It's an Apple sticker that you get with Apple products.

Too bad I already got a Tumi carry-on case or I would have go Globetrotter; their collection are classic and sexy at the same time.

Anyone own one of the Halliburton polycarbonate suitcases?

I was thinking of getting one for my carry-on.

I have been using ZH Aluminum luggage for 10 to 15 years and love it. Very basic internal compartments but whenever an issue came up, ZH was fantastic to deal with. They provided new wheels and a few locking mechanisms no questions asked! If I were buying now, I may look into Rimowa, Tumi Poly or Samsonite Black Label line.

Looking at picking up a Rimowa case tomorrow.
I would appreciate any feedback - 'pro's/con's' on 2 wheels versus 4.

I only had a cursory glance last night.

Thanks

You must get a 4 wheeler, an absolute joy to use.

- Daz, wait till I'm back in HKG next week if you want to have a look at my well travelled Rimowa.
- FWIW - 4 Wheels are the way to go, just so much easy to push when lining up etc.

I have a carbon haliburton briefcase. I don't carry it daily, so I am probably not the best to listen to on durability, but it has been fine for me. I only wish I had bought a bigger one because, being a hardcase, it won't stretch to fit some stuff, so I leave out some stuff.

If you like the Zero at all, overstock.com has amazing prices on them now.

I looked at these two lines for about 6 months before making a decision about a year ago and am glad I did. Here's what I learned:

Rimowa Pros:
A little lighter
Looks Good
More Popular (if you find security in numbers)

Rimowa Cons:
Flimsy
Dents very easily
More Popular (very popular in Europe and Japan)

Halliburton Pros:
Sturdier
Freewheel Option
Style - Looks good and very distinctive

Halliburton Cons:
A little heavier
Scratches very easily
Wheels aren't as fluid as they could be

Which did I buy? The 21" Freewheel Zeroller. The pros and cons balanced out between the two pretty evenly but the style of the Halliburton was hard to beat. I never see anyone else with an aluminium Zeroller and the Freewheel option looks great and is effortless to use.

Thanks to researching this forum and others, I was aware of the tendency for Halliburton to scratch: don't let that deter you. On the one hand, when they're beaten up I think they look pretty cool. On the other hand, if you take care of them and only carry-on (I can share some other tricks if there's a request) you can keep them looking pristine for a long time.

I had to post this:


I'm actually about to order either a Rimowa or Haliberton. A Polycarbonate model because it is lighter and less expensive than aluminum. Maybe a 29 inch. Can't decide between the two. Any ideas? I think the Rimowa is a LOT lighter.

Rimowa

Haliburton



Can I just bundle wrap in either one and I'm good to go?

I'm a suitcase noob but isn't one of the benefits to having a Rimowa or Halliburton it's security? That's kind of moot when traveling though because the airlines don't let you lock your suitcase correct?
