Carryon suiter is finally kicking the bucket - please recommend a new one?
 
So my Delsey, two-wheeled suiter that I've had for years is finally tearing inside (interestingly, the outside and the wheels are still in great shape - I thought about fixing it but I don't think the tears are that easy to fix) and I need a new one. I travel a lot for work (30 to 40 percent) and I'm looking for:

1. Two-wheeled bag (for maximum inside space)
2. Must be able to carry on airplane
3. Must have a suiter in it that is part of the bag, not a separate piece (these seem hard to find)
4. Not Tumi expensive (not sure it's worth it)

Someone recommended a Briggs & Riley, which is still pricey. I hear TravelPro doesn't hold up well. I can't find another Delsey of the same type that I have now.

Can anyone recommend something for me?

Thanks!

I recently went through this same exercise and settled on the Victorinox bag here http://www.swissarmy.com/us/en/Produ...-On/p/32300101
I found this recently for $235.
The suiter attaches with Velcro and is removable, which I found to be a plus since I can remove it and hang in the closet.
If you need a suiter which cannot be removed, I suggest the Briggs

@Herrick - thanks! Was hoping to get a good recommendation here.

Lots of folks around here are HUGE fans of the Gate8 wheeled garment bag, for good reason... I'm a big fan myself. The owner's occasionally on here on Flyertalk directly.

Is that only sold in the UK? Canít seem to find a US listing for it....

Travelpro Softside 22" Carry-On at Costco...fits your needs exactly. I'm going to do a quick comparison in a new post comparing it to the Kirkland spinner version.
