Randy Petersen has taken to YouTube to explain his endorsement of the Lands End Flighwise bags.
I’m more of a rollaboard kinda guy, I like my Briggs & Riley 20″ but for more value-oriented quality the Travelpro Crew 7 is a good bag at more like $125 instead of the $279-ish that the Briggs & Riley usually goes for.
And for my laptop, I’m still in love with the Tom Bihn Checkpoint Flyer.
Randy says in the video that he’s never found a bag with a strap he liked before the Lands End one, but I really do have to recommend Tom Bihn’s absolute shoulder strap — not cheap at $30 but the most comfortable thing I’ve ever carried a bag with.
Still, these Lands End bags aren’t expensive, less than the TravelPro Crew series, so if duffle is your thing and Tom Bihn is too much dough, might just work.
