Best International Duffle I have Owned

I have had a smaller Eagle Creek Carry-on and liked the durability of the carry-on as well as their attention to making the carry-on conform to international carry-on standards (which as 1.5" less in length than US carriers). My check-in luggage has always been "terminated" by the airlines mostly due to dangling straps, zipper pulls, and the lock get snagged in conveyor belts. This bag is superbly designed to hide the strap-ends and the luggage lock inside of the outer flaps that snap across the outside of the luggage to pull it tight. There zippers are very good, I love the laundry chute as well as a great outside full-length pocket with a full U-shaped zipper that is perfect for placing trousers and a jacket or fleece that helps to keep the outside padded but does not smash up trousers inside the duffle. The thumb-sized zipper pulls are great.

The rubberized corner protecters are good, but I wish they has doubled the thickness of the top rubber corners since these often take the brunt of the conveyor belts and sliding luggage into a plane. The wide spacing of the wheels has prevented the bag from ever flipping over when wheeling it to through an airport or hotel.

The overall quality is superb. The extension handle and large wheels are great (the wheels are replaceable).In 35 years of travel, this is by far one of the top duffle bags I have used. The extension handle is tucked away in a zippered slot which helps to preserve the handle. This bag has traveled over 110,000 miles so far this year and still looks like new.

It can easily hold 10-12 days of clothing in the bag and often need to do some laundry on a trip but the bag holds plenty and the lightweight bag allows for plenty of packing space before you reach the weight limits.

Definitely recommend this bag!

Comments about Eagle Creek Black Gear Warrior™ 29 Suitcase:

Quality bag. Decided to bite the bullet after reading some reviews and spend the 2X plus money on this versus stuff at the big box stores. Bag held up well on international flights on a long trip and is crazy lightweight. Also got this bag in another color for the wife and she was also very happy with it. The extra handles and compression straps also make it very easy to handle for both us and various baggage handlers. So with the lifetime warranty will hopefully be a bag I'll use long into the future.

Great Product - But get the 32!!!

Comments about Eagle Creek Black Gear Warrior™ 29 Suitcase:

I really love this bag so far. The flexibility of a duffel allows for manipulation when packing. The "laundry" compartment is a great divide, as well. I travel weekly for work and have already received comments from coworkers on how durable the bag looks, especially the sturdy wheels.

**The only thing I realized after purchase is that I should have purchased the 32. I am consistently 4-5 pounds underweight at the airport and the bag is stuffed to the brim. The 32 would have been the perfect size, but Eagle Creek won't do any sort of return/exchange since the bag has been used. Don't make my mistake, get the 32!!! :(

The perfect adventure travel solution

Comments about Eagle Creek Black Gear Warrior™ 29 Suitcase:

Love my new gear warrior. After retiring my heavy old suitcase I struggled with on my overseas hiking trip the gear warrior solved all my problems. It is light, durable, wheels on uneven terrain, easy to maneuver, has lots of useful features and I love the blue color. I'm glad your customer service staff suggested this option when I described my travel needs. The packing cubes made it a breeze to pack and find my clothes.

    Comments about Eagle Creek Black Gear Warrior™ 29 Suitcase:

    This luggage is so perfect for my safari trip to Tanzania. I bought the khaki colored one. The weight and size is just absolutely what I have in mind. The material of this luggage is so durable, plus it gives you the sense you are going on an expedition.

    I really liked this product. Easy and convenient to use. It felt very durable. I'm hoping to use it for a long time. The only thing that would make it better would be to have four wheels. I bought two and they were fairly easy to pull.
