The Incase EO Hardshell Roller is Carry On Luggage that Fits

Incase EO Hardshell Roller

The carry on luggage regulations have changed and I got tired of trying to jam my too-large luggage into the new regulation system. The last time I forced my luggage so hard that I ripped my fingernail off. It was time for me to upgrade my travel gear. I heard good reviews about Incase travel rollers carry on luggage so I reached out to them to review their EO Hardshell Roller. It’s designed for comfort and sized to fit everything you need for a long weekend, but I managed to fit everything that Athena and I needed for an entire week in Florida and I’m going to fit it all in again to go to Mexico for 8 days. I’m on the road a lot and I needed something reliable. The layout and pockets give me all the space I need and the added comfort touches make it a step above the competition. It’s my new go-to bag.

What’s unique?

The polycarbonate hardshell front is durable. Athena was exhausted when we arrived in John Wayne Airport in Orange County. She was sleeping on the plane but I couldn’t carry her to the car. She sat, facing forward, on the top of the suitcase while I wheeled her out. It might not have been designed as a child’s seat but it’s definitely durable enough to make it work.

Incase EO Hardshell Roller Compartments

The tech compartment fits up to a 17-inch MacBook and opens flat for quick and easy airport screening. Normally, I need to bring my backpack to carry my laptop but it wasn’t necessary with the EO Roller.

The smart organization sections are perfect for toiletries, passports, phones, iPads and other essentials for travel. I packed all of our clothes and all of my tech gear including cameras and I still had room for a few games and toys for Athena.

The handle has a soft, easy grip designed for comfort. Even when the bellhop carried my bag to the room, he commented on the soft handle and maneuverability of the bag.

The bag is small enough to carry on any airline. I wasn’t even questioned about its size and it fit easily in the over-head bin.

What Would I Change?

Overall, I’m extremely happy with the luggage. The only thing I miss about my old bag is the four wheels, making it a little easier to maneuver in the airport and on the plane.

The only way I’ll be changing my bag is if they come out with a four wheel spinner in the future.

What type of bag do you use as a carry-on? Is it time for an upgrade?

    I love the pockets. What a great idea!

  3. I’m with you and love having four wheels that rotate completely now that I’m using a case with that. This looks like a nice option though with the hard front and softer sides.

    I have a four-wheel Samsonite hard side. I love it!

    I’m in the market for a new suitcase, so this is perfect timing. I like the tech compartment and extra organization. I haven’t owned 4-wheeled luggage, so it’s not something I would miss.

    I’ve had my Tumi for over 10 years and I use it at least twice a week, often times more. It is incredibly durable, never seen something like it. The best investment ever. It is light as well and so resistant that I literally drag it up and down staircases without a care in the world. I would recommend Tumi to anyone. It has survived at least other 10 suitcases in the same time 🙂

  11. I’ve never had a hard-shell bag, but this one looks great since it would fit my big, heavy Macbook! Would love to roll that thing around instead of lugging it in my backpack 🙂

    Looks like a great weekender bag. Very organized – which I love in a bag!

    It looks like you can fit a ton in there, and I like that it’s so sturdy. I can see how 4 wheels would be better though.

    Man, I get so tired of having the 2 item rule on planes. I always have a carry-on and a laptop so I have to end up shoving my purse into the luggage or not bring it. I think I need this!
