
