What brand of luggage are you using? - Page 2

post #16 of 88
As hand luggage or as overnight bag an LV Keepall, as "normal" luggage those very light Rimowa Trolleys.

I've been using the same Tumi Tech luggage for the last few years. The ballistic nylon has held up well.

- Nothing like well used luggage! - Rimowa for now & this is my standard rig when I travel - only difference is I also have a larger case for my suits (in the black poly-carb stuff) - I rotate between the Prada soft case & a Filson zipped tote for carry on FWIW I'm on a international flight every 2-3 weeks through out Asia Pacific so I need to make sure WAYW fits are fresh..

I have a navy Red Oxx Air Boss for my carry-on and I just bought an eBags house brand rolling duffel that I have yet to use but researched a couple months ago as being very sturdy and relatively light.


It depends how much you travel. I have had one Tumi suitcase for 7 years. I paid about $600 for it. My wife has gone through at least 3 Samsonite suitcases in the same time period (at least $200 per suitcase). She is now on her fourth suitcase, while mine has held up. My suitcase has been on at least 30-40 international trips in that timeframe, including quite a few third world countries where much damage is done. It is still in great condition. I'm sold for life.

Speaking of Briggs and Riley, I would agree that they are also solid bags and are good value. Probably the most bang for your buck. I find that they are slightly heavier and not as well made as Tumi, but they hold up very well. I have a carry on that I've had for about 9 years. It has also been checked in on at least 50-75 trips and it's just starting to lose some screws etc.

I know Tumi is available on Ebay for good prices, plus Tumi has outlets scattered throughout the country where good and sometimes great deals can be found.

Samsonite - has held up well so far, great value for $ since I got my pieces on sale from outlets.
Am considering something with more pedigree when I have the replace but we'll see

Cheers

You know, they will fix it for free if you call them.

I think your setup is going to be my next. Though I usually try to only bring a carryon. I'm also hoping to get a filson duffle soon.

Just bought a Briggs and Riley today to replace my shredded Samsonite bag. The lifetime guarantee against all damage is what convinced me.

Briggs & Riley, again on recommendation from the fora. I'm very happy with the rollaway so far, and hope not to have to use the warranty, but it's great knowing the protection is there.

I currently use a filson 256 bag for my laptop, just ordered the small duffle for my carry-on, and use a big wheeled duffel from high-sierra to check.
