Lately I've been reading a bit on this forum about one baggin it and I really liked Red oxx, bihn, etc. I wasn't sure about the prices. I then found the Patagonia MLC and really liked it but again was holding off for some reason. Well today noticed the price on seaweed color only and was very excited

That is a very nice bag! I ordered the MLC Wheelie in Seaweed on sale for $114. It also looks like a great carry-on wheelie but it might be too small. I figured since Patagonia ships for free it was worth ordering. If I don't find it useful it can always be retured to a store.

I am a big fan of my Patagonia MLC from 2006. It has been with me on trips to Europe and multiple trips to Asia and around North America. I think they've added some nicer features, like better straps in the new versions. This version is, however, smaller than the one older versions.
I admit I was tempted by this one. I have the Osprey Porter, but this one looked good too.
But I really wish I'd caught the MLC Wheelie sale a few months ago (for a few $$ more). There are so many times that I still prefer a wheelie. The downside for any 'backpack' style case out there is the lack of a proper hipbelt. It's understandable, but it means the weight is on my shoulders (not good) instead of on my hips (good).
