Luggage Recommendation for 1-2 week trips

Hey guys,

I'm in the market for a new carry on bag that will hopefully let me get down to a 1 bag system. I normally take a 1-2 week travel for work and usually need a 22" carry on for clothes and a backpack for computer, notebook, etc. I'm looking for a new carry on bag that might help me eliminate my backpack and upgrade my current carry on. Any recommendations?

The Goruck GR1 fits the bill for me perfectly when traveling like you do. You can check it out at: https://www.goruck.com/Gear/Details/GR1

So you are already carrying a 22" carry on bag, and you want to find a different 22" carry on bag that will help you eliminate your backpack? What is your current carry on and what is your budget?

If your current 22" bag is packed absolutely full, you are going to have a hard time with any bag trying to fit all of that, plus another backpack full of stuff in addition. It's a simple matter of physics that the maximum allowable carry on volume can only contain so much stuff, no matter how cleverly arranged it may be. There are newer carry on bag "systems" that keep your clothes neatly folded, prevent wrinkles, aid in organization, etc., but cramming an entire backpack worth of extras is going to be a tall order.

Having said all of that, I'm a fan of Briggs & Riley for their lifetime unconditional warranty (even covers airline damage). I also love spinners for their ease of use. B&R just announced a brand new line called Torq that will be on sale in May. I'd get one of those. Pictures here.
