1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    yes, i also considered the additional room.

    as an update, i just contacted the local rimowa store and they told me to bring the case by whenever to have it repaired within 24 hours. we'll see if this pans out.

    Informative post! I'm curious what brand merino shirts you have found best for this purpose.

    Next month I will have a business trip to Berlin, have already booked tickets https://lowcost.club/ . I often have business trips so here are my tips:
    - Convenient bag. A good business bag should be dark, somber, and simple.
    - Clothes. A weekend can usually be done with one jacket, two pairs of pants, and two shirts, plus sundries. That gives you enough variety that you’re not in the same outfit all week + get a plain, dark jacket in medium-weight worsted wool.
    Wear on the Plane:
    · Comfortable slacks or dark, stylish jeans
    · Casual blazer or sports jacket
    · Lightly-patterned or light-colored dress shirt
    · Brown leather shoes (business-appropriate)
    · Socks, underwear, undershirt, etc.
    · Dress watch

    Dark bags? I tend to prefer louder colors to help my bags stick out - particularly if I get suckered into checking in the bag.

    I choose black ballistic nylon bags to be as generic and stealth as possible for checked bags. I don't want anything to give undo attention to my bags. I do use a bright colored luggage tag however.

    Hi there. Thanks to all, very useful advice. I do also roll my clothes in my suitcase to saves space.

    Any frequent traveler will get a lot from following The Points Guy. I follow him on Twitter for easy updates and specials. He does monthly reviews on the best travel (airline, credit cards and hotels programs) deals and benefits. http://thepointsguy.com/

    I picked up the 100,000 mile signup bonus with Chase Sapphire Reserve thanks to him.

    Every month he ranks all of the leading credit card benefits, costs so you can select the best for your needs.

    He also has good information on flash sales, new routes, new planes and club benefits and access.


    And for those looking for Cyber Monday deals here is a link for some great deals http://thepointsguy.com/2016/11/black-friday-cyber-monday-hotel-deals-2016/

    I see that Briggs & Riley has free shipping and $50 off each $350 you spend.

    As much as I love Rimowa...B&R is so much more functional, practical and stealth. Their newly updated compression packing system is very impressive. We just ordered two of the two wheel expandable domestic roll-ons. The two wheel gives a bit more room than the 4 wheel, enough to tuck in a few more bits and sneakers for gym workouts on multiple day trips. The two wheel is almost a pound lighter than the 4 wheel which is a nice bonus as well.

    I really like a 4 wheel for my larger checked suitcase. It doesn't matter a lot, to me anyway, having 4 wheels on the roll on. Although some like to roll a case sideways down the aisle and 4 wheels would have that advantage.
