rick steves bags: where to buy

ebags.com doesn't seem to carry Rick Steves (at least I couldn't find them). Amazon prices don't seem that great. Does anyone know best place to purchase?
Thanks.

Thanks for reply, Tom. I'm hoping to be able find someplace that discounts the luggage. I've never bought RS before. Perhaps one can't get discounts on that company? (The fact that ebags doesn't carry the line suggests that.)
I'm also curious abt some reports I've been reading concerning the 21" carry on-- that it's larger than that (and also heavier than advertised) and that people have been unable to board with it.
In short, I'd love to be able actually to inspect it somewhere. But, again, that may not
be possible with this company?
(Someone thought that Rei might carry the luggage, but when I telephoned them, they'd never heard of it.)

REI had it on their website last fall because we debated about picking up another one.

Can you share who had a problem using it for carryon? My DH travels almost every week with it and uses it for carryon, and we flew Air France with it. It fits within AF's measurements, but it is possible to stuff it so much that it would be over their weight limit though.

Hi mms: the review was on Amazon. I found the bag and then looked under "most helpful critical reviews." I always find the critical reviews of any product as helpful as the positive reviews-- sometimes more so.
I really do like the look of the bag-- I wish I could find it (at a good price).

I just used the 21 inch for a two week trip to Europe; no problem getting on. However, there's a way to unzip around it and enlarge the capacity--but doing so might put it past the feasible dimensions for carry-on. It definitely worked (size and weight wise) without expansion. I bought it through the website.
