My Tumi T Techs have been through hell and back and I have been amazed at how well they have held up. I love their FXT line, more higher end than the t tech.

An actual body bag? Maybe you are inviting security to do a search.

Looks like an underexposed x-ray of someone's chest cavity.

I didn't think that... now I do. I'm kinda hurt (even though I don't own one), but you may have just saved me 750 bucks.

Thanks... I guess.

I am guessing this is a Saddleback Leather suitcase, in coffee.

Here's one with a little more taste, from the same company.

Those McQueen cases are absolutely hideous. Looks like something you'd see at Hot Topic. I bought my vintage 70s aquamarine cases off eBay for $75 total. I thought I'd never use them, but I use them all the time.

I do however like the plastic Rimowa I have even better. The plastic ones are extremely light, about half compared to a same size Samsonite, and not as conspicuous as the aluminium variety, thus more likely to end up where it is supposed to. They seem to be very durable as well, mine still looks almost new after a number of flights that in the past has required a new suitcase.

I travel a good bit. Spending good money on luggage is just plain stupid. It targets the bag for theft and it never lasts, even the fancy LV.

My advice: invest in a good laptop bag, a rollerboard and NEVER EVER CHECK YOUR LUGGAGE.

Also, never buy a dopp kit. Complete waste of cash. Buy a box of Ziploc quart bags. They fit in luggage easier and are far more functional all around.

For carry on I like some nice leather luggage but for bags that I check I have a hard time handing over a beautiful leather luggage.

Floto makes some really nice stuff that is very resonably priced. I have there pisanto duffle.

I got a really good deal on some brooks brothers luggage that I will check in. I got such a great deal I bought 2 for when the first wear out.


I also have a beautiful garment bag I got on amazon.

Not to mention my aldo raffa briefs and duffle.

Basically I went thru a period recently where I was buying leather luggage as much as I can.


My absolute favorite is the aldo raffa bags. It's natural leather and each one has a fabulous feel to it. Makes it seem like something really special. http://www.aldoraffa.it/product.htm


OK I will shut up but I do enjoy buying nice luggage.
