I am also a fan of eBags products (the stuff they make themselves, not the other brands they only sell.) Their wheeled bags can take a beating and are backed by a good warranty. The front of the bags are soft sided but that is not a bad thing in my opinion.

Just an FYI-Consumer Reports recently reviewed luggage. Briggs and Reily top their list I recall. Worth checking out the reviews, IMO.

We love our B&R bags.

I know everyone's first instinct here is to be anti checked bag, but I always check and will continue to due to an injury from a bad car accident-dragging luggage is the exact activity that seems to flare it up.
Wifey had to purchase a Delsey checked-size bag in France after airline "misplaced" our luggage (for 5 weeks). Performed quite well.

agree re whether one lives near B&R repair partner, i had one free repair and never had to replace

my last samsonsite lost a wheel and a pocket on its first trip, frankly i dont care how cheap it is when that happens (if i had things in pocket)

what are new tumi products like now that samsonite owns tumi? (since 2016)
