CX™ Compression-Expansion Technology might sound a little intimidating, but we can say with absolute certainty, it’s an easy-to-use, sophisticated feature that makes the road warrior life as easy as pack, compress and go. Whether you’re a fan of hard-sided luggage or soft—or both, because really, who can decide sometimes—there’s a Briggs & Riley CX™ bag perfect for you. So what exactly does CX™ do, you might be asking. Good question. CX™ Technology gives you the ability to jam-pack your bag with everything you need (and want, and then some). But thanks to the incredible patented compression-expansion system, not only can you expand your bag up to 34 percent, but then you can compress it back down to carry-on size. 

Coveted Carry-on Convenience.

If you don’t like waiting in line at the luggage carousel after a long flight (because who does?), no problem. An added bonus, especially for business travelers, is that you won’t have to check your CX™ bag if it’s the size of a carry-on. No matter how often you hit the road, saving time and money with this sort of convenience is something to cherish. What’s something else to cherish? Arriving in style. When designing CX™, we were determined to innovate more than just the packing process. It’s vital that upon arrival our bags still perform, and these ones definitely do. Our compression-expansion technology allows you to compress your belongings securely in place. So when you arrive and unpack, your clothes will be exactly as you packed them—wrinkle-free and ready-to-wear. No iron or steamer? No problem. 

Designing it was Complex. Using it... isn’t.

Once you’ve packed everything you need for your travels, simply expand the CX™ mechanisms on the sides. Pull up each side of the case and then zip the case closed. Finally, compress the bag back down to its original size, and finito! You’re ready to go with your travel essentials packed in a sleek, sophisticated bag. When preparing to return home, use the exact same method, even if you’re now packing a few souvenirs. We hope you are, because these bags can certainly handle it. CX™ is the ultimate compression system. It’s the strong, yet lightweight innovation that gives you more options when it comes to traveling. Not only does CX™ give you the space to pack for any situation—whether it’s a last-minute weekend getaway or impromptu hiking excursion—but it also ensures that you’ll be prepared, organized and most of all, stylish upon arrival.
