suitcase suggestion needed

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I am off to buy a new suitcase one of the days. I need the classic wheels/handle/hand luggage/carry on airplane type of thing and the usual thing to would be to buy myself a Samsonite or a wanna be Samsonite.

But do anyone have other suggestions? An more alternative version of the same? or just with more unique build in features?

Any suggestions are welcome.

Don't be the guy with the overstuffed wheelie case that's slightly beyond regulations to begin with. I travel with a small duffel most of the time, and when the entire overhead bin is occupied by some case that should have been flagged as too big to carry-on, (so big that I can't even fit in my small duffel) I suppose you can see why I get reasonably miffed.

It's a little pricey but I like something like this.

It's a wheeled carry-on that converts to a day-pack.

You give up some of the structured protection of a Samsonite style "hard-shell" but the backpack design means you can stuff more stuff in there. Plus, a lot more little zippered pouches and nooks and crannies and what more fore stashing things separately.

Don't buy Samsonite. Without a question, buy a semi-hard sided zippered polycarbonate case like the fantastic Antler Quartz. My girlfriend bought the overnight/cabin case and I loved it so much I bought the shorthaul case for my two month trip to the states this summer.

Antler is made in the UK, so these are hard to find in the US. Fortunately, I think Antler sells these in Denmark.

I got a fantastic deal on mine. I paid about US$100 in Hong Kong, but I had to haggle. The SRP is £130.
