    I have mostly older 2 wheeled Travelpro Platinum stuff. The wheels fell apart from being stored in the garage. I have repaired most of them. Some are a PITA. Rivets have to be drilled and redone etc etc but all came out well with new skate wheels. Travelpro corp. is local in Boca Raton. They would have warehouse sales and let you go into their backroom and buy seconds and brand new returns for pennies on the dollar. That's how I acquired most of mine.

    I never had a spinner and most of my stuff is check-in rather than carry on. I ended up buying an Eagle Creek Tarmac AWD. Pretty cool features. You could piggyback a smaller bag on it and bungee a jacket to it. This is perfect for a night or two.

    I have an Eagle Creek Cargo Hauler duffel I use almost every weekend. It's made really well hence the reason I bought the luggage.

    They stopped the warehouse sales about 6-7 years ago. People would line up at 6AM to get in there first and get the good stuff. Call them and see if they have the backroom still open to the public. As of 3 years ago it was still open but I have so much shit I don't need anything. It's as is though. You can't send it in for repair. On the older models the entire inside needs to come apart and the rivets need to be removed from the plates to replace the wheels and axles. I had to order special rivets. My regular rivet gun wouldn't handle it either. I had to buy a heavy duty one from HF but it worked perfectly and I was able to save some expensive to replace pieces. The newer ones are easier to work on. Their higher end models will last a lifetime. You just walkin past the front desk and the backroom is two lefts. It's off Military north of Glades across from the P.O. in the warehouse area. I had a wholesale furniture salesman friend (RIP) that traveled for a living turn me on to them.

    This is my rig. A Luggage Works Stealth 22. It’s pretty much the top of the line for airline professionals. The small bag in the front is an insulated feed bag from E-Bags. I mainly use it to carry my headset and iPad and some snacks for the trip. Half my life is spent with just these 2 bags.

    Travel Pro is crap. They just don’t hold up very well to heavy use. A pilot or flight attendant might get a year’s use if they are lucky. I get about 5 years out of a Luggage Works bag, and I abuse the hell out of them. Travel Pro used to be good about 20 years ago, but their manufacturing moved to China and the quality has really suffered.

    But how big of a cloud of vape can you get from your rig bro? You are sacrificing quantity for quality.

    I’m not following your line of questioning bro. Sorry. I’m sure it’s very funny though. Bless up.

    They claim they were founded by pilots. I don’t have any of there new stuff so I can’t speak to that. There old stuff while heavy and bulky is pretty solid. A lot of the PGA tour guys use Club
    I don’t have any of their new stuff so I can’t soeak to that. They claim the founders were pilots.

    Any opinions on Club Glove luggage?

    Not sure about Club Glove. Travel Pro was started by pilots and their stuff was solid. They, of course, sold out and now they are on a beach somewhere.

    I never heard of the stuff you are using. Looks really well made. Those who know, know.

    Endocrinologists use a chart based on the parents heights to figure out how tall the children will be. Of course it isn't always right as there are exceptions but mostly it's pretty accurate.
