Some gifts are one-note wonders. A boho sweater is great. Until the style changes. Or the sweater starts looking pilled and tired. But some gifts, literally, last a lifetime. (And, unlike a sweater, never, ever go out of style.)
Briggs & Riley luggage, one of the most iconic travel lines ever made, is state-of-the-art luggage. They hold patents for features like the Outsider handle design that allows you to access a pop-up trolley handle. The best thing? The handle is not on the inside of the bag, so you don’t have those annoying (and space sucking) bars inside your packing space. Plus, CX expansion compression system, allows these bags to expand up to 33% then compress down to original size.
This is a gift that is not only useful (in a non-vacuum cleaner gift kind of way, but a yippee vacation kind of way) but it is a gift that keeps on giving.
If your Briggs & Riley bag is ever broken or damaged, even if it was caused by an airline, the company will repair it free of charge. No small print, no tricks.
The company touts the lifetime repair guarantee as “a sign of their integrity”. But I think it is a sign of a really, really good gift.
