This wonderful piece of Eagle Creek luggage is my favorite, with the mulitiple inside zip compartments and great look and color, (mine is light green), but unfortunately, it does notpass the carry on luggage requirements of many foreign Flight requirements. I have been stopped multiple times in Europe and Asia when it did not fit into the metal box that is used as a standard. While it measures as if it should fit, it doesn't fit into thesetight fitting metal test frames. Thus, I've had to argue, fight, and try to get my important documents on board, even once being escorted through security via a back route. Otherwise, I've had to re-check the bag through baggage, when a fee must then be incurred with many airlines.I would re-classify this bag, as not being regulation for carry on. It fits perfectly in the overhead bins, but this argument does not hold with the government flight regulations.I am looking at downsizing, unfortunately, to your 20Tarmac.A 21Tarmac could be aperfect fit.

Keep up your great designs and colors

I have been stalking the Tarmac 22 here and will buy it again as soon as they bring back the old clamshell design. It used to have two functional compartment sides - one being the main compartment (with a built-in shoebag, invaluable) and the other built into an extra-deep lid. The lid side was several inches deep and was also divided into two wonderful sections, one a large compartment and one a smaller one (toiletries or underwear/socks).

This used to be a genius design. Now the new Tarmac is a plain old suitcase with a flap for a lid, which you can get anywhere.

I bought the old one, and I liked it so well I bought that year's 25, too. Now I would like to get another 22, but when I received this model and took one look at the sweeping changes, I sent it back. I'll buy it again when they bring back the old compartments.

        Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 22:

        I have been traveling weekly two to four flights a week with the Tarmac 22 for over three years. Fantastic bag - great packing space, especially with the packing system - and unbelievably durable. My bag is now filthy so I started shopping for a replacement only to find the updated model does not have the same duel compartments in the lid. New model looks less functional than the prior design. Why the change? Please bring back the duel compartments in the lid!!!

        Tough bag, poor design

        By Ed, regular use

        from Hong Kong

        Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 22:

        The bag is tough and it is well made with good materials. BUT I want to tear my hair out sometimes because whoever designed the bag hasn't thought it through. The little pocket on the front is not wide enough and too deep, you can fit a phone/passport/kindle in there but not much else. And if you have a laptop in the main front pocket, then this takes up all the available space of the little front

        Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 22:

        I've had this bag for 1.5 years now and it is terrific.Well designed & executed.Not cheap, but it should pay for itself in baggage fees that I don't have to pay.Great warranty.

        Size is important...But the organization is paramount.I use it for everyday car & airline travel. The organization is better than just about any case I've used.

        Loud Sound When Moving on Hard Surface

        By Kevin

        from Menlo Park, CA, United States

        Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 22:

        I am a huge fan of Eagle Creek products and own two ES2 luggage (Tarmac 22 and 25) plus accessories.I'm excited to see the improvements made for the new ES3 series: for example the introduction of Tarmac 20 wide body and previous version is a bit small; the redesigned Tarmac 22 external compartment is large enough to fit a 15 inch laptop (ES2 Tarmac can't) and this saves time when passing through the security line.It's clear that the Eagle Creek team has put in much effort in continued improvement of their products.However, I have one complaint about theseries: the wheels make a loud sound when moving on hard surface.I suppose the design was to extend wheel life by using a hard material. I encourage you adopt a quieter wheel design.

        No Regrets.

        By Michael

        from Boston, MA, Uni

        Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 22:

        Purchased one 3 weeks ago. I've dragged it around the trains and subways of NYC on two week-long trips since then.No regrets.The wheels are quiet. It's built rugged, and is stylish. I do have 2 items for feedback: (1) I've noticed when going up and down escalators on the NY subway there is no extra protection on the bag up where the sharp escalator step edges hit the bag if it's leaning forwar

        Hooked on Their Products

        By Russsell

        from San Francisco, CA, United States

        Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 22:

        I have used Eagle Creek products for many years. I have traveled around the planet many times and love the fact that I trust these products. The guarantee is amazing! My ex decided to take out her anger on a Tarmac 22 with a razor and when I called Eagle Creek about a repair they took the damaged bag and replaced it without question - am I hooked on their products or what?
