A Travelpro Owner Tells Us About a Narrow Escape

September 9, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

We recently received this note from David Ducharme, an adventure traveler and Travelpro user. While we’ve always touted the durability and ruggedness of the Travelpro backpacks, we never envisioned this.

David Ducharme photoDavid sent us this letter telling us about a motorcycle accident he was involved in this past March.

On March 14th, I was traveling by motorcycle in Nepal, from Kathmandu to Jiri.

While riding through the Himalayas on very narrow, sandy, gravel covered roads carved onto the sides of mountains, I experienced quite a close call. Riding my Royal Enfield 500 Bullet, a taxi was attempting to pass me to my right.

Unknown to me or the taxi driver, around the blind corner was a large Tata construction truck approaching at high speed. As I drove around the corner, the truck appeared.

To my immediate right side, the taxi had two choices, drive off the cliff or swerve left and hit me. He chose to hit me. As one would expect, my Bullet and I went down hard.

My bike sustained some damage, bent engine guard, foot pegs torn off, shifter stripped… (happy to send you the picture), my left side hit the ground pretty hard. Two broken ribs and a likely concussion, I was very lucky.

One of the things that saved me was my Kuhl jacket and my Travelpro backpack. I was bruised, battered, and broken under that jacket, but the jacket didn’t rip, and I didn’t tear any of my skin off.

I am convinced that my Kuhl jacket and my Travelpro back pack saved my skin, literally. So, thank you for producing quality, durable luggage, I will remain a loyal Travelpro customer.

Sincerely, David Ducharme

Luggage Testing Facility Ensures Highest Quality for Travelpro and Atlantic Brands

August 19, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

As the original inventor of Rollaboard luggage and a market leader in innovative luggage design, Travelpro has continued to develop their state-of-the-art testing facility at their Boca Raton, Florida, headquarters to ensure the highest quality luggage for flight crews and frequent travelers.

Travelpro’s in-house testing team conducts a full range of rigorous qualification protocols across all their luggage brands. It is designed to support all the performance testing needs of their Product Design and Development process by replicating real-world usage conditions.

Platiinum Magna 2 bags“Quality and innovation are the cornerstones of the Travelpro brand and our testing facility ensures our continued commitment to providing the finest, most durable luggage worldwide,” said Scott Applebee, Vice President of Marketing for the Travelpro family of brands. “When we offer a comprehensive warranty on our bags, it means we’ve thoroughly tested each product to our demanding testing standards. If a bag fails even a single test, it is sent back to the factory for improvements and then tested again, until all tests are passed.”

Travelpro has continued to grow its reputation of innovation, style and durability by ensuring that its products meet or exceed testing standards throughout the product life cycle. This commitment to quality through product testing has spanned close to three decades, since the days when Northwest Airlines pilot, Robert Plath, invented the original Rollaboard luggage in 1987 and founded Travelpro.

Numerous professionally designed industry leading tests are applied to Travelpro and Atlantic branded products to guarantee state-of-the-art workmanship and quality of materials. Extension Handle Testing subjects the retractable handles to 10,000 up and down movements to verify its reliability during repeated use. The Zipper Test activates outer and interior zippers thousands of times to replicate ‘real-world’ usage over the life of the bag. The Wheel Tester thoroughly tests luggage wheels to provide a smooth and effortless roll with long-term reliability. Fabrics are tested for seam strength, resistance to wear and tear, color consistency under different lighting conditions and color stability under wet and dry conditions.

Every test given is monitored and recorded by quality verification testers. Moreover, the process doesn’t stop there. Throughout the life of a product line, Travelpro will randomly select bags for testing to ensure they continue to maintain the same level of quality over time and usage. Thanks to this focus on quality through constant testing, Travelpro luggage lasts longer, maintaining customer loyalty.
