Briggs and Riley, known for their innovative high-end luggage, recently released three new collections available online to fit the needs of their jet-setter clients. TORQ, the company’s first hard-side line, has a sleek aesthetic and unique shape designed to provide maximum space. Pricing starts at $479 for carry-ons, $529 for medium spinners and up to $569 for large spinners.


The TORQ line is made for contemporary travelers who “aren’t willing to trade function for style,” according to the brand. The futuristic design and smart features make the bags from this collection a must-have for frequent flyers.


TORQ is the only hard-side collection to be protected by an unconditional lifetime warranty and the collection has extra special features to make for happy traveling. With indestructibility and a manageable weight in mind, the TORQ cases are made of Makrolon, a high-performance, automotive-grade polycarbonate composite material. The cases also boast a middle layer that prevents the hard shell from cracking.


It doesn’t stop there, though, as each of the carry-on models include a hardside front pocket (which is an industry first) that is lockable. Plus, the spinners all integrate an 80/20 design in its semi-lid, as opposed to the usual 50/50, which provides more flexibility and easier packing.


Coming in three sizes and three different color options, the TORQ collection from Briggs & Riley Travelware offers a new spin on hard-side luggage.
