  • Using for first time. I can pack quite a bit but I’m a little concerned about the handle. It’s not very sturdy and as a crew member I hope it holds up and doesn’t break

  • Well made, sturdy, easy to maneuver in airports, and even while boarding aircraft. Enough compartments to keep things organized

  • So far, so good. I have had no trouble stowing this bag overhead in any full size plane (i.e. B737 and A319 or larger). The extra width does require a bit of care maneuvering in tight spaces but it can roll through the aisles of any plane that can accommodate it in the overhead bin. The flat interior and the load compression mechanisms are strengths of the design. The external compartments for holding documents and cell phones work surprising well once I adapted to them. Overall the bag seems well made but the extending handle seems a bit flimsy and I would not be surprised to see it fail after a few years of heavy use.

  • I received this suitcase as a birthday gift before I traveled to Europe. I traveled via planes, trains and automobiles. I walked through cobblestone streets of Norway and Spain. I walked through airports, train stations and subway stations and this bag was wonderful. By the way I don't check my bags traveling to destinations because I hate the thought of loosing my luggage before arriving to my destinations. This bag rolls smoothly, fits into carry-on perfectly and I carried two weeks worth of clothes! I'm a fan! Well worth the price.

  • Prefer this so much than the regular zipper expansion. Will definitely recommend.

  • Great bag, very spacious and extremely durable. The garment folder is excellent and works well. Really pleased with it. Only drawback is that it is too heavy at 4.2kg when travelling in Europe where some airlines have a 8kg or 10kg limit for hand luggage. If the suitcase already accounts for half of it then you can't really pack that many things...

  • We used this bag for the first time on a trip to LA. Someone along the way must have dragged the suitcase on a concrete floor when it probably caught a nail. A brand new suitcase was ruined. We brought the suitcase in to the Long Island office and thought it would be repaired. To our surprise, they sent us a brand new suitcase! Briggs & Riley really stands by their products & claims. You can't buy a better suitcase & you can't do business with better people. Don't even think about buying another brand. Quality products/Quality People.

  • I was contemplating a new cabin bag for a long time and my heart was set on a TUMI but a friend had mentioned B&R as well. I finally found a store that sold both and I was very quickly convinced that this was the cabin bag for me - I compared it to the TUMI and found it was more spacious, lighter and significantly cheaper - without sacrificing on quality at all - in fact this is a excellent product. I never check bags and wanted something that I could use for a weekend or two week trip - you can really get loads in here! Don't hesitate.....BUY this now - I absolutely love it.

  • Yes, it is heavy but that seems unavoidable to get a bag that will stand up to punishment of travel. I took this little guy on a 5-city trip and was delighted with its ease in steering, ability to go many city blocks without snags or stalling. The outside-mounted handle snagged once while putting into an overhead rack on Swiss train, otherwise presented no problems and the design advantage is clear. Segregating laundry (bagged) from clean clothing is very easy with all the dividers. I only have small reservation about the expansion rachet system being plastic rather than aluminum.

  • United, Delta, and other major carriers tightened carry-on baggage limits in the summer 2014. Now it's not just linear inches but they specify a maximum size of 22. X 14 x 9. I know of bags being rejected because they were too wide in the new fit boxes and stuck out over the top. Many older bags are 15 or 15.5 inches wide. It may take a while for the luggage industry to reconfigure bags for the new rules.
