    I've heard of that Rimowa model for RJs and I've seen Rimowas in person - lovely bags, but definitely out of my price bracket.

    I will admit I've looked at rolling luggage more than a few times, partly because it sometimes seems more professional (ie checking into a nice hotel) and maybe to see if the grass is greener. ...

    While I have no need for the Hero's Journey pack, I love the top pack on it. Has there been any thought to either selling it by itself or designing a new bag similar to it? (It does seem to overlap...
