Your luggage brands have to be roomy as a cruise liner, tough as nails and nimble as a cat. Most luggage is made from ballistic nylon with an assigned number. The number stands for how dense the weaving is.
Briggs and Riley products use very dense ballistic nylon fabric up to 2520D. This makes their bags water repellent, highly resistant to scrapes and rips and durable for years to come. Most Briggs and Riley bags are designed for optional expansion. Best of all, the company provides a lifetime repair guarantee.
The ideal backpack must be light, easy to organize and sturdy. It has to fit in the office or on the hiking trail.
