Imagine the days before luggage with wheels…travelers were forced to schlep through airports, heavy bags in hand, or straps over shoulders. Thanks to US Luggage, that is no longer our reality. The parent company of Briggs & Riley, US Luggage was the first to introduce wheeled luggage in 1977, changing the luggage game forever.
Today, Briggs & Riley is continuing the luggage evolution with their new Transcend collection. These 4-wheel spinner style suitcases are sleekly – and smartly – designed with the traveler in mind. Whether you opt for the carry-on size or the larger checked-bag option, these suitcases account for all your travel needs.
With each luggage piece, there are multiple zippered pocket areas, ideal for storing socks and swimsuits, your passport, or holding toiletries. Need to fit a few more items inside? No worries – with a few easy clicks, the innovative design allows you to expand the luggage from INSIDE, providing an extra 2.5 inches of packing space, which we all know we need!
We also adore the Sympatico collection for its chic, hard-sided design. Also featuring 4 wheels, the Sympatico pieces glide through airport terminals with ease. Made of Makrolon polycarbonate, the hard sides protect your belongings inside and the CX technology lets you expand for 22% more space – should you need it. MORE expansion – music to our ears!
The Sympatico Collection also includes some great coordinating soft-sided pieces, which we use a lot both traveling and here at home in New York City . The compact U-Zip Backpack and Weekender bag serve as ideal pieces for short trips or weekend getaways. We often need our computer, camera or both when we’re venturing about in the city or heading to meetings across town. The black U-Zip Backpack is our go-to because it’s stylish and fits what we need without being cumbersome or bulky like other backpacks we’ve had in the past. Best of all, the chic, simple look transitions well from day to night.
Thank you for Briggs & Riley for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are our own!
