Going off to College, need help finding the right Luggage

Hey guys, I'm in need of some help here. I'm going to be leaving for college soon and I don't have a big enough suitcase to fit all the clothes that I will need. I don't want to haul around 4 different bags. Anyone of you guys know where I can get a nice large suitcase or roller duffel bag? I have those space bags that will help me pack a junk load of clothes into a small space but like I said, not a big enough bag to fit the space bags. The space bags are 21.5"x33.5". So Im looking for a suitcase or duffle bag that is 33 inches at most in length but it doesnt need to be exactly 21.5 inches wide. It can be like 15"-20" in width since I can fold the bags to fit the width. I've been searching online(mostly online versions of Wal-mart and Target) but most of the bags that sound like the right size are not available in-store(i need the bag by Sunday since I leave Monday morning.) So I basically need to know what stores that I can just drive to have a bag that is big enough.

Can anyone help me out here? Thanks in Advanced.

Ps. if anyone cares what college I'm going to, I'm going to Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.

Wow congrats, you lucky bugger.

Going to College (university) in Australia usually means a 10 min drive.

in melbourne all the big universities are within driving distance. In fact the University I went to, was walking distance from home...

You Yanks get to move state etc... no wonder you all go mental your first year away from parents... well according to hollywood movies I watch anyways hehehehehehehe....


Good luck

Well, to be honest, I'm very excited to get away from my parents. It'll feel good to get away from all the nagging and crying.

Most kids will make the mistake of over packing...took me a few years to get out of the habit.

Re: Going off to College, need help finding the right Luggage

You have to consider three things when moving.
1.-How much space are you going to have in your room.
2.-How often are you going to be traveling(packing-unpacking)
3.-Portability.

I worked as a traveling Software Analyst an I made 300 miles a week. Accumulated 45,0000 miles in 6 months and I can tell you, right now I can live off my luggage.

1. I really have no idea how much space is in my dorm since every room in the Residence halls vary in size and design. So It's kind of hard to know.

2. Im gonna go to boston, walk to my dorm, unpack and thats it.

So can you give me a good idea for what kind of bag i should look for? Using the measurements that I gave above? And for under a 100$?
