Have you guys heard of Victorinox? Â It is the Swiss Army knife brand. Â They have models that are very similar to Tumi complete with lifetime warranty for about half the price at retail. Â I have a briefcase by them that is like a Tumi 26041 and it has held up very well with daily use and frequent travel. Â I am now thinking about getting a carry-on suiter by them also. Â Anyone has any experience with Victorinox carry-ons here?
here's an idea, stuff your things into a hefty bag, that is really cheap.
stay away from those brands, go with tumi, briggs and riley, or travelpro. the features are all the same, but the difference is in how long they last. over the past 16 years I have burried a lot of bags that fell appart, from mediocre brands. if you want your bag to last, get a good bag to start. by the way, you can get good new tumi bags on ebay for about half price.
