I'm like George Clooney in 'Up in the Air'.....If it doesn't fit in my carry-on I don't take it. I have a huge distrust for Airports/Cruise Terminals

ZERO Halliburton was sold to a Japanese luggage company in the mid 2000s, but afaik, it was just one of those strategic purchases - companies change hands all the time. I certainly haven't heard of any drastic decrease in quality. I mean, it's not like they will fall apart. Maybe if you are throwing them off a bridge onto a moving train, you might worry about incremental changes in durability, but I assume you won't be doing that. I mean, even James bond needs to get into casual clothes and stop sipping cocktails when he does that type of shit.

I've never seen a Rimowa without wheels.

That said, every frequent traveler that I know uses a roll. Unless you have porters and a private jet, running between terminals to make a connection, or even just getting your shit from security to the farthest gate from security, is a pain, without wheels. Fuuma and I both use a Briggs&Riley. No, they are not beautiful, but they are durable. Softsided cases don't crack or warp - if a hardsided case warps, you are shit outta luck - and ballistic nylon withstands most types of force better - a knife being the exception, in which case, your luggage is the least of your worries.

Talked to Ben - there should be an awesome interview with Karlo Steel of Atelier New York coming soon. Some of his opinions may surprise you.

sneak peek of an idea that will hopefully turn out cool smile.gif

anyone got any tips for some dark black fabric, preferably a little sturdy but not so thick it'd be hard to sew using a "normal" sewing machine? or is cotton the only option besides nylon/leather?

Hrmmm I have some janky hand me down Victorinox (maybe knock-off). Maybe I'll upgrade it to one of the B&R discontinued sale items. A lot of my friends who travel nonstop for work are big fans of their various carry ons. Can't expense it though foo.gif

I just thought it was weird how I have no problem spending 1k on a jacket, but luggage or another bike for a grand seems excessive.

All depends on how much you travel I guess. nod[1].gif

Muji makes decent luggage IMO. I always check mine because I'm lazy (and typically bring a suitcase big enough to bring back vinyl/clothes/etc) and I've yet to have a problem in 3+ years. Light aluminum shell, super-smooth wheels (as someone who used to fly twice a week that anti-wheel thing sounds absurd. Airports are annoying enough as it is), For $200ish you could do much worse
