Perfect in every way


I have a 2-wheel Eagle Creek suitcase that I have really fallen in love with, and so I chose to consider Eagle Creek when replacing my very old roller board that I use for quick trips. I needed something within American Airlines' dimensions and the Expanse was perfect. It's lightweight, durable, and perfect for packing enough for a 3-day trip (I am a light packer by nature, so I only pack what I need). Sometimes returning from business events I have some materials that I acquire, so the expansion zipper was appealing. I'm very happy I chose this bag! (And the lifetime warranty made me even happier!)


Philadelphia, PA




Light weight but handle seems lightly made. Needs side pockets. Pleased so far.



Just what I was looking for


This carry-on is lightweight, high quality, great design. I really like it! I never check my bag so this bag is perfect for domestic trips as well as international. The low profile wheels don't take up any space in the overhead bins. Useful outer pockets, roomy main compartment.


Flagstaff, AZ


A company you can count on.


Every Eagle Creek product we have bought over the past 20 years has held up very well and I expect this one to be no different. When we have had minor problems, Eagle Creek has backed up their warranty 100%. We are very happy with Eagle Creek.



Looks to be a good replacement for my older EC DoubleBack


I haven't used this bag yet, but its beautiful and well-made. Functional bag that is lightweight, has all the features I need (without overkill). Expect it to serve me well. Would like to give it 5 stars but there are two immediate drawbacks from the current Tarmac models and my old EC DoubleBack. 1) There are no "feet" on the bottom front of the bag so it sits securely level when left standing. There is just a single "stay" mounted at the front, this has a small indent barely fitting my (very small) fingertips. 2) There is no handle on the bottom of the bag - the stay has a "finger grip" level of indent which will be a hassle when lifting the bag on the luggage valet or into the overhead. With more and more airlines asking for "handles in" placement of bags, it will be a hassle to remove from overhead bin as well. Otherwise this bag fits what I need (given that I can't buy a newer version of my old bag) so I'll give it a few trial runs to see if this "less featured" bag will perform as well for me as my last EC - which served me well for nearly 2 decades.



I would definitely buy this bag again!


Been looking for new luggage for awhile, this has everything I've been looking for, size, durability, lightweight. Wheels are positioned so not to "add wasted" space, fits easily in overhead bins.



I selected two other companies' bags before buying this one.


I use this bag when driving to our cabin. For it's size, it carries a lot. I pack it with a week's worth of clothes using the expansion feature. I'm happy with the bag.



I do like that it's lightweight.


I really like this carry on bag. There are a couple of things that I wished it had: 1) a small zipper pocket on the inside. 2) wheels (4) so that the bag walks with you as oppose to pulling behind you.



Never cease to impress


This is the 4h bag I've bought either for myself or friends. Love the look, the quality and the versatility.




Perfect measure. One big mistake: 2,7kg is to heavy


Holidays and business. Cabinsize is perfect
