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

My Ride: Suburban LT 4x4
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.

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 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.
