Briggs & Riley BRX Explore 22 Upright (Giveaway)

June 7, 2010

A very happy Giveaway Monday to you!

I need to introduce you to Briggs & Riley’s new line of luggage, the BRX, perfect for families that need exceptionally functional pieces that are lightweight, rugged and durable(!).

With the airlines imposing fees for checked baggage, I make it my special project to pack our family of 4 into 2 carry-ons, and for this reason, I’ll be talking about the Briggs & Riley BRX Explore 22 Upright here…

This weekend I flew solo to Michigan for Girl’s Weekend (more on that tomorrow) and I was pleased as punch with my new carry-on.

Here I am entertaining myself during a layover (I’m sure my fellow gate mates were slightly curious why I was photographing my luggage):

This is a very well thought-out and designed carry-on.  There is literally a place for everything.  I love the exterior open pocket for my tickets (I’m always losing them in my purse), magazines, etc.

Inside, a roomy compartment for clothes, dob kits, and shoes.  (Those are my dirty clothes making the lid pocket bulge.)

But my all-time favorite feature of this bag is the padded laptop spot in the front pocket.  Obviously, I’ll only use this when I’m carrying my bag on board, but I’m thrilled I don’t have to carry it in a separate bag.

But never mind my babbling, here are the real features:

  • Weighs only 7.0 lbs
  • The Outsider® handle system allows for more interior space.  Bars are on the outside for a spacious flat packing surface inside.
  • Easy pack main compartment with wide nylon compression panels keep your gear flat and neat
  • Inside top lid features wet/dry pocket and essentials compartment for additional organization
  • Quick access front pockets and two exterior, zippered front pockets offer space for accessory items
  • Expandable slash pocket perfect for light jacket, guide books or maps
  • Tapered zip expansion keeps bag lightweight while maximizing carry-on capacity
  • Front zip compartment stores up to a 16″ laptop(!)
  • Simple as that® lifetime warranty even covers airline damage

Here’s the happy news:


You can win a Briggs & Riley Explore 22 Upright ($290) just by leaving a comment by Friday, June 11th and I’ll choose the winner using on Saturday, the 12th.  You can even pick your color: slate, blue or amber.

    I’ve had a total of 4 different B&R models. They are by far the best, and the company stands behind their stuff. Love to add this one to my collection!!

    These are the best cases I have ever seen, I have been a user of the transend cases for years but the BRX look more casual less structured for my lifestyle!
