A friend sent me a video showing how easy it is to open a zipper on a suitcase with a ball point pen.
Yikes!

Here's one:

I've found some large suitcases that have wheels and are hard-sided with no zippers. I'll get one for the rare occasion I check my bag.

But I can't find something similar in a small size required by some smaller European airlines. 15" long or less. It doesn't have to be hard-sided. Just fully lockable with no zipper.

I usually travel carry on and take red eye flights to Europe. I don't want to worry about my stuff when I sleep.

If you have any tips (perhaps a wheeled computer tote or similar?), I'd love to read them.

TIA!!!

Pacsafe says they use zippers that cannot be opened with a pen like that:

I've got a couple of their larger wheelies and they're pretty solid bags even before you get into the anti-theft aspects.

Halliburton does make really high quality cases and your computer inside one will survive the plane crash that kills you. I think I'd take them over Rimowa, which also does aluminum zipperless. The problem is that Halliburton is also in the same price range as Rimowa, which is essentially a German luxury brand.
