    I don't really understand the issue here. The purpose of luggage is to keep the contents together and keep them clean. Accepting dirt is part of it's function. It's designed with this in mind. Plus, well-used items have character and show the fulfillment of that purpose. Embrace it.

    how about these ikea bags? FRAKTA Storage bag for cart - IKEA

    Or (I hesitate to suggest this as Iím opposed to plastic waste) thereís usually a spot in the airport where you can get your bags wrapped in plastic. Many people do this when traveling for security purposes.

    YIKES. It may be years later, but so sorry, Rae.

    @Rae I remember seeing that thread for the first time--and it still makes me wince on your behalf. Frown

    I don't think I've worried much about checking my ballistic A45 or A30, and I've been lucky that so far they've both come through just fine (except for that one chalking incident...)

    However: @Robw in your shoes, I feel like a blank assurance about the unlikeliness of damage to TB bags, due to their tough materials and construction would make me crazy in the same way that I get when people say, "just check a bag and don't hog the bins! luggage almost never gets lost or delayed." Some people are luckier than others, apparently. I'm over 50% for checked bags getting delayed or contents damaged (by TSA), though I have yet to have one get lost permanently.

    I hope you can find a good cover solution, and if you do please come back and share it!
