Default Carbon LW

Any of you have any reviews of the carbon fiber LW? Heard from a few people that it doesn't bend at all like the steel one.

I bought a used 21Ē international 2-wheel version of the Briggs & Riley off eBay. BEST $125 Iíve spent on that app/site. As you mentioned, their warranty is LEGIT! When I received the bag from eBay it needed new wheels, new handle and several zippers worn -worn/torn, so I elected to ship it to an authorized repair facility (depending on where you live - Google authorized repair shop/store) I actually took it to an overnight in Portland, OR. But the repair shop said that thereís soo many versions of B & R bags/handles that he didnít have the parts in stock. Yes, I probably could have just ordered the parts and done the work myself, but wanted to test the warranty. So I paid $50 to shiip it to a place in NJ and a week or so later got what looked like a new bag AND the repair center covered the shipping back to me.

- I bought the 21Ē international version because the ď22 domestic version doesnít fit wheels first in the overhead bins on our 737-700 and some of our older 767-300. (Watched as a captain I was DHing with struggle and finally had to slide it in sideways). Even though Iím on the Airbus and donít have a bag issue, we deadhead a lot at U.

- One caveat, the handle frame is on the outside of the bag which might be an issue trying to stick in the crj-200 overhead (I always used the cockpit storage when I was at Z-dub). But the outside pouch in between the handle makes a perfect spot for storing our stupid reflective vest we have to wear.
