I'd had it with traditional 2-wheel bags. I've been living out of a suitcase for a few years, in and out of Europe and all over the US for work, so I wanted a bag that would easily go with me, hold up well on those European sidewalks, AND meet my requirements.

First off, I love this bag! Everything about it is perfect and exactly what I was holding out for. For the first time in a long time it felt great to have a carry on that I could effortlessly wheel around with me. I like to pack light, and this is the perfect bag to do that with.

However, after wheeling it around with ease in London for a weekend, I was asked to check my bag at the gate since the plane to Copenhagen was pretty full, so I did. Once I grabbed it off the belt, I noticed one of the wheels was getting jammed after each rotation, which was annoying, but I couldn't see anything visually wrong with it, so I switched sides and went with it. After leaving my hotel a few days later, a man came up to me carrying a wheel, which ended up being MY wheel. So you can imagine my disappointment after spending a pretty penny on a bag that became a burden to carry around after its first bag check.

I don't live anywhere near any of the warranty repair centers, and since I have to pay for the shipping costs from NC to NYC I can imagine it'll be much much cheaper and faster for me to just take it to a local repair shop and pay for it myself. It's definitely annoying!! I still love the bag however there are a lot of 'buts'. Hopefully this was just a one time thing. I'm still going to use it as my primary bag, but if this happens again so quickly then I'll have to ditch the bag.

        Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac AWD 25:

        I used my Tarmac on a long overseas trip and several within the US. I was very pleased with all aspects of it. I bought it in part because my girlfriend's globetrotting daughter swears by hard-shell luggage. On a recent trip to Miami the baggage handlers apparently dropped it from considerable height onto one hard-shell corner. The shell corner was bashed in and large cracks were made across the whole top of the bag, rendering it unusable for further travel. A friend in Miami applied lots of air conditioning duct tape inside and out so it could be used for a return flight but I wouldn't trust it again. I'm no longer sold on hard-shell luggage. Eagle Creek has been great about their guarantee however and have won my customer loyalty. My next bag (in shipment right now) is also an Eagle Creek, the fabric ORV. At least if an ORV is dropped it won't shatter!

            I LOVE suitcases that split open and you can pack on both sides. This suitcase is the best of all worlds -- hard and soft sides, expandable, able to attach other suitcases. It's amazingly versatile. PLUS, the customer service was amazing. Our original one was crushed by the airline, cracking the entire corner and making it unusable. I sent it via UPS to the repair center, and we received a completely new and better designed one within a week! Amazing. I will be loyal to Eagle Creek forever!!

              I compared similar suitcases and several cost twice as much. I'm sure they are worth it, but my Eagle Creek is just as good and a lot less in cost.

              I know own a 25 incher and a 22 incher.
