Turn heads at the airport with clean aesthetics, streamlined features and rugged-ready constructions in this carry-on travel piece. A robust exterior keeps your system well protected from the rigors of domestic travel, but is more than capable of the beating that a multiple leg journey that lands you on a gravel runway in the Yukon can dish out.

This is a really high-quality piece of gear. It's tough, easy to pack, smooth to haul around, and attractive (and if you load it somewhat carefully, it doesn't tip). It's going to be making many more trips between Montana and Alaska!

Haven't traveled with it yet but this bag seems to be of great quality !! I did put some items in the bag to see if it tips and it does seem to fall over with weight involved. Maybe suggest a four wheeled version where two wheels can be extended or retracted based on needs.

The construction and attention to detail of the rambler carry on is awesome. It’s great for overnight road trips as well air travel.

Need to redesign to a four wheeled version so the bag will stand up on its own. Falls over with just a little bit of fill. Great looking but flawed when it comes to function.

Very nice bag in every way....


Everything else about it is so nice that I keep using it anyway. But I will buy a new one the moment they redesign and fix this issue.

One of my most favorite carry ons I’ve ever had. Like everyone else, it tips easily however if it was a 4 wheel design like so many others I wouldn’t of wanted it so I guess it’s a give and take. Durable as can be so I have no problem tossing it in the bed of my truck when driving out of state or tossing it on the plane.

The bag is great, My only issue is within the first trip my handle will not stay upright some mechanism broke.

Great quality. It does tip over easily while standing up unless you pack heavy stuff by the wheels. Great functional pockets. Mine is marked up as described in other reviews. My biggest complaint is the single stem handle….I carry my flight helmet in a separate bag and due to the single handle it will not ride on top of the bag. A doubled stemmed handle would make life better for me. I may switch back to my old carry on just for this reason. Bag is extremely dust and water proof!

Biggest pain will not stand up ( one and done ) trip. Sitka always made the best gear but this bag should be redesigned. For the price I'm very disappointed.

As others have said, it tips over very easily no matter how loaded and it gets marked up a lot, I think a darker color would be better like dark brown or black. When collapsing the handle, mine gets hung up frequently and I have to wrestle with it to get it collapsed. Other than that, its very durable and well made.

I've using the Rambler ever since it came out. It's a great carry on when traveling light. My wife takes it as a carry on over her other luggage if she's traveling for work, and both of my kids want one. I wish it was a tad bigger but that's because I overpack.

Excellent bag for a carry on. I fit five pairs of pants, shirts, underwear and socks in it every week. I also carry a laptop, charger, sunglasses and cell chargers and there is room for even more items. With regards about the reviews on the bag not sitting up when packed, you will have no issues at all. You do have to pack it right, but I promise it’s not that hard. Pants on the bottom and shirts on top, works every time!

This is a great carry on bag for air travel with the pocket on top for your phone or plane ticket.

I will start off by saying it is a very well built bag that does perform adequately with just a few nuances that are annoying. The first is what has been stated multiple times, it tips over when loaded no matter how you position the weight. Second is the color gets pretty roughed up but I am not kind to the bag and it has help up like a champ. The one thing that surprised me was the comment from a pilot about what kind of bag it was and really liked it. I also love the little top pocket for holding headphones, tickets, etc. I would buy again and if they come out with a darker color, the wife may get one to. Buy with confidence.

Whether its riding in the bed of the truck or in the overhead of the airplane. This bag does it all and is tough to boot. Only problem is I need another one since my wife has taken over mine.

Full disclosure, I tried this bag but did not keep it. it's a great bag and feels really durable. I think it looks great too. The one issue is the "single pole" telescoping handle - When I slip my backpack (leisure) or work briefcase with "luggage sleeve" over the telescope, it just spins around (down to the ground between me and the roller bag) on the single telescope. Patagonia's small roller had the same issue and they changed the design. change that and I'd buy!

I like the bag very much, I'm back wishing they had one between the small and over sized bag. I used the bag with clothes and at the airport I had to lean it up against the counter or myself because it didn't want to stand. It reminded me of Dan's comment. Great product otherwise. Oh, and if the main compartment could unzip on three sides not just two, even better. I don't know if that request would jeopardize the bags integrity. Thanks

I've used this bag on several trips. It is very durable and looks great. It is a perfect size for a carry on and fits into the overhead compartment of an aircraft with ease. It is balanced perfectly and fits my gear nicely. I've had no issues with the bag standing upright when packed. I recommend this bag for anyone traveling on any mode of transportation.

I work in a airport and handle thousands of bags a week. I purchased the Sitka Rambler after seeing one come through the airport. Like I said I see and handle thousands of bags a week and I have seen every kind of bag imaginable. When. I saw the Rambler I could instantly see the quality over all the other bags. I will be purchasing the larger Nomad soon! No bag is indestructible but the Sitka bags are close. I love my Rambler!

I have been using this as my carry-on luggage for most of the winter. It rolls great, sheds rain/snow, and looks awesome. My one complaint is with the zipper. The weather resistant zipper is tough to work and downright annoying at times. Other than that, I give this one two thumbs up!

Our company, The Hunting Consortium Ltd., purchased several of these for our employees. It's a great lightweight carry-on that truly is rugged. As with all Sitka Gear, the fit and finish and quality of this bag is superior. The wheels are large and strong and the handle is equal. We tear our equipment up and so far this has passed the test for serious international travel. Throughout Asia, Africa, and North America this piece has held up through it all! We recently purchased the Nomad which is equally tough and HUGE, great for trophies or a lot of gear since the suitcase itself doesn't weigh anything.

I travel as a part of my job and purchased the Rambler this year. Sitka makes durable gear and this lives up to the Sitka name. The bag gets tossed around in and out of my truck and in the overhead bin of the planes. It is big enough to hold what you need for a 4 day trip. The only concern I had was the effort it took to open and close thes zippers in the beginning. Once I figured out to pull them by the loops and a few times opening and closing- it became much easier. Would also like to see these avail in the Optifade Camo pattern. Great Job Sitka.

Trip one with the Rambler was a success! Solid build and sharp aesthetics make this a must have lightweight travel mate. Durable and rugged material paired with heavy duty zippers make this a great travel companion that is big enough to carry enough stuff for 3 or 4 days travel yet small enough to "carry-on" and fit in an overhead bin on a plane. Heavy stitched carry handles and an inner pocket lined with a touch of "concealment class". Whether rolling it through a large airport on an urban excursion or packing it onto a riverside rock runway to board the piper cub, you will be proud to haul your gear in this bomber! As a GORE gear tester, my only suggestion to make it perfect because of the size, backpack style shoulder straps. "Turning traveling into a picnic".
