Recommendation for carry-on luggage - Page 5

post #61 of 81
it would be more credible if after 30 years of knowing the brand Tumi, you could spell it

Yummi in my Tummi (sorry I had to) I think cglex makes a pretty cogent point about the roller B&Rs though, and it seems this is a common complaint. On the one hand, they allow a true flat-pack experience. OTOH, they give up precious interior room. Solution? Don't buy a roller The main advantage of B&R over Tumi/Hartmann? Warranty. And of course price...

Cglex, having the bars inside may give you a few more centimeters of packing space for small items. However, I would much rather pack less in my suitcase than go through the trouble of steaming or ironing my wrinkled clothes when I have a meeting to rush to. So, I would definitely choose wrinkle-free packing over a little extra space. Plus, I am beginning to believe that Briggs and Riley offer the best warranty on luggage right now. Where Tumi offers 5 year warranty on their bags and covers airline damage only in the first year, BR's "Simple as that" warranty covers all kinds of damage for the life of the bag. This to me translates to peace of mind!

When I travel for a full week, I am already forced to pack less, the question is how much less.

I haven't had a problem with wrinkles with a properly packed bagged with the frame on the inside. The B&R approach is easier, however. Warranty doesn't matter when the suitcase breaks on the road. To the extent that Hartmann and Tumi sill have bolts instead of rivots, they are field repairable.

I have finally placed an order for the 20" Verb Fuse on the Briggs and Riley website. It should be delivered to me sometime next week. I am really excited about the bag and can't wait to use it for my next trip. I'll post my experience once I return from my first trip with the bag!

Saimike, I have been following Flyertalk as well and the threads over there and Styleforum helped me finally decide on Briggs and Riley Verb Fuse. I think both these forums are great avenues to do some serious research on luggage!

Don't know if the OP is still looking, but I picked up a Mandarina Duck Work Trolley for $250 online and love it for shorter trips. http://shop.mandarinaduck.com/us/wor...53V29032.html#

I swear by my Tumi (now called Vapor) hard shell roller. Durable, easy to roll, plenty of space for a carry on, and not too docile. Had it for about 3 years now, travel about twice a month and it's still kicking.

What is your budget?

I was surfing the Hartmann website and saw that they have their20" black polycarbonate roller on sale for $50 (down from $225). It's a "packing case" and not a suitcase per se, so you will not get as much capacity as a typical roller but it looks like it might fit somebody's requirements for a small carry-on roller.
