most people have a black suitcase. that is about the only color they used to make i think. nice but it can make it hard to find yours at baggage claim, unless you have a bright object tied to it. while on a trip last year, i saw someone elses suitcase and thought 'i can do that so easy' they had painted a design on it (flowers i think) so with two trips of my own pending this year i decided it was time to actually do it.
made it much easier to see my suitcase. got a bit scratched up but what can you expect when they just throw them all over the place. (oh and my trips were lots of fun)
