I’m leaving for Italy in 2 weeks. My old cheap luggage finally gave out on me. I want to buy a carry-on wheel luggage.
I haven’t looked at the webiste you give so haven’t checked the weight of this particular B&R, but you ought to make the weight a consideration.
This 2 lb. difference might be important to you when packing.
What airlines do you expect to be flying? Some airlines have carry-on restrictions that are not only according to SIZE but also WEIGHT!
It’s the best luggage we’ve ever owned, and we’ve gone through a lot of bags over the years. B & R also have an exceptional warranty.
elizabeth, we have two pieces of Briggs and Riley. One is a 26-inch roller, the other a 21- or 22-inch carry-on. The latter is very similar to the B & R you’re considering.
I also have a B&R, the 24″ one, which I bought because of the great guarantee. I do like it.
I know that Air France, Alitalia, and British Air. to name a few. have weight restrictions for carry-ons, although they may not always enforce them.
But it’s heavy. It’s the heaviest suitcase I’ve ever owned. I stopped using it because I do a lot of train travel and lugging it onto and off of train platforms made me weary.

The emphasis here is on high-end, long-lasting handmade travel gear that costs a lot, but less than comparable lines sold in status stores. Glaser’s handsome travel and custom-finished leather/fabric garment and stadium bags cost $500 to $700; packing cases are in the $400 to $500 range. Customers have inspired innovations like the “insiders”—stretch-proof nylon mesh containers to organize travel goods. Business travelers also appreciate its Traveler’s briefcases, which double as computer bags ($700 to $800). Garment bags are designed to “stand” when folded so that they won’t collapse on your garments. You’ll find a few seconds year-round, but most customers are willing to pay premium prices for the regular merchandise and feel the quality/price/value ratio is reasonable.
