I just returned from a one-week multi-country business trip in Central America. I'm pleased with the bag's maiden voyage. It rolls so easy and is almost effortless to maneuver through the airport. The suitcase has a good weight to volume ratio. The external pockets are good and I love that it comes with a bottle opener. We bought the green version. Unfortunately, the external materials do get scuffed up and show wear - this is probably not as noticeable on the black model, though. I am a little worried about the strength of the handles for lifting the bag, but with the warranty EC offers, I'm not going to worry that much. My wife just took the bag on a business trip to West Africa where it will get a tougher workout, so I'll update this review when she gets back if there's anything significant to report.

I have owned a half-dozen Eagle Creek suitcases for the last ten years, and this Tarmac 30 4WD was our most recent purchase. On the first leg of our first trip with this suitcase, one of the side straps meant to take pressure off the main zipper tore loose from the bag. No other damage or evidence of any unusual force or violence to the bag - just a torn loose strap with what looks like a handful of stitches in a single line along the edge that used to be attached to the body of the suitcase. I have been a big fan of Eagle Creek for years, and my older suitcases were built tough; this looks like a flimsy design and indifferent workmanship. Otherwise, the 4WD design made it easy to handle, and the body and handles make it easy to pack and to maneuver. I am returning it for a repair under the warranty, but am half-tempted to ask for a refund instead. I won't be buying any more of these if this is the new standard for quality at Eagle Creek.

                Like the clamshell type opening - easy to find items.
                Like straps that reduce strain on the main compartment zipper.
                Clothes in the two main sections are held in place well.
                Placement of handles makes it easy to pick up and position for use.
                Comments based only on one trip - new.
