Surprisingly spacious
PROS: We haven't taken our Tarmac roller on a trip yet, but it's packed (along with a new Tarmac weekender bag and small EC duffel) and I am thrilled with how much stuff is in there. 4 days worth of cool weather clothing for myself, husband, and our 6 yr old...in two carry ons (smaller than regulation). The duffel is not full and Small enough to fit under the seat as a personal item. We also used ECs pack it system. Love the look... And they seem very durable, and wipeable. Can't wait to try them out. Love the that EC has their No Matter What Guarantee. Paying a little more will hopefully be worth it. luggage pros was great- super fast service. Est. time was like a week. We received our bags within about 3 days.

CONS: None

The Gold Standard
PROS: The Tarmac 20 is just an awesome little wheeled carryon—dare I say the gold standard. Inexpensive, functional, durable, and most importantly, fits the smallest overhead compartments like those found on the Embraer CRJs. With the Pack-It system and some creative minimalism, one could easily pack this bag for a 3–5 day business trip.

CONS: The only con I've found is in the inline skate type wheel; namely the bearings. If exposed to cold for longer than an hour (20° or less), the grease in the bearings becomes gummy and the wheels won't roll smoothly (or at all) until warmed up. Just a word of caution if storing the luggage in the underbelly of a bus or in a garage in the middle of winter.
