As practical as a good map, as adaptable as a well-seasoned traveler and as useful as a concierge in an unknown city, our much-loved M.L.C.® (Maximum Legal Carry-On) may well be the most versatile travel bag you’ll ever stuff into an overhead bin. This soft-sided carry-on bag holds up to five days' worth of clothes, opens like a book for easy packing, yet meets airline carry-on size requirements so you can get in and out as fast as possible. An internal, padded laptop sleeve holds most 17-inch laptops and doubles as a clothing organizer. Hidden, ergonomic shoulder straps quickly convert the M.L.C to a backpack for walking through crowds or riding a motorcycle taxi. The padded shoulder strap disperses weight, and top and side handles allow you to carry it like a briefcase. External zippered pockets provide easy access to travel documents, a wallet and cell phone. An internal floating divider inside the main compartment separates clean clothes from dirty. Elegant and easy to use, the MLC® and Freewheeler luggage are made with robust 1,200-denier 100% recycled polyester. The lining is made with 200-denier 100% polyester, and all fabrics are polyurethane coated and have a Deluge® DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish.


  • Main compartment opens like a book for easy packing, access and organization; compression pocket secures contents; secondary zippered sleeve pocket separates dirty clothes or shoes; separate padded pocket stores a laptop or works well as a clothing organizer
  • Easy-access pockets for tickets, passport and office supplies; padded back panel holds shoulder straps and protects your back
  • Three carrying options: Backpack with ergonomic shoulder straps that tuck neatly into a zippered compartment; Shoulder bag with comfortable split-shoulder strap that slides over carry handle when not in use; Briefcase with two carry handles
