We bought Gear Warrior 32s for each of us. Our trips are usually long distance, long duration and only sitting for a couple of days before we move again. We use the luggage packs to identify individual items such as shirts, pants, underwear, cold weather pants and tops, rain gear and dirty clothes. That way we can stand the suitcase up or lay it down and the stacking of the items makes easy ID of the items. We also use clearer packs to ID used clothes when washers are avaialble and time is minimal. The best feature of all is the covered zippers that prevent the luggage gorillas from breaking the zippers. The wheels can be great when transporting, even over soft ground. Just completed a 30 day trip with stops at almost twenty places to change locations. The luggage packs help organize and find items quickly when we arrive and have to gather our cameras to get outside quickly, yet allows us to change according to weather conditions. Your luggage packs make travel a lot easier to stay organized.

When the bag first arrived, I was initially unimpressed with the quality. The straps across the front of the bag, the corner bumpers, and the zippers did not seem to be of high quality. The fabric in these areas seemed thin and seemed flimsy. Although I have only flow about 20k miles with this bag since then, the bag developed an unusual amount of abrasions on the front and pilling on the fabric and a tear developed in the corner of the bottom of the bag. While I expect any bag to pick up some wear and tear over time, this bag simply does not meet my expectations. I have owned other eagle creek bags and many pack it cubes and folders which I was very impressed with and have flown far more with. Unfortunately I can't say I am impressed with this bag. The quality is certainly down from previous eagle creek bags.
While I do appreciate the lightweight design of the bag, the compromises to fabric durability are not worth the benefits. If you need a lightweight, large duffle I would recommend the flatbed 32. It has a similar weight, has a larger capacity, and so far has had much better durability in my experience. Although these bags have a lifetime warrantee, I'm unsure that the hassle of getting a replacement every time the bag rips is worth it. I had the opportunity to check out some of eagle creeks newer bags in store and unfortunately I go the impression that these quality issues with my bag might be a feature of their newer bags.

Excellent bag; great company

Comments about Eagle Creek Black Gear Warrior™ 32 Suitcase:

The bag is exactly as pictured and demonstrated in the video. In my opinion its principal notable features are the very large interior space and high quality materials. There is no interior organizing pocket (which its immediate predecessor had). I would have preferred a few interior pockets rather than the slim exterior pocket which seems as if it is designed to hold a folded pillowcase and has little utility for me. I also would have appreciated (1) an exterior hook so that an extra bag could be carried and (2) a slightly longer extension handle so that a bag could be slid over it. But these are small details and other buyers might not agree. The bottom line is that the bag is terrific and exactly as pictured.

Comments about Eagle Creek Black Gear Warrior™ 32 Suitcase:

C'mon ladies our men need big bags that are easy to navigate and pack in the back of the car for that long trip or check in at the airport. It's lightweight! Great for packing everything a man needs and he has extra room for our stuff too! You know what I mean, we pack too many clothes and shoes. This bag can handle it!

Too small: uneven interior depth

By Jimmy Pop

from Boston, MA

  • High Quality

Cons

  • Small Capacity

Best Uses

  • Family Trips

Comments about Eagle Creek Black Gear Warrior™ 32 Suitcase:

I bought this suitcase thinking it would similar to the ORV Trunk 30 just fewer pockets. Unlike the trunk which has an even depth in the main compartment, the GW's compartment is sloping. It's deepest at the base and appears to be about 1/3 of the depth at the top of the case. This shortcoming isn't evident in the photos or video. It might work for summer weight clothes, but for a one week trip during the cold season the Gear Warrior wouldn't hold my stuff.

What more could you want in a bag? This thing is beautiful, it's tough, it's big but not too big, and it's got the No Matter What warranty. I've gone with the Gear Warrior and there's no turning back!
