Briggs & Riley Travelware flies and also floats thankfully says Jon Hammond

Jon Hammond: "Since 1981 I have been flying with a Zero Halliburton Pilot case and a Kart-A-Bag

by Remin baggage cart, ever since my first flight aboard Air France Concorde to Paris CDG

from JFK.

I never thought I would change this combo until recently, now with extra restrictions on

carry on luggage, it's hard to get the Kart-A-Bag unit on in addition to my bags, so I went for

the finest in rolling carry on baggage, Briggs & Riley with the "Simple As That" Lifetime


"It's a good thing I did, because recently while getting on a friend's yacht in

Sausalito CA with music and video equipment for the annual Fleet Week Blue Angels show, our

Briggs & Riley baggage loaded with expensive video equipment and microphones fell in to the

water at dockside to my horror...but miracle of miracles, the Briggs Riley baggage floated!

All the equipment was bone dry when we fished it out of the waters of San Francisco Bay with

the boat hook. What a great feature!"

You can say I'm a happy camper, because if it had been my well traveled Halliburton aluminum

case, it likely would have sank to the bottom with all my gear and irreplaceable camera

masters inside, plus fine Superlux and Sennheiser microphones..no doubt about it.

My new travel profile:

Jon Hammond old travel profile:

Jon Hammond recommends Briggs & Riley Travelware for the professional traveler, with The only

warranty that covers it all...B&R says "If your Briggs & Riley bag is ever broken or damaged,

even if it was caused by an airline, we will repair it free of charge. Simple as that!"

"And it floats!" Try the new extra rugged Baseline models.
