Briggs & Riley launches new hardsided Sympatico Collection

The iconic American travelware brand Briggs & Riley has announced the launch of its new Sympatico Collection, a re-imagining of the brand’s best-selling hardsided collection, featuring carry-on and checked sized luggage pieces available in Black, Navy and a brand new Olive colourway. 

The refreshed Sympatico Collection features two sizes of carry-on luggage (Essential & Global – both £569) as well as Medium (£669) and Large (£699) checked luggage, and includes the following innovations: 

  • The world’s only one-touch CX™ expansion, an upgraded system from the original Sympatico collection. With the simple press of a button, all luggage in the collection can expand to increase packing capacity by up to 25%, and then can be easily compressed down to their original size.
  • Proprietary shock absorbing wheels for 360° maneuverability and smooth, quiet gliding.
  • Optimal capacity with the brand’s patented telescoping Outsider® handle to provide a flat packing surface inside to minimise wrinkles. The handle is made from aircraft-grade aluminum and engineered with outstanding impact resistant design.
  • Premium identification through elegant personalisation and iconic leather detailing, ensuring luggage carousel mix ups are a thing of the past.
  • All bags are constructed from recycled polycarbonate
  • Built in TSA-friendly lock secures contents, letting agents safely access the bag. 
  • Adjustable garment compression panels with speed buckles keep clothing flat, minimising wrinkling, and prevent contents from shifting in transit
  • Backed by Briggs & Riley’s unconditional “Simple As That” lifetime guarantee
  • A Power Pocket™ on the back of the carry-on sized bags allows for a pass-through USB cord for easy, on-the-go charging.

Briggs & Riley is dedicated to delivering remarkable travelware with extraordinary performance and enduring quality. The brand is the only luggage company to offer an unconditional lifetime guarantee, which repairs products free of charge with no proof of purchase needed and no questions asked. 

Briggs & Riley is also committed to integrating sustainability into every step of the design, manufacturing, marketing, and home office processes, increasingly embracing practices that are designed to reduce the environmental impact of each product made and action taken.

Briggs & Riley’s Sympatico Collection is available to purchase from £569 for the carry-on size, online at or in-store at John Lewis, Harrods or Selfridges.
