Best of the Best
An item achieves "Best of the Best" distinction when eBags customers give it exceptionally high marks in their post-purchase reviews. In order for an item to be "Best of the Best," it must meet the following criteria:
The overall rating must be 4.5 out of 5 stars or better.
90% or more of customers must say they would recommend it.
"This case is light and very durable! The zippered compartments allowed me to stay very organized. It didn't hurt that it looked different from all of the other cases at baggage claim either."
"Haven't taken a trip with the bag yet but it is hard-sided, light and beautiful! There are not many organizing features inside: shoe storage, zippered storage, etc. but recognizing it coming off the baggage carousel will be easy!"
