Travel Bags Versus 10,300-Pound Elephant: FIGHT! [Travel]

via Gizmodo by Jesus Diaz on 12/26/09


It’s not a scientific test, but is there any other better way to test the strength of five bag brands than using a 10,300-pound elephant? Maybe there is, but it won’t be this fun. Surprisingly, one bag resisted:

It took 14 minutes to crack open a $545 Tumi, eight minutes to open a $218 Delsey, one minute to open a legendary $240 Samsonite, and twenty minutes to rip apart a cheap $99 American Tourister. So much for premium pricing. The only un-cracked winner: A $320 Victorinox which, coincidentally, is the one I bought a few months ago. [CBS]
