USB Charging

Let the other guys fight over the outlet. Never miss a charge with your own battery anywhere you go. Removable means it's TSA + airline approved.

Two Oversized Wheels

Four flimsy wheels that occupy packing space are out. Two big, sturdy, all-terrain wheels that free up 20% more volume are in. Best of all, their large diameter shifts the center of gravity upward.

Assisted Compression

Sitting on your suitcase to stuff it closed is not a good look. Compressing it down with a simple click is classier. (And way easier). 

Laptop + Tablet Sleeve

Where do you put your gadgets in hardside luggage? Trick question, you don't. Marlon's padded sleeves protect and give you easy access to your electronics. 

35% Expansion

What's better than the most spacious carry-on in the market? Expansion for even more space when you need to fit that one last thing.

Get this bag

I recently came across Marlon in a T&L article and was intrigued by the design. I suspected the bigger wheels would be easier to roll and the pockets were well distributed based on what I saw. Happy to say I was right! This bag is amazing - don't think twice if you travel a lot, you'll love it

First trip with my Marlon

This Labor Day weekend I went on my first trip with my Marlon. I was able to pack everything that I needed along with several of my son’s extra clothing. I love the wheels and the long handle. The bag looks great, very sleek and modern. The only complaint I have it that the handle on top of the bag could be a bit larger. It is not that easy to grab it and lift the bag up a flight of stairs. Otherwise I love my Marlon.


Well designed suitcase

Just did my first trip - was really easy to pack and roll. I packed my computer and techie stuff up front and had lots of space for clothes and eveything else in main compartment. Seems sturdy, will be using for long time

Excellent case

This bag will almost encourage you to overpack with the amount of room it has. Front sleeve is great for a laptop and the place for the charger on the back is actually large enough for a bigger unit than the one that comes with the case. There was a little bit of a squeak with the wheels at first, but that was gone after the first walk to the boarding gate. It would be nice if there was another handle or place to grab to put it in the overhead bin, but that's the only improvement needed (other than maybe another color - since everyone has black.


Hands Down, the BEST Luggage I've ever purchased (TWICE!)

I originally backed this company when it had both campaigns (for the luggage bag and for the backpack). When the luggage bag came in, I was ecstatic! I got NUMEROUS compliments on the look, style, ease, and sizing of the bag itself. It has gone a LOT of places with me since I had it. When the second campaign started and ended, but my beloved backpack style was not honored, Marlon guaranteed I'd be compensated with that pledge in a future purchase. After some insistent emailing on my behalf, they honored my discount ON TOP of the current discount and I got this bag for a whopping $85! And let me tell you, having my second carry on luggage has given me NOTHING but peace of mind. In fact, I have donated my other bags because this bag LEADS by example. I'm so happy to have found such a perfect luggage carry on bag. I highly recommend it. Super glad I have two bags now, and I appreciate Marlon and the company itself. Not the most vocal via email but they eventually do listen. :D
