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.

      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!

          Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac AWD Carry-On:

          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.

                I wanted a bag that was functional, rolled well (high priority), sufficient space, lightweight and would hold up to almost weekly travel. This bag does all of that and with the No Matter What warranty I am glad it works because I will have it for a very long time. The only thing I would change is bring the opening to one side rather than splitting the case in half. Just a personal preference. I have also enjoyed using the compression cubes with this bag. They fit well and allow for packing more and keeping things organized.

                    Perfect luggage to pack all the essentials for any trip. I loved being able to pack for a long trip in such a small space. It was easy to move around and I was able to attach an additional luggage on top with the straps that were included and it was definitely helpful because I didn't not strain in trying to hold both.
