I'm considering purchasing the Appenzell day bag as a carryon/1-2 day travel bag. Unfortunately, all the reviews I've seen are from sites that used to sell RS bags, and refer to a previous model. I'd like to be able to use it as an underseat bag, but would most likely throw it in the overhead if packed full.
The convertible backpack looks a bit larger than what I'd like for this purpose, but may consider it depending on durability. From what I'm seeing, these bags seem to be a little "light" in terms of their material, and I need bags that hold up over time. Any comments appreciated!
