Outside magazine awarded this travel pack “gear of the year” for 2007. With it larger daypack and improved suspension, the Switchback Max ES is better than ever. Find out why people are ranting and raving about the Switchback Max ES.

The Switchback Max ES is one of the few travel packs with a full size day pack. Many travel packs seem to throw on daypacks as an afterthought. They tend to be small and not as useful on demanding outings. But not the Switchback Max, this day pack is as good as they come.




The Switchback Max ES meets airline carry on requirements when the day pack is removed. The pack also has some nice protection features. There are some hard core corner cards on parts of the pack that take a beating. There are also wheel covers that protect the wheels from getting beet up by stairs and baggage handlers. In addition, if anything ever happens to your Switchback Max ES, Eagle Creek will fix it free of charge.
