    Comments about Outdoor Products Campmor Essential Carry-On:

    Bought original bag 8 years ago for each family member for overseas travel. These are the only bags we use!!! Even when stuffed full, it will fit in overhead bin on planes. Never need to check bag. Eight years later there is no sign of wear. Buying this current one as a gift for someone. Looks exactly the same. I recommend this bag to my friends and family.

    Comments about Outdoor Products Campmor Essential Carry-On:

    Going to alaska ..part of the trip is a plane flight on which we can only take a 25 pound bag ..I am putting in it: hiking/running shoes, light sandals, pants, rain pants, capris, long underwear, four sets of tops and bottoms of undies, three shirts long sleeve, two short sleeve, two vests, four socks, two hats, gloves, toiletries, ..
    Unstructured bag but this allows for the weight to be your stuff. Packing it tight creates the structure, no poundage wasted on the structure of the bag

    Good honest travel pack

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Easy to pack
    • Good Carry-on Size
    • Light Weight
    • No frills

    Cons

    • Logo Stands Out Too Much
    • Logo too large
    • Nylon Snap Broken

    Best Uses

    • Air travel
    • Carry-on

    Comments about Outdoor Products Campmor Essential Carry-On:

    Great value, well constructed even though the nylon swivel snap was broken. Used a black magic marker to darken the logo. It is now grayish, couldn't do anything about the size of the logo, if it had been smaller logo, I would have just left it alone. I even considered using an iron or heat gun to remove it. The bag itself I am happy with the price paid, the utility of the bag. I would buy another in the future.

    Comments about Outdoor Products Campmor Essential Carry-On:

    Bought the bag for a recent 5 day trip to use as a carry on for flight. Love that the bag is lightweight but still able to fit a lot of stuff. I also liked the two different carrying options. The bag has no structure and is flimsy, although that can be a plus if you're the type that likes to overpack and stuff your bags. I was looking at other similar bags that were $150+, but couldn't justify the purchase since I'm not a frequent traveler. Even if this bag breaks after a couple years, I can buy four more for the price of one of the more expensive bags. For this price, it's hard to beat this product in terms of value and usability.

          Excellent bag, excellent price

          By Jen

          from NY

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          Best Uses

          • Carry-on
          • Cruise
          • Weekend trip

          Comments about Outdoor Products Campmor Essential Carry-On:

          I bought 2 of these bags in preparation for a cruise, as I will have to carry my bag around for a bit at the beginning and I did not want to have lug around a rolling carry-on on a ship. I have not yet used it on the cruise, but we recently used them as carry-ons for a flight. They worked fantastically. I used cubes for my clothes to help give the bag some shape. Many pockets available for extras, although they do increase the width of the bag (not sure if fully used if it would fit in overhead compartment).

          I do not like the large logo and will probably cover it up.

          I used the bag mostly with the shoulder strap, although I have some concerns about the bag pulling at the points where the strap connects. Husband held it by the handles. Hope that the bag will not rip at any seams. Have not tried it as a backpack yet, but like the availability to do so.

          As with most unstructured bags, if it was not reasonably full, it would have kind of caved in when using it with the shoulder strap.

          In one of the exterior pockets, the zipper kept getting a bit stuck on the inside lining to separate the smaller compartments inside. I do have concerns that the lining will rip unless I am careful with the zipper.

          The bag was overall comfortable to carry and I expect that it will fit my needs excellently on a cruise and in the future. With this bag, I can't imagine using my rolling carry-on again.

          With the price, I could not go wrong.

                  The light weight, the back pack straps, conformance to carry on rules, and the black nylon construction make the bag a travel value.

                        Wonderful size and soft sided means we can stuff it full or go lighter and squash it. With 6 in our family, that's essential.

                            The Outdoor Products Campmor Essential Carry-On is made with urethane coated material, however the seams and the zipper would leak water so it is water resistant not waterproof.

                          I'm not a big fan of logos on any of my belongings. I can't tell from this photo; is the logo on the material of the bag itself or is it on a separate piece of fabric? In short: Could this logo be removed without damaging the integrity of the bag?

                            The Campmor Essential Carry-On has the Campmor logo imprinted onto the fabric. It cannot be removed with damaging the Carry-On.

                            One of the reviewers had a great suggestion - to put reflective tape over the logo. Or maybe thick black tape, like electrical tape? It's hilarious that they put this gigantic logo on the bag. It looks so stupid, when a discreet little logo would have been fine. Oh well. Anyway, try taping it up.

                            What I do is black out the logo using a permanent black marker. This should not effect the material in any way. I hope this helps

                          Hi there, I was wondering if the Campmor Essential Carry-On came with the big bright (not so pretty) white logo of "Campmor" on front. I've come across images online with a more discrete looking logo in the bottom right corner, so I'm not sure how this bag is going to look like. If possible, I'd like the prettier more discrete logo.
