eBags TLS Mother Lode Weekender Convertible Backpack

Welcome to the review of the eBags TLS Mother Lode Weekender Convertible Backpack

TLS means "Tough, Lightweight, Smart".



The eBags TLS Mother Lode Weekender Convertible is a good backpack to consider if you want a backpack with lots of packing space.

Let's go deeper into this bag and find out why it's so popular . . .


Material: Twisted Polyester

The bag is made of polyester thread made tougher by twisting. The thread thickness is 840-denier. Thread thickness usually range from 600 to 1200 denier.


Warranty: Lifetime

Warranties are a proof of manufacturer confidence as well as an assurance for the buyer. This backpack comes with a lifetime warranty.


Carry-On Convenience

The dimensions of the TLS Mother Lode: 22 inches high x 14 inches wide x 9 inches deep = 45 inches exactly. 45 inches is the magic number that should make this bag a carry-on with most airlines.

If you should need more space and won't mind the risk of cheking in your backpack the TLS Mother Lode will allow two inches of expansion space.

Packing Space

Overall packing space is 3,000 cubic inches or 49 liters. typical ranges for backpacks start at 20 liters all way to 70 liters for those big hiking packs.


Packing Convenience

The first indicator that this isn't your regular backpack is that the main compartment's zipper goes around three sides of the bag, allowing you the convenience of packing this backpack flat, like a suitcase!

The main compartment gives you a fold-down shelf through the middle that gives you a bottom storage area and a top storage area; each storage area has its own tie-down strap. Your stuff will be better distributed and won't lie in a heap at the bottom of your pack anymore. Alternatively, you can fold up this shelf and have this one big space.

There's also a zippered mesh panel running the length of the main compartment that allows you to further segregate your stuff.

The bright orange interior color allows you to better see what you've packed.

Once your all packed in, just to make sure everything is snug, this bag has four exterior compression straps to really make sure the contents don't shift, especially when you've got this pack on your back.

This bag is referred to as a 'Convertible' because you can hide the backpack straps in special pockets at the back. During transport as checked luggage the straps can be put out the way to prevent tangling.
