Looking for luggage with built-in garment bag.

Patridge Family-design luggage in Tokyo station store

Help me find the cool, colorful luggage we saw at a luggage shop in Tokyo Station and are now regretting not buying. It was a small, wheeled case with a purse/makeup bag included. The case was decorated with colorful squares of alternating hue, like the Patridge Family bus or what I think of as Mondrian design. Blue, white and pink were definitely involved, maybe also red. I think it was $140 American, but may have been 140 Yen. There are so many luggage stores there, though, and we didn't take note of either the store name or the designer. Likely a Japanese maker/designer, but unsure. Any tips would be much appreciated!

Suggestions for a decent day travel pack?

Can anyone suggest a decent smallish day bag to lug around while visiting a big city? We'll base ourselves at the hotel and would just need one to lug around for the day--something big enough for a couple guide books, maybe a light jacket, etc. Something that is relatively inexpensive, comfortable, and okay for both a man and woman to carry around would be ideal.

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go.

How do I get a free airline ticket? I've had two airlines independently lose my luggage this week, and one airline sent me to another airport to get on a flight that was eventually delayed another few hours after my initial flight was cancelled. With all these inconveniences, and the fact that my current trip is open-ended, I'd like to fly home for free. How can I make this happen? [more inside]

Getting plastic smell out of new luggage

I bought a new suitcase recently, and when I got it home discovered that the interior (which is lined in some sort of plastic or vinyl) has a very strong plastic-y/chemical smell. I've tried leaving it open to air out, I've tried putting some dryer sheets inside and closing it, but nothing has helped abate the stank. I'm going on a trip on Thursday and don't want my clothes to reek of chemicals! Any ideas?

My wife and I are starting to plan our 1 month+ trip to Europe for this upcoming summer and I was wondering if anybody could recommend a comfortable, compact, relatively inexpensive backpack. We are going to be packing pretty light, as we will only have one bag each, and it needs to be small enough for carry-on luggage.
