Tumi or Rimowa

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Dear All, I would appreciate your valuale feedback through what you have experience with your luggage.

I am planning to get a cabin size and maybe a 29" as well. I have been to both Tumi and Rimowa shops and both brands gave me 2 different opinions of them .I found Tumi to be more functuional with the suit hanger compartment, extentable etc whereas Rimowa was more of durable and looks. Tumi seems to be more expensive compoare to the Salsa range of Rimowa too.

Which one should I get?

Why not the best of both?

Cabin trolly= Tumi, much more functional and lightweighted.

29"= Rimowa Salsa, even fragile items like bottles can be transported secure.

Isn't cabin size doesn't really restrict of weight and more particular about size? From my theory(which might be wrong) a Rimowa Topas would be good?

Salsa seems to be made in very thin plastic like material, will it be good for check in that is going to be abused by the airport crew throwing left right centre?

Get a Rimowa Salsa in black with 4 wheels. Rimowa is better and to my knowledge is the most lightweight suitcase around.

i have a rimowa cabin trolley. it's my fav piece of luggage. i pack very light though and i can travel with only that for less than 1 week trips. i also have a briggs and riley set in olive for longer trips. i went with briggs though because they have something other than black.

I would go with Rimowa polycarb case. Suit hanger is useless. Just get full canvas bespoke suits using the heavier or high twist cloths, fold them in the luggage, steam them in the shower and hang them overnight when you get to your destination.

What i really dislike about the Rimowa, is the fact there are no exterior pockets, to quickly store something like a magazin or a small purchase typically made at airports.

Beside that is a wonderful piece of luggage

For a hard case luggage i guess this is something have to live without..

If you want a hardcase, wasn't that clear in your first post, then it' s an easy decision, rimowa by far!

I have the Rimowa Salsa De Luxe in brown and I love it. It is by far the best suitcase for long trips that I have ever had. It is incredibly light weight so I am able to pack a lot more without having to worry about going over the weight limit, that is set by airlines. My bag has been all over the world and it has stood up well to regular beating that suitcases receive during travel.

Sounds like a good idea to get a Deluxe...
I am planning to get a topas for carry on and a Deluxe which is lighter for check in..
