    Litehaul Carry-On is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 71.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Travel & ride I travelled with it once on my 5-day domestic business trip and my experience with it was great. It is lightweight and it works as a backpack as well as shoulder strap. Separate top two compartments make it easy to organise items. I also used it when I ride my bicycle to work. I was looking for a rider bag then I thought I might give this bag a try. It's got a chest strap as well as a waist strap so there was no problem at all riding a bicycle. Lightweight (again) and although it is not waterproof, its material does not seem it gets dirty easily. Ultimately I will get a smaller rider bag but what I want to say is it's versatile.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Way to go to travel light! I bought the Litehaul Carry-On because I was hoping to travel light and use it as my only luggage (apart from a small shoulder bag) for a 10-day trip to Japan in July. It worked really well! There was enough storage space to pack everything I needed, and it was so much better than schlepping around a large suitcase/pack and having to hang around the baggage carousel. As a backpack it's comfortable, and being able to change it up by using the shoulder strap setting is good for old bones. My aim now is to use the Litehaul and the shoulder bag as my only luggage when travelling. A water bottle holder on the outside would have been good though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Minimalist Travel Bought this for an upcoming trip to SE Asia and tested out recently on week long trip. It's perfect for one-bag travel! I packed 3 tees and 2 shorts, chinos, rain jacket, puffy jacket, thin fleece, runners, thongs, small toiletries, laptop, chargers, socks, underwear and a few other things. Packing cubes are pretty much essential to get the most out of the space. The bag could be deeper and have more compression straps as it isn't as deep as some, but this makes it easier to fit under seats and I was still able to stack low profile things like thongs on top of my packing cubes. Overall, a great travel bag that forces you to only take what you need.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Travel light it is the only way to go. My family travelled around Europe for 5 weeks with 7kg each in the Lighthaul and we will continue to travel this way. Just make sure that every 5 days or so you stay somewhere with a washing machine and it will be perfect. We had a good laugh when we saw people lugging around huge cases with 20 pairs of shoes. Pack minimal. We didn't go anywhere fancy as you can tell and we threw out a few tshirts at the end and replaced them with new ones. We were not on a shopping holiday, we can shop here, we were on a sight seeing holiday!! The kids have a slightly different backpack but still Kathmandu. It is not a true backpack for long distance but from hotel to hotel it is fine.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but not great Bought this backpack for my girlfriend as she liked the look of the pack. Unfortunately it came with broken buckle and didn't fit her back properly, so we had to return it back. Plus: nice look (med grey), laptop pocket, bottle pocket on the side, doesn't look bulky on the back, god weight distribution Minus: buckles bit flimsy, not padded well, bit expensive, limited warranty, zippers not very well made Overall, I'm bit disappointed, read all the reviews and was really excited to try it. I personally use Osprey Farpoint 40 and will buy another one for my girlfriend. Might return back as a customer in the future with next generation of the pack.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ideal carry-on bag I've been using 3 days a week for 6 weeks and find it ideal. I like having inside pocket for smalls, separate compartments on the top for toileteries etc and being a front loader, when you unzip the main compartment you have full access and don't have to dig from the top. The straps work well for me to have on my back when I ride my moto to the airport but slip away easily and zipped cover makes for easy in cabin stowing. There is a useful flat pocket for keeping documents unfolded

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st and only travel backpack I need This is such a clever design. After looking for months on end for the perfect day pack, Kathmandu releases the new version lite haul. Perfect has everything I need and can fit for up to three days and the packing cells work a treat with it. About to embark on a round the world trip for a year or 2 and am really happy I'm taking this daypack as well as the north face duffel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxurious Finally invested in my litehaul carry-on !! Have been eying of for months, but finally took the dive and went all out ! No Regrets . Fits perfectly to my back , easy to pack and looks lovely. Had a go at packing and all my gear fits a dream , even packed a small travel globe :) Couldnt resist matching it with the litehaul plus 1 and transit pocket( a great purse / handbag which I plan to buy a thicker strap for to be extra safe )
