  1. This IS a great deal considering the lifetime warranty, unlike the one year warranty on my Tumi bags (maybe it’s changed since Samsonite bought them).

    Luckily for me local warranty service is almost walking distance from my house.
    There is limited warranty service that can be performed without sending the bag in, however.

  2. Discounted from obscene to exorbitant. Yeah, lifetime warranty, I know. But the bags themselves aren’t life-changing and I can buy three good bags for the price of one B&R. Doesn’t seem to be worth it.

  3. Saffy, I agree. In the past when I’ve purchased a nice bag I’ve almost always regretted it after my first trip. What’s the point in having a bag that lasts forever when it looks like crap? Now I buy a cheap bag and upgrade it every couple years.

  4. I’d agree with you guys except the carry -on doesn’t get scuffed up.
    I’ve overstuffed it so many times that it’s needed three repairs, but the outside doesn’t get scuffed.

  5. The hard suitcases don’t expand much though do they?

    These days, you have to take electronics on carryon so that means things like laptops and cameras, not to mention smaller devices like phones and iPads, battery packs, chargers, cables. Would be nice to have at least a dedicated laptop compartment.

    Plus Briggs and Riley cases have lifetime warranties but they make sure to put in heavy-duty wheels and so forth, making them heavier than most cases to begin with.

  6. I fly ~400,000 miles a year and only use B&R. The carry-on bags roll better than any others and every part of them is well made. The unconditional (not just “manufacturer defects”) lifetime warranty is the icing on the cake.

  7. Is there much difference between air travel and backpacking. Other than that one is fun and the other is not. Anyway, compared to backpacks and the importance of having a good one as opposed to an okay one, $240-$300 total cost for an essential component of air travel is nothing for a frequent traveler. Unless it is your last two $100 bills, the lifetime warranty and the recommendations and reputation would easily justify the additional cost. If you still don’t like it after a year, you could probably sell it for $100-$150.

  8. B&R is not luggage. It’s a subscription luggage service. I break my roller bag yearly, drop it off, and get a refurbished one a few weeks later.

  9. We bought new B&R luggage last year, a soft-side set for my husband and a hard-side set for me, and we love both. They came back from a trip to Europe still looking great and they’ve been on many domestic trips as well this year.

    The carry-on rolling pièces have made a huge improvement to the flying expérience for us (I hate to fly for more reasons than I’ll bore you with) and I’ll be picking up another pièce (extra-large) soon, as the large doesn’t really expand well, which we discovered after doing more shopping than intended on a récent trip. We whole heartedly recommend Briggs & Riley luggage!
