Yep, it’s this one https://www.rimowa.com/gb/en/luggage/polycarbonate/cabin/83253634.html

It looks nice in a lot of the colours but I’ve had my eye on a black one for some time.

Black is the best one. Just be careful checking it in. I’ve had my new case under 2 months and it’s already battered

The metal is cool but too heavy

It’s innevitable. However, I did have to plead a little bit at the airport yesterday for them not to check it in on an overcrowded flight. I at least wanted to wait until I’d taken the tags off before it was battered. Told them it was a gift.

Laughing out loud so nan.

Surely the point of a Rimowa is that its indestructible?

Maybe wrap it up in that cling film stuff next time you need to take a consignment of iPhones back to Guangzhou.

Most airlines will reimburse you if they do damage it, I think. I fly about about 100x a year so cases never last long.

absolutely mental in my mind that people spend 8-9 bills on hold luggage that ends up looking absolutely shagged within a handful of uses

It’s not indestructible, they tell at the store it would get battered.

The wheel movement is one the best, but best to just get the market jobbies

That's wrong. I hate phone cases too.

Slap some cool stickers on your rimowa and roll, consider the scratches proof of use. It's the skater approach to luggage

Lugged my classic aluminium up a massive flight of steps at the airport and had to let it go for a second while I reached to open a door - fucking thing rolled off and bounced all the way to the bottom. No visible damage (it’s already well dinged up though as I use it a lot). I have sent it off once to get a new wheel and they knocked some of the dents out as best they could, but they don’t bother me.

That Rimowa nans protectove case is the worst thing I’ve ever seen
