There's a good luggage discussion here: http://milepoint.com/forums/threads/best-luggage.2462/ For carryon I am a big fan of my Briggs & Riley 20" Baseline. I love my Tom Bihn Checkpoint Flyer laptop bag. I rarely check a bag. A 4 night trip to Paris in Winter? I'm good with my 20" rollaboard. Six nights in the Caribbean? Again, that 20" back works for me. But 2-3 trips per year I need to check a bag. So it's really just occasional use. Last month's two-week Asia trip, where I'm doing both beach and a city, and heading to dinner at a couple of restaurants where I need a jacket even. My old bag has had it, it got beaten up pretty good, and I stupidly just tossed it as I was unpacking. Now I don't even remember the size, in my mind it was a 26" bag but looking back in my email for the receipt when I bought it about 6 years ago I think it was a 24". So I guess I'm doing a 2-week trip with a 24" bag and my 20" rollaboard. (Alright, I'm not one of those "one bag" guys!). Given that it's a 2-3 times a year thing, I really don't want to break the bank on a replacement. Looking for good value, a bag that will last, that I can throw a suit into along with enough everything else to last for two weeks and I don't mind if it's too big if I'm just headed abroad for 6-7 nights. Part of me thinks I ought to just grab a $75 Atlantic 25" bag on eBags. I see the Travelpro Crew 8 26" expandable suiter for $215. But then the Travelpro Maxlite 25" (which I know nothing about) is available for just $105 at LuggageOnline. See, I'm not really wanting to drop $350 (x2, one for msgleff) for the Briggs & Riley. As a checked bag pseudo-novice, what do y'all think? Thanks!
