Good quality hand luggage?
I'm flying more often for 1 or 2 night trips and looking for a piece of quality hand luggage to take instead of my North Face duffel bag + laptop bag (not the best look walking into meetings)

I have had a samsonite large bag before and it wasn't too bad, but killed it quite quickly with a lot of international travel.

who makes quality sturdy bags that look reasonable?

In my experience, Zero Haliburton or Filson.

Samsonite is made in Vietnam shit, it's for the brand name junkies.

How about a North Face Rolling Thunder 32L?

I've been considering it, but would it meet the carry-on restrictions of most airlines?
*edit: most sites say it does meet requirements, but I've checked it out in person and it looks a little big?



I've never owned North Face gear before, I know peeps fap on about them being rugged, but anyone with some personal experience would be appreciated.

Rimowa is also worth thinking about. Similar to Zero Halliburton, but their 21" roll aboard is 2 lbs lighter than Z-H's Polycarbonate:

Girlfriend just took this to Europe with her as carry on. She's raving about it and I just picked one up as well. The build quality on these Crumplers is great.
