Sad I missed it. Procrastination ::)
So I got the bags. Ok quality. Not totally disappointed but not blown away. But really light weight. Gonna keep one set and return the other. If someone wants to pay me what I paid for it ($62) plus shipping they can have it. Otherwise I'll return it to target.
decided to splurge on a bag and got a second delsey helium x'pert lite 29" (my mil got me or first one for my birthday from Macy's, g-d knows Joe much she spent on it) for $140+tax from bagsbuy.com on sale for $165-$25 (coupon code EMLFASHION12)
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Good Luggage recommendations
« Reply #76 on: November 22, 2012, 01:28:16 PM »
Can anybody recommend?
1) Some good luggage recommendations. The ones that you can pick up for cheap at Kohlís or Marshalls are usually very heavy. I need a suitcase that is strong yet very light (and not too expensive)
2) Good, not oversized hand luggage (that will fit under seat/overhead bin and not taken away by the flight attendants) that is sturdy and preferably rotating wheels!
Thank You

Is ~$100 a good price?
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

You should probably include price ranges that you're looking to pay..

Not IMHO, IIRC during sales Macy's usually has for cheaper.
The Polycarb is on sale for $180 after 50% off at Macys right now.
$99.99 at Amazon BF.

I never even bother looking at these (ugly & bulky) hard plastic luggage when I'm in the Macy's luggage section, so I guess the ones I saw (for cheaper) are all made from fabric.  I didn't know that the hard plastic ones go for so much more $$ than the fabric (though it's beyond me why people buy these plastic..).

Because they weigh next to nothing and are very durable (as OP requested)
And who cares if luggage it's ugly.  It's just luggage!

Not lighter than this ("worlds lightest luggage").
Also, an advantage of fabric suitcases is that they're expandable and it stretches out, while the hard ones are basically a hard box, either it fits or it doesn't, no squeezing in.. (at least that's the way I imagine).

I personally like material ones as it does "bend" making it easier to squeeze in places (car, overhead, etc). Also if putting under seat, its more comfortable for your feet to rest on material then a hard box!

My mind doesn't process that, if it's hard, how does it stretch?
