When airlines stop flying it’s not just the travel industry that takes a hit – all businesses associated with travel feel the pain – and if the latest sales are anything to go by, the luggage industry is clearly looking for ways to entice people to refresh their luggage even if they’re not quite ready to travel right now.
A little under a month ago I wrote about a fantastic sale that Amazon was having on a variety of Briggs and Riley bags (carry-on and checked luggage) and, somewhat surprisingly, not only is this sale still running but some of the deals have got even better.
Back in July, the deals on some of the Briggs & Riley Torq range looked pretty impressive and I couldn’t envisage seeing any further price drops…
In July, the best price available for the excellent Baseline 28″ Checked Spinner was just under $500 (and you had to buy it in blue)…
I can’t remember the last time I saw a Briggs and Riley sale go on for this long and I can’t remember the last time I saw as many good deals as are now available…but I’ve saved the best Amazon deal for last.
The best carry-on bag I have ever owned (I’ve owned a few!) is the bag I use today – the Briggs & Riley Baseline 22″ carry-on. The bag’s sturdiness is remarkable and the compression system that’s built into it is fantastic (you expand the bag to its greatest depth while you’re packing and, when you’re finished, you push down on the sides of the bag to trigger an inbuilt ratchet system which then locks the bag into place in its most compressed state).
A few weeks ago, I thought that the $372 price that this bag was on sale for was a great deal (if I didn’t already have one I would have snapped one up at that price) so you can imagine my feelings on the bag’s current price of $284.
To my mind, this is without a doubt the best carry-on bag available and, when you take into account the fact that it comes with Briggs & Riley’s fantastic lifetime worldwide warranty, this has to be one of the best travel luggage deals we’ve seen for quite some time.
Amazon Isn’t Your Only Option
If you can’t find what you’re looking for in the Amazon Briggs & Riley sale, you should head over to Briggs and Riley’s own website where the manufacturer is currently offering up to 50% off a number of its lines. There are some good deals on the Baseline collection (although you’ll struggle to find many deals on items in black)…
…there are more good deals on select carry-ons (although the Baseline 22″ isn’t included)…
…and there are some impressive discounts on checked-luggage too:
Amazon may have some of the cheaper deals around but don’t assume that it will be cheapest for all Briggs & Riley bags – I’ve noticed a few deals on the Briggs & Riley website that beat the current deals on Amazon.
The Amazon Briggs & Riley sale is still going strong and some of the deals have got even better since I first wrote about them a few weeks ago. The quantities of each item available on Amazon have decreased noticeably since the sale launched but if you can’t find what you’re looking for on Amazon, there’s a good chance that Briggs & Riley’s own website may offer a good alternative. Overall, however, the best deal of the lot is on the Baseline 22″ carry-on – at $284 this is probably as cheap as we’re ever likely to see this bag.
