This hard case expands up to 25% more to accommodate all your stuff

IMAGE Briggs & Riley

Here’s the story so far: Long, long ago, men carried (or their porters carried) wood-and-iron trunks, as in the things that look like treasure chests, when journeying to another city or country via train or ship. And then someone shrunk the bags down to the more manageable proportions of the suitcase for up-in-the-air travel. And then someone added wheels. And then someone shifted the orientation of the whole operation and added more wheels plus a telescopic handle. And then someone made fancy spin-any-which-way wheels, so that rolling luggage can execute a complicateded jig through the labyrinthe passageways of a mega airport. And then someone made these bags lighter and stronger and more secure and now also connected.

As the way we travel continue to change, the evolution of the luggage goes on, introducing more features like the new-fangled ability to announce their location or charge an iPhone through the magic of tecnology.


Solving something more fundamental than juicing up your devices, the Sympatico CX by Briggs & Riley allows you to pack more stuff. Just pop up the sides of its hard shell (imagine an accordion expanding) to create up to 25 percent more space for another pair of shoes, another suit, and your favorite woven blanket. Then, nudge it back down to return the luggage to original dimensions as well as secure all that extra stuff. Magic.

Obssesive types will also appreciate how the handles are installed on the outside of the case, an adjustment that creates an even surface within, which translates to even more space and also less wrinkles for packed clothes.

Needless to say, all the characteristics of modern luggage are present like a polycarbonate construction that makes the Sympatico feather-light but durable and spinner wheels that shimmy quietly over smooth, rough, and even soft surfaces.

And here’s the best part: The good folks at Briggs & Riley exercises a no-questions-asked lifetime warranty, so that things like torn straps or busted wheels can be restored, and your faithful Briggs can be part of your journey again.
