:wondering I was just wondering if you ladies and gents check your LV luggage when traveling? Aren't you afraid of it being mishandled? I've seen some very nice bags in your collection-- of course making me want to run right out and buy some luggage!! Thanks!! :P

There is really no point in buying really nice anything if you are going to check it. They have beaten the bejeezus out of every bag I have ever checked. I can appreciate that they have to work quickly, but it has to take a lot of force to rip off metal zipper pulls. :mad:

I don't own any LV luggage yet, but I have been thinking about getting a Keepall for travel. The last time I took a trip, I managed to get all my belongings into one large duffel bag. I think I will have no problem doing this with a Keepall. That way I don't have to bother with checking anything. I guess I am just a light packer.

I wouldn't risk it.. there are dishonest airport employees around the world, and I wouldn't risk having a $1000+ bag/suitcase get stolen or robbed with all of my stash in it.. I was thinking of getting a pegase, but after I asked here I concluded that I was better off with a keepall, and so I bought it and I'm so happy with it (although I've only carried it on one flight - the one from the country where I bought it). But anyways, you should get a nice keepall (55 or smaller) if you want LV-luggage, they are nice to carry around.

I will only check in if the size of the luggages are too big to be carry on. I've checked in my Pegase 70 only and rarely do I check in anything else. In terms of travelling more than 1 week, I will have 2 Pegase 60s carry on with us (my partner) and maybe another small keepall or Alize with me.

Also, I've bought luggage covers for the check-in luggages. This owner of this Website knows me too well by now.

They have lots of transparents plastic-looking cover made specifically any luggages in various models and brands.
