Mother Lode TLS Weekender Convertible



The eBags Mother Lode TLS Weekender Convertible was featured in the San Francisco Chronicle Travel section in December 2009: "...Best-of-field award for design, materials and value."

Quite possibly the last Travel Pack you may ever need, this Carry-on Convertible is loaded with smart features; If your laptop's middle dimension (width) is no more than 11.75", and the longest dimension (length) is between 10.0" and 19.0", the Laptop Sling will adjust for a perfect fit, expandable compartment, contoured Airmesh backpack straps, travel organizer, fold down shelf, the list goes on and on - and at 3.7 lbs, it's amazingly light weight.


  • True to the Mother Lode TLS series, there are a number of innovative interior and exterior features:
  • Adjustable laptop storage in a convertible! Discretely placed at the very top of the bag, the eBags Laptop Sling (patent-pending) cradles your laptop between a thick back-foam panel and the contents of the bag
  • Will your laptop fit? If your laptop’s middle dimension (width) is no more than 11.75”, and the longest dimension (length) is between 10.0” and 19.0”, the Laptop Sling will adjust for a perfect fit
  • Adjust the height to place your laptop in the most ideal vertical location based on what you packed and what feels good on your back
  • Adjust it once – snap it in/out quickly. Your clothing provides protection on the bottom/sides/top. A separate lining panel makes it easy to re-insert into a packed bag after going through airport screening

  • Fold-down shelf in the main packing compartment splits the space in half and reduces the shifting of contents to the bottom. If you don’t want to use it, un-snap it and fold it down
  • An unusual double-zip “U” shaped front compartment features a travel organizer Pen pocket, phone pocket, medium and large zippered pockets, zippered mesh pocket, and an extra-long key leash
  • Internal tie-down straps in the main compartment are generous in length and adjust from "high" to "low" cinch positions, letting you pack in layers
  • When clipped into the “high” position, they function as internal compression straps pulling down on the TOP of your clothes as well as the side gussets. When clipped “low”, they pull from the bottom edges
  • Snap-out zippered mini-pocket at the top of the compartment
  • Zippered mesh panel inside the lid of the main compartment helps to divide and organize
  • Interior main compartment measures 21.5" high, 5.5" deep, and has a tapered width from 13” to 14” – for a less boxy, more elegant look not found in the typical convertible
  • The front compartment is the full height/width of the main compartment, with depths ranging from 5” to around 3”
  • Like the TLS Wheeled Duffels, there is a zippered "forehead" pocket with a floating lining. You choose where to pack things. In the pocket, or in the front compartment – the lining will shift without any loss of total packing capacity
  • Vertical zippered front face pocket is perfect for boarding passes and will not “walk open” no matter how long your journey
  • A discrete water bottle pocket stores inside a zippered pocket, for better checked-baggage durability
  • Hidden inside the zippered pouch pocket is the TLS ID pocket. Never worry about loosing a luggage tag
  • Four exterior compression straps are carefully placed to provide maximum compression and reduced stress on the zippers. A partially packed bag benefits equally, preventing the contents from sloshing around
  • Hide-away contoured backpack straps are generously padded with Airmesh and feature a fully adjustable/removable sternum strap system
  • Full expansion zipper when you need extra volume - adds over 10 percent
  • Accessory loops are well placed, and the shoulder strap webbing is easily adjusted with a tug on the thumb-loop speed-cinch webbing
  • Self-repairing YKK® coil zippers use double sliders on almost all openings. Some have pullers that use photo-reflective sport cords for nighttime safety
  • Lockable D-rings on primary zippers discourage tampering and keep luggage locks in a consistent location
  • Three padded grab handles (top, bottom, side) for safe lifting from trunks and overhead compartments, and from beneath a seat
  • Adjustable/removable well-padded shoulder strap
  • High-visibility 210D orange nylon lining makes finding your stuff a lot easier
  • Simple, effective, removable waist belt
  • Total weight of bag only (without additional straps) is 3 lbs. 11.2 oz.
  • 840D Twisted Filament Polyester exterior
  • All YKK buckles


  • Capacity: 54.1 litres
  • Laptop Compartment Size: 19" x 11.75" x 1.5"
  • Material: 840D & 900D Twisted Poly
  • Comments: 3651 Cubic Inches fully expanded. Weight does not include removable shoulder strap or waist strap.

Designer Notes:

Our customers tell us what they think of our products every day... fortunately, we think we're pretty good listeners. The TLS Weekender Convertible was created with input from close to 2,000 dedicated customers. I am really proud of this addition to the TLS family and hope you agree. Enjoy!
