Patagonia MLC Wheelie

Roll up the ramp, past the crowd at the baggage carousel and out the door with the Patagonia MLC Wheelie, a slightly more structured version of our utilitarian MLC (Maximum Legal Carry-on). Redesigned this season to include a super robust wheel package and an improved handle for better steering and control, ergonomics and durability. Trimming 1.5 pounds from its overall weight, the MLC Wheelis features a removable toiletry organizer comes with hooks to hang it on a hotel room door. It holds three to five days' worth of clothing in its main compartment, which is equipped with an adjustable mesh laundry pocket and a gusseted sleeve for dirty clothing. A padded internal zipper pocket carries electronics or toiletries, another protects a 15-inch or smaller laptop, while a third provides easy access to travel docs and vital gear. When the going gets bumpy, you can shoulder the load with backpack straps that hide away when not in use. Built with a 1,200-denier recycled polyester exterior and a 200-denier polyester lining; both have a polyurethane coating and DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

MLC Wheelie
Another great Patagonia product. I travelled with this bag to Russia. The bag looks deceptively small but you can fit just about everything into it. Very compact for airplanes and the wheels work great. Just knowing that you have the double lifetime warranty from Altrec and Patagonia makes this product great. Would recommend it to anybody.

Perfect Carry On Rollin' Bag!
Like butta, this thing rolls smoothly and fits perfectly even in the small regional flights overhead compartments. Its small but has a surprising amount of space. Also has some good little compartments. Plus I look like a smart traveler in the airport

the perfect carry on
Patagonia gets it right again! This is a smart looking, streamlined and light weight carry on with lots of room plus great pockets inside!

Great travel bag for short trips
Holds a lot more than you may think. Very convenient size is a guaranteed fit as a carryon bag, yet can hold a good amount for a 4-5 day trip (assuming you are a fairly light packer). Its nice to be able to carry this bag in diferent ways - rollers, backpack, side handle, top handle...Overall a very versatilte and high quality product.
