what luggage brand do you like?
over the years i've gone through a lot of cheap luggage ...
broken handles, broken zippers, broken wheels, broken frame ... etc.
i picked up a samsonite brand suitcase for a really good price a few years ago and it is still holding up great over many flights
so now i am only going to buy quality luggage because the quality stuff lasts longer and you end up saving money in the long run
just wanted some suggestions on good, durable luggage brands from those who are familiar

I got 3 sets of Dockers 4 piece luggage sets on sale for $99.99 per set for me and the woman and its been great so far.

Has the swivel rollerblade wheels and adjustable handles.

I have only used it about 10 times, but so far so good.

Hartmann is real nice if you want expensive stuff.

I always lean toward a matched set of Puerto Rican luggage. 5 Grocery bags from the same store.

i always wondered if Tumi is actually good stuff and worth the money
or if it's just popular and overpriced

I used to have Tumi, it is okay. I really like Delsey.

All my long and short haul luggage is Samsonite, has never let me down. Have a tumi suit carrier which is nice, and really well made too. Can't go wrong with either brand

I have Patagonia duffles that have lasted for years and years. The new ones I think might even have wheels for you softies out there!

Every single time I think of Samsonite I am reminded of that scene:rofl:

this is the new version

hands down the best man -u need to buy the pack it system. its very efficient - i have my button downs in a folder, shirts, boxers in a cube, socks,etc. in another cube. toiletries in another


i travel a lot and the bag has 100% lifetime coverage - just send it in for a fix or a replacement

well reviewed and better than the junk out there

Who gives a ****......I'm not gay...(Not that there is anything wrong with that)....As long as it hold my junk....who cares

SDKmann 02-06-2011 01:19 PM

I would highly suggest getting some stuff from Osprey. They make outdoors packs for big backpacking trips and stuff like that but they also have a few luggage items now. They have a lifetime warranty, which you'll never need to use because everything is made so well.

They're all $hitty imo because they can only take so much tossing around...I've had three different brands(over $150) and the first that always goes out are the front zippers.
