    Back in April 2009 I bought 2 of the "Eagle Creek Hovercraft 22" Carry On" suitcases on Amazon, based on a friend's recommendation. At $169 the price was pretty good. Fantastic suitcase. Really well made, strong materials, just a great product all around. 5 stars. So when I needed another suitcase I knew what I wanted. I searched Amazon for "Eagle Creek Hovercraft 22" Carry On" and the only bag that came up was this bag. Looking at the photos and specs, it seemed like it was the same suitcase, albeit for $80 more. Maybe a tiny change to the exterior color, but other than that, the same. Worst case, I get a great suitcase that costs $80 more than it did 22 months ago. So I ordered one and it just arrived.

    WHAT A PIECE OF JUNK. The quality went from 5 stars to 1. The zippers are cheap, the fabric cheap, the wheels cheap (gone are the solid roller blade type of wheels and in their place are larger plastic like wheels). Inside what used to be high quality mesh pockets have been replaced with a thicker cheap mesh, the kind you might find in a freebie gym bag or similar promotional giveaway item. Or to put it another way, this is like the kind of off-brand or no-name (pretending to be a brand name) bag you find at a big retailer discount store (you know, the one that has lots of falling prices). When you compare this bag to the other cheap luggage those stores sell, it looks pretty good. But then after you use it a couple of times things start to break. But put this bag next to the earlier 2 bags I bought in 2009 and it becomes painfully obvious how awful this new bag really is.

    Side by side, the 2 year old bags look, feel, and function like THEY were the ones that cost a lot more (and not just $80 more, but hundreds more).

    I've flown with this bag about 7 times and have been forced to check it as too large for carry-on 3 times - and these were not tiny regional turbo props, either (most recent plane was an Airbus 330), nor was the bag overstuffed. Disappointing, as I bought it so that I would not have to check it, and I accepted the relatively high price of the bag as what I had to pay to get a quality bag that met my needs. I should have paid a bit more attention to the weasel words "Sized to meet most carry-on requirements" in the text.

    Otherwise it is a nice bag, well built and rolls nicely.

    Edit to add: this last time, when I got home I emptied it and measured it: in the product description it says "9.5 x 22 x 14 inches" - but I believe those are the inside dimensions of the case, as the exterior, when completely empty and zipped closed, is 10 x 23.5 x 14.25". This may be a game ALL luggage manufacturers play with the airlines, but the airlines are getting increasingly picky, so buyer beware.

    This is a decent case for the price, though it's not ideal for a frequent business traveler.

    PROS: It's light. The design and construction of the wheels and handles are solid and it rolls easily. The outside pouches are well designed for each access, which you need in navigating the airports. It fits perfectly in overhead bins, with the wheels out, as the flight attendants insist. The tapered top makes it work really well for carry-on.

    CONS: When positioned on its back and the main top flap is unzippered and opened, it tends to sag into the case. In addition, the zippered pouch on the inside of the main flap has disappointingly small access to the storage space. This is the major design flaw in this luggage. When you're in a hotel room, you typically arrange your suitcase on one of those luggage stands, open the main top flap and lean the flap vertically against the wall. Rarely do you get the luxury of having the top flap laid all the way out flat unless you put it out on the bed or the floor. With the Hovercraft top flap standing perpendicular, it tends to sag back into the case. Since the zippered opening is at the top end of the flap, the contents of the pouch tend to slide down and out the top opening if it's unzipped. If the zipper had been positioned across the long side of the flap, access to the pouch would have been much easier. As it is, the pouch becomes minimally useful for storage or use on the road. Also, there are cinch-down straps inside the body of the case which are also not optimally designed for this arrangement where the top flap stands perpendicularly open.

    Overall, this is a decent case for size and weight, but disappointing for usability and ergonomics.

    If you are even thinking about buying eagle creek travel gear. Do it. It will be the best luggage purchase you will ever make and most likely the last one as well. The Hovercraft 22" upright is one of the most well build pieces of luggage I have ever seen. Compare it to a cheap big box store suitcase and the quality of the eagle creek will justify its high price. I felt alright spending almost $200 for this bag because it has a lifetime "No Matter What" guarantee from eagle creek. I read stories from people who were able to get their bag repaired or replaced for free after it was damaged while traveling. I am impressed how reinforced this bag is. You can tell they thought of every scenario where a bag could get hurt and put in some extra protection. The inside is nothing special really, just the typical open hole for packing. However, I use the eagle creek pack it system with mine and it helps to organize and make it easy to find/unpack things from the large interior compartment. I plan to buy eagle creek again when I need a larger piece of luggage, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for some quality travel gear.
