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.

    A really great carry on.

    Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac Carry-On:

    I purchased my first Tarmac Carry on in September. Since then it has traveled from NH to CA, Spain, and Israel. It is well designed, can carry a lot, and is easy to maneuver (even when packed to the gills). I like the coat gadget for securing items draped on top of the suitcase. I had no problems being allowed to carry on the 22inch in both Europe and the Middle East. I liked the bag so much I bought a second one as a holiday gift for my husband.

    Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac Carry-On:

    about 6 years ago, I bought my first Tarmac roll-aboard. This year i decided that it needed replacement. Under Eagle's No Matter What warranty, I was able get it replaced with a new one.
    It's great! strong zippers all around. A couple extra clips and straps that weren't part of my old one. Redesigned internals to give a little better space control. All in all, a great bag. I expect that this lasts through my next 500K miles with no issues.
    If there's a small downside, it is actually just a little smaller than my original bag. I think it's in the depth, not sure. But when I fill it with my normal travel things for the week, I have to work to get them all in.

    BTW, I pack heavy. Here's a typical list for a 4 day trip. Toiletry bag (12"x6"x5"), 4 pairs of slacks, 4 dress shirts/sweaters, 2 sports jackets, 5 underwear, 7 t-shirts, 2pr Dress shoes, 1pr running shoes, 2 belts, gym outfit,

    Try that in a normal roll-aboard.

    I looked everywhere for something that would hold similar volumes. Didn't find anything that seriously competed. I travel 100% of the time, so carrying the right bag is critical to my mindset. I'll stay with Eagle Creek.

    Quality Gear

    Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac Carry-On:

    We aren't constant travelers, but when we do we like to use the best gear available - we didn't even know about Eagle Creek until I did my normal research on things with which we aren't real familiar - that's when we found Eagle Creek, we bought a Tarmac 28 and then the Tarmac Carry-On - this is flat high-quality stuff, does everything we hoped it would and does it effortlessly.

    The Tarmac Carry-on is sturdy, easy to pack efficiently, ingenious in its cords and nets for carrying extras, well-balanced when necessary to carry, and easily maneuvered when rolling. A first-rate travel aid.

    I purchased looking ahead to a few future flights, but tried it out when I road tripped to my family's for Thanksgiving. Plenty of run, loving the little bells and whistles. Seems incredibly sturdy. Looking forward to using this for many years to come.
