What do you mean good quality?

If you mean just need to survive the two weeks, almost anything goes, so long as it's large enough. Unless you're going to the South Pole or something? =D

If you're looking for absolute quality, and you'll be using that size for very long, then splurge on Samsonite, I guess. =( Definitely more than $100. If not, really, anything that is hard case and not too expensive should be ok.

what is so wrong with American airlines? You think SQ will treat your luggage gingerly? If you so worried, then don't take American airlines.

That has nothing to do with airlines. It really depends on that particular airport baggage handler. Airlines don't handle your luggage.

I was just kidding about the luggage handling... Anyway, so anyone wants to recommend me anything? Don't really want those hardcase ones as they are quite heavy and huge...

hmm......i just use echolac, kind of cheap, and so far, no problems after 3 years of usage.

btw, american airlines(or airport) do handle baggage kind of harshly. two of my lugguage belts broke when travelling domestic in US. did not have this problem when travelling SQ or asiana. so, just make sure you pack your things properly and cushioned.

I bought a big Samsonite luggage from Salvation Army thrift Store many years ago, only $25.00.
very good condition, got no problems in airport, so easy to identify my luggage, cos it is pink color.

Samsonite is very good but a bit expensive. But if you do consider the quality it's worth it. If you want some cheap ones, can go to Chinatown or check out the shopping malls. Carrefour always have some cheap ones. Quaity is not too bad.

Maybe they think you're too noob. :bsmilie: :bsmilie: :bsmilie:

But seriously though, if you're not going to use that luggage size that often, don't splurge. Simple!
