i agree, samsonite is a good brand :thumbs: kaya lang mahal hehe pero as in matibay ang quality.

my hubby and i bought his luggages in SM. there are lots to choose from doon and yes they give discounts din but i was shocked when i went to divisoria because we found the luggage that we bought in SM doon. as in, parehong pareho and there in divi it only cost Php800 samantalang dun sa SM Php1,800 and discounted price na yun ha! :blink:

sowwy po i forgot na hehe pero kasi yung nakita ko dun sa divi is hindi yun pirated kung baga local brand lang ang hindi immitation. i saw a fashionable luggage bag thr and its color pink and that is what i want to buy :D:luv:

yung nabili ng hubby ko sa SM na kaparehong kapareho sa divi is matibay. 2 years na nga nyang gamit yun eh.

Hi, I bought my Pink luggage with free Big Bag at Robinson's Department store. It wasnt so expensive but its good quality. Dont get ung prang plastic luggage kc madali masira un.....

what do you mean by parang plastic? yun bang parang ganito?

bags200773224221.jpg

kasi may type pa naman ako na luggage sa Benetton na ganyan ang style?how did you know na madaling masira yun? sayang naman type ko pa naman yun :(

I vote for getting light-weight luggage. I have a very durable 25" expandable bag, but it is easy to pack it beyond the 50 lb. weight limit allowed here in the US.

yup i agree with you :thumbs:

My husband got set of Pierre Cardin way back '90s and we're still using it until now. I thought it's really worth it although it was kinda' expensive.

However, when I planned my trip to Australia, his Pierre Cardin set was left to my husband's Camp in South Korea and the one that I got was too small… so we decided to buy a bigger luggage as well.

We bought one in Baclaran! And guess what? It was cheap, less than $20 for a gigantic luggage but then it was not worth it!!! The main handle broke down the first time we use it, then my husband fix it, it was a good fix, good as new, so I used it again, but when I used it for 3rd time going back to the province from Manila it totally ripped off that it is not “fixable” anymore, it was embarrassing because it happened in the bus station and I was problematic how to carry the luggage without the handle. My trip to Australia did not succeed and so as the luggage.

I asked my best friend if her luggage that we bought here in the Philippines (at Metro Mall) 3 years ago was still in good condition, she said yes and we bought it for less than $20 too.

In Baclaran where we bought that big luggage we had our ####### eye in choosing but then it was not a successful choice still.

I think you should trust stores like SM Malls, Pacific or Metro Malls, those Malls that got good reputation on what their vendors are selling. I saw the luggage from there are not that expensive. I saw one time in Power Plant Mall at Rockwell that there are luggage store there, they sell signature luggage but I think it will be cheaper than online shops.

Oh, also why not try Ebay?

hi pink Yup, prang ganyan nga, pero cguro meron naman matibay na ganyan, depende sa brand, dapat ganyan ang kukunin ko na style before, ung color pink kya lang panget sya kpag tumagal kc pwde mabasag kpag many times sya hinagis, saka lumulutong din sya kpag tumagal na at panget kpag daming gasgas, Mabigat din un ganyang luggage at prang hindi yata sya naeexpand. Sa airport pa naman lagi lang hinahagis mga luggage. Kya ang binili ko ung Pink Luggage pero tela sya saka madaling linisin at ang bilis kong makita sa Airport kc ung luggage ko lang ang pink.....hehehehe
