That kind of thing IS my bag, baby

We need new overnight bags, suitable for weekend car trips or a night at Grandma/Grandpa's. I don't think I've ever owned one of these that wasn't a hand-me-down from the back of someone's dad's closet. Can you help me find some good Christmas-able options for 1) my husband and 2) my currently-tiny daughter? [more inside]

Bag!... Lady? : ISO Bombproof-But-Pretty Messenger Bag

I need a messenger bag that's, 1. Capable of withstanding a nuclear blast, aaaaand, 2. Somewhat feminine (in a "spunky pigtailed tomboy" way, not an "appletinis and selfies with the besties" way). Despite being REALLY GOOD at Googling, I can't find one. Rugged Cordura snowflakes within! [more inside]

How Can I "Piggyback" My Carry-On to My Rolling Suitcase?

I own a weekender bag and a rolling Eagle Creek bag (front view, rear view). I often use the two together, but haven't figured out a way to attach the former to the latter (so I can roll both). Any suggestions? [more inside]

Packable/collapsible shoulder bag

Hey mefites! I'm looking for a shoulder bag that packs down to nothing that I can throw into my luggage. I would use it to carry essentials on the other side. Timbuk2 magic messenger fits the bill but is no longer sold. Sea to summit sling is an option, but is there anything else out there?

Help, I need to buy a new suitcase in Midtown Manhattan!

My old suitcase finally gave out on me. I got it off the luggage carousel at LaGuardia this morning and the frame is separating from the rest of the bag. I'm worried it will fall apart if I try to fly it home to Minnesota on Friday morning. I'm staying near the Chrysler building and I should be free from 5-6 pm tomorrow evening. Is there somewhere nearby where I can buy a new suitcase that isn't going to break the bank? I hate spending a lot on luggage, but I also don't want to lose or ruin my stuff.

What's the name of this kids' scifi anthology I remember?

I read this book of short stories years ago, and for some reason I remember most of the stories in it but have had no luck with Googling for it. Must be that the stories' premises were creative enough or caught my imagination in a particular way. The most memorable story was about trying to survive on Earth after a supernova. I'm pretty sure these are all from the same book: [more inside]

Recommendations to prevent bedbugs in hotels.

We will be travelling soon using different hotels I'm not familiar with. Now I do my spot checking for bed bugs. I'm more concerned with clothing. When travelling I hang up as much as I can in the closet and then try to leave everything else in the suitcase. But it's really difficult and I would like to have this stored in bags. What bags do you recommend are best to buy that we can keep everything else in but that they will stay well sealed. Can we leave these bags in hotel drawers? Is a luggage liner suggested? what else should we get? I'm so unclear with the reviews on the internet. I want to do my due diligence and try to be reasonable. Thanks.

What's the toughest nail polish? Looking to cover a logo on a suitcase

My suitcase has logos on it. They're small, but I'd like to obscure them to lower my likelihood of being victimized. Examples are here. It looks like there's a small dollop of clear, rubbery, plastic that covers them - to protect logo. I was thinking of buying some black nail polish, and painting over them. Nail polish is supposed to be durable right? However, I've never had to buy nail polish before. Questions: 1. Is nail polish the right product for this? 2. Which brand / type should I get? Are there ones that are more durable than others?

What's the optimum carry-on rolling bag size?

On a recent trip from the US to Canada, my girlfriend's carry-on rolling bag was taken away from her on some flights, while mine was not. Strangely, they were picky on the A320 flight, but not the flight on the smaller Dash-8 propeller-driven plane. So, what's the optimal size for a carry-on rolling bag? [more inside]

Looking for smallish canvas and leather tote/briefcase

I'm looking for an everyday, tote/briefcase-type bag; smallish, around 12x9" and maybe 5 or 6" wide, made of canvas and leather, hoping to keep the price below $125. Any suggestions? I saw something on the train today that looked perfect, but I can't find it online. The brand was "Yosemite", which is tough to google. The logo on the label was a stylized sun with a face. Can anyone help me find that company or a different bag that fits the bill? [more inside]

Best semi-pro sewing machine for heavy fabrics?

What pro or semi-pro sewing machine would be best for a home sewer opening an Etsy store that sells denim, canvas, and Cordura (1000 denier) luggage and other bags? Ability to sew lighter fabrics as well would be a plus, as would overlock capability (a separate overlock machine would also work). This is for a class project and hypothetical, so price is no object.

Forwarding a suitcase from Italy to Toronto

Currently I'm in Italy. In March I'll be travelling to Scotland by train and making stops along the way. Then I'll be flying home to Toronto. My problem is that I have a lot of luggage that I needed for an extended professional stay in Italy, but which will only serve to encumber me when I go traveling. What is the best way for me to forward one large (standard checked baggage) suitcase home to Canada from Italy when I head out? I would especially appreciate any advice based on personal experience.

What kind of luggage to take inter-railing in Europe

In October we're going travelling around western Europe by train for several weeks and I need to buy some kind of luggage. I had thought that a ~35-45 litre backpack would be about right, sizewise and for portability. But I've heard from people with direct experience that pickpockets are a big problem in several of the places we're going and that makes backpacks a bad idea. So what kind of luggage should I use that will be reasonable to carry around but still secure given we're changing locations (and thus hotels) regularly. [more inside]
