eBags Exo Hardside 24inch

Hello All,

UK frequent traveler for long haul holidays looking for some advice.

Ive been looking at the Exo Hardside spinner and i like the following feature.

Bright colour, red or yellow
four good spec wheels
zip facility
abs casing with a lifetime guarantee

What do you all think of the case, any comments?

any other alternatives?

cheers

Mac

I have this in yellow. It has been on many trips and still looks great. Unless you are really trying (by like carrying bricks or something) it is difficult to get it to weigh more than 40 lbs.

I am very happy with it. I don't really like that it opens into two halves instead of one big packing area but I am over that.

The zipper is the weakest part. It has a tendency to stick.

We have one in black. 3 trips in last few months. Italy for three weeks, weekend in Scottsdale with wife for business & 4 days in LA with wife for business. Worked great. Zippered compartment hold hanging clothes and some shoes. Other side held wife's cosmetics more shoes (Loubotins, Blahniks). I only use this bag when traveling with my wife as I carry-on when solo. She loves the protection for delicate items. I love how much lighter this is than an Andiamo wheeled suiter we have. Great price/value. Recommended.

Thanks for the replies fellow members.\

Ive seen a video that shows its very flexible, one guy stood on the case and it just bent back into shape.

Is the bag big enough for a three week vacation trip,

Are there any other brands that offer the same features?

I ask as it will add a little more to the price when i get it shipped over to England.

thanks

Size wise it's not huge. If you're thinking of one of those very large hard sided rolling bags, this is not it. They could stand to make one at that size point. It's hard for me to say if it will do a 3 week trip as different people travel differently. For someone who is a medium to light packer, probably.

For my wife and I, it was one of two checked pieces for a three week trip. The other was a RedOxx duffel into which we packed cubes of mainly clothing. The roller held some hanging clothes in a sleeve in the lid size, some fragile dress shoes for my wife and other items that needs some hard side protection that we didn't want to pack in a duffel. So it fit our needs well.

Once again thank you for your reply.

To be honest I dont particularly travel heavy. Its the Mrs that does that and she have a much larger suitcase lol.

I also have a North Face Basecamp Duffel Bag which I like very much.


Thank you and if you need any help form the UK side let me know,

Mac
