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,

    That looks stupid. Special needs tier. If you need or want to take your jacket off, then just take it off. You're not free climbing; just drape it over a chair or your damn arm.

    It's still practical though. Sometimes you can't drape it over a chair (barstools), other times you might actually need to use both arms.

    Fok, does rimowa make any aluminum luggage without the ugly ass wheels on the bottom? Would rather get a zero but I thought I read somewhere quality went down, got bought out or some shit can't really recall. They look much nicer than the rimowas.

    If it's a carry on I agree, suitcases are meant to be checked in and often weighs a ton.

    Jet, I figured you'd be more of a Globetrotter type person.

    ZERO Halliburton was sold to a Japanese luggage company in the mid 2000s, but afaik, it was just one of those strategic purchases - companies change hands all the time. I certainly haven't heard of any drastic decrease in quality. I mean, it's not like they will fall apart. Maybe if you are throwing them off a bridge onto a moving train, you might worry about incremental changes in durability, but I assume you won't be doing that. I mean, even James bond needs to get into casual clothes and stop sipping cocktails when he does that type of shit.

    I've never seen a Rimowa without wheels.

    That said, every frequent traveler that I know uses a roll. Unless you have porters and a private jet, running between terminals to make a connection, or even just getting your shit from security to the farthest gate from security, is a pain, without wheels. Fuuma and I both use a Briggs&Riley. No, they are not beautiful, but they are durable. Softsided cases don't crack or warp - if a hardsided case warps, you are shit outta luck - and ballistic nylon withstands most types of force better - a knife being the exception, in which case, your luggage is the least of your worries.
