    Default Luggage

    I felt this is different enough from "Men's Bags" to warrant it's own thread. I'm in the market for some nice luggage that could potentially last me a very long time. I already have one HUGE suitcase that's strictly for packing as many clothes in as possible, but I don't know who makes it or how long it will last. Now I want some nice, smaller pieces for carry-on, or a smaller checked bag. Had my eye on Globetrotter, as they seem to be the go-to iconic piece of luggage. Any opinions?

    My opinion is just go to Century. They have surprisingly excellent luggage from samsonite and delsey very cheap. I know you hate the place, but it's worth it. With the money you save you will buy yourself a nice rick tee ;-)

    i've had a rimowa aluminum hardcase carry-on that I've used for a few years now. it's been everywhere. I highly recommend rimowa products.

    i can't stand luggage so i use a pelican 1510 with the web top and velcro compartments.

    it's not object dyed but it gets the job done. will float in salt water depending on load..

    Samsonite Black Label X'Lite 21" hardside spinner in dark grey.

    It's a carry-on that weighs next to nothing with four wheels... incredibly easy to wheel around, strong enough to put a bag on top, looks great, sturdy. Fits quite a lot. I've packed a suit, jeans, shirts, t-shirts, and sneakers in it along with other small items. I've had it for years.

    I don't think it's made anymore but still pops up on ebay sometimes...make sure to get the 4 wheel version which is the 21". the 22" is 2 wheels if I remember correctly.

    I swear by the Rimowa polycarbonite ones, half the weight of old fashioned suitcases and more durable. plus the black one looks pretty stealth

    I second that, RIMOWA is the best.
    I own the largest and a little smaller version of this one in black.
    Although I quite like the aluminium version as well, especially when it looks beaten up after some travels but the non existing weight of this one is just perfect.

    i've been using a mandarina duck frog trolley for the last few years. it fits into any overhead bin and it has a stretchy skin that can accommodate the occassional over packing.

    I've been using a Briggs & Riley 21" carry-on from their Transcend collection. It's got excellent capacity and even has a built-in garment sleeve. They also have the most awesome lifetime warranty that covers all repairs free of charge!

    After years of having MH Way luggage, I bought the classic black Globe-Trotter luggage about two years ago and I love it, but it does get damaged (patinaed ) pretty easily. The trolly is great for a carry-on though. You do have to be careful with letting water sit on it too long (learned this walking through New York this past winter) as the fiber turns back into pulp.

    I have a few friends with the Rimowa black polycarbonate luggage which still looks new after a lot of travel, but I still prefer the finish and lines of Globe-Trotter.

    The Hermes suitcase is around 13k in case anyone was curious.

    Globe-trotter is a great choice. The suitcases are fairly robust, and they look great. I get a lot of compliments and comments about my Globe-trotter bags. For hand luggage, the Berluti Formula 1000 trolley case and the 3 night bag are really nice.

    If you want the most optimized carry-on, reliable, lightweight, allowed on pretty much all international flights and with lifetime warranty buy the Briggs & Riley 20" from the basic line. Speaking from a purely practical perspective you won't get better.

    If you want "designed" or stuff like hard shell (more weight but useless for a carry-on IMHO) knock yourself out and pick what you like. LV makes some nice luggage too and so do the usual suspects like Hermes, Bottega and Goyard.
