Point me in the right direction if there is already one of these somewhere.

I need a big hardshell suitcase and I'm currently looking at either the Samsonite Cosmolite and the Rimowa Salsa Air. Both are roughly the same weight, so I'm interested to know which is tougher. Both claim to be made out of some fancy indestructable material. Anyone have any experience with either?

Not sure about size either. The larger cases seem to be around the 85 or 100L mark. I know some airlines are a bit strict these days with the dimensions of the case.

This Samsonite case is a bit feminine, but I'm purely concerned with quality/durability.

You can always buy some Supreme and Bape Stickers and put them on Smiling but those cases are the business should easly last the 10-15 year mark.

Had my M & S 2 wheel for 10 years, only just now the handle has gone Sad

Rimowa are very decent quality but not worth double the price of Samsonite IMO.

I have the largest version of this Mandarina Duck drop case - light as a feather and fecking strong, I recommend it highly.
