Luggage suggestions?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I need to buy some new luggae for our family (we currently use various pieces we have had for more than 15 yrs - from before we were married). We have 2 kids - but they each have their own bag for smaller trips. We travel mostly by car but do fly once a year or so for a week or more vacation (this year Florida, nect year Bahamas or out west). We need some sort of suitbag and then the usual other pieces, both for the overhead and maybe a larger piece for when we travel by car.

We want a durable, quaility set, but priced within reason (i.e. we wouldn't buy a $500 piece). Last time I shopped (maybe 20 yrs ago) the mid range for qaulity was Samsonite. But now thre are so many choices.

Any suggestions would be appreciated?
