LARGE lightweight luggage

Jump to last reply

I have enjoyed the extensive discussion re: lightweight luggage -- focusing on carry-ons. I am interested, however, in hearing ideas about sturdy but lightweight packing solutions for large loads. I live in rural Africa and travel to the US every 18 months or so. Heading back to Africa, I take two 50-pound suitcases, filled to the brim with medical supplies, shoes, books, etc: all kind of items not available where we live. I want to use as much of my weight allowance as possible for stuff, rather than luggage. But I also need something durable, as these are rough trips. Wouldn't even necessarily have to be suitcases -- some other type of durable container could work, as long as I'm able to move it. Any ideas? I've heard a recommendation for a luggage line made by Tutto. Any experiences with it? Thanks in advance for your help.
