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.

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.

Enjoying my purchase

So far am loving my suitcase though out of the bag it had a little scuff with a tiny strand of plastic. Not a big deal. Only bummer was having to contact customer service multiple times including to remind them to refund me for a switch I made because of the barge/low supply issue. But they were responsive and ultimately resolved the issue.

I finally got to travel with my carry-on closet and it was everything I expected and more. It felt great arriving at my destination and quickly "unpacking". I can't wait to continue traveling and packing!!

Helps me travel and helps the environment

This is really cool, giving me the option to use it the old fashioned way or with the Carry-on closet. The one hand release is great. The included laundry bag comes in handy too. It rolls around super easy and has a comfortable soft handle. Being able to carry the battery bank inside it and not have to pull it out to charge my phone, just plug in on the outside is great. Love it. And even better is that because of this product 5lbs of plastic bottles were removed from the ocean.
