Great bag! This was a no-brainer for me, as I love Eagle Creek. My bigger, check size bag is the FlipSwitch and it's terrific. So when I wanted a new carry-on, I chose the Tarmac and I love it. Lightweight, lots of capacity and very sturdy and durable. I am a travel writer and travel and write for a living, so having the right gear is of utmost importance. You can't go wrong with this bag!

The wheels on my bag disintegrated. Eagle Creek's website has some replacement parts and nice videos for how to replace wheels on most models. Unfortunately, the wheels for this model were not listed. It took several go-rounds with their customer service to find the right wheels. This concluded when I sent the wrong ones back and included the disintegrated wheels. They sent the proper ones afterwards. See photo. The head guy was apologetic and claimed he had never heard about the wheels needing to be replaced on their products. See Photo.

Good news: It took ten minutes to replace them, thanks to the video posted on their website for a similar product. My much less expensive REI bag, the one with more miles and a much lower price tag, served me well during these events.

Bad news: Cost $ and took a long time to get the right wheels. Their website still doesn't list correct replacement part.

              Over 100 countries carrying, but now that the world is more paved, got a EC roller several years and many trips ago. While abusing it again coming back from Iceland, I said I must review this bag - brilliant design. My model is no longer made but seems the new ones are possibly even better. Good to go!

                Pack-it system works exceptionally well for me. This bag is tailored for this system. It's flexibility is terrific; I can use the same bag for a couple of days or a business week. I particularly love the coat strap and ability to stack my Eagle Creek computer bag on top. Its light-wight and large capacity are also strengths. My Tarmac 28" proved to be a true road-warrior bag - hundreds of flights, fully loaded, without a failure. I have dropped Tumi for Eagle Creek and do not plan on going back.

                        Took on a river cruise so experienced several transfers. However, the versatility of the smaller bag was great. Decided to check it instead of carrying onboard on the way back, and it came through with no mars or scars. Contents safe and intact.
                        Will be the most-used bag in my future due to its size and durability, I'm sure! For both short and long international travel.
