Review Editor


Dave is an oddity of a mechanical engineer. He loves good design, enjoys writing, meeting new faces, and looking at other people's shoes rather than his own. Dave grew up and attended school in Pennsylvania, but the siren song of the mountains and outdoors of Colorado beckoned him westward. Dave is a lover of all outdoor activities and hobbies, leaving many wondering how he has time for it all. We'll let you in on a secret… he doesn't. Regardless, Dave enjoys snowboarding, fly fishing, running, swimming, cycling, mountain biking, adventure motorcycling, product development, cooking, and working on his never-ending project of a home. Dave is currently a patent agent registered with the USPTO, assisting those seeking patent protection on their latest and greatest ideas.

Osprey Ozone 28"

Osprey Ozone 28"

A great lightweight bag for light traveling or road tripping. Not recommended for checked luggage due to the aluminum tube frame.
Delsey Helium Titanium 25"

Delsey Helium Titanium 25"

A great looking and functionally smart hard-sided spinner styled to make an impression on everyone in the room. Best for occasional travel with lighter loads.
Lipault Paris Original Plume 26"

Lipault Paris Original Plume 26"

Eagle Creek Tarmac 29"

Eagle Creek Tarmac 29"

The Tarmac fell just shy of winning one of our awards, but still proved itself a durable and versatile travel companion for big trips. Bombproof zippers and smart functional design helped...
Samsonite Aspire Xlite 25"

Samsonite Aspire Xlite 25"

The Aspire Xlite wasn't the best option, nor was it in the top half. In fact, it was toward the bottom rankings of our overall testing, but still made us stop to think about at what level...
Samsonite Omni PC 28"

Samsonite Omni PC 28"

The Omni PC is a weight conscious cavern of a suitcase. This barebones, hard-sided spinner is for those that never have enough space,
Travelpro Maxlite 4 25"

Travelpro Maxlite 4 25"

Winner of our Best Buy Award, the Maxlite 4 features smart refinements to traditional features and a reasonably styled lightweight package at an astonishingly low price.
Rimowa Salsa Air 29"

Rimowa Salsa Air 29"

A good looking bag that is light on scale but not on the wallet, few praises were found for this suitcase. There are many bags for the same money (and much less) that will serve you above...
Briggs & Riley Baseline Large

Briggs & Riley Baseline Large

A killer suitcase in every regard, the Baseline almost won it all, but settled for second place due to its weight. This model will be harder on your wallet, but if you can afford it...
