I really want a suitcase like the one in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld fantasy novels. It’s a wooden trunk with hundreds of little legs, and it is magical and will follow its owner anywhere. It’s called The Luggage.
In this reality, I have a Delsey flight-attendant-style suitcase (there’s a name for them, but I forget what it is). I’ve had it for about 4 years now. It’s a warranty replacement; the first one had some design problems. They replaced it very readily, though, and I’ve been happy with it.
The only thing I don’t like about it is that it’s black. Most suitcases are black, and it’s easy to pick up the wrong one by accident. Someone once picked up mine by mistake. Fortunately, the guy realized this before he left the airport, so I got it back. I have a red nametag on it now, which helps.
I’ve also had good experiences with Samsonite bags. Never tried Land’s End luggage, but I’ve found that their clothes are very high quality.
