I travel a lot; usually one international destination a month. So I am always on the lookout for the very best in packing tools — the right luggage, packing cubes, RFID totes and so forth.
My beautiful hard-sided luggage was, shall we say, a little mistreated by several airlines this past year. With each trip, little by little, cracks began to appear until there was a half-dollar-sized hole.
Planning for a trip to South Africa, I was in need to a new piece of luggage. With help from Eagle Creek, I was able to try out their new Gear Warrior™ AWD 26. Let me just tell you, this is truthfully one of the best pieces of luggage I have ever owned.
Some of its features include packing space between the four wheels, expandable main compartment and it holds gear on top of the bag. It has several grab handles, lockable zippers and water repellent fabric which is, by the way, strong and reinforced to assure excellent security and wear.
Many of the same features were used in the construction of my Eagle Creek backpack that I have had for years. I use it to transport my laptop, camera equipment, electrical cords, change of clothes, medications and reading materials. It has held up brilliantly!
When I received the luggage, I read its accompanying materials and saw Eagle Creek also offers a Tube Cube that fits perfectly between the ribs caused by the suitcase handle. I ordered two and they were excellent for socks and other small items, and saved me even more space.
I would recommend the Gear Warrior™ AWD 26 for one week trips and the Gear Warrior™ AWD 29 for two weeks or longer. My trip to South Africa was two weeks and it would have been easier to have the extra room the 29 inch Gear Warrior provides.
I am always impressed with Eagle Creek and can highly recommend their luggage for quality and airline-handling longevity!
