Unpack In Seconds

Our unique patented closet has six shelves, a compression strap to maximize storage, and is cleverly weighted to stay balanced when you're using it.

Your Closet, Your Terms

Your Closet, Your Terms

Every trip is different, so we designed the closet to be easily removable. If you need to pack a little extra, plan to go shopping on your trip, or want to hang it from your hotel clothing rack, simply remove it.

USB port on side-panel to charge devices

Charge On The Fly

Charge your devices without tumbling through your belongings. Just connect your charging cord to the port on the side of the suitcase, and power up.

Why We Made It

After three years of living on the road, our Founder Adrian Solgaard, realized that keeping a tidy hotel or hostel room was impossible. 

So he designed the perfect suitcase that he wished that he had during his more nomadic days. 

The Solgaard Carry-On Closet has a patented, built-in six shelf closet system to keep you organized anywhere. The built in closet also acts as a compression cube to help you save space. 

The design and utility of the Carry-On Closet was recognized by TIME Magazine as the Travel Invention of the year in 2018.

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. This can be done two ways; hanging from the back pocket on the shelf, or hanging from the clip on strap.
3) Pack each shelf to 60-70% full.
4) To close, lower the shelf into the suitcase, compress into place, and close the suitcase.

When you arrive at your destination, simply repeat these steps.

Can’t Wait to Use It!

I have just received my new Solgaard Carry-On Closet and I am impressed by the quality of the unit and the ability to organize and store my items. I just ordered the Checked Closet, which will do the same. I can’t wait for my first trip to put these in action…

Hot Ticket!

My new Carry-On Closet is making life organized and easy--2 things a traveler needs for sure! Great quality and easy to move through a busy airport. I'm loving the closet feature--all my items are easy to pack and access on a hectic business trip.

This is a fantastic suitcase! I ordered 2 for my sons and they love them - they even use the closet insert to stay organized! Worth the money!

I freaking love this suitcase!

Ok so I've never been one to gush about a suitcase I mean come on its a box (hopefully on wheels) that you drag your stuff in, how special could it be; but this case, omg I love this case! First off the thing that caught my eye was that closet system. My girlfriends and I love to take little weekend trips here and there, to the beach or to the mountains, now when we go I don't have to unpack my stuff when we get there and pack up again before we go! I just hook that closet up and I'm set with my "drawers" loaded with each day's needs. Time to go, no worries just collapse it down and close the door and I'm done! If you've never seen someone get jealous over a suitcase before just wait! This thing is not just easy to pack /unpack though, oh no! This suitcase rolls so smoothly over the crappiest of sidewalks I don't need my cane! It feels very stable and secure when traveling. I don't have the slightest concern about it opening on me, about the zipper popping and my stuff going everywhere, not even any worries about how it's going to handle my "lovingly" and oh so "gently" throwing it into the back of the truck! This case hasn't been with me long yet but I've been putting it through its paces, nothing has slowed it down. There's only one thing about it that didn't work the way I hoped... The texture on the surface of the bag, while great for taking a beating, didn't take stickers very well lol Ya, I can't say enough good things about my case! Thank you!
