I travel for work about 2-3 times a week. I use this bag for all the various electronics that I carry along for work. The only thing I would change would be the weels. I swapped them for a set of softer skate-wheel set. This is the most durable and well designed bag I've ever had. And I've tried many bags, from Briggs&Riley to Tumi. It's very easy to roll around effortlessly, and with the softer wheels I added, silently. The front pocket design is great and I love the sturdy handle. It's been checked into several hundred flights already and with only some minor scratches at worst. This bag will last a very long time.

The bag has a nice look and good capacity when combined with the Pack It cubes. It rolls well on most surfaces and the handles are comfortable to use. Most of the bag functions as advertised but within a year I ran into an issue where the zipper caught in the fabric and broke less than a year after purchasing the bag. I expected this to be taken care of pretty quickly through the Eagle Creek warranty program but found out shortly after returning my bag for service that it could take 6-7 weeks before it is returned but they could "try to expedite it once it's in the system". Not sure if Eagle Creek considers that an acceptable turn around time but I bought the bag because I believed it would last, not because I could afford to be without it for months at a time. I've enjoyed the bag when I was able to use it but proceed with caution if you actually use it on a regular basis.

Total Disappointment

By Kristen

from San Francisco

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac AWD Carry-On Suitcase:

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.

Just doesn't fit enough stuff for the space.

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac AWD Carry-On Suitcase:

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.

Impressed with the Tarmac Carry-on

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac AWD Carry-On Suitcase:

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.

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac AWD Carry-On Suitcase:

Can't wait to pack this bag for a trip to Key West in late October.
Carry on size, but with the use of Eagle Creek pack-it's, I should be able to get everything I
need for this trip in this bag.

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac AWD Carry-On Suitcase:

Purchased the domestic size and still a little smaller than I had imagined. That being said, will fit everywhere and keep me from packing too heavy! Great quality and rolls like a dream.

Comments about Eagle Creek Tarmac AWD Carry-On Suitcase:

On the upside, we have been satisfied with the repair/return policy BUT we feel we shouldn't have to replace the bags so often. My boyfriend and I travel professionally, on average twice a month, and we have had multiple repairs and replacements to both our bags since we bought them in 2015. We had to replace a zipper (fortunately we were teaching 20 miles away from their SoCal headquarters so it was done while I waited) and gotten multiple replacement bags due to fractures in the plastic by the handles. Now one of the wheels has nearly torn free of the bag due to fractures at the base. I haven't found a better, more durable alternative so we keep returning these for repairs and replacements, but it just doesn't seem right.
