Yeah, yeah, I know. Your suitcase with the cartoon characters or bunches of flowers never gets lost in the shuffle. But how do you feel about that suitcase when you’re trying to fly First Class or when you check into a 5-star hotel? Somehow, I don’t believe jet-setters like Financial Times’ Tyler Brûlé ever use weird luggage.
But here’s the thing. Have you noticed that most chic luggage is bloodlettingly expensive? Fortunately, there’s eBags to the rescue! I was happy to be hosted to experience it.
The EXO 2.0 Hardside Spinner Carry-On — and I think it looks the most monied in the color silver — has the fantastic engineering of the other eBags. Separate sections, hardy zippers, wheels that go in all directions, section dividers all add up to quality. The front compartment tips out for easy access and features a collapsible laptop pocket with document, pen, and business card holders while the large rear compartment can hold plenty of clothing. It comes in a convenient carry-on size with an adjustable handle and Travel Sentry ® TSA-recognized locks.They stand by their products, too.
Now, the zipper fabric tape does give an eensy-weensy bit of give, but friends, this is hard sided luggage. It won’t stretch into the 4th dimension like canvas luggage. But it’s great for keeping glass, porcelain and other delicate pieces intact while traveling.
Here’s what they say about it:

Designer NotesWe began with one simple question: What are consumers really looking for in hard sided spinner luggage? Smooth stable wheels & a rigid but durable hard shell. We wanted to exceed these expectations. Features like true carry-on dimensions, great hardware, our much acclaimed moveable shelf system for slump-free packing, and bright brilliant rich colors are just a few of the details you’ll find in the EXO 2.0 Hardside Carry-on. Enjoy!
