I have really enjoyed some good solid Lands End luggage. They also stand behind it for Life. I usually buy them on sale.

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.

+1, those bags are great!

Hi all - I am looking for a good deal on carry on luggage with the spinning wheels that allow you to carry it sideways.  Please post if you know of anything or have suggestions.

Just saw two different ones at Costco that were good quality -- one was a lightweight hard shell, and the other a normal bag.  Both with the spinning wheels...don't remember the price - one of them was part of a set

Looking for a new set of luggage
« Reply #40 on: April 15, 2012, 03:34:07 AM »
Hi all,

My wife and I travel quite a bit - even more since I discovered DansDeals.  ;D We live in Israel, and fly to the USA an average of 2 or 3 times a year, plus the occasional trip from Israel to Europe (e.g. Switzerland), as well as the occasional domestic trip within the USA (e.g. Arizona).

We are looking for a decent set of luggage for our journeys. Nothing fancy; just a really, really good set - durable, quality suitcases that don't weigh too much when empty (airlines are so stingy on luggage these days, it's a shame to waste weight on the body of the suitcase). I don't know much about luggage - mo :ost of the suitcases we've had until now have been the El Cheapo kind you find on the sidewalk in front of discount stores on 13th ave. in Boro Park. Now I'm looking to get away from that, and make a quality investment. We probably need 4 suitcases, each capable of holding 50-70 lbs, as well as two smaller ones (hand luggage size).

Anybody have any recommendations? And it wouldn't hurt if I could get a decent deal on the luggage, too... ;)

Thanks!

How do you pack clothes like dress pants, dress shirts, suits ect without wrinkling them? Curious how people here pack these items in regular suitcases as well.

Airtran, it was prob. like 70 linear inches.

Same here they measured my suitcase and saw it was to big and charged me 50$ so  when I got home I emailed them saying I was not happy with their customer service and that my suitcase was barley an inch larger than its allowed an the refunded the 50$

I had a suitcase that was standard size and airtran tried to charge me.   When I told them it was standard size he told me it might have been but whatever I had in the front pocket was making it bulge and causing it to be oversize.  Needless to say i removed it from the front pocket put it elsewhere and avoided the charges but it left me with a bitter taste.
