Over 14,000 Premier Traveler subscribers were invited to vote for the Best of 2013 Awards in a survey posted on premiertravelusa.com from June 1st through September 20th, 2013. The survey consisted of open-ended questions only, with no company names given or choices provided. As a result, the luggage Premier Traveler readers favored most was Travelpro, the luggage choice of flight crews and frequent travelers and its innovative Platinum Magna collection.

“We want to thank Premier Traveler subscribers, our customers, retail partners and the media for all their complementary comments on our products,” said Scott Applebee, Travelpro’s Vice President of Marketing, after receiving the award from Premier Traveler readers. “By listening to customer feedback via social media, product reviews and observational research, we were able to identify the implicit needs of the customer that led to the development of the innovative Platinum Magna magnetic 8-wheel spinner system, which eliminates the drifting and pulling effect that is typically seen in other 4- and 8-wheel Spinner luggage.”

The Platinum Magna Collection introduces four revolutionary patent-pending features, including the MagnaTrac magnetic 8-wheel spinner system, with user removable and replaceable Spinner wheels, as well as the Duraframe framing system, the PowerScope extension handle and the Contour handle grip. The end result of these features is the luggage is easier to move, more durable, lighter weight and more comfortable to grip. The entire groundbreaking Platinum Magna collection is backed by the Travelpro “Worry-Free” lifetime warranty.

Are Backpacks Becoming More Appropriate for the Workplace?

September 24, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

If you walk down the street in any major city as the workday is ending, you’ll notice one major trend: backpacks and messenger bags have become a popular replacement for the briefcase. What started as a Gen Y trend has been adopted by professionals of all ages. If you’re still holding onto your hard briefcase (literally), here are four reasons why it’s time to let go and pick up a backpack or messenger bag instead.

1. Better for city commuters

Crew 9 Backpack is great for a college student or new professional.Backpacks, messenger bags and business briefs are a better option for those who get to work by train, bus, or on foot. When you don’t have a car to tote things around in, and you need to fit a number of items into your bag, a hard briefcase can’t hold a laptop, lunch, gym clothes, etc. as easily as a backpack or messenger bag can.

2. Less cumbersome

Let’s face it, a boxy briefcase isn’t the easiest thing to carry. They’re clunky, cumbersome and make it that much more difficult to juggle your smartphone, coffee and morning paper. A backpack or messenger bag can free your hands to send out emails, juggle whatever your boss throws at you, or earn brownie points by holding the door open for colleagues.

3. More fashionable

Overall, workplace attire has become more casual in the last decade (good riddance to the power suit!). Unless you’re in a position that requires more formal attire (lawyer, CEO, etc.) you’ve probably noticed that the vast majority of your colleagues have stopped carrying briefcases in favor of backpacks and messenger bags. As more and more Gen Y employees enter the workforce, this trend will continue to grow.

4. More comfortable

Many people find backpacks to be a more comfortable alternative to briefcases and laptop bags due to the fact that weight is spread over the entire back as opposed to one side of the body. For those who frequently suffer from shoulder pain or experience hand discomfort when carrying a briefcase, a backpack may be a better option.

Many professionals are hesitant to switch over from a briefcase or laptop bag because they fear they’ll look too unprofessional or juvenile carrying one. The truth is, professionals of all levels can pull off a backpack or messenger bag – it’s all about selecting the right style and design.

While younger professionals or those who work in an extremely casual environment can pull off most styles, many professionals should opt for a more structured, well-made design, such as TravelPro’s Business Backpack or Messenger Brief.

Travel Gear to Get Your College Student

August 20, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

If your son or daughter is heading off/back to college this fall, you’ve likely spent the last few months in full-on preparation mode stocking up on everything from dorm décor to economy-size packages of Ramen noodles.

Before you send your college-bound kid packing, make sure they have a sturdy bag to last throughout their college years… unless you’re OK with the whole “garbage bag as luggage” deal. They’ll need something they can haul around for a trip home, for travel overseas, Spring Break, or even a weekend away.

Assuming you’re not, here are four great travel gear options for your college student:

Messenger bag

Crew 9 Backpack is great for a college student or new professional.Great for: All years
Messenger bags are a hot item right now. Not only are they trendy, but they’re also quite versatile in both form and function. A good messenger bag can do the job of a backpack and laptop bag — and because they’re also popular for young professionals, this style of bag can be used well past your student’s college years.

Backpack

Great for: All years
Backpacks will never go out of style, but a cheap backpack can (and will) go out of commission. Instead of buying a new backpack for your college student every year, invest in a well-made one that will hold up from the first day of college through graduation day. Many well-made backpacks have some pretty neat features, such as iPod earphone ports and padded compartments to keep laptops or tablets safe. Plus we’re seeing these enter the workforce as more college grads continue to carry them, so we think backpacks may be the new business luggage du jour one day.

20″ Rollaboard

26 inch Tpro Bold Rolling DuffelGreat for: Seniors
Your son or daughter’s senior year in college will quite possibly be one of the busiest years of their life. On top of endless schoolwork, many students spend the last few months of their college career traveling to job interviews in other cities. A nice rolling bag will come in handy for them as they transition from student to young professional. The Travelpro 20″ Rollaboard features a padded pocket for a laptop or tablet and an efficient business organizer. A roomy compartment for clothing and personal belongings make this a great option for both trips to job interviews as well as long-awaited weekend trips home.

30″ Rolling Duffel

Great for: Freshmen
As we all know, dorm rooms are small and storage space is limited, so your new student will need luggage that can play double-duty. Rolling duffel bags are a great option for this reason. These bags are versatile and transition easily from a casual duffel bag for weekend trips home or camping excursions, to sturdy rolling luggage for spring break vacations. A sturdy rolling duffel bag is an essential item that your college freshman will be able to use all the way through their senior year.

While these bags are great options for college-bound kids, they work well for travelers of all ages. After all, why should your kids have all the fun?! Now that your son or daughter is packing up and leaving, you may want to do some traveling of your own…
