I travel for work about 2-3 times a week. I use this bag for all the various electronics that I carry along for work. The only thing I would change would be the weels. I swapped them for a set of softer skate-wheel set. This is the most durable and well designed bag I've ever had. And I've tried many bags, from Briggs&Riley to Tumi. It's very easy to roll around effortlessly, and with the softer wheels I added, silently. The front pocket design is great and I love the sturdy handle. It's been checked into several hundred flights already and with only some minor scratches at worst. This bag will last a very long time.

The bag has a nice look and good capacity when combined with the Pack It cubes. It rolls well on most surfaces and the handles are comfortable to use. Most of the bag functions as advertised but within a year I ran into an issue where the zipper caught in the fabric and broke less than a year after purchasing the bag. I expected this to be taken care of pretty quickly through the Eagle Creek warranty program but found out shortly after returning my bag for service that it could take 6-7 weeks before it is returned but they could "try to expedite it once it's in the system". Not sure if Eagle Creek considers that an acceptable turn around time but I bought the bag because I believed it would last, not because I could afford to be without it for months at a time. I've enjoyed the bag when I was able to use it but proceed with caution if you actually use it on a regular basis.

    Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac AWD Carry-On:

    Had a dry spell with travel but finally did over Thanksgiving. This is my first experience with the 4 wheel system and it did exactly what I wanted. I could rotating the bag 90 degrees to get down narrow airplane isles without having to pick it up. I found that I was able to carry my wife's large, open bag with gifts on this luggage since I did not have to tip it, which tends to make this type of bag fall off eventually. Much easier. Also really enjoyed having the coat hangar function, which was new to me as well. I am a long time Eagle Creek customer and they have not disappointed me.

        • 3-5 day work trips.

        Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac AWD Carry-On:

        Great bag overall, would rate as 4.5 if that was an option. 4 wheels is definitely better than 2, rolls easily over most surfaces, adequate space for 3-5 day business trips or personal travel.

        Only flaw is - an inability to practically use the outside pockets when the main compartments are full. This may be a major issue to people who carry on and travel with their own toiletries, however I was able to move toiletries to briefcase and put a light weight rain jacket in the empty large outside pocket. I would prefer to leave my toiletries in the outside pocket, but wasn't a deal breaker for me.

                This suitcase is the perfect size for my business and personal trips. I can pack with cubes and fit all of my necessities in this carry-on for a long weekend or even a longer trip if washing machines are available. It fits a surprising amount in a small space and it fits on airplanes with ease. I love the clam shell design and it works really well with the packing cubes. My wife and I both have this suitcase and we both love it for any of our domestic and international trips. Eagle Creek has won us over!

                    This bag is amazing. I love the centre split; makes it easy to access items -- even to pull out your liquids at security line-up. It practically rolls itself. It is so smooth, comfortable and easy to roll that the $ you spend on it initially will be saved in taxi fare as you will gladly walk a few km with this great bag. It packs easily (I use packing cubes, but it is not necessary). I use it both for overnight to few night business trips...but it will also do a vacation for 10 days easily. The only issue I've had is that I need to be cautious when closing the expansion zipper to ensure the excess expansion material does not get stuck in the zipper. Close it whilst running a finger along the material and you will be fine. Even if you run into a problem I expect the warranty is great (though I have not had to use it on this bag, but I have a much older bag large rolling canvas bag from Eagle Creek that has been bashed around for > 18 years with broken zipper, broken canvas and bent retractable handle. Took it to my local travel-luggage shop and it was returned to me fully repaired by Eagle Creek in one week with no charge. I have never written an online review in the past, but this case is so excellent and Eagle Creek's service is so good, I really thought it warranted this review. I have recommended it to a friend who purchased it and is also delighted.
