LUGGAGE - Q&A - all you could ask and then some Part THREE

LUGGAGE - Part 3

This should answer any and all questions as the dates of the first questions go back a few years.

MAKE Sure you check the date for relevance and also don’t reply to a dead thread.

I put this together in order to make the questions people have easier to answer and reduce the repetitiveness of questions.

Taken from General Discussion threads, ALL 400+ pages (if you print it out, it’s 24-8.5”X11” pages )

Part 1

Someone asking questions like,
“What do you think of…?”
“Which do you prefer, X or Z?”

Part 2

Brand comparisons

Questions are to the nature of; “What to do…?“How do I…?”“Where do I get…?
“How can I…?ETC…

Part 3

DIY; it’s just that

FYI; so you can find/fix/learn

Testimonials; so you can make a decision on what other people have found through experience
