Briggs & Riley
Warranty: "Simple As That" lifetime guarantee for functional, not cosmetic, aspects of the bags.
CR’s take: As in years past, Briggs & Riley carry-ons receive top marks in our most recent member survey. The brand excels in all aspects of our ratings: ease of carrying and packing, wheelability, stowability, and durability. The company offers several ways for customers to get free repairs: mail-ordered self-repair kits, walk-in repairs at authorized locations, and the option to mail the bag back to the manufacturer. If you need to send your bag in, though, you’ll have to pay for the shipping. However, the company pays for return shipping.
