  • The Level8 Road Runner Carry-on Review

Last Updated: 13 June 2024


Travellers like me need a carry-on suitcase that allows us to bring along a laptop that we can quickly take out if we need to work. In the past, I had a carry-on suitcase that had come a long way with me on my travels, but its big drawback was that it didn't allow me to take the laptop out easily. To do so, I had to open the case wide, which could have been more practical in airports or on the train. My travelling has become much easier thanks to Level 8's excellent suitcase. This review will show you why we recommend the Road Runner Carry-on with Laptop Pocket.

The Road Runner Carry-on

Given the price of good-quality luggage, it is wise to carry a little research before making a big purchase.

If you’re on the hunt for a new suitcase to bring on your next trip, LEVEL8 is an excellent choice and the Road Runner Carry-on with Laptop Pocket is one of its range.

We ordered the Road Runner Carry-on online and received them in good time. The suitcase was delivered to us in a large box. It was in perfect condition.

Top quality materials

The LEVEL8 Road Runner Carry-on with Laptop Pocket uses Germany-based Bayer Makrolon® materials, which means the cases are durable, incredibly lightweight, and waterproof. In addition, the diamond-shaped textures come with anti-scratch surface technology.

The wheels

The rubber-padded double-wheels will endure the cobblestone streets of the hilltop villages of Provence as they are very durable and manoeuvrable. And, icing on the cake, the 360° spinner wheels are quiet to roll!

You can smoothly glide the case next to you or behind you across airport floors to your gate number.

Dimensions and colours

The suitcase comes in two colours: Black and Navy. We choose black.

The suitcase is a carry-on cabin-friendly case with the following dimensions:

  • cm: 36 cm x 23 cm x 54 cm
  • inches: 14.5” L x 9.31” W x 21.9” H. 
  • weight is 3.7 kg or 8.9 lbs.

⚠️ Make sure you check the limits of a large cabin bag. I found out that it exceeds the limits of a large cabin bag onboard Easyjet by only a few centimetres.

However, the suitcase is ideal for short weekend trips by train or coach.

The 20'' Road Runner Carry-on has a capacity of 38 litres.

Lock and handles

The set includes a TSA-approved combination lock (both the front pocket and main body can be locked and secured), a durable telescopic handle (4 height levels), and top and side carry handles. These additional grips come very helpful when you need to climb stairs.

The front compartment feature

The front compartment with a laptop sleeve makes the Road Runner Carry-on very popular. You can easily access your laptop, Ipad, headphones, charging cables, and plugs. And the lock makes your belongings secure.

In fact, the things you usually carry in another bag (i.e. a backpack) can be put down on this outer layer: laptop, passport, etc., which is very convenient at the airport security check.

Inside the suitcase

Organising your things is easy since there are zipped dividers, pockets, and straps.

  • Mesh dividers on both sides with double zipper pulls.
  • Two zipped pockets on the left mesh divider, making it easy to organise and compress your things/clothes.
  • The right side has a nylon luggage strap with a quick-release buckle under the mesh.
