They make a nice 16" travel bag. There should be no problem using that as a carry on, right?

I have a 20" rolling bag. That's all I need. I'm not sure why you would need anything larger. I go three weeks in it.

Briggs & Stratton and Tumi are your best bets. Expensive but worth it. My TUMI is around 15 years old and still like new. I'm not sure how many miles it has on it, over half a million between land, air, and sea.

Simple. Because they choose to pack more than you do. Nothing wrong with that.

I have to tell you airlines now can destroy eve really good luggage. My wife had really expensive set of Samsonite they destroyed in two trips. I also never liked the largest size to handle at airports.

Exactly. Whenever my family comes up from the Cayman Islands even if it's only a weekend trip they will travel up with empty suitcases and return with at least 2 bags with maximum weight and 2 carry-ons. I know that travel like that isn't unique to my family, if you're ever in the Miami Airport and go by most non-US airline counters, you will see most passengers surrounded by several bags. You just don't know what a person's situation is when they travel, so there may be reasons that they need to travel with large bags.
