I travel about 45 weeks per year. I went through many bags at first, but as you know, the airlines are rough on these things. Over 5 years ago I got this bag. The warranty was a big selling point. I have not been disappointed with the bag, or the warranty. Traveling as much as I do, there isn't a bag made that can withstand all of the airline abuse. Including this one. After a couple of years, I needed some repairs done. I followed the instructions on the website for sending it in for repairs, and a few weeks later it came back, all fixed. This happened again a couple of years later... remember, this bag is on at least 150 flights per year! Same thing... returned in great condition. Well, last month, I needed more work done. This time there were a few things. Zippers, handle, etc. The bag still worked, but these things were going out. By now, this bag has been probably close to 800 flights! Well, today they sent me a brand new bag. Same model, with some improvements they've made since I bought mine. What other company stands behind their product like this? I'd buy another one of these in a heartbeat... but I won't need to! I would definitely buy and recommend Eagle Creek.

Broken Zipper

The zipper separated from the bag. Not cool. Using the warranty has been a hassle. I have other Eagle Creek bags. This one is not of the same quality.

Great suitcase!

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 26 Suitcase:

I purchased a new set of Tarmac luggage (22", 26", and 29") to update my travel gear. The 26" suitcase will be my most used check in size suitcase. It has excellent capacity for its weight and size. The fabric feels durable and all wear points are reinforced. The telescoping handle is sturdy and operates smoothly. The exterior pocket zippers all have two rows of teeth and feel very substantial. The large wheels roll easily and are well protected. There are plenty of handles to make moving the suitcase easy. The interior pockets provide a little bit of organization, but they do not get in the way if one does not want to use them. This bag is designed to use Eagle Creek's packing system which I like to use anyway. The add a bag strap and coat keeper are very convenient. I opted for the green color as it is unique and easy to spot.

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 26 Suitcase:

The bag is light, compact, and yet is still perfect for all my traveling needs. I have the green suitcase and I love the lime green inside, it makes it easy to find items in the bag. The lifetime warranty is also wonderful.

Previous model better in some ways.

By Road Warrior

from Vancouver , BC

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 26 Suitcase:

Eagle Creek changed the outside bag material for there Tarmac line. I have the previous one. The material was smoother and seemingly tougher. This new material has a fabric texture and will get dirtier much more easily.

The warranties are great, just not sure whether I would get this newer incarnation. Maybe EC is cost cutting ....?

      Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 26 Suitcase:

      Great capacity and out pockets are a real plus. Add a bad hookup works well. The inside lid pocket is deeper than most.
      The one change I would suggest is to make the mesh inside cross-cover adjustable on both ends. Because one side is stationary, the mesh covers 1/2 of the interior and the other 1/2 just has angular straps. Not bad-just a little odd.

      Great mid-size suitcase.

      Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 26 Suitcase:

      Great size for an extended trip. Rugged -- although I've had only a short time it's clear it will take a lot of abuse. Very functional with many pockets and such. Attractive looking. Light weight. Easy and smooth rolling.

      Love the design and useful extra pockets. Will put it to a real test soon on a tour of Costa RICO. The extra "handle latchup" will come in handy for more than securing a jacket.

      Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 26 Suitcase:

      I bought this (with the weekend bag) for a long trip to Singapore. I like the quality of this bag and it's capacity for check-in luggage. I also like that there aren't too many bells and whistles, and that the wheels seem study - and that there are only 2! Nothing more I hate than these uncontrollable 4-wheels contraptions. So, good product. Not so for the weekend bag as carry-on (see separate review).
