Too much padding, not like the older version

1

This bag is a major disappointment, compared to older Tarmac versions. Too much padding takes away valuable space. Why a laptop compartment? I am business traveler I am going to have my laptop in its own case or bag for going into the office. Luckily I found an older version of the Tarmac at my local Triple A office. Bought it immediately but feel duped I spent so much on the newer version that I deem worthless unless I just need a two night stay bags for a quick weekend.

Fixing a couple flaws would make this the perfect carryon

4

I bought this a few months ago and have taken it on 6 or 7 international and domestic flights. I'm a bit of a luggage junkie, always in search of the elusive bag that does everything I want it to. This one comes close, but I'm still looking. Here are things I love about it: * solid outside construction. A brilliant blend of hard and soft surfaces and well thought-out exterior design. Great inclusion of reflective surfaces too. * wheels are great quality and roll well. I feel confident pulling this across rugged surfaces. * some of the inside is really well-designed, including the padded laptop sleeve and lots of zippered pockets. What they could improve to make this an excellent bag: * change the zippered opening from the middle of the bag to the top. As others have said, cutting the bag in two equal halves when unzipped eats into usable space. It means only one side can be overstuffed because only one side has the zippered expansion feature. For a small bag, this is almost a deal breaker. * the half that can be overstuffed should be on the bottom, not the top when opening the bag. It makes a full bag cumbersome to open, especially when you lay it on its side in an airport to stuff in that one last thing. * the outside pockets are almost useless, they're so shallow. Make them a bit deeper. * the zipper should be of the highest quality for a bag this pricey and otherwise well-constructed. Mine hasn't broken or stuck like a lot of other reviewers', but it does not operate smoothly. None of this is enough to make me not recommend the bag, which I love in a lot of ways, but with a few design tweaks, Eagle Creek, you'd have the bag of my dreams.

Total Disappointment

1

I am a frequent Eagle Creek product user and purchased this bag, sight unseen, based on decades of experience with the brand. The bag is poorly designed: (1) I can't carry it by the handle as it is weighted improperly and hits me in the leg, (2) the handle placement makes it awkward to put into an overhead compartment, (3) I can't let go of it or it rolls away even on the slightest slope, (4) the zipper came apart on the first and only use, and (5) the compartments are too small to fit much of anything, including the usually fantastic pack-it cubes. I would return it, but the company wouldn't take it back because it was used. Off to a local charity it goes.

Love the Tarmac - the wheels are amazing!

5

I've had an Eagle Creek carry-on bag for more than 20 years, and really loved it. Recently,I bought one of the larger Tarmac models for a longer trip, and loved it so much I decided to get the Carry-On model as well to replace my 20-year old one. The larger wheels are amazing, and work really well over cobblestone streets. I really appreciate the Coat Keeper, it's so nice to have that feature built-in to the bag instead of trying to rig up something. I love the bag, and love the company. Great customer service and quality!!

Just doesn't fit enough stuff for the space.

1

I'm a big fan of Eagle Creek and own several suitcases and accessories. They have never steered me wrong UNTIL this one. So many compartments that fit nothing! So much wasted space. I just did an experiment and packed my usual amount into this bag - it wouldn't close - not eve close. I then grabbed my old EC carry on - and repacked with the same amount of stuff. Everything fit! Unfortunately I've taken the tags off or I would return it. This is definitely not the bag for me.

Highly Recommended

I purchased this product based upon various reviews. I highly recommend the Tarmac Carry-on. Its construction is first rate and appearance is very modern. Having just returned from a cross country trip on Amtrak and return flight on United, I still highly recommend this product. It may be more expemsive that other bags, but you will get your money back.

Impressed with the Tarmac Carry-on

Haven't use the product yet on a travel. Based on initial feel and touch, the product feels very durable. The only minor complaint I have is that users cannot adjust the "add a bag" strap. Hence your duffle bag might drag on the ground if it is too big.

I would buy the Tarmac carry on again

This piece is what we have been looking for to replace our tired old carry on. The slate blue color is amazing. The Tarmac carry on has lots of space. We love how well built it is. Cannot wait to use for our next trip.
