RIMOWAOn my way home from a recent trip, my checked luggage – a very cool roller bag that keeps a suit perfectly wrinkle free – was damaged beyond repair. Basically, anything on the bag that was breakable (like the collapsible handle) or rip-able (like the side pockets), ended up broken and ripped.

I loved that bag.

As a result, I have been looking for a new travel bag and I have fallen in love with the luggage of German manufacturer, Rimowa – in particular their Limbo collection.

About the Limbo luggage collection from Rimowa: “Rimowa’s elegant Limbo collection features Rimowa’s signature grooves in shiny Black, Seal Gray or Midnight Blue. The 100% polycarbonate cases are extremely durable, scratch-resistant and shock-resistant. Sturdy aluminum frames, aluminum corners and a luxurious interior further enhance the durability and design of the state of the art Limbo cases.”

Rimowa luggage is available in the US from authorized dealers like Luggage Pros.
