This Product Rocks!!!

By Cynthia

from Corning, NY, United States

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 28:

This product ROCKS!!!
My husband and I decided to put in the investment in this luggage last year and until recently, the luggage had only been used for easy domestic business travels.

Well, that is no longer true. I was in Tokyo during the Earthquake. To catch my flight out of Narita, I had to trek my luggage through the many subways and trains since roads were closed and there was only limited ways to get to the airport. The luggage, packed to the gills, had no trouble jumping tracks and wheeling over any obstacles with it's big wheels, as I moved around and eventually made my way to the airport.

I expect years of use from this luggage and when it is finally time to retire this luggage, Eagle Creek will be the only brand that I purchase.

Spacious Bag with Tons of Bonus Features

By Smoky Anderson

from Georgetown, CO

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 28:

So much space! I especially like the 2 interior zippered mesh pockets and large interior door panel. On top of already being such a spacious bag these extra features allow for even more organization and packing space. I use the interior door panel to store a Pack-It Garment Sleeve that held 4 jackets! Talk about compression! The bag is super tough too. It withstood holding 50lbs without bursting a

Extreme Capacity and Durability

By Smoky Anderson

from Georgetown, CO

Staff Reviewer

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 28:

It holds EVERYTHING!!! For any overnight stay be it by plane or car it allows me to always overpack. And it is light enough for me to lift it in and out of my trunk by myself. I's super durable too! I have sent it flying down several flights of stairs and it's been a trooper the whole way through. No broken wheels and the kick plate makes sure that the fabric stays clean and snag free. My favorite

You Can't Go Wrong with This Luggage!!

By M

from Raton, NM, United States

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 28:

I was going through a set of luggage a year and was very tired of it.I saw the reviews and warranty on the Eagle Creek Tarmac and and bought it to try out.It promptly went on a 3 month trip and has been on the travel for 200+ days a year for the past 3 years.It has survived all means of transportation and gorilla handling and is as good as new.I use it with and without the packing accessories which are also fabulous.I am throwing out my husbands luggage and ordering him the tarmacs today.I have previously bought him the large duffle for his international trips requiring lots of specialized gear.It also is still in great shape.You can't go wrong with this luggage!!

Lots of Research and Success!

By C.

from Chicago Environs, IL, United States

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 28:

Because of the new travel restrictions (size & weight of luggage) we were forced into purchasing new wheeled luggage bags. After many internet & in-person local store evaluations of a wide variety of well known brands (including expensive Tumis, etc) we chose 2 Eagle Creeks Tarmac 28s with their appropriate associated Eagle Creek packing solutions.On the basis of our recent trip (for 5 weeks) via United Airlines cross-country one word is more than sufficient to state the performance of our new Eagle Creek luggage: AMAZING!

In more detail: the Tarmac 28's are exceedingly roomy (more so than our previous older large, bulky, heavy but not as efficient Andiamo soft-sided pieces); they are very light in weight; they are very easy to wheel and maneuver. Strategically located hand straps made hand-handling, when necessary, easy and balanced.

The many separate individually zippered compartments (rather than one/two large compartments) were a marvel; they allowed packing to be systematic and items exceedingly easy to find and retrieve. Additionally, using the EC packing solutions further enhanced the ease of packing and finding. The zippers worked well and easily. The wheels rolled effortlessly and controllably, and they were able to stroll bumpy streets and ascend steep steps, curbsand escalators with ease. The luggage itself is very well balanced and further eases movement and control. The handle system is sturdy and reliable.

The protective molded pocket, sole patches, and skid plate protected as promised.

Cosmetically, after the trip, the entire luggage ensemble came through without even a noticeable blemish.
And it is certainly reassuring to be insured by your "No Matter What" Lifetime warranty!

A very significant factor in our purchase of the Tarmacs was our previous excellent experience with other Eagle Creek products: shoulder bags, business bags, and women\'s bags. Additionally, they are excellently and competitively priced, especially for the features, quality, and warranty they offer. They are quite pleasing cosmetically as well.
In short, again, these specific products are functionally AMAZING!

(P.S.: We have already convinced 3 friends to purchase similar products)

Great Piece of Luggage

By Tamara

from San Antonio, TX, United States

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 28:

I took this luggage to Guatemala this past month. Great piece of luggage to carry through the cobblestone streets and unpaved roads. The pack did not topple over nor get destroyed in rainy weather! There is a plus about this pack too: not destroyed during the travel in the airport from flight to flight transfers!!

Impressive

By paul

from Santiago, Chile

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 28:

I've lugged my bags all the way around the world...a few times!My job takes me to some remote places and my luggage spends plenty of time bouncing around in all types of vehicles from helicopters to horse carts.So far, it has not let me down.My gear stays dry and the luggage is durable.This is impressive given baggage handlers have 200-250 opportunities a year to break it.Other brands generally last a year.My Eagle Creek luggage has survived 2 years and it is still in good shape.

Great Warranty

By Carolyn

from Baton Rouge, LA, United States

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac 28:

Purchased new Eagle Creek and another piece of luggage costing more and also one of the top related for a two week to China.Upon return (8 airport changes, one cruise ship)
the other piece of luggage had to be replaced by the manufacturer because of "wear and tear" and still under warranty.The Eagle Creek still looked brand new.
