best luggage
« on: August 01, 2008, 07:58:58 AM »
I want to buy a set of luggage for about $1000 -  anyone have any opinions on the best company or deals. I was told by a store that briggs and riley is the best, with a lifetime warranty- but they are very expensive is it worth it? any ideas where to get good deals?

http://www.tumi.com/ is hands down the best luggage you just might not want to pay so much, woodberry commons has a Tumi outlet with better prices if your really interested

Just buy your luggage on Kingston Avenue (or your local equivalent). The way baggage handlers throw luggage around, I wouldn't expect any suitcase to last more than one trip lol

If you keep having to pay return shipping then the warranty defeats it's purpose.

Also, lifetime warranties are usually limited (i.e. Briggs and Riley will only replace your damaged luggage x amount of times).

Looking for suggesions on the best type or where to buy large, cheap, light luggage to maximize the possibility of travelling with a single bag and avoiding the bag fee on the second bag. 

Thanks

I like traveling with the $30-$40 30" long duffels that Costco sells.  Pretty light, can fit a ton of stuff inside, and they can fit into smaller spaces than traditional luggage.

Do they have wheels?

Dan, is this the one you mean
http://www.costco.com/Browse/ProductSet.aspx?Prodid=11469069&search=duffel&Mo=1&cm_re=1_en-_-Top_Left_Nav-_-Top_search&lang=en-US&Nr=P_CatalogName:BC&Sp=S&N=5000043&whse=BC&Dx=mode+matchallpartial&Ntk=Text_Search&Dr=P_CatalogName:BC&Ne=4000000&D=duffel&Ntt=duffel&No=1&Ntx=mode+matchallpartial&Nty=1&topnav=&s=1

I usually buy these:
http://www.amarobags.com/product-p/45341.htm
(ignore the minimum order- you can talk them into it)
My local costco has a different brand and a better looking bag, but yes, that's the idea.
And because it's from Costco they'll stand behind the bag.

How much do the Amaro bags weigh and how do you order just 1 or 2?
