Solgaard Review

I received the Carry-On Closet Plus to review in this article. The Carry-On Closet also comes in a smaller size that is perfect for all flights.

I love their Carry-On Closet Plus because it’s 20% bigger than their normal Carry-On and can fly on most airlines I have status with (ie. Alaska and Delta).

Specs for the Carry-On Closet Plus (Larger, US Domestic size):

  • Dimensions: 22.4″ High, 14.6″ Wide, 9.6″ Deep | 57cm High, 37cm Wide, 24cm Deep
  • Weight: 8.1lbs (+ 3/4lb shelf) 9lbs total | 3.7kg (+0.4kg for shelf) 4.1kg total
  • Volume: 46L

Solgaard Pros

  • Lightweight – The carry-on suitcase only weighs 4.7 kg (7.39 lbs). Most airlines have an allowance of 12kg (26 lbs) per carry-on. My clothes and accessories typically weight 6-7 gk, so there is plenty of space for my belongings.
  • Hardshell Exterior – The exterior is made with an indestructible polycarbonate shell.
  • USB charging port that can be used with Solgaards patented power bank.
  • Sustainably made from 229 used water bottles (5 lbs of plastic) that were diverted from the ocean. 100% of the interior is made from recycled materials.
  • Includes a patented built-in shelving system. This makes it very easy to organize and see your belongings. You can unpack within seconds of opening your carry-on suitcase. The shelving system hangs from the handle when extended and is removable. 
  • Frictionless 360-degree spinner wheels. The spinner wheels are impressively quiet and glide smoothly. There are 8 wheels to help with weight disbursement and smooth traveling.
  • Fully-lined Interior – Fully lined interior includes 2 main compartments and 2 zipper pockets for smaller items.
  • Dual Handles – Two handles at the top and side of the suitcase to easily handle your suitcase.
  • Aluminum trolley bar with four heights. The adjustable luggage handle can be extended to four lengths, making it great for people of different heights.
  • Comes in different colors. Solgaard’s travel suitcases come in various colors including limited colors.
  • Comes with a plastic suitcase cover protector. In the event that I need or can check in my bags, the cover protector keeps my bag from getting damaged by luggage handlers. I love this protector and wish all luxury or expensive suitcases came with one. They really help with keeping your luggage safe and looking new.
  • Comes with a drawstring bag. The drawstring bag is great for stowing away your luggage when not in use.
  • Waterproof – The luggage has seals that prevent water from getting into your suitcase. 
  • TSA Lock – Super easy to set up and keeps my belongings protected while traveling. The lock requires a 3-digit code to access.
  • Some carry-on styles come with a laptop pocket in front.
  • 10-Year Warranty – Their suitcases come with 10-year warranties against manufacturer defects.
  • Free US shipping on orders over $100! Shipping was very fast and my carry-on arrived securely.

Solgaard Cons

  • Expensive – A Solgaard carry-on suitcase will run you $295.
  • Arrived with scuffs. My carry-on arrived with tiny marks and scuffs out of the factory box. I will definitely be using a suitcase cover when I need to check my bag in because the light pink shade will easily get scuffed and dinged.

Hi was considering buying the carry-on plus but my first flight out is going to be on Alaska airlines. According to Alaska Airlines the carry-on plus exceeds their carry on size limit. I read your blog and it said you had status regarding Delta and Alaska. Do you happen to know if they would allow the carry-on plus. Thank you for your time.

It fits overhead. I've taken my suitcase on an Alaska flight and they didn't deny me. I would take a chance and bring it with you.
