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!

Traveler's Dream!!!

Let's be honest. I HATE hardshell luggage. Never found a piece that worked well for my travel needs...until now. The closet option allowed me to unpack in a snap (pun intended). The suitcase itself is fairly lightweight but durable. It definitely handled the first round of international travel like a boss. I'm an habitual overpacker, and it handled my ridiculous load of clothes for my 8 day trip. I also love that it was made from recycled materials but it's not flimsy like some recycled products can be. I'd definitely recommend this to the avid travel.

Carry-On Closet

I just received my Carry-On and I’m very pleased with the overall dynamics of it! I travel often for work and with the current issues happening in the airline world thus far with missing and delayed luggage a carry-on is the way to go so you have to get a dependable one and this is it! Wish me luck on my first trip with to Frankfurt!!

First Trip

Wow! Having the ability to pack the amount of clothes the carry on suitcase was unreal. I went to a conference for a week and everyone asked me was that the luggage Yep, that's all that I have. Solgaard is the way to go. I really love this thing.

carry on closet

Overall impression great. Packing is so-so, not as much room as I hoped for. It will take some getting use to. The straps on the side could be wider so when you compress it, the shelves themselves would stay in place and not slide. Hard to close. I have watched their YouTube video several times to make packing adjustments. I like taking the unit out and hanging it in the hotel closet, so convenient.
