I use Samsonite. It's in the same new condition as I had it 8 years ago. Been on probably 1000 flights during that time and 11 countries.

Got a regular roller for carry on and a check in size one for a total of 350. Worth it

There’s Hartman, travel pro... but briggs is my go to. Used to sell luggage in college and love briggs.

I’ve had my victrinox since 11 and it’s held up like a champ. Can’t beat the life time warranty even for travel damage

Rimowa, the only choice for a traveler with class

Globetrotter is awesome... but from a practical perspective, Briggs and Tumi give much more bang for your buck

Does anyone have tips for going to happy hour while expecting but I’m not at the point where I’m ready to tell all my coworkers? Do y’all just say you’re not drinking right now, or order a virgin/drink that looks alcoholic but isn’t? People seem to make a big deal whenever someone isn’t drinking so I’m trying to game plan with a few happy hours coming up.
