Latest Bags & Handbags Reviews
Very cute and well made, but much too small for me. Back it goes.

Just received the bag and did a "water test", held up much better than the black hole by Patagonia. NF bag interior of the bag stayed dry even at the corner seems, the black hole failed at the corner seems. I have four issues to improve the bag. Add a shoulder strap. Move the back pack straps to the bottom of the bag, they get in the way of the handles and the opening and zipping of the bag. Add a divider to the interior of inner mesh pocket. Add an exterior pocket. With these additions the bag would be perfect.
OK, so I've been using a Lipault Plume 22" 4-wheel carryon for a while, and it is a great bag. I can't believe how much you can cram into that bag. However, I've been eyeing those carry-on baggage sizers, and reading that some airlines are getting stricter about that, and I'm afraid that my fully stuffed Lipault would never squeeze into one of those sizers. Having purchased a larger Rimowa as my checked bag, I decided to try the Salsa Deluxe as my carry-on. With a semi-hard shell, I doubt that I could stuff it so much it wouldn't fit in the sizer. You might think I could just use some restraint on packing the Lipault, but alas, if I can squeeze one more thing in the bag, I will. And one more ... and one more ... Don't you think I'll need another pair of shoes?... So on my most recent trip, I used the Salsa Deluxe. As I noted in my review of the larger Salsa Deluxe, using a "clamshell" type of bag takes some getting used to. The Lipault has one cavernous cavity that you pile everything into before you flip the top down and zip it up. (The Lipault also has a pocket on the front that I've used for my laptop, and I kind of miss that on the Salsa Deluxe - but not too much - now I put the laptop in my "personal" bag - or, ooh, I bet I could just unzip the top of the Deluxe and slip the laptop between the two compression layers). The Salsa Deluxe takes a little more strategic planning, as half of your stuff goes in one side, and half in the other. But the Salsa Deluxe has that great compression system, which really keeps hanging clothes from shifting around and wrinkling; I appreciate that, because I do like to bring clothes on hangers. In any event, both the Lipault & the Rimowa are great, but I gotta say the Rimowa has a much more sturdy handle; the Lipault handle will flex and twist (especially if you overstuff the bag), causing you to use more effort to keep it rolling smoothly; the Salsa Deluxe is rock solid. I haven't done a head-to-head comparison on how much I can stuff in each bag, but I do know that the Rimowa is easier to glide along, and is better at keeping the wrinkles away - it's my new go-to bag.
