I now only purchase luggage that is lightweight.  With airline weight limits in place and fully enforced, we all need to to be concerned about luggage weight.  However, we all also want to make sure that our luggage arrives undamaged to our staterooms.  Suitcases are not treated gently by either airline personnel, terminal baggage handlers or for that matter even tax or shuttle drivers.  What do you use now, softsided or hardsided luggage?
