Travel light(er) with Tarmac.
Redesigned for 2013, this Eagle Creek favorite has less weight and more durability, making it the ideal all-purpose bag. Whether you're visiting Nana in Kentucky or finally taking that Paris trip, Tarmac will get you there with ease. A detachable cargo net can be used for internal compression or external storage, and the Coat Keeper™ feature secures outerwear to the top of the bag for easy access--no more hunting for your hoodie in the middle of the terminal. Bi-Tech™ and Bi-Tech™ Armor fabrics provide extreme abrasion and weather resistance, and the ultra-rugged wheels are protected by sturdy wheel housings--because you never know! An expandable main compartment adds 15% more packing space when you need it, so whether you're hauling seven batches Nana's peanut butter cookies or $200 worth of Ladurée macarons, the Tarmac's got you covered.

"We ordered two 2013 Tarmac 25 for the first time from this dealer. One came in with defect so I called up the following Monday to complain. I was apprehensive about any hassles associated with the return and exchange process. Well they listened attentively and made it no hassle for me other than re-box the defect one and return it via Fed Ex using the pre-paid shipping label they emailed me. The new suitcase arrived five days after the call in excellent condition. I was happy. "

"A great bag. Replaced an older, heavier Travelpro. Was initially a little concerned about the soft side construction, but this bag traveled three weeks through India with me, on and off boats, trains, and buses, and it performed wonderfully. Others suffered broken wheels and difficulty pulling their bags over rough surfaces, but the wheels on this bag are tough and make it easy to roll on any surface. Very easy to pack..I used the Eagle Creek packing system which maximized space and minimized weight. Managed to stay under the 30 pound weight limit for in country Air India flights. I paired it with the matching International 20" Wheeled Carry On. The buckle system to attach the smaller bag was a little awkward, but allowed both bags to sit firmly on the ground with no tipping when stopped. Will be ordering another for my husband, who insisted upon dragging his old Travelpro on the trip but now wants one like mine!"

"This is the fourth one of these suitcases we have ordered. They hold a lot more than the 22" but don't feel as enormous as the 28".
We bought one for each of our children, for when they fly home! And one each for us when we travel overseas.
We like the coat attachment, pocket for computer or reading material. Easy to roll, and light weight to lift.
I bought this for my husband for his retirement trip.

"Purchased Eagle Creek Exploration 4 Tarmac 25 for an upcoming 3 week trip to Europe, but have used it on shorter trips in the USA. Bag is well designed and the zippers and wheels are great. "

"Overall I am very satisfied with this model of Eagle Creek luggage.
The storage space is sufficient for a one week stay. The zippers perform very well. The wheels are well secured."

"In my work, we are extremely limited to just over 30 lbs, for EVERYTHING on the helicopter flight to the ship off coast of Brazil - so weight is critical. However, rugged durability is important as well. After much research, I chose Tarmac 22. It has the perfect combination of features (pockets, quality zippers, good wheels, sturdy handle) and durability.
It would be perfect if it was a little lighter. However, lighter bags I researched and inspected all appeared to be much less durable - lighter fabric, crappier zippers, un-reinforced corners.
I think the Tarmac 22 is the best choice for wheeled carry-on.
The people at Luggage Base gave excellent service. Bag was well packed, and arrived on time. Price was about 25% less than buying locally. I will buy from them again."
