[Amazon.ca] Briggs & Riley luggage - various pieces

High-end luggage backed by a lifetime guarantee that includes airline damage.

I couldn't really find a good source for Canadian prices, so I've included US MSRP where I could find it.

Main link is Baseline Medium Upright Duffle $329.40 (MSRP US$499)

Here are a few other pieces that I noticed are also on sale, but there are probably more:

Baseline Rolling Cabin Bag $257.94 (MSRP US$395)
Baseline Commuter Expandable Upright $278.68 (MSRP US$499)
Sympatico Weekender Bag $110.38 (discontinued?)

The Commuter Expandable Upright is a great bag... AC destroyed my old cheap carry-on years ago and replaced it with this model, and I've had zero issues with it, flying around 120k miles a year.

It's well made, the wheels are great quality unlike the cheaper bags where they start to fray or crack after too much usage or weight. It can hold great amounts, and fit into some of the smaller overhead bins with just a bit of a push.

Also, I see no wear and tear on it, despite the occasional gate checking of it.

I would grab a spare replacement one at this price... Except that I don't think I'll need to replace it.

After 20 years on the road they are the best. The premium for the warranty is worth it. These bags take so much abuse even ballistic nylon frays.

Having a complete set of Briggs and Riley for years (even had one replaced under warranty), I can understand the comment but don't agree with it. With the handle design outside, the bag may not be as stable when lying on it's back (ie on the handle assembly) as let's say a bag that has a completely flat back. What's the big deal about it? From my point of view, not much but you have to keep in mind when placing the bag on a surface. Also, with the handle on the outside, you actually end up with a slightly smaller interior compartment as the handle area counts as part of the bag.

On the other side of the argument, I love the fact that I can grab the bag from the outside handle design when the bag is swinging about the baggage claim area without having to worry if I can get a strong grip on the bag. Also, I don't have that divide inside of the bag from the handle if it was an inside handle.

I have both two wheel and four wheel luggage. Much prefer two wheel but to each their own.

I personally prefer luggage with two wheels. The interior volume of a 4-wheel luggage is less than a comparably-sized 2-wheel bag, which can matter with airline size restrictions. Also baggage handlers will tell you that they lift the bags by those wheels and they're pretty much the most likely thing to break.

I'm another B&R lifer. Converted back in 2014 and have slowly amassed a collection of their bags over the years. I don't need anymore right now, but it's still great to know when they're on sale. Thanks OP!

Thanks! I love the warranty and the designs. I recently converted too, and luggage is one of those categories where it helps to spend a bit more.

IMO the 40% off deal a couple months ago had better deals.

For me, the only time I find four wheeler luggage works better is when standing in slow moving cramped space lineups. Since they general have smaller wheels they just don't seem to roll as well over anything but the smoothest of surfaces.

this. ⬆ Really matter if you travel with a carry-on only.
