We had the same kick ass luggage for about 10 – TEN – years. It was from REI. We put it through everything on the road. We loved it like the 3rd member of the NVR team.
It eventually became unusable, so we had to switch things up. We went through a series of pieces of luggage that would last for 6-12 months. Most disturbing, a bag from Eagle Creek (we love their dopp kits) ripped within about a month.
A few months ago, we went back to the mothership – REI! Once again, we love our luggage. It's durable, well priced for the quality, and stylish.
Is a lot of travel in your future? Consider buying REI branded luggage. Like most of our endorsements, this one is unsponsored. If something we mention is sponsored, it'll be fully disclosed and something we really like.
