The mrs has those uber light Samsonite, but they seem to be peeling a bit after a few trips and a tad $$$$.

If you can afford £120, these are on par with samsonite etc. Comes with 10-year guarantee

i used to work in a few pals' luggages shops and the best makes are probably Tumi, Rimowa and Briggs and Riley- the latter is a lot cheaper and offer a lifetime guarantee that covers everything(no questions or proof of purchase needed), so if you travel a lot, it is a case for life. personally i would get a nice bag though as the size of cabin baggage is so small that for a man its easier to just pick it up then wheel something small along, as far as anything else goes- price is a good indicator, they all use false original/sale prices too

i looked at the briggs and riley torq as i wanted a hard case with a front pocket. After trying that, the samsonite ultimocabin, rimowa hybrid and Antler prosper the best case worked out to be the cheapest. It's a delsey Helium Aero. It expands too if you need more space. Cost me £120.
Worth a read

how often are you travelling?
i find carry on "suitcase" luggage more effort than its worth.
if you get a 55x25x20 case, thats great for commercial airlines if theres space for your bag. but you are always going to have to be one of those cunts who queues up early to make sure you get a space overhead for your bag.
I use a clipper, which has the same volume as a carry on case, no one ever asks to check it for size into those bin things. It is easier to fit overhead and if theres no space, it fits under the chair easily and comfortably.
also depending on what type of travelling you are doing a 55cm bag is too large for anything smaller than the Embraer 170, that might even be too big for that plane.

plus and probably most importantly seeming as this is a fashion website, you look like a complete cunt wheeling around something the size of your wallet on wheels.

I actually want to hurt people badly who use trolley cases, get off a flight and straight away its clunk, clunk clunk, and you have about a million of the cunts in your feet. I understand they are practical but I actually want to stab anyone who has one.

I travel a lot and I use a leather holdall like Mistake and its great.

Csb but the reason I got one was I couldn't carry my clipper, umbrella and use my phone in hand. It's proper easier using that case when I gotta go up and down the country. Obviously look a cunt but I'm getting old and wheeling a bag also lessens the strain.

Most zip closures arent secure are they? Might be an issue for some travellers. Vest would be an exterior pocket but main section more like a rimowa or globe trotter.
