Some years ago, I opted for High Sierra luggage in a large duffel to use since I was going to be spending a month in India and didn't want several heavy suitcases. It did the job perfectly. I could not have been happier. I had one minor issue on my return to the U.S. in that the handle jammed in the "up" position but that was dealt with efficiently.
But that bag was too much bag for weeklong vacations in Florida or to visit my kids in far-flung cities across the US, so I went down a size but got the same bag. Guess what? I'm even happier with this choice as it has been practical, easy to use and has had NO issues of any kind.
So, as I was looking for a bag to replace the 20-year-old carry-on that was beginning to show its age (much like its owner), I went straight to High Sierra. I found the Grip Suitcase in blue, matching my other two pieces, and even found it "on sale". As a matter of fact, I looked at it and decided to sleep on it overnight and the price went down even more.
So, I have three pieces of luggage I purchased from High Sierra and a back-pack that completes the ensemble and I could not be happier. As my bride and I make our way through a happy retirement with a lot of travel plans, I'm delighted I have a range of choices when it comes to packing for the trip and whatever I choose, I know it will be reliable.
