tumi on sale. very frequently have up to 40% off, esp around holidays. careful not to get t-tech or tumi outlet products - those are made more cheaply with worse qc. source: family member used to be a design engineer for tumi

yeah my checked luggage is tumi as well - just my carryon that’s rimowa

I bought the TravelPro Platinum Elite and loved it except it has these weird nonremovable attachments inside right in the center of the compartment which make it not possible to pack my shoes around them. I considered the TravelPro maxlite or their flight crew line but those are both so ugly

Get your preferences so take this with a grain of salt … the Tumi Alpha 3 is currently my favorite. If you’re always traveling first (or with the top status of a given airline) it’s the best for keeping clothes nice and straight from destination to destination. The front compartment opens up and holds a small garment bag sufficient for two suits. So - you can open it during boarding and they’ll hang it in the closet for you. The clam shell then allows you to cram everything into the other half. Also, while outside your price range, the wheels and handle and other hardware are guaranteed for life (though I’ve yet to need to exercise that guarantee). Also have my eye on the Arrive’. Again - my two cents (I’m a huge fan of practical luggage, especially as it concerns not needing to iron clothes upon arrival).

Just get tumi - you should have at least a 40% discount through work

You have somewhat of a point. I never check my LV luggage, but Tumi isn’t quite that lux. I’ve never had my Tumi stolen. And I never carry on luggage these days. Unless it’s a garment bag or a duffel bag. And that. Has been not at all lately.
