My favorite business travel bag is the 21 inch one-touch carry-on by Briggs & Riley. It is small enough to fit in tight spaces, but It is also expandable to carry extra items during long periods of travel. So when Briggs & Riley asked if I wanted to give away one free carry-on to Points, Miles & Martinis readers, of course I said yes. We get to share a personal story about our Briggs & Riley carry-on and give one lucky reader a carry-on of their choice from any Briggs & Riley collection.
My Personal Experience With Briggs & Riley Warranty
One of the reasons I love my Briggs & Riley is because they stand by their warranty. After three long years, my 21 inch one-touch carry-on finally gave in a little bit. One side of the handle wore down and would no longer lock in place. Considering the bag had it’s ups and downs going through an average of 50 weeks of travel per year over 3 years and included an average of 2 security checkpoints per week, 2 flights a week, 4 car drives a week and at least 2 shuttle rides per week. Needless to say it was well tested.
When the bag handle would no longer lock on one side, I simply looked up the nearest Briggs and Riley repair center, took the bag in, and explained I’d like it repaired from the lifetime warranty.
My bag was up and running in no time, with a new handle, just like new.
