Totin' Around: Patagonia MLC Travel Bag

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, many of us are gearing up for the Biggest Traveling Week of the Year. For some of us, traveling can be a bit intense with the cramped seats, hours of sitting on a plane or in an airport...and then there's the panic when the baggage carousel comes around and there's a million black rolling suitcases and none of them are yours. Which is why we decided to go out and find ourselves a great carry-on bag that's both roomy but still within regulation size: the Patagonia MLC travel bag. This handy suitcase can hold up to five days worth of clothing (within reason, that is--for those of you who pack heavy, cut that number in half. Or more), and it comes with either a shoulder strap that can clip off, or backpack style straps that zip up easily if you opt not to use them. There's also a handy compartment that separates your clothes (ie dirty vs clean; or for the outdoorsy types, "town garb from climbing gear"). And while it doesn't have built-in padding for laptops, it's big enough to fit a 17" in a soft case. Available at Patagonia for $148. Anyone else have any great carry-on bags that have withstood the travel test?
