Business Travelers Need Smaller Carry-On Luggage on Regional Jets

August 10, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Not all business travelers jet off to major cities or other countries. Many business travelers have clients in smaller cities, and that means that if you travel by air, it’ll most likely be via a regional jet.

There’s nothing wrong with regional jets, except when it comes to overhead and under seat storage space for carry-on luggage. You can determine if your plane will be a regional jet simply by entering your flight number on SeatGuru. The overhead bin size will be specified in the data about the plane. Most will accommodate bags up to 18″x14″x7″.

If you normally fly via these types of aircraft, your more traditional carry-on luggage gets gate-checked for plane side retrieval. While setup doesn’t require you to trek to the baggage claim, you may end up waiting several minutes for your luggage to re-emerge. Nothing wrong with that, unless you need to make a tight connection. In that case, you might consider investigating smaller carry-on luggage instead.

Travelpro has a wide variety of bags that will increase your chances of avoiding gate check and still provide you with many options for traveling with your business and personal essentials.

Let’s start with the Crew™ 11 Rolling Tote. Don’t be deceived by its size: this bag has been designed to do double duty and features a built-in business organizer with pockets for cables and smartphones, separate padded tablet and laptop sleeves, as well as a generous compartment for a change of clothes.

Tpro Bold 2 Backpacks are ideal for business travelers on regional jets.

The Crew™ 11 Spinner Tote has the same features as the aforementioned model, but steps things up a notch with Travelpro’s patented 360-degree MagnaTrac® self-aligning wheels. The Platinum® Magna™ 2 Spinner Tote is crafted with premium fabrics, leather accents, and high-performance MagnaTrac® self-aligning wheels, and has a dedicated business organizer compartment as well as a Worry Free Warranty backing.

The Platinum® Magna™ 2 Backpack is checkpoint friendly, allowing you to pass through security without removing your laptop. The Crew™ Executive Choice™ 2 Wheeled Brief sports a full business organizer, complete with an external USB port with dedicated Power Bank storage pocket for keeping your electronics charged on the go (Power Bank not included). Its clothing compartment is more than adequate for one to two days change of clothes and has hold down straps to keep contents secure.

The T-pro® Bold™ 2.0 Backpack streamlines your travel experience without compromising on features. Dedicated pockets organize your business essentials, and a generous interior cavity provides space for the efficient packer to accommodate not only a laptop, but a set of clothes and toiletries.

Finally, if you’re looking for a non-rolling, soft tote style answer to overhead bin limitations, the MaxLite® 4 Soft Tote weighs in at just under 2 pounds, but will accommodate a change of clothes and select business essentials. It also fits under the seat in front of you, leaving the overhead bin available for others. (Or in the overhead bin, leaving you a little more foot room.)

How do you manage your carry-on luggage when you’re flying on regional jets? Do you have a favorite bag or even a technique to get your bag on board? Share your thoughts in the comments below, on our Facebook page, or in our Twitter stream.

The padded corduroy laptop and tablet sleeves fit most 15.6″ laptops and standard size tablets, while the built-in organizer holds keys, pens, business cards and other business essentials. An RFID blocking interior pocket keeps credit cards and passports hidden to protect against loss and identity theft and an extra front pocket allows for quick access to small items. The dual wheel Spinner System features patented MagnaTrac™ magnetic wheels that instantly align to always roll straight.

Lighter and stronger than ever, the Travelpro Maxlite 4 21″ Expandable Spinner allows you to travel with more comfort and convenience than you could ever imagine. Weighing less than six pounds, this spinner features the patented Contour Grip which provides more comfort and control for easy mobility through busy airports.

Business or Leisure Travel: Can One Piece of Luggage Do Both?

December 10, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

If you travel regularly for business, you probably have your routine down to a science. You certainly don’t check your luggage; you can’t afford to wait at the carousel or risk losing your bag due to an airline foul-up. But what if you don’t travel very often, and want to invest in a bag that can be used for both business and leisure travel?

We know all travelers want durability, but those who travel regularly for business need something that will withstand rigorous use. Worse than losing your luggage is using alternate luggage because your bag has to go in for repair of a damaged wheel, a broken telescoping handle, or a malfunctioning zipper.

Platinum Magna 2 Luggage Collection

Platinum Magna 2 Luggage Collection

Our Platinum Magna 2 and Crew series bags are backed by a lifetime warranty and come in models ranging from backpacks, computer briefs, totes, garment bags, Rollaboards and Spinners in a variety of sizes. The Platinum Magna 2 collection warranty also covers damage caused by airline baggage handlers. Hybrids are also available in the Platinum Magna 2 series such as a business organizer with a laptop or tablet sleeve in the front pocket of a Carry-on Spinner.. It eliminates the need for another carry-on to manage as you maneuver through airports and hotels.

While these same bags will accommodate an efficient leisure traveler, our lighter weight Maxlite Collection, which includes soft and hardside versions, has spinners and rollaboards in a variety of sizes for leisure and business travel. These are tested to the same performance standards as our Platinum and Crew series for frequent business travelers.

For the leisure traveler looking for luggage that can go anywhere adventure takes them, the T-Pro Bold 2.0 series offers a line of nine pieces, ranging from a backpack to drop-bottom rolling duffels to spinners, each with special features for the leisure traveler’s specific needs.

What will work best for leisure depends on what type of travel you’ll be doing. If you need to conform to the ever-increasing airline restrictions or you travel mainly by car, we have a bag that will meet your demands. However, the more casual adventure look of T-Pro Bold 2.0 may not be suited to the button-down business image you’re trying to portray on your next business trip.

What do you think? Do you prefer a one-bag-fits-all approach, such as a Rollaboard and backpack, for all kinds of travel? Or do you prefer the right-bag-for-the-right-job approach, and carry specific bags on specific trips? Leave us a comment below or on our Facebook page.

Travel Trends for 2012 and Beyond: Adventure and Mission Travel

April 10, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Business travel will always be business travel; families will never stop going to Disneyland and Disney World; exotic beach locales will continue to be popular among those looking to get away.

But we’re seeing a surge of popularity among a different kind of travel, and we owe that surge to the burgeoning Generation Yers who’s graduating from college, entering the workforce and starting to spend their discretionary income on travel.

These are people who have gone through their education expecting to find jobs after graduation that will help them make the world a better place. They want all aspects of their lives to be more meaningful than those of generations before them, and that includes the trips they take in their spare time. They don’t just want fun trips. They want their vacations to mean something to them, and even to the world, or their corner of it.

Adventure Travel

If our 20-somethings have taken a job where they’re commuting by car or train to work every day, working in a corporate setting, dealing with the bureaucracy that their parents before them did, grinding it out…when they get to vacation, they’re really looking for an experience.

So they may pack up and head for somewhere exotic, but not in the way traditional travelers do. They’re looking for active experiences — from hiking and biking to riding in helicopters and ziplining — that will help them see the world in a new ways that literally take their breath away. It could be a trip down the Amazon, taking a motorcycle trip through Australia, or hiking in South Africa.

Mission Travel

This generation is one that’s very affected by the state of the world around them. Living in America, it can be difficult to feel like it’s possible to make a difference in the day-to-day lives of those suffering in places beyond our borders.

On vacation, the last thing these travelers want is to feel like they’re on a guilt trip, escaping to the lap of luxury while people and natural life around the world suffer. So other travelers (Generation Y and beyond) may choose to pursue mission trips, using their time away from work to help those who are less fortunate, to build something that will help others. They may be building houses in Mexico, caring for orphans in Haiti, or helping NGOs in Africa provide healthcare. But they’re off doing something to help people live better lives.

Chances are, these travelers are packing lighter, but they expect to come home with so much more under their belts than a few souvenirs.
