newest lightweight luggage

Jump to last reply

O.K., I know that this topic has been discussed over the years, but I need new luggage. I have been using a Victrinox Werk ever since they came out. It received great review everywhere. I absolutely hate it. That skinny handle flips the suitcase and then you have to stop, flip it back and try to keep moving. You cannot fit a top bag on the handle because it is so skinny, it just falls around to the bottom. This luggage refuses to die, but we are going to retire it and move on to something smaller and hopefully better. It is a 22 inch.
When we travel to Europe and change to Air France, I am afraid that the 22 inch won't make it as a carryon on the jump from Paris to Florence.
Does anyone have any suggestion for a lightweight 19-20 inch suitcase? I went to the Air France website and it was very vague about the size...Sometimes the larger cases get through and other times they are sent to the bowels of the airplane.. This is one reason I want new luggage. We are carryon people and from now on will be going on 2-3week jaunts and need to downsize. Thanks so much, Brownley
