OG Party Suit Wearer
Seems like decent kit and a good price. Shipping from Oz to Canadia:I have a kit bag from these guys up in Byron Bay - good quality and good price. Not sure what shipping is like o/seas but free in Oz.

They also make some nice-looking leather bags for those who want a bit of free weight training or something to pack neatly in their Porsche or Jag:

Is it metal or laminate plastic?I have an all satin black Rimowa I use if I have to carry suits or jackets. It's a very rugged piece.
Metal. Dents are definitely part of it, but I am ok with that.Is it metal or laminate plastic?
I have had handles go, but the wheels have always been solid in my experience.Irrespective of the shell and for the newer production runs of the last 5-10 years, the weak point of Rimowa is the handles and the wheels, which frequently jam. This is experience of hardcore users with >100 flights per year, so if you only do 100 for the rest of your life, you might not care.
I’m interested to know what is and what is not covered by their famous warranty. Would this be covered? Next time I’m in their shop I’m gonna look into this further.The issue I've had with Rimowa handles is the little push button mechanism for setting the different levels of telescoping wear out. Never actually broken the handle itself.
I agree, wheels and handles must be the most important feature of a trolley. I don't think that currently any manufacturer offers something that is truly rugged/solid/travel-proof. Personally I have never used a wheeled carry-on, I think it is for tourists. It has the single advantage of not having to carry a few kg for a few km at most and a whole array of disadvantages. Doesn't make any sense to me. But if you want one, I guess Rimowa is a good choice, if only for their service and the design/nostalgia.surely they are the most important features?
I wrap pack everything including suits and jackets. I rarely use a garment bag, even when travelling by car. Think it's more convenient with just one bag.How are you all traveling with suits and jackets? Since most of my work travel is by road, I’ve just been carrying them on the hangers, but I’ve been thinking about getting the Filson garment bag.
