I have had this bag for about a year now and I think it's just awesome. I take it on short trips and I can stack my backpack over the handle. I take it on long trips (to China, Japan, New Zealand) along with my regular rolly and I can stack it on top of that. I can acquire new items on my trip and stuff them in the top area. Every time I take it out I am so happy! I've never tried actually fitting it under my seat; keep meaning to try but I usually stow my backpack there.

However, yesterday at LAX the (American Airlines) gate agent flagged me as I was boarding and made me stick it in the sizing cube they have to check whether bags are too big to fit on the plane. It was in its "small mode" too. I was flabbergasted!! It was too wide to fit in the 9" slot ... I had to argue hard for its approval and remove some items from the front pocket so I could shove it in. Such an irritating experience!

Now that I'm home I've double checked the width - it's indeed 9" for the canvas portion if you don't include the front pocket but if you measure at the bottom including the wheels and the pocket it's about 10 1/2" - so just watch for those hard-nosed gate agents. Next time I think I'll try turning it upside down before they make me stuff it in the sizing box.

Light weight, well built with little capacity.

I bought this carry on because Eagle Creek has excellent products with a life time warranty. I needed a very light weight, 2 wheeled carry on. I usually carry my 13" computer in its tote bag, a small bag with medicines and another small cosmetic case,my Kindle and my Bose headphones. I tried to fit my computer case in the lower (larger) section. The only way it would fit was standing up on its side. I really couldn't get anything else in the lower compartment.

Pros: Handle is sturdy and extends well
Sturdy wheels that roll easily
Cons: Very small capacity
The zippers to the main compartments are YPP, The majority of zippers are difficult to manage

      Comments about Eagle Creek EC Adventure Pop Top Carry-On:

      Being low when the top isn't used the carrying is excellent with the weight born by the wheels. The edge between the wheels needs to have abrasion resistance (Leather, plastic or metal). Real world rough walking areas easily destroyed the "rip stop" edge on mine. All walking areas aren't paved smooth surfaces.

            Perfect for a weekend Vegas trip. Perfect for a carry on and no need to check in luggage. Using the packing cubes helps load lots of things in a small area with room to expand as needed.

            Comments about Eagle Creek EC Adventure Pop Top Carry-On:

            I was looking for a carry-on that would fit under any airline seat. Specifically the short hop jets that have very small space under-seat. Because I did not want to check my carry-on for those flights. When I received this bag I realized it is of excellent quality but just too big for me so I returned it. I thought the expansion feature was excellent, but again, thought the profile would be smaller. The measurements spec'd were accurate, just seemed bigger than I imagined. Dealing with Eagle Creek was fine for both ordering and return.

                  Only suggestion would be to have a pocket on the tip for flight tickets, etc., easier access there.
                  Great size for overnight stays as well as a great carry on for flights. Like the ability to expand it for flights and still be able to fit in the overhead.
