We are giving away a bag from the TORQ™ collection to one lucky winner. The winner will be allowed to select one bag from the three sizes (international carry-on, medium and large spinners), TORQ™ is available in Cobalt (blue), Graphite (dark grey), and Ruby (red). The TORQ™ collection features:

  • Briggs & Riley Control Panel (patent pending) that locks contents in the main and front compartment for the ultimate protection of valuables
  • Backed by the Briggs & Riley unbeatable warranty – TORQ™ is the world’s only hardside collection to be protected by an unconditional lifetime warranty

  • TORQ™ boasts a unique “secret middle layer” that is flexible and forgiving – preventing it from cracking
  • The ergonomic top and side carry handles are soft to the touch and the interior is fully lined with soft high-quality nylon
  • TORQ™ cases are made of Makrolon™, a high-performance material that can withstand the roughest handling, and is known for its resilience and pop-back properties
  • The carry-on boasts a lockable hardside front compartment which is gusseted and zipperless, sitting flush with the bag when closed
  • TORQ™ bags have a unique 80/20 top-lid opening, opening like traditional luggage, rather than the 50/50 clamshell opening and packing limits of other hard sided options on the market
  • Briggs & Riley designed TORQ™ with an exceptionally wide, tilt-resistant wheel base and proprietary recessed spinner wheels, providing for smooth and dependable wheel motion and gliding – allowing the bag to be tilted and carried on two wheels, or glided on four

  1. I have never owned a hard side bag.

    the lifetime warranty is a most useful feature for a fequent traveler.

  2. 1. I had a Samsonite hard-sided bag that I used in the 1990′s
    2. I think that the front pocket is the most helpful since it provides easy access to electronics or paper files while being in a protected and secured area.

  3. 1. never owned one
    2. the tilt resistant wheel seems to be the most useful for the frequent traveler since you’re going fast to catch the plane sometimes.

  4. Never owned one.

    The expand-ability would come in handy when you are trying to only have a carry-on!

  5. Used one in the past, but never thought of getting one myself.

    The wheels that are tilt resistant seem nifty since my luggage wheels always seem to snap off!

  6. Currently own a very beat up hard-case.

    The lifetime warranty is still one of the best features as you never know what kind of abuse you will run into at the hands of airline employees!

  7. I haven’t owned a hard shell, but I have to say these are gorgeous bags… and my favorite feature is the easy-access opening!

  8. I have never had a hard-sided bag. What I like most about the Torq is the easy-to-access front compartment.

  9. No. The unique “secret middle layer” that is flexible and forgiving – preventing it from cracking.

  10. no. The Outsider® handle system, TORQ™ which provides a flat packing surface and greater interior packing capacity.

  11. 1. No, I’ve never had a hard-sided bag.
    2. Smooth wheel technology sounds very nice.

  12. Never had a hard side bag. Lots of great features – maybe the best is wheel technology.

  13. I’ve never used a hard-sided bag. For business trips especially (and even for leisure — we all have tablets!) that outside pocket looks like a well-thought-out feature.

  14. 1. Yes, I’ve had a couple of hard-side suitcases in the past.

    2. I like the idea that these TORQ bags have the 80/20 top-lid opening like traditional luggage. One of my complaints with other hard-sided luggage is it requires too-much floor space to access both sides.

  15. 1. I have used hard-sided travel bags for decades.
    2. In my opinion, the TORQ™ feature that is most helpful to the frequent traveler is the unconditional lifetime warranty — because the more frequently you travel, the more likely it is that your luggage will be damaged.

  16. Never had a hardside bag. Most helpful feature is lockable front compartment for easy access to items needed while in transit.

  17. 1. I never owned a hard sided bag.
    2. I really like the zipper-less front side compartment, which would be very useful for when you need to quickly retrieve something – particularly when the bag is still in the overhead bin.
    Hope I win!

  18. I have never owned a hard shell bag, and I think that the best feature is the lifetime warranty!

  19. Would love to own a hard shell suitcase – the warranty is by far the best feature!

  20. I’ve been envying a hard-sided spinner for a while! This is by far the best looking hard-shell luggage with a pocket! I love the pocket. Plus, the lifetime warranty isn’t too shabby either. 🙂

  21. Never had a hard sided case before, but the front pocket is a really nice feature — especially for easy access in the airport.

  22. I’ve never had a hard-sided travel bag, although I’ve noticed that they’ve become quite popular so I’m curious about how great they are. My favorite feature of the TORQ is the exterior compartment, as the lack of one is a huge reason I haven’t purchased a hard-sided bag before. It will definitely be useful when traveling! 🙂

  23. Ive never had a hard side bag due to fears of cracking, but with Briggs & Riley, I am real interested! The 80/20 split is most interesting for me!

    Ive had other Briggs & Riley bags, and love them. So I’m real interested in the new carry on!

  24. Never had a hard side carry-on nor one with this many features. Love the lifetime warranty.

  25. Hello, my name is Kristopher.
    I work for Mori Luggage and gifts and we sell the Briggs and Riley TORQ collection, unfortunately we do not have all the pieces or colors in the collection, but the TORQ luggage that we sell is unbelievably innovative. By far my favorite Briggs and Riley collection. Not only does the new innovative design appeal to the modern day professional but the two side packing space and easy 360 degree maneuverability make this collection one to desire!

  26. I haven’t owned a hard side carry on but was looking for a stylish and dude-rific version. The most important feature to me is access to files/tickets/keys,etc. without opening up the whole case. I use one now that has become my constant traveling companion, but as a soft side, is showing its age. I know I am too late for your give-away, but would like to know if the smallest of your Torq front openers would fit under seats and overheads of the smaller regional jets without shoving which leads to scratching??

  27. I don’t have one yet.
    The best feature for me is the lifetime warranty because you don’t have to buy another suit case again
