Briggs & Riley Large Weekender 256 Review
It is supposed to be an enjoyable time when taking trips out of town. The last thing on your mind should involve worrying about luggage. I have taken my luggage for granted that it would hold all of my items that I needed. Also, that it would maintain its durability while I am busily walking and tugging on it. Unfortunately, my previous luggage has let me down during my hustle and bustle through airports and streets. My last experience traveling for a business trip was a horrible experience concerning my luggage. My flight was delayed, which put me running to get where I needed to be and I was pulling my luggage behind me. The next thing I knew my luggage felt lighter that it had minutes before. I turned around to find a trail of my items scattered all over the sidewalk. I was humiliated as people walked passed me and laughed. It took several minutes to gather up my items that I would not want the whole world to see and stuff them back into my bag. The zipper had busted clear down the seam of my luggage. There was no fixing it unless I wanted to replace the whole zipper, and I had no time for this. I had to bear hug my luggage and be careful that nothing else came spewing back out.
This had been the reason for my new mission of finding a durable bag made of good quality. I was not going to experience that again because I was horrified. The luggage I am searching for has to be made good enough to not let me down and be able to handle my busy schedule. I have found a luggage bag that is made for tough traveling and any type of weather conditions. It is constructed of durable nylon and is expandable for more packing space. The review of the stability of this piece of luggage will hold up for all of my travel needs. No matter if the terrain is rough or if it is a smooth journey; this bag seems to be able to handle it.
It is designed to hold all the things I need without being weighed down and bulky. The weight of this bag is a little over two pounds. Being able to use the lightweight luggage will help me move quickly on foot to and from my locations. The zipper is made of Racquet Coil and it is constructed to be extremely durable. The quality of the zipper is a feature that I am looking for considering the luck that I have had with luggage zippers. This luggage bag has a locking feature and is self-repairing. No matter how much wear that I put on the luggage the zipper will stay in tacked. I can carry it or drag it behind me without worrying about losing my items that I have packed inside. The main storage area has a lockable feature. When I am on the move I can lock it to have a double safety that my items will stay inside the luggage and not be able to fall out.
The inside lining of the luggage has a light color which is designed to help locate items faster. This is a nice feature and would save me time digging through my luggage to find one item. I would be able to see the location of the item and retrieve it quickly without disturbing the rest of my packed items. The outside of the luggage has a quality water repellent feature that will keep my luggage from being soaked by rain or puddles. The color will also stay looking new because is made to not fade or run when it gets wet.
I would not have to worry about this luggage bag looking old from wear and tear because it is equipped with a self-healing technique. It protects against scratches and abrasions that would normally make it look hideous after the first couple uses. This luggage will allow me to be rough on it which is my norm; and not look like it was put through a rough time. After reviewing this product, it would be a good fit for me. All the qualities and durability that it entails, will help my travels become more enjoyable. This piece of large Weekender luggage is on my top list of new luggage to purchase for my next trip.
