Eagle Creekâ¿¢ Adventure Rollium Laptop Case
love this product, but....
My three star rating has to do with the size, not the quality and versatility of this bag. I have had this product for over a year and it has been great as my go-to carry-on. It is my second Rollium. I get all of my essentials--computer, iPad, cords, gps, spare shoes, etc.--into it with no problem. The pockets are wonderful. HOWEVER, as of April 19 it no longer meets the size limits for carry-on on United Airlines. They allow 22"H x 9"D x 14"W for a carry-on and 17"H x 9"D x 10"W for a "personal" item. The measurements include wheels and handles. Unfortunately, the 10" depth on this bag rules it out. I found out the hard way and was given a pass on my first trip. And after doing some research on the internet, several other airlines have adopted these limits and the expectation is that the others will follow. Keep in mind--it is not a combined measurement. The actual height, width and depth measurements must meet the guidelines. I sure hope Eagle Creek will adjust the size to what is allowed and come out with another Rollium Laptop Case. I will be first in line to buy it!

With high hopes for this bag to be a weekend carry-all, I was unable to get all my items in it. I doubt that it was designed by frequent female travelers.

Shockingly poor design
I have purchased numerous Eagle Creek products, and have never been disappointed until now. I have contacted Eagle Creek and The Container Store, and I will be returning this bag. There are some good features, but the missing sleeve in the back for stacking on other luggage and the fact that this bag does not "corner" well make it an extreme hassle to fly with. I took this bag on a recent trip from Texas to California and had difficulty maneuvering this bag with my other luggage. IF it had the sleeve in the back for stacking on other luggage and the wheel design that the other bags in this Eagle Creek series have - it would be an awesome bag. I love the padded "hanging" pocket for the laptop.
