Overland Equipment Whitney Bag Review

Price and Where to Buy Overland Equipment Whitney Bag: $63 to $66 on Amazon.com

Pros: The Whitney Bag is roomy without feeling oversized. It has great details like a padded electronics sleeve, two external side pockets (one fleece-lined) for water bottles or other quick-access items, a detachable toiletries pouch, a reusable shopping tote, a detachable key clip, and a multitude of pockets. Best of all, it converts convincingly from a backpack to a purse. The backpack straps are comfortable and can be tucked discreetly into a flap, transforming the bag into an attractive shoulder tote.

Cons: The shoulder strap doesn’t extend long enough to be worn cross body.  

How Overland Equipment Whitney Bag Rates

  • Usefulness: 10/10. It’s packed with features that serve travelers well.
  • Value: 10/10. There are plenty of bags that offer various combinations of utility, but this is one of the best all-around travel bags we’ve ever tested. The only thing it can’t be is an evening clutch; but with the backpack straps tucked away, it’s still nice enough for a night out.
  • Durability: 10/10. After months of hard use as a travel bag and a diaper bag, it still isn’t showing any signs of weakening or wear.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. It’s hard to find a bag that is useful, adaptable, and attractive, but the Whitney pulls it off.

Final Verdict: This is just about the perfect travel bag, adapting easily to most travel scenarios. A backpack when you need it, a shoulder bag when you don’t, it balances back health and utility with style.
