Quality product

Reviewed by Bimmerman from Tennessee on Wednesday, January 1, 2014
I ordered this as a replacement for a well used and excellent Victorinox roller I had taken all around the world. The bags are almost the same size with the Eagle Creek being a little deeper. The Eagle Creek appears to be as well made as the Victorinox with even better storage pockets. Travel will tell if it will stand up to airline abuse as well as the Victorinox did. The EG appears to have better handles and wheels while the zippers (usually the first things to break) are similar between the two bags. Both bags are very light for their size (sub 15 lb. range for either).

The Victorinox had a separate suit storage insert that worked well, the EC does not have this feature (not a deal breaker). The EC does have a stretch insert that is used to lash a jacket to the top of the bag as well as a hideable hangar to hang smaller bags on.. Biggest advantages for the EC is the discounted price from Sierra ($160), amazing for a bag of this quality, and its lifetime warranty, again outstanding for a bag at this price.
