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.

Everything you expect...and more!!!

Have been seeing this advertised for some time now and really wanted it. I have to admit it's the most expensive suitcase I've ever purchased. I mean I can buy a whole set for less than what it costs to buy 1. And while I think it's still too high a price, I must say it's the coolest, most practical bag I've ever owned. The only reason I'm taking a star off is due to the high cost of the item, but also because the box it comes in clearly states the name of the item and this was a birthday gift and I was not home when the package was delivered so that was very disappointing that the packaging wasn't more discreet. Other than that it's a dream suitcase.

Good Product

It was a bit of a problem getting delivery and that was frustrating but the company took care of me for the extended wait and were very professional with regard to correcting the problem so KUDOS for that. The product itself is WAYYY KOOL... Figuring out the locking mechanism was aa bit confusing so more info included in the product box would be helpful. Diagrams perhaps. All in All I cant wait to give it a whirl on my next trip as I travel quite regularly. Thank you for all your efforts to correct shipping issues.

I'm an over packer by nature , these Gem just changed my life completely, no more over packing, the best part is being to see what I've packed lol !!

Great little carry on!

First trip with this carry on. Let me start by saying how light and easy to maneuver this is, and how well it fits in an overhead bin. But - I really wanted to use the fold out organizer and was not able to with my laptop in the front section as then the space the organizer needs is too full to fit. But - overall I really like it and next time I will just put my laptop in my back pack and organize away!
