If it's a hard suitcase anyway that you want to bring, you can bring it empty. It won't be crushed. For the 30-something bucks it would cost to check the suitcase (usually at least one 23kg suitcase...

First, what's wrong with washing the underwear in a hotel room sink? It's perfectly hygienic. If it's just for the DIY part, I'm sure you can find laundry service and laundromats in Japan (not sure...

If your only concern is that there are no hangers and no "garment bag" or suiter in these bags, worry not. With the techniques in the sticky above you can pack a suit wrinkle free even in a duffle...

I am an opponent of garment bags in general and wheeled ones in particular. They are usually rather expensive and heavy because of their intricate manufacturing process. They are also packing rather...

Dear 2MeterMan,

we certainly won't turn you into an ultralight packer and I even think it will be hard to shave off an additional piece of luggage. Even if you were to reduce the electronics...

I'd try the luxury holdall thread we started some time ago. ;)

I'd closely look at Diamond Leather by S.T. Dupont. Wonderful quality. Won't be heavier than LV's Epicuir. Craftsmanship is at least...

One of the most common questions in this section of Flyertalk is what suitcase size to choose to stay within the usual 23kg or 50lbs limit.

Here is the simple answer:

The 32" is heavier to...

Without further info and as a general answer, choose the 28 incher. No doubt.

The 32" is heavier to start with. Tare weight is higher. Thus net load weight goes down because you have a 50lbs...

He didn't say anything about a weight limit, he said "nothing larger".

Weight limit might be an issue or maybe not, depending on the airline. We don't know. That's why I mentioned it.

Of course, we don't know the pace of your itinerary nor if you are male or female. Carrying a fully loaded 26" suitcase is not funny for a man and can be outright punishing for a lady. So that's the...

I think the price is a bit in favor of the BR, no? The Topas has about the same weight. It should offer a bit more storage space due to the two-wheel version you would like to have. Interior and...

The problem is that folks don't understand the principle behind it.

The big bags need to go in the overhead because they don't fit under the seat. They have priority. Simple as that. Too often the...

I think the main question is why would anyone bring a salami and seeds from the US to Europe. It doesn't make sense in that direction since the salami would most likely be better in Europe anyway and...
