Something for air travel - pencils ready . . .
#1
So far I have not used this, but . . .
I usually only take carry on bags now, however on my recent return to the far east, I found due to a request from a fellow limey in Pattaya for 250 Tea bags, I was short of space in my day pack carry on.
Not wanting to pay some expensive price for a lewis luton suitcase, I looked around for an alternative.
The problem with suitcases now is that the price is enhanced for status.
What is Louly Vooton suitcases really? they are just vinyl printed with a certain pattern.
They are certainly not worth $3100 for a pull along bag!
However walk into a Hilton pulling one of these and the staff will be drooling over you thinking that as you own that suitcase, you tip BIG.
My alternative - a tool box. No I did not buy one for this trip, because I filled my carry on bag - just.
When you have stopped laughing I will explain why a tool box is a good alternative.
They are tough, lockable, sometimes pull-alongs, and if you walk into the Hilton with one of these, the staff will just think you are some specialist technician for NASA.

$40 will buy you a good one.

However, if they ever become common as hold baggage on aircraft, it would not be long before certain people would scoff at a Dewalt, because they have a Stanley.

I did employ a small metal paper file box to transport liquids, and peanut butter, and things not allowed in the cabin.
The airline lost it. 
They delivered it to my hotel the next day.
Ah now there is something for those who might be embarrassed carrying a tool box.
Check in a lockable file box, and you appear to be a hot shot international business man.  Cool
