Do you normally fly First/Business Class or in some preferred seating group? or are you a typical buy the cheapest coach ticket you can find?
If you're in the latter group, odds are you'll be boarding the plane last and 75% of the time there's no more room in the overhead and you'll have to gate check your $300 bag, where some monkey is going to be drop kicking it into the plane.
Checked luggage turns to shit quick and for that reason alone I don't shell out big bucks on luggage. My "Carry-On" is a Samsonite I picked up at Marshalls for like $80. If you're a bargain shopper there's quality stuff out there for not a lot of coin.
