Lightweight carry-on for 3-5 day trip

I have been looking for a non-wheeled lightweight alternative to my 21″ Samsonite spinner wheeled carryon, and would appreciate some feedback from this board on the following bags:

(1) Golite convertible
(2) Patagonia MLC
(3) Timbuk2 Wingman
(4) Any other alternative ????

Ideally, the bag would be 19-20″ x 13-14″ x 7-8″ and weigh around 3# or less. The bag should have at least 2 main compartments. The backpack straps and shoulder straps should be very comfortable.

Thanks in advance for your input.

    Eagle Creek Exploration Traverse would be the right option for you. It best suits your specifications with dimensions of 14 x 19 x 7.5 inches. It’s a good daypack for your short trip as it has a lockable laptop and main compartment. You can visit MonsterBags online store to check out other bags which fall in the similar range as you ask for.
