I had a set of 4 suitcases 2 big ones a medium one and a holdall weekender type bag ... as a well as my vanity case. the medium suitcase got stolen luckily though i had the otehrs and id packed things across the suitcases so all my case had some clothes underwear sleepwear etc. so if something did go awol then id still have the others.
There were about 10 tops, 5 pairs of pants, 5 pairs of shoes and 2 pairs of pj's and a bikini were stolen as well as the case, which was a expensive one of a kind case i got made for me in a soft leather with my initials on it.

I actually like the gold Prada one, it seems to have a 'matte' gold finish which i like, but there is no way i am buying a suitcase that screams 'steal me!'

I am always really scared that my suitcase will get stolen at airports, so i try to have a suitcase which is as low-key as possible.

Samsonite is good.

My parents have had Hartmann luggage for over 20 years and I guess this classic style grew on me!

I have a tweed carry-on rolling bag like this:

I was recentely at the air port in DC and all I saw was black rectangle ones like the one aboove and I realized, if I need to get something then it has to not be black..and by reading your posts it has to not show wealth..how about a tumi?

i just have to second the llbean toiletry case. they may not be the sexiest things around, but they are very very functional and come in lots of sizes. i have two.

regarding luggage, i would not pay crazy $ for a name brand, personally. my primary suitcase is really fabulous quality (i travel a lot and have had it for 5-6 years) and i think i paid $150 for it and a carry-on to match (which my husband uses). it's heavy-duty nylon with great wheels.

as a carry-on, i usually use a big custom-made fabric tote. it's light, and i can throw it in the washing machine when i get home. it's all about function when i travel...

but if i had a private jet and someone to carry my bags, well... :p

I travel a *lot*. I've always had cheap suitcases -the most expensive would be a Samsonite. so far, knock on wood - nothing stolen. then again I carry on anything expensive. if I didn't travel so much I could have a red crocodile Hermes Birkin bag by now - and that's just from the past two years of vacations - I think I'm glad I chose the vacations!

agreed - LV and the like are for private jets. you really don't want to know what the crew or Homeland Security may do with checked bags.

Well this thread is great for me because I live out of my luggage (literally). MY luggage is like my closet/dresser. I have 2 navy rolling suitcases, a rolling duffel and a mini duffel. And they are what I keep all my clothes, shoes, bags/purses, makeup, toiletries, and hair stuff in. And they go with me evrywhere so they are very important. When I bought my luggage set, at first i wanted something really fun and cute but then my friend who had really gorgeous luggage got hers stolen so I settled for something more average. However my creative side got the best of me and I bought a silver permanent marker and decorated the luggage. I wrote little poems and drew drawings that reflected my travels and my life. I was afraid it would all come out looking cheap/cheesy but it actually came out looking quite artsy and it reflected me fabulously.

Coach has luggage and Im gonna get the wheeled trolley. In the black Minisignature, Im hoping noone will steal it. Also we have duffles and stuff, I cant justify all that but I do want it.

We also had a Jumbo signature wheeled trolley with a foot long python stripe down the front pocket with paprika suede on either side, part of our Exotic Stripe collection, it cost $1,200. Only 500 were made. It sold out in a matter of days. Python on luggage!?! That's a little over the top.
