I have 2 of the carry on bags from Shooting Systems made from ballistic nylon. They really hold up but hardly look vintage. ( I would like to get their Garment Bag sometime.) If you have one of those ubiquitous black bags, you can make it stand out with your own customizing mark. There are various colored cloth tapes that are similar to duct tape, if you wrap a little around one of the handles and have a colorful luggage tag it makes it stand out in the airport carosel.
