Now that I am in the market for a short suitcase, I find myself noticing them everywhere. On a flight this week to DFW, the woman next to me had a fabulous white leather short suitcase. In the security line in the San Jose airport, the man in front of me had a very cool red Samsonite spinner short suitcase. They are everywhere!
Researching my options, I have realized that there are two types of short suitcases. The “rolling briefcase” and the “rolling tote bag”. While a rolling briefcase may be great for some, that is not what I want. I have a great briefcase-like bag (that I will be reviewing soon for all of you!) that I love, and no need for one that rolls. What I do need is simply a small suitcase, preferably a cute one, hopefully with spinner wheels.
Here are a few I found on eBags that I like. Decisions, decisions!
My favorite thing about the Victorinox Avolve Wheeled Companion Tote is, of course, the spinner wheels. It also looks like it will hold a lot of stuff and it’s very well priced for Victorinox. The colors aren’t that exciting, but hey, it’s a suitcase.
I really like this Briggs & Riley Transcend Rolling Cabin Bag. The Briggs & Riley brand is a great one, the red is a fun color, and the compartment is large and opens fully. It is at the top of my price range, but I am seriously considering it.
Readers, do you have a short suitcase? What brand do you have, and do you love it or hate it?
