I have a new piece of luggage. We started buying Briggs and Riley luggage in 2005. I can't say enough good things about our two large 28" duffle bags with a lifetime guarantee. If any part, zipper, wheel, handle or strap ever has a problem, it is replaced free with no questions. Our first pieces have survived 6 trips to Italy and many domestic flights.

Since that first purchase, we have added a garment bag, two 22" roller bags, and the newest piece...the "double expandable tote". It matches all of our other B&R pieces, and measures 11x16.5x8 inches. It has three compartments: one for my laptop, one expandable center section holding a change of clothes, shoes and a nightgown in case my luggage doesn't make it, and another section for all my electronics/chargers, etc.. The center expands an extra 45% to even hold my pillow that goes everywhere with me! It also has a zipper pocket allowing it to fit on the handle of any of my roller bags!

I love my new bag, and I LOVE that it is packed and ready to go to Italy! Add my laptop, and I'm done! The smaller bag attaches to the larger bag with a wonderful special strap. That means I can wheel everything (all three pieces) with one hand, and have only my purse in the other!


I have everything I need (46 lbs) in my large wheeled duffle. The 22" roller is basically empty, although I did redistribute some of the weight into it. That means I can bring up to 50 pounds of food back with me! Whoo Hoo! Salute to Briggs & Riley!

Yeah! Space to bring back 50 lb of food-sounds like my idea of travelling. Have a wonderful trip! I'm quite envious right now.


Palma, that looks great! I've been fretting over my old carry-on, even toying with the idea of one with wheels (in the hopes it might be easier to manage.) But your arrangement looks perfect!

It looks like you are all set!

I think you are like Mark and me, we bring back many, many food and cooking related souvenirs. I am bringing an empty suitcase with me on the next trip and filling it up!

Love it...Packed and ready to go.

When does this bag board? Are you going to call me when you get here?
