Euro Flight Bag

For those of you who have purchased the Euro Flight Bag, is the "Rick Steves" name on the front? The photos on its webpage don't show any name but some "other" photos do. I don't know which are the most recent.

It's in script on the handle, so it's fairly inconspicuous. Certainly no more conspicuous than all the other bags that have their logo or name on them. I didn't even know it was there until someone on this forum mentioned they did not like it.

Thanks. I thought they had moved the logo to the handle of a few bags but wanted to make sure.

The name is on the front of my Euro Flight bag, on the lower right hand quadrant, as you look at it. Below the zipper. But I bought mine at least 4 or 5 years ago.

Jane, I just bought mine in early 2022 so I'm assuming they moved it. :) I do like the bag a lot - it holds a TON of stuff considering how compact it looks. And everything fits in there nice and snug.

Some people have complained that when you open it on board, things have a tendency to fall out but I put clothes in packing cubes in there so have not had that problem.

I, too, love my Euro bag. It is always with me on board. I usually have my travel pillow stuffed in top & that prevents things from falling out. I get a change of clothes, guidebooks, meds, liquids bag, electronics, travel pillow, pen, post it notes, travel folders, kindle and on and on in there. I stuff my travel purse in, too, when I board if I am also bringing along my 21" roll-aboard.

Mine is on the handle as well, very unobtrusive. I got it ‘free’ back in the days when you got RS money to spend when you signed up for a tour. I never liked it until I started using packing cubes and now I find it perfect for this one place we travel to by car fairly often and I’m really glad I have it.

The logo for my bag is located on the handle. I used a seam ripper and removed his name.

I love the Euro Flight bag and used it as my personal bag on my last Rick Steves tour!

Geez, Robin, I hope Rick never finds out you unsewed his name off your bag! You'll never get onto another tour! ;-)

Mine is on the handle, like Mardee's, easily concealed if you carry it by hand. And I got green so it's less conspicuous (and because I like green). I have complained about the name and face all over his products, but I guess brand names are everywhere so I'd better just chill. It is a great bag with many uses besides just flights. So go ahead and get one, Frank. (Maybe they should come with a seam ripper....)

My bag has the name on the front flap, bought about 5 years ago. I really like it, just the right size for my essentials and coming home I can stuff it full of goodies. I place my semi-rigid plastic zipped folder that holds documents upright at the front and that neatly contains things from falling out due to the low front edge.
