WJ Tested: eBags EXO 2.0 Hardside 24″ Spinner Review

“A lightweight checkable spinner that wouldn’t easily exceed the 50 pound limit.”

eBags Description:

The eBags EXO 2.0 Hardside 24″ Spinner is built to the highest quality standards using lightweight materials, rock-solid construction, and a unique exterior sure to get noticed on the carousel.

Product Details:

  • 100% Polycarbonate shell – the most durable material choice for hardside luggage
  • Polished/Debossed diamond pattern provides a brilliant shine and reduces visible abrasion
  • Overall exterior dimensions: 27″ x 18″ x 11.5″
  • Double-wheel casters provide smooth stable motion and are secured with internal support plates for superior durability
  • Packing compartment is divided into two sections: Full-mesh zip-around cover for the perfect combination of containment AND visibility. Open compartment with our innovative removable/adjustable shelf AND 5-point tie straps
  • Grey nylon lining – because who needs another black interior in a suitcase?
  • Telescoping trolley handle is fully recessed for maximum protection & durability when checked
  • Adjusts to 3 heights for optimum control and maneuverability: 44.5″, 40.5″, 36.5″
  • Large #10 self-healing coil zipper – the strongest available
  • Patent-pending cross-over zipper pullers are flush-mounted
  • Flush-mounted Travel Sentry ® TSA-recognized 3-dial combination lock for safe/secure packing
  • Side grab handle lays flat and is attached with an over-sized support plate for added durability
  • Four molded feet when you need to set it on its side
  • All component parts are attached with removable fasteners, in case of any needed repairs


  • Lightweight construction for the size – 9lb 8oz
  • Fun exterior colors (not just boring black)
  • Easy to pack and organize contents
  • Recessed/lie-flat handles don’t get caught on machinery when in transit
  • TSA lock is built-in (can’t be taken off and not lost)
  • Easy to identify on the airport luggage carousel
  • Double-spinner wheels provided stability for standing the bag up – it didn’t tip over when upright and full
  • Extendable handle has 3 heights


  • Spinner wheels get in the way in the trunk of a car
  • Spinner wheels get “stuck”, don’t “glide”, and made the bag difficult to maneuver
  • TSA lock is difficult to use – zipper pulls need to be criss-crossed and take a lot of manipulation to fit
  • TSA won’t know how to re-lock the zipper if they inspect the bag, so are likely to leave it unlocked and unsecure

Bottom Line:

Jill used the eBags EXO 2.0 Hardside 24″ Spinner luggage (in purple) on an extended trip (109 days) to Europe and South Africa. During this time the bag was checked-in for 12 flights with various airlines, stuffed in the trunk of numerous rental cars/taxis, hauled on and off buses and trains, and was wheeled along a variety of surfaces over probably 6 miles/9 km. The bag itself held up very well and came back looking good as new. The wheels weren’t that easy to push on uneven or carpeted surfaces, so it doesn’t really suit our travel style – we like to take public transport as often as we can. When the bag was filled to capacity (around the 23 kg/51 pound limit for most European and International flights), it was difficult to maneuver on the spinners and easier to pull on just 2 wheels. Turns out we’re not big fans of spinner wheels – they just get in the way when trying to stow the bag in the trunk of a car – but many people are, so this piece of luggage has a lot of positives going for it. The contents of the bag did remain dry during a huge downpour – we couldn’t say the same for other luggage we were using.
