Four Wheeled Luggage (Spinners) Introduced By Briggs & Riley
The Inventor of Wheeled Luggage Strikes Again with an Industry-Best

4 Wheels in Harmony – Singers Serenade the Rolling Wonder on October 7th
Hauppauge, N.Y. (October 7, 2011) – Just when you thought you couldn’t be more in love with your luggage, new 4 wheeled pieces from Briggs & Riley are being introduced to the market this month in specialty luggage stores and select department stores, upping the ante on luggage engineering and design. Three new spinner styles from the renowned luggage and case maker are being unveiled today in their flagship luggage line, the Baseline Collection, and are being serenaded throughout New York City to celebrate the best-in-class rolling wonder, courtesy of a quartette from the University of Rochester’s acclaimed Midnight Ramblers a cappella rage.

From the company that put the first wheels on luggage in 1970, consumers can expect the best soft-sided lightweight spinners on the market with features that have made Briggs & Riley the industry leader in durability and smart design for the frequent business and leisure traveler. The Briggs & Riley 4 wheeled collection, like all Briggs & Riley pieces are backed by an unmatched lifetime warranty.

Briggs & Riley spinner luggage features that make them the best design for consumers:
  • Outsider® handle, providing a flat surface inside your case for more capacity and minimal wrinkling of clothing
  • Four double-swivel wheels with an integrated molded wheel frame that is recessed for optimal durability and effortless 360° navigation
  • SpeedThru™ pocket for quick storage of items at security checkpoints
  • Large gusseted front pocket that opens wide to store travel items like a jacket, magazine, newspaper; the carry-on features a pocket that holds up to a 16” laptop (sleeve recommended).
  • Durable, dirt and abrasion resistant ballistic nylon outer fabric
  • Simple as that® lifetime guarantee – the only spinner on the market with such an iron clad warranty
"The first wheeled luggage had 4 wheels and the industry has come full circle again. Our new Spinners take design, durability and functionality to a new level of convenience and ease," says Richard Krulik, CEO of Briggs & Riley and US Luggage. "We’re confident that adding the convenience of outside pockets not found on hard-sided spinners, the flexibility of packing in a flat surfaced soft-sided bag, and the ability to roll a carry-on length-wise down an airplane aisle, will resonate with consumers who want and demand luggage that performs beyond expectation," continued Krulik.

The new Baseline Spinners will be available in three sizes; a 20" Carry-On Wide-Body, 24" Expandable Upright, and 27" Expandable Upright, ranging in price from $429 - $529. To learn more about the new Baseline Spinners, visit
