Which luggage is better, the PNT 22" Stealth NG or the Vortex II by strong bags? Any problems getting either one under the jumpseat? Thanks.
Huge fan of Strongbags! Even fits in the -300. Lots of room, super durable, and the company will replace any part that brakes for life.
Strongbags original Vortex (now the Vortex 2) were specifically designed for the 737. Fits in all models. Yes, it does not fit wheels out in the overhead bins, but with all the stuff we pack in our bags, I'm not sure the stealth would either.
I've had a strongbag original Vortex for about a year and half. Absolutelty no complaints! The new model Vortex 2 is the exact same dimensions. The new model just redesigned a zipper pull issue they were having with the originals.
Plus, like said elsewhere, every part can be shipped to you for home repair! (even the exterior fabric!) That's what sold me.

The quality of the new Purdy (Luggage Works) bags are not anywhere like the quality of 10 years ago. That extra inch on the j/s between the classic and ng 737s makes a big difference for luggage storage.
