Rolling backpack - with luggage passthrough/slide over handle?

Folks,
Wondering if this product exists - a backpack, that can roll, that has a strap/sleeve that will let it easily and securely slide over the handle of a larger rollaboard. Why? I carry a couple of *very* heavy laptops/equipment in a standard laptop rollaboard with a luggage sleeve, but trying to carry that via shoulder strap (even with fancy ones like Tom Bihn) is painful. Would much prefer a dual shoulder/otb system, i.e. a backpack, but need the rolling support for very long walks.
If you've seen something like this, much appreciated.!

Yes, I was considering one but went another direction. Let me see if I can find it...

Im sorry, I thought it was the High Sierra AT7 but apparently no pass through slot. Maybe thats why I did something else at the time.

Had a 20% coupon so ended up paying about $60 all in for it. It was closeout for like $78 when I ordered it.

For my intra-Europe flights, I check my main bag and just have this.

I also have a Eagle Creek backback with a pass-through, but it doesn't roll. I use that sometimes on shorter trips.

I think that's going to be a hard thing to find because if it rolls, it's going to be larger than a daypack-sized laptop backpack. Usually at least 20" size. Otherwise, the thinking probably goes that you don't need the wheels---it's a backpack. There's probably not enough of a market for something like you want. I've seen smaller rolling messenger bags, but not backpacks.
