I just kind of sounds wrong :D The issue in question here is that you are stressing that it isn't MY suitcase. In this case, since you are stress the ownership of the suitcase (or lack thereof), it can't really be dropped.

Adding to this;

Benim can only be omitted in a context like:

"Bu, bavulum değil; çantam." (This is not my luggage, it's my bag.)
