  • The Fortis is rated better than the EXO.
  • In total, we have checked and analyzed 3,327 reviews of the two bags.

Only the EXO is available in these colors:

The ebags Fortis and EXO models are reinforced, TSA-friendly, rolling luggage bags of similar dimensions and quality.

The only notable differences between the two bags are located in their respective exteriors and rolling wheels. The running theme of the EXO's design appears to be oriented towards durability and lifetime use, with its inclusion of double-wheel casters, internal support plates, and external chrome hardware.

Alternatively, the Fortis is more user-friendly with its customizable (but comparatively less-reinforced) exterior and recessed wheel casters, which allow for maximum case size and smooth motion at the expense of longevity.
