Frequently Asked Questions

Shelving System How to operate

To operate the shelving system, pack with the shelf fully extended at home.
1) Open the suitcase door 90 degrees. Clip together both hanging latches to keep suitcase from extending further than 90 degrees.
2) Lift the shelf up and hang from the suitcase handle.
3) Pack each shelf to 60-70% full.
4) To close, lower the shelf into the suitcase, compress into place, and close the suitcase. Use the compression straps if you're packing in a lot of bulky items.

When you arrive at your destination, simply reverse these steps to unpack!

Good cases. Just a bit small on the check-in.

I like the luggage overall. Just one complaint. That is the check-in closet which is represented as a large piece of luggage would be considered a medium/small check-in bag by other luggage manufactures. I feel that I paid for a large bag and would like to have a large bag. It would also be nice if the carry-on closet had hooks in the shelving system had hooks like the check-in closet's system to make it easier to hang it on the clothing bar in the hotel room closets. Truthfully, I like everything about the luggage except for the small size of the check-in closet. I they made a larger "full size" closet I would purchase that immediately.

Built Like a Tank

The Carry-On Closet Plus feels sturdy and rugged and I can't wait to travel with it in the near future. I was pleased to discover you can simultaneously charge two devices from the pass-through charging port (1 USB-A and 1 USB-C), not just one. The collapsible hanging closet shelf was a little smaller depth-wise than I expected so I will definitely need to adjust my packing technique.

A closet that glides

I wanted to know if this carry on life’s up to the hype and it definitely does! I travel a good bit for work and fun. I took it on a 5 day trip to Charleston and had plenty of outfits even enough for 2 extra days. One of my favorite things are the wheels and how they glide. I’m debating getting the check size for longer trips.

I purchased your small carry-on. I don't care for back packs. Why don't you offer a tote bag in the various colours. One that has a slide pocket to go over the handle.
