Reply from firstname.lastname@example.org : "Unfortunately we will not be able to process further as it is a physical damage which doesn’t covers under warranty."
Well yes of course, it's a physical damage which occurred because your useless product COULD NOT WITHSTAND even half a day of regular use.
What good is the warranty then?
Someone from senior management should go through this and realise what a scam AmazonBasics is at the moment!
- Excellent design with large storage capacity and ample pockets/dividers for organization
- Comfortable shoulder straps and back cushioning
- Comes with shoulder strap, waist strap, sternum strap, backpack straps (can be tucked away), and two handles to allow multiple methods of easy-carrying
- Includes internal padded laptop storage compartment placed nearest the back (ideal design for weight distribution)
- Includes zippered expandable storage (unzip to expand the bag slightly, or keep zipped to keep the bag more compact)
- Carry-on size!
- DOES NOT include hide-away water bottle compartment or key ring clip, as described on the listing
- Some loose threading here and there, and minor quality issues
My wife and I travel frequently (we have Southwest Companion Fly Free) on weekend trips across the state (often 3-4 night trips). I have been somewhat addicted to finding the best carry-on size travel bag/backpack. A few months ago, I purchased the eBags eTech 2.0 Weekender Travel backpack for my wife and myself, and I recently purchased the AmazonBasics backpack as well for my most recent two trips to see how they compared. Here are some of my notable comparisons:
**DESIGN & ORGANIZATION**
If I am not mistaken, eBags 2.0 started selling on Amazon towards the end of 2012 and has only had minor revisions since then. The design focuses on maximizing the amount you can carry within a bag that still fits most standard "carry-on" size specifications (which is usually 9x22x14). It utilizes hide-away backpack straps (they tuck away into a zippered compartment), a handle on the horizontal and vertical side of the bag, and a suit-case style main compartment and zipper opening for easy access. This has been a winning combination, and I have found this to be one of the most efficient designs for easy travel and maximum storage (better than clam-style zippered opening backpacks, in my opinion). With the use of packing cubes, my wife and I easily pack for 4 to even 5 night trips with both backpacks. In the attached picture showing the backpack filled, I easily packed two medium-sized packing cubes carrying 2 pants, 3 shorts, 1 belt, 6 t shirts, 2 button shirts, and 2 long sleeve shirts; one small packing cube carrying 6 socks, 6 underwear; one pair of shoes; toiletry bag; lightweight jacket in the mesh compartment on the lid; laptop w/ charger and documents; chargers; sunglasses; Kindle; battery pack; and earbuds. With that said, AmazonBasics released this backpack in September 2016, and clearly copied/mimicked almost the exact design of the eBags 2.0 in nearly every respect (AmazonBasics has all the features described directly above as well).
The notable differences is that the AmazonBasics backpack has a dedicated zippered laptop storage compartment placed right on the back (best design for weight distribution because it keeps the weight closest to your body), zippered expandable storage option (unzip to expand the dimension of the main compartment by 10%, or leaved zipped to keep the backpack more compact; refer to attached picture), and has clips that allow for shoulder strap carry. If you want to carry a laptop in the eBags, you either have to place it in the front zippered organization compartment or in the main storage compartment (both are not the most ideal since weight is either distributed on the furthest point away from your body, making it feel heavier; or if in the main compartment, it's a pain to open it up and remove it for Airport Security). However, the eBags has a slightly better designed front storage area that utilizes: elastic cinches on its pockets (when travelling, it keeps the contents placed in these pockets in place; while with the AmazonBasics bag, I noticed that my items would easily slide out of the pockets during travel), a larger variety of pockets, and a key clip (the listing claims AmazonBasics backpack has a key clip, but it definitely does not). Both backpacks utilized a zippered mesh compartment located on the lid-side of the main compartment, but if you look at the included pictures, eBags has it extend the full length to maximize the size, whereas AmazonBasics for some odd reason has it cut off nearly 5 inches short of the full length. I see no point in why AmazonBasics decided to do that because it's just lost space.
Draw. AmazonBasics has the well-designed padded laptop compartment, zippered expandable storage option, and shoulder strap capabilities, but eBags has the better designed front zippered organization compartment. Subjectively, I prefer the AmazonBasics backpack because it is important for me to carry my laptop with me and have the option to use a shoulder strap, while my wife prefers the eBags because she prefers the better-designed front zippered organization compartment and is fine always using the backpack straps.
**WEIGHT AND COMFORT**
AmazonBasics backpack weighs slightly over 3 lbs, while the eBags weighs slightly over 2 lbs. Honestly, the difference in weight is quite minimal when the backpack is actually worn, and I did not notice that the AmazonBasics bag was slightly heavier.
With respect to comfort, the AmazonBasics backpack has slightly more cushioning in the backpack straps, and it adds cushioning along the entire length of the bag that rests on your back. The eBags backpack does not provide any real cushioning for your back, and while the shoulder straps are still comfortable, it has slightly less cushioning. However, the eBags has much more cushioned and well-designed side handles (the handles on the vertical and horizontal sides of the bag). eBags uses elastic under each handles to always pull the side handles closer to the bag (refer to attached pictures), and pads it with a soft neoprene. AmazonBasics uses the same nylon covering the entire bag over its handles, and you can feel the plastic material of the handles beneath. Both backpacks have adjustable sternum straps, and simple nylon straps that can be attached to the bottom to be used as waist straps.
AmazonBasics slightly edges out eBags here. With the slightly more cushioned/padded backpack straps, and cushioning along the length of the portion of the bag the rests on your back, the AmazonBasics backpack is slightly more comfortable to wear. The eBags has better designed and more cushioned side handles, but ultimately these travel backpacks are made to be worn as backpacks, not primarily carried by the side handles.
AmazonBasics describes the material used as "durable polyester", while eBags states that the material used as "420D & 1680D Nylon". Nylon is generally a stronger & more durable material than polyester, and the 420D & 1680D Nylon rated materials used by eBags is highly rated/reviewed for its quality and durability. Based on feel and appearance, the Nylon material on the eBags backpack is of higher quality than AmazonBasics.
Additionally, eBags uses higher quality components and materials on many of the finer details of the backpack, such as: Clips that attach the bottom shoulder straps to the backpack (has a cleverly designed release mechanism outside of the clipped area to allow for quick release); seams on the shoulder straps are sealed & hidden (AmazonBasics uses the simpler method of placing a separate piece of material that is stitched over; refer to picture of the shoulder straps); YKK zippers with a lifetime warranty (YKK are like the gold-standard for zippers; AmazonBasics uses strong & quality zippers, but not quite as nice as YKK); and quality side handles with neoprene padding and elastic pull-back mechanism (AmazonBasics wraps its side handles in the same polyester used for the rest of the bag, and the hard plastic of the handle can be felt). Lastly, I noticed that the AmazonBasics backpack had a few loose threads here and there, and somewhat sloppier stitching/finishing (refer to attached picture).
eBags wins here when it comes to quality materials and craftsmanship.
eBags is very reasonably priced at $99.99 (occasionally goes on sale too) for the quality & craftsmanship that you get with the bag. eBags also has an excellent reputation for customer service and warranty. The AmazonBasics backpack currently retails for $49.99, which is a steal.
AmazonBasics takes the cake when it comes to value. eBags backpack is well-priced and uses some higher quality materials & craftsmanship, but the AmazonBasics backpack is literally 1/2 of the retail price. eBags is a great price at $99.99, but AmazonBasics is a steal at $49.99.
Both backpacks are incredibly impressive with respect to design, organization, comfort, quality, and value. You honestly cannot go wrong with either backpack, and both are excellent choices for your carry-on travel bag needs. Each backpack has slight pros/cons as compared to the other, and I wish I could combine some aspects of both to create the perfect combination. If you want slightly higher quality materials, durability, craftsmanship, and a better designed front storage compartment–and you do not mind not having a shoulder strap-carry option or a dedicated laptop storage compartment near your back–then eBags is a great overall choice for you. But if you want slightly more comfortable shoulder straps & back-cushioning, shoulder strap-carry option, dedicated laptop storage compartment near your back, zippered expandable storage option, and an unbeatable price; then AmazonBasics will be the travel backpack for you. To prove my point: my wife opted to keep the eBags because she liked the overall quality more, thought it was plenty comfortable, and did not mind that it lacked a dedicated laptop storage compartment near the back. I opted to go with the AmazonBasics backpack because I like having the option to carry the backpack on a shoulder strap, and I love having a dedicated laptop storage option near the back.
**For the attached pictures, the olive backpack is the eBags and the black backpack is the AmazonBasics. I will update this review after my wife and I travel some more!
> 1st Single-Zipper is good enough to toss in your wallet, passport, bills, etc.
> 2nd Double-Zipper has a small organiser with two pockets, two pen-holders and two mesh-pockets. > The flap has a sleeve to slip in a magazine. This section can easily house newspapers, magazines, phones and a tablet (with a protective case).
> 3rd Double-Zipper is the main compartment for clothes. It is deep enough for a few garments and comes with a mesh pocket (zipped) as well as straps for keeping everything in place.
> 4th Single-Zipper can house a 15" Laptop. Perhaps a 17" once would also fit, but I'm not so sure.
> The 5th Single-Zipper can tuck away the shoulder straps when you don't need them.
> Comes with a handle on the side and one on top.
> Has an expander and clasps/buckles to keep everything snug and in place.
> Quality is very good for the price; looks good too.
> Weighs 260 grams; so it’s good for the 7KG restriction on Cabin Bags in Aircraft.
Diese Plastikteile sind Mist, Amazon. Bitte nachbessern!
Positives: Nice size, lots of pocket and features, lots of straps and handles to hold, great padding on the shoulder straps, seems to be good quality with strong reliable zips, and a good price. They seem to have taken notes from all other brands and made the perfect bag. Overall I'm happy with my purchase
Negatives: Lots of pockets, which is both a positive and a negative. This is because you can fill the main big inside compartment and then think 'great! now I can put things in the inside pocket on the lid, the front pocket, and the back pocket/laptop storage part'. BUT when you check you realise the bag is already at the depth limit for airlines with these pockets empty and just the inside compartment completely full. Luckily it's only an inch or 2 and being a material bag you could absolutely force it into the bag size checker at the airport if you had to (plus if you're carrying it on your shoulder of back you're unlikely to be asked to check you bag first). I just used the front pocket for paper and documents in the end as if I put anything else in it would be too thick.
Overall I'd still highly recommend this bag. Great for taking on planes as a carry-on. But it just means that you have to pack carefully and not stuff it full to the very top.
you can carry clothes for 5-6 days
1 . you will not feel heavy even fully stuffed , use the support belts provided
2 . outer material seems good for this price
3 . u can carry it as backpack or as suit case as per u r wish
4 . u can even carry your laptop in this bag but i prefer with sleeves , separate space provided at back
1 . zipper quality is good but not sure it will last long
2 . strap hooks is small and light dont know it will carry full weight for long time , straps inside suit case is very small and thin
3 . no zip lock except main compartment
4 . no rain cover provided , will be so happy if it was provided
5 . no water bottle holder
Unless you are going for trekking , this bags suit you in all condition
just buy it if you are normal traveller
Once I've got to the hotel and dropped my stuff off, I then use the compression straps to cinch the rucksack down and make the bag look more like a regular laptop bag.
Quality wise this seems fine. It's not the most high end product, but for occasional use it'll be ok.
Soy de estatura bajita y me queda un poco grande más grande que como se muestra en la imagen. Sin embargo, es justo lo que buscaba para mis viajes.
I travel a lot, and I really wanted to love this bag. It’s a bit bulky, but spacious and great for keeping things organized, plenty of room for a minimal traveler that only packs a carry-on. However, the metal backpack strap connection broke off at the airport today (the first time I’ve ever used the bag), so I can’t clip the strap in to use it. I’m now in Mexico for 2 months with a broken bag that I’ll need to replace, with no way to return it to Amazon for a refund. The fact that this bag can be used as a backpack was the biggest selling feature to me, so I wouldn’t recommend to anyone that’s planning to depend on it for that.
As a note, I didn’t jam pack the bag full of heavy items — just my laptop and clothing!
The only drawback is that the bag doesn’t come with a customised rain cover. Considering that the price is nearly 2k, they should’ve provided a rain cover with it as the size and shape of the sack is different.
Geliefert wurde die Tasche in einem Plastik Sack, was aber voll kommen ausreicht.
Das Material und die Reißverschlüsse machen einen doch unerwarteten guten Eindruck.
Die Abmessungen sind wie auf den Bildern zu sehen für das Handgepäck passend geeignet. Die Aufteilung der Fächer ist wie in der Beschreibung beschrieben.
Folgendes hatte ich bei dem letzten Trip in der Tasche: zwei lange Jeans Hosen, 4 boxer shorts, vier Paar Socken, vier t-shirts so wie zwei sweat Jacken. Außerdem eine kleine Kulturtasche so wie ein Beutel Flüssigkeiten. Ist doch erstaunlich was in die Tasche rein passt. Im Notfall kann die Tasche auch noch per Reißverschluss um zehn Prozent erweitert werden. Ob man dann noch durch die Kontrolle kommt kann ich nicht sagen. Bei meinem Trip hätte es wahrscheinlich geklappt.
Tragen kann man die Tasche am Griff, per Schultergurt oder auf dem Rücken. Hier findet sich auf für mich der einzige Schwachpunkt. Die Haken machen keinen wertigen Eindruck. Als ich die Tasche einmal hoch heben wollte sprang dieser kleiner Metall Bügel aus dem Haken. Glücklicherweise habe ich ihn fallen hören und auch wieder gefunden. Konnte ihn wieder einsetzen. Wie lang die Haken und die Tasche halten wird sich zeigen. Für den Preis bin ich aber positiv überrascht. Würde die Tasche wider kaufen.

Anteriormente compré una Cabin Zero por el doble del precio y sin lugar a dudas la de Amazon es mucho mejor.
