The best Suit Carrier we’ve seen
Luggage: Reinvented. The Briggs and Riley Baseline Suit Carrier (Garment Bag) has been re-engineered from the ground up.
Yes, it has the same basic features of any modern luggage:
- A retractable handle
- Built-in wheels
- Light weight
- Sturdy design
However, The Briggs and Riley Suit Carrier actually feels like some real thought has gone into the design.
Suit Carrier Pros:
- The outer shell is lightweight and incredibly robust. It is resistant to tearing and scuffing and has reinforced corners to protect the highest wear areas.
- The Lifetime warranty gives you complete peace of mind – even covering damage by airlines.
- The zips are double stitched for extra strength and have larger zippers that glide effortlessly.
- The solid nylon wheels are tough and give an almost effortless glide and can be removed and easily replaced if needed.
- The Outsider retractable handle means that 100% of the interior capacity is for your clothes while the flat interior surface ensures your clothes arrive wrinkle-free.
- Two mesh pockets keep your underwear separate. A zip pocket for shoes stops dirt or polish transferring to your clothes. A pocket for ties ensures they stay clean and flat, and a further zip pocket keeps your sundries in one place.
- Two sets of clamps will securely hang up to six suits while the unique design stops them getting squashed in transit.
Suit Carrier Cons:
- The Price – It is expensive when you consider you can get something adequate for a third of the price
- NOT A Flight Bag – At 61cm in length it is 6cm longer than the standard airline carry-on allowance
