I got this one and the Tumi Alpha 2 Medium Trip Exp 4 Wheel Packing Case (I’m also a big TUMI fan) and decided to keep the “best” one. The breakdown was like this:
Tumi won. Cooler looking all around.
Briggs & Riley Baseline Large Expandable won. Longer handle.
Preferred the Briggs, as it holds things down better, with better straps. Can fit 2 jackets on hangers (I use the TUMI hangers), although barely.
Briggs has a narrower “profile” (because it’s wider), which brings me to
The Briggs is less “architectural” or something; less wasted space here and there maybe. The Briggs just holds MORE.
Briggs is like 5 lbs. lighter. An easy win there.
Sightly better / smoother on the Briggs.
Okay, so I don’t feel as “cool” with the Briggs, but it does have a nice look. Less likely to attracted a thief’s attention on the carousel, too. I have some tags and luggage straps to help it stand out.
Just an easy win for me.
The Briggs holds more in less space, and weighs less.
I still love my Alpha 2 carry on though.

I am a frequent traveler for business. Everyone told me to buy a Briggs & Riley. When the wheels fell off (literally) my old bag I purchased this one.
Pros: space is amazing, opens and closes easily, wheels roll easily and turn easily
Con: and this is overwhelming…it falls over constantly. The front wheels are smaller than the rear. As a result, of not positioned correctly, the bag falls over 100% of the time when packed. Now if I position the wheels correctly, it won??t fall…but it??s impossible to get this right every time….and down it goes. Constantly.
After three months I??m already in the market for a new bag. For all I love about this one, the falling over is more than I can handle. It has almost knocked people over on more than one occasion.
Note, it won??t fall when empty…only when packed and there is weight in the bag. It leans forward slightly and that weight transfer forward takes the bag right over every time. No, it??s not that the contents within aren??t secure. The issue is the wheels being different sizes.

Customer Questions & Answers
I’m sold on briggs and riley. deciding between baseline and transcend. any comments?
Differences include the density of the exterior fabric, the garment option in the lid pocket ( much more comprehensive and roomy in the Baseline), and the compression- expansion system is revolutionary, not only allowing for 20-39% more packing in the carry on, but offering variable capacity in all Baseline models. ??
i love the olive color but have experienced other bags getting very dirty first time checked, andy comments?
Answer: If you only plan to carry on it’s a non-issue but if you ever check you luggage, spotting this olive color it 10x easier than if it were black.
Does it come with a lock?
Answer: Yes, this bag comes equipped with a TSA-friendly combination cable lock.
Does this come with a name tag? Thanks!
Not a traditional name tag. There is a pocket (made of ballistic nylon) which contains a small card for your info (or you can place your business card in it). The card goes into a plastic sleeve which has some type of elastic band attached to the interior of the pocket. You have to pull the plastic sleeve out to vie??
Deciding between the medium and large. Does this easily go over the 50lb limit?
Answer: I find the medium to be perfect for getting right to 50lbs. Usually my wife will pack it tight and it??ll end up around 46lbs. With a large, it would definitely be over the weight limit. YMMV based on what you pack, of course.
