What kind of bags do you travel with?

My suitcase is a Samsonite Blue Jays customized suitcase that I received at Blue jays training camp (Honda Canada has an ongoing partnership with the Toronto’s Major League Baseball team). If I’m not checking bags I take my Tumi Hybrid roll-on and Tumi briefcase (1).
