I've been using this bag for over 10 years and I have never regretted the purchase of the bag or using it on any particular trip. It is light when empty, a feature that is always valuable.

Through these years of use this bag has not suffered any failures and has been resilient in a variety of travel situations. I enjoy handles provided on top, center-front, and bottom. In my experience, those top and bottom handles are essential, sturdy, and well designed.

My suggestion to Eagle Creek would be to consider a 'short' companion to the 'laundry chute'. When packing, I use that large laundry chute pocket to corral flat items like documents, letters, postcards... When I'm on the go with the bag I could use an envelope-sized pocket (11 inches wide by 5 inches deep, say) at the top of the bag that can catch miscellany (perhaps a pen, a charger, a boarding pass, a receipt, a set of keys...) and hold it up there within reach when standing, waiting, and going about with the bag.

Great bag, would buy it again and would gift it to others as well.

Used the bag 3xs and the stitching on back has come apart and on my 3rd trip it has ripped where the stitching was coming apart. Also on my first trip the compression bukle broke cheap plastic piece, never had this problem with my Osprey carry on. Poor quality and workmanship.

Comments about Eagle Creek Tan Grey/Olive Green Load Warrior™ Carry-On Suitcase:

I have the larger black load warrior and have been very happy with it. I'd been looking at the 22" one and when it was on sale, I quickly ordered. Eagle Creek has thought of everything to make this luggage convenient and its light weight!

      Comments about Eagle Creek Tan Grey/Olive Green Load Warrior™ Carry-On Suitcase:

      This case is light weight, sized for domestic and foreign travel, well organized and easy to use. It was very hard to find any light weight cases of 9 inches that wasn't hundreds of dollars. This one is very reasonably priced and top quality. On a trip to China it was my carry on along with a check bag. On a 5 day casual trip to California it was all that I needed. The zippers and wheels work really well.

        We love this luggage! 2 long overseas trips now with them. 3 weeks in Madagascar and 3 weeks in Africa. Best carry-on luggage I have EVER owned. Destinctive, tough as nails, takes a beating, bulletproof, easy access to everything. If you only own 1 carry-on, this is it.

          We use these for leisure travel. Our load warriors are 2005 vintage and the wheels can't be replaced without sending in the bag. On the new bags it looks like the wheels are user replaceable, but can't tell and the specs don't say it. Alsom can't tell what the replacement wheels are. It looks like they are Item # EC0A2WHV but can't tell. On some EC bags you need a bolt cutter and replacement axle. Not sure what they are doing with these bags, hence a 3 star. If these aren't user replaceable (like mine) then 1 star only. If easy to replace then 5 star
