Battlefoam vs Baggage Handlers. This must be the ultimate contest, right? Honestly, I suspect that the odds are weighed on the side of the baggage gorillas.
I'm booking my flights for GenCon, and in the midst of lamenting the extra $55 tacked on to the ticket price for my two Battlefoam bags, I paused to consider what kind of treatment that money is going to buy me. Let's rate my confidence as 'low'.
Obviously, plenty of people have had to deal with this kind of thing, so I put it to the veterans of convention travel: How bad is it, really? What can be done to mitigate the damage?
