If you get charged tax at Amazon, it might be better to go through either of these sites (one has all 3 colors to choose from):

RockyMountainTrail.com
backCountryGear.com
EverstGear.com

Or you can choose one of the other sellers that is not being sold by Amazon (one has it for $90, free shipping, and no tax).

By the way, I love my Osprey Manta 36. They make great bags and have excellent customer service.

Sorry, that was a typo...it was supposed to read $90. I will update my post to reflect that.

This is a great price on a great bag.

My wife and I each bought one for $95 from REI (pm'd to Amazon) in 2014. We lived out of them for 6 months while backpacking in Asia and now that we're back to normal life we continue to use them as our main vacation luggage. Love these backpacks.

This. Have used ours on 5 trips abroad, 3 to Europe for 2 weeks each. You can't have it all but this comes close and is perfect size for budget airlines.

They share the same concept--maximum size in a carry-on, but there are some key differences.

The Porter 46, which I've used to "one bag" it virtually everywhere--domestically and abroad--since I bought it in 2009, is a high quality product with an unconditional lifetime warranty. It is a minimalist design with just a few zero-volume zippered areas so that one can make use of a single, large storage area.

On the other hand, the TLS Mother Lode Weekender Convertible is the pack that I bought my 16 year old nephew when it was on SD for $53. It's a decent quality bag, but it divides the bag's volume up with many more pockets, dividers, compartments, and expansion zippers that (a) prevents one from packing the largest of items, (b) adds to the amount of material that is vulnerable to tearing at the stitches, and (c) adds almost a pound to the weight of the bag (important when flying some foreign airlines with very low allowances)

Both are good options, so the real question is how often one travels, and what airlines they expect to fly. In my opinion, the eBags option is for a less frequent traveler who might fly domestically most often, or who doesn't need to carry their bag far once they're off the airplane. However, if weight and flexibility are more important with a more frequent travel lifestyle, I'd lean toward the Osprey bag.
