Crumpler is not too well known in the United States but it should be. The few that have heard of them know them for their messenger bags but their new line of hardside travel bags is unlike any other you’ve seen so far. The Crumpler Vis-A-Vis Trunk 68CM 4 Wheeled Luggage is a high end 26.7″ hard shell spinner upright with a glossy exterior and a compression packing system on the interior.
If you want to pack your suitcase to the brim to avoid carrying an extra bag, this piece of luggage will do the trick. You can pack lots of clothes in it because of its design. You also don’t have to worry about the zipper busting open in transit because of reinforced wrap around fabric straps.
In addition to the 68CM bag, there is also a 78CM, a 55CM cabin bag and an attache or briefcase. They are all aimed at the luxury traveler and they look expensive too.
Now let’s see what makes this piece of luggage unique.
