I strictly use the samsonite spinner breifcase, that has wheels that let it roll in any direction. Like the one above appears to do.

 

I have seen samsonite sold in LOS, but I am pretty sure they were original. Many places do have them, and they are a lot cheaper in LOS for the one I bought there. No telling about pricing though in LOS.. that could change between ST's on Soi 6..... just depends on how good business has been....

 

And not like you would think...... If they are having bad business, the price goes up not down, so they can still make the same amount per day... go figure

I tried to find a new Samsonite in Pattaya 2 years back, when my old one was cut open, but with no luck. Only sell in Bangkok was the standard answer everywhere. Ended up with some unknown to me, probably Thai brand, that has been working ok.

 

Anyone know where to pick up a Samsonite there, if I should have the need at a later point?

Many off brand products are great , But Luggage seems to be one product where the Brand names really do have better quality . Theres not much worse than watching you bag arrive on the carousel ripped to shreds ! Even thought they are all made in asian countries the western brands seem to be built a lot better . Some of the large department stores have their own house brands which can be as good at the "samsonites"

the thai stuff has always had horribly cheap attachments for the handles for me. with so much of that asian knock off stuff the cosmetics are great but the basics are lacking. i'm really hard on luggage and got tired of losing wheels on samsonites. now i go with victorinox. lifetime guarantee! they're as good as their knives!

Agree with briggs-riley--great bags with lifetime warranty. Mine is almost ten years old. No problems. (knock on wood!)

What... service... may I do you? Hmmm? You know I demand payment.--- I brought payment. Look! BAM!! An undead monkey! Top that!

Got a Briggs & Riley on a recommendation from the salesperson at a luggage outlet. I thought it was a bit of a ripoff by the high price, but seemed like a well-made bag so took a chance. Four years later, after lots of domestic travel, a few trips to Mexico, and about 12 trips to LOS - traveling around Thailand extensively every time, and that is the only bag still with me - beaten and dirtied, but not so much as a broken zipper.

For heavy traveling(every week) hartmann is the best quality and then Tumi.

thanks for all the top advice, i've looked up all the brands mentioned, some are really good but too pricey to justify.

decided to buy one here in perth, probably samsonite as first planned.

For guys trying to buy a Samsonite in Patt, is a Samsonite store in the new mall (Central festival)1st floor if i'm not mistaking,they had in the last few weeks 50% off on certain suitcases. Is also a Samsonite store in the outlet shoping area (next to the market).

I've got 3 Samsonite cases - only one bought in BKK & it is still going strong. Bought it because my other case was knackered at the MBK. But I usually buy my stuff in the UK.

I haven't had a problem with my Tumis which traveled about 300,000 miles so far.

My previous Samsonite lasted only about a fifth of that.

 

For price per quality, I think it's hard to beat Briggs & Riley too.

 

And when it comes to luggage, the proper ones are generally much higher quality than knock offs.

If you travel once or twice a year, cheap imitation would be good enough, but if you travel more than that, get a genuine luggage.

Delsey cases I had some years back but now I have some cheap Thai cases.

I have seen sams in MBK Bangkok.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
