luggage recommendation?

I'm needing new light-weight luggage, for both general travel and dive gear, and thought that this Bonaire forum would be a good place to find out what other people use.

My husband and I used to put our dive gear in a rolling dive duffel bag, but found it was too inconvenient to roll with a regular suitcase. And we were concerned that it screamed out "dive gear - steal me!" in dubious airports across the globe.

So we switched to putting dive gear in a regular suitcase, and thought that worked well (with a very collapsible regular nylon duffel bag to take dive gear on day dive boats).

We will be flying inter-island on Insel, which does allow extra weight (10 kg) for dive gear, but it has to be in a separate bag (no specified dimensions).

I'd appreciate hearing about experiences and recommendations about luggage and what's lightweight and functional. We try to avoid checking bags whenever possible, but we have to for a 3 week dive vacation, or spend $$, far more than we'd want to, for rental gear.
