In addition, an RFID blocking interior pocket keeps credit cards and passports hidden to protect against identity theft. Constructed with rugged, fashionably textured nylon fabric with water-, stain- and abrasion resistant DuraGuard® coating, this brief features stylish leather accents that add luxury you are sure to appreciate.

The Guide continues to wow with the Travelpro Platinum Magna 2 Spinner Tote, a carry-on piece which fits in most airplane overhead bins and is ideal for 1 – 2 day trips. This multipurpose tote is perfect for efficient travel and as a daily briefcase to roll to and from the office. 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.

Weighing less than six pounds, this spinner features the patented Contour Grip which provides more comfort and control for easy mobility through busy airports.

Travelpro Sweeps Top Two Spots in Awards Competition for Best Carry-on Luggage

December 18, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

After 3 years of rigorous testing, The Wirecutter Bestows 1st and 2nd Place Awards to Travelpro Luggage

Travelpro, the original inventor of Rollaboard® luggage and a market leader in innovative, high-quality luggage design, received an unprecedented honor from The Wirecutter, a cutting-edge source known for its rigorous testing of the ‘best gadgets and gear for people who quickly want to know what to get.’ This site for those in the know and on the go tested 31 bags over the last three years and determined that the Travelpro® Platinum® Magna™ 2 22″ Expandable Rollaboard Suiter is the best carry-on bag on the market. The Travelpro Crew™ 10 22″ Expandable Rollaboard Suiter received the 2nd place award. .

The Travelpro Platinum Magna 2 bagsAccording to The Wirecutter, “The Platinum Magna 2 22″ Expandable Rollaboard Suiter easily packs five days’ worth of clothes into the maximum allowed carry-on dimensions and offers many of the premium touches you’d expect from a $500 suitcase for about half that price. Its lifetime warranty also covers airline damage – a rarity at any cost.” Citing innovative features and great value, the website reports that for savvy and sophisticated flyers, this 22″ carry-on model offers the best balance of size, price, reliability, and durability, with high-end details.

Scott Applebee, Travelpro’s Vice President of Marketing, remarked on this extraordinary achievement by saying, “We are honored that the judges recognized two of our outstanding products, even noting that the Platinum Magna 2 is better balanced and less prone to tipping than comparable models, and has a sleeker higher-end aesthetic.” He commented that “The Wirecutter also praised our new built-in garment folder with a removable folding board which increases the bag’s overall packing flexibility.”

As The Wirecutter said about their top pick, the very similar Crew 10 22″ Rollaboard is your next best choice and both bags received excellent reviews. The Crew 10 model, which came in 2nd place, has the same high quality wheels, zippers, and built-in garment folder as the 1st place Platinum model.

The choices of best products determined by The Wirecutter involves an entire team which takes weeks or months of research and testing, including interviews and data from the best editorial and user sources around, and the help of engineers, scientists, and experts.

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.

Travelpro Receives First Place in Travel Goods Assocation Product Innovation Awards

March 1, 2013 by · 2 Comments 

We were very excited at Travelpro to receive some wonderful news at the Travel Goods Association trade show today: Our Platinum Magna 8-wheel Expandable Spinner received First Place in the TGA’s Product Innovation Awards.

The Platinum Magna Luggage collection at the 2013 Travel Goods Association show.

The Platinum Magna Luggage collection at the 2013 Travel Goods Association show.

This is the second year we have won an award from the TGA, taking third place last year for our Crew 9 21-inch Expandable Spinner, which was chosen for its two handle features, the PowerScope extension handle, and the Contour Grip.

This year our designers incorporated four new patent-pending technologies on the the Platinum Magna 8-wheel Expandable Spinner: the MagnaTrac, the 8-wheel Spinner system, the Duraframe framing system, the PowerScope extension handle and the Contour handle grip. The entire Platinum 8 collection is backed by the Travelpro “Worry-Free” lifetime warranty. The end result is that the bag is easier to move, more comfortable to grip, and we’ve eliminated the drifting effect typically seen in other spinner-wheel bags

We were very pleased to bring home this award, because we incorporated many of the features based on the consumer feedback we have received for each of our collections. It’s comments, tweets, Facebook status updates, and even blog comments that have helped us continually strive to make the perfect bag.

Travel Goods Association's Product Innovation Awards logoThis year, we took one step closer to it, and with your help, and thanks to the hard work and innovation of our design staff, we hope to do this again next year.

We at Travelpro recognize that the purchase of rolling luggage from our Platinum® 7 collection is not something you take lightly. It can be a considerable investment that you want to make sure is sound. That’s why our Platinum 7 “Worry Free” Warranty reads:

The Travelpro® Worry Free Warranty guarantees your Platinum 7 luggage is free from defects in materials and workmanship, and also covers repairs of damage caused by the mishandling of a common carrier for the life of the bag.

Imagine that, a lifetime guarantee that you won’t have to pay for damage caused by airline baggage handlers.

A manufacturer would have to be extremely confident in both the materials used in and testing performed on its Rollaboards in order to offer such a warranty. Whether it’s the Platinum 7 collection or any of our other lines, Travelpro is confident about the durability of its luggage.

We test all materials and components to the highest industry standards. Our ergonomic, telescoping handle system is tested over 15,000 open/close cycles to ensure durability and stability. Travelpro’s removable, sealed, ball-bearing, in-line wheels are tested for 30 miles to ensure rolling smoothness year after year.

All Platinum 7 bags are constructed with 2000 Denier Ballistic nylon fabric that features a stain and abrasion resistant DuraGuard™ coating that is thoroughly tested for water repellency, color fading and seam strength. The Platinum 7 polypropylene honeycomb framing system provides exceptional durability while reducing the overall weight of the bag.

All luggage in the Platinum 7 collection feature self-repairing nylon coil zipper systems that ensure flawless operation and provide consistent closures. The main zipper undergoes a wear resistance test that includes 7,500 open/close cycles. The luggage also includes rubber skid guards, molded wheel housings and corner guards to protect against damage.

In short, Travelpro’s design team focuses on product durability all through the development and testing process. We recognize that any manufacturer can offer a bag that doesn’t weigh much. The challenge is to provide a lightweight bag that stands up to the rigors that a bag goes through in its lifecycle.

Have we succeeded? Could we offer a lifetime warranty on our products if they weren’t extremely durable?
