Ok guys (and ladies) ..... What is a good overnight bag that can accomodate a big flight case attached to it? Everyone is telling me to stay away from the flight case with wheels and just get a regular one that can attach to my rolling overnight bag. My overnight bag is cheap and has no hook. Also, I dont think its big enough to hold a flight case. HELP!!

I have a travelpro, its works fine. I wish i spent the extra money and got the purdyneat bag. It fits nicer in the CRJ overhead bin.

www.stopoverstore.com has both brands and the prices are very reasonable.

Also, I hear alot of people talk about the Kirkland bag at Costco. Its $90 and it comes with a lifetime warranty. If it ever breaks just take it back to costco and they will give you a new one.

Enough
try this

www.Crewneeds.com Just got the larger one in the mail, it works great. Plus the owner is a regional pilot. All the benefits of the purdy neat, but cheaper to fix IF anything does break.

I just bought the one from Costco for 95$!! Its awesome. Built very well and handle extends out far enough to hook a flight case on it. Has a garmet bag built in that can be detached with a built in hanger for the hotel. Has a shoe holder. LIFETIME WARRANTY!!! The handle extension is made of aircraft grade aluminum. A+

I second that. The bag is made by Paragon Luggage and sold under the "Kirkland" label. If you don't want to get a Costco membership, you can get the same bag at several places online and at some department stores.

I bought a decent one at Walmart for $34.00. American Tourister too. It will last about a year but then again you have to buy 10 of them to offset the price of some of these bags. Jeeeeeezus!!

If you fly for a regional get the cheapest bag you can find with good wheels. Hooks for glight cases are an accessory which can be found in any luggage store. I've seen plenty of good bags get trashed or just plain lost. Not worth the bucks.


My K-mart store brand bag is two years old and still rolling fine. ($35)

Don't forget...it's a tax write-off every year...no receipt needed if it's under 75...get me!!!???

or search google for Paragon Luggage.
The name of the bag is Pathfinder TX2 22" expandable bag w/suiter. However, looking at some of these prices, you might be better off getting a Costco membership, like I did.:)

brookstone.com wants 200 for this bag

costco wants 95,

I need to find someone with a membership! to bad there is only one in the chi area that is like 25 miles away
