Briggs & Riley is one of the better luggage brands, I have two of their bags. They have a lifetime warranty, and stand behind it the way that Tumi used to years ago.
The Briggs & Riley Torq Hardside 29″ 4 Wheel Spinner is 40% off right now at Amazon, so
$569 $339. It’s available in three colors at this price.
I wouldn’t pay over $500 for a checked bag, I don’t check bags often enough to get much use out of it. Although I currently expect to check bags three times this year which is more than normal. I’ve found that expensive luggage can actually be worth it, at least for my carry on, with as often as I use it. I’ve definitely graduated from the $50 Staples bags.
I’ve also been converted to four wheel bags, I used to be a purist but they’re so much easier to cruise through the airport — doubly so for a checked bag that’s heavy. At $339 this hard sided bag is a steal.
