Great suitcase when you need larger than a carryon!

By Kermit

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Eagle Creek Smoky Blue Load Warrior™ 26 Suitcase:

I needed something slightly larger than a carryon for my 3 week trip to Africa. This suitcase is sturdy and lightweight. It does hold considerably more than a carryon, however, when I compared it side by side with other name brands in a sports store it appeared to be much less bulky than other 25 or 26 inch suitcases. Also, it doesn't tip over, either empty or full, like some of the other brands. The two wheels are well made, and easily go over curbs. My only complaint would be that the handle doesn't seem very substantial. That being said, Eagle Creek gives a 100% guarantee so I'm not worried if it fails in the future.

Just the right size. Not too big and not too small!

Comments about Eagle Creek Smoky Blue Load Warrior™ 26 Suitcase:

Just the right size. If you get it too big you go over the weight limit of 50lbs on a plane. Love Eagle Creek!

So far...

By Allison

Verified Buyer

Comments about Eagle Creek Smoky Blue Load Warrior™ 26 Suitcase:

I have an older version of this model in the discontinued Lime Green & Gray color which I've used travelling the world for
10 years. I love it so I decided to get the latest in another color. There seem to be a few changes but I hope it is as reliable as my older soft sided rolling duffle.

  • Please Add Shoulder Strap

Best Uses

  • All Around Travel Needs

Comments about Eagle Creek Smoky Blue Load Warrior™ 26 Suitcase:

The bad is 99% perfect. Because of it's size I think the addition of "hidden" Shoulder straps gives the traveler the option of using it as a backpack over rough terrain.

  • Good Zippers
  • Handles Well Placed
  • Large Capacity
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Needs Small Pocket At Top

Best Uses

  • Airline Travel

Comments about Eagle Creek Smoky Blue Load Warrior™ 26 Suitcase:

We have used our bags on a 7 day sailing trip, 5 day anniversary/beach trip...my husband and I both have one. We liked it so well, we bought the newer 26" for our son's birthday after he admired ours. Wish they had kept the 25" in production... I roll my shirts to fit in bottom bars of bag. My wish list:a small pocket at the top (in addition to the full length one) for small travel stuff. Side pocket is great for empty water bottle. Extra zippered area provides great expansion and flexibility. Tie downs are convenient...we are thrilled with these bags!!
