Eagle Creek ES3 Tarmac 20 Widebody
This is the right wheeled upright for you if you’re looking for a carry-on that meets most domestic and international standards. The wide body means this bag is shaped for maximum packing space, yet the twenty-inch length will fit into many overhead bins straight in without having to place it sideways.
The newly designed ES3 collection possesses cleaner lines for more traditional travelers. The company has removed or replaced any component that might otherwise weigh down their Tarmac uprights and they have made a major redesign to create more packing space. You see, the original Tarmac uprights once possessed four large-size pockets inside and outside so they took up to 30% of the packing capacity. Now, Eagle Creek has made the series more traditional and left a large cavern in which travelers can pack in. No more gussetted pockets that inhibit travelers from packing into one large space. And hey, we’re all for it at PackingLight.com. We say the simpler the better!
The Tarmac 20 Widebody addresses the needs of professionals and leisure travelers with less of the extraneous adventure stuff like those pesky pockets. As the line has transformed from a bag that someone might take to the Amazon to a bag they take to 90% of the rest of the world, the Tarmac’s durability and lightweight prowess has remained.
State-of-the-art features of the Eagle Creek Tarmac ES3 series include a new Touch Point Radius Handle System which is lighter in your hand by distributing the bag’s weight on the wheels. Beefy ORV (Off Road Vacation) wheels provide smooth and reliable transit over all types of terrain. Unique sole patch corner guards protect critical wear points with TPU (thermo plastic urethane). And perhaps most importantly, large, high-quality zipper coils are well protected off the corners. Finally, a blend of high-tech abrasion and tear resistant materials is exclusively designed by Eagle Creek to meet specific demands of the world traveler. And because different parts of a bag wear differently, Eagle Creek mixes and matches varying weights of fabric to dial up the toughness while dialing down the carrying weight.
