Travel luggage for Brompton

A friend asked me for advice on what luggage to get to travel with a Brompton. My answer was either a cardboard box, stuff all ur clothes inside. Or get the Lojel.

And I realized I did not post a photo of it before. So here's the communal consolidation with the help of Lovecyclingsg folks.
It seems like a tossup between Lojel and Vincita. Difference is Lojel is a hardcase which weights more but provides more protection. While Vincita is a soft padded case which is lighter but perhaps less protected(but I think is really ok)
Diane very nice review of the Vincita soft case here

  1. Tai Woon, thats my photo of my brompton in the Lojel case. Having used it, I can tell you and your readers that its a really tight fit, and it does not afford enough protection for the bike. I just saw a hard case being sold in Flyball.com in Hong Kong. About S$300++. A much better case... :)

  2. Has anyone tried the Polaris B-Pod? It was designed in conjunction with Brompton. It is made of EVA so is light-weight and offers loads of protection. they can be found here: http://shop.polaris-bikewear.co.uk/Eva-Folding-Bike-Pod-p/pol01-4840.htm
