CX® Expansion


Step into the future of travel with CX® Compression-Expansion technology — an exclusive patented technology that defies the limits of conventional luggage, enabling you to expand your storage capacity and compress it back to its original size. Available in soft-sided and hard-shell luggage, CX® Compression-Expansion revolutionizes the way you pack.

Briggs & Riley CX® Compression Expansion

Using the CX® Compression-Expansion system is quick and simple. First, expand the CX mechanisms by pulling up each side of your suitcase. Once you’ve packed all your travel essentials, zip the case shut and compress it back down to its original size.

Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or an infrequent flyer, this innovative technology can help you reinvent your packing strategy. If you tend to overpack, you’ll have plenty of room in your checked luggage to take everything and then some for your next adventure. For carry-on luggage, our compression system gives you the freedom to pack what you want without worrying about the airline checking your bag. Bringing home a few keepsakes? Our expandable luggage helps ensure no souvenir gets left behind.
