Boats, Trains, and Automobiles: Luggage Options When You DON’T Fly

December 8, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Travel seems to revolve around airplanes these days, but there are other ways to travel the country. If you don’t have to conform to airline guidelines and your plans take you away from home for more than a week, you may need to take more with you. Investing in larger luggage allows you to get your stuff from here to there without putting yourself or your clothing through contortions to do so.

We offer many options for those who choose other means of transportation for their getaways. While not everyone needs the space afforded by larger luggage, it can be a space saving option to consider, especially for families traveling by car.

30 inch Tpro Bold Drop Bottom Rolling Duffel

30 inch Tpro Bold Drop Bottom Rolling Duffel

Our 26″ and 30″ rolling duffel bags can accommodate the needs several travelers, particularly several children or the clothing for an adult and a child, reducing the number of bags in the trunk or on the train or boat. Many of these duffels are drop-bottom, meaning that there is a separate lower compartment for storing shoes, cables and other odd-sized items. If you want one large compartment, you can unzip the divider panel for one large packing space. They are an excellent value for the price.

Travelpro has developed a specific bag for the non-airplane traveler: the 33″ Expandable Spinner model. Available only through certain retailers, this case is our largest offering, designed specifically for the traveler whose needs exceed the 28″ and 29″ cases. The bag operates with a spinner wheel system, allowing it to be pushed or pulled, and it is surprisingly lightweight for its size.

Or if you’re like most dads, you may want a “hotel bag” — the bag that gets taken into the hotel so you don’t have to unpack everything — on long car trips. A smaller duffel or backpack could serve that purpose.

What kinds of bags do you take when you’re not traveling by plane? Do you have a favorite or a go-to bag? Share your stories with us in the comment section below, or on our Facebook page.

Newest Innovations In Travelpro Luggage

June 10, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

We don’t often talk about our luggage on our blog, but we’ve come up with some innovations that we think will improve travelers’ experience. The changes to our products were far from cosmetic, and designed to solve a common issue with modern luggage: stability.

When using four- or eight-wheel spinner luggage, the luggage has a tendency to swerve to the left or right. This puts a strain on the traveler’s wrist and shoulder as he or she compensates to keep the luggage moving in a straight line. This isn’t unlike a car whose wheels are out of alignment. In order to keep the vehicle in a straight path, the driver must constantly correct the direction.

Travelpro 21 inch Blue Marquis Spinner

Travelpro 21 inch Blue Marquis Spinner

We came up with a solution to the drifting issue by designing our patent-pending MagnaTrac Spinner wheels which incorporate magnetic wheel technology. Made specifically for spinner luggage, we created a system where the wheels will always line up and go straight, but can still be turned easily. The result is less strain on your body, which can mean a more enjoyable (or less tiring) trip.

We also introduced two other patented features, the Contour Grip and the PowerScope handle. Contour Grip is a handle specifically designed for use with Spinner wheels. The handle is made from two cushioned halves that fit directly into the palm of your hand, cushioning it while you push your bag through the airport. This improved handle gives you more comfort and control of your luggage, regardless of whether you push or pull.

The Powerscope Handle is made to resist the pressure points that form when pushing luggage and reduce the wobble in the handle. This gives you more control over the bag, and helps prevent breakage.

All three TravelPro designs won awards at the Travel Goods Association Product Innovation Awards in 2012 and 2013, including 1st place for the MagnaTrac™ Spinner innovation. These designs will be applied to multiple Travelpro product lines so the improvements can fit within most travelers’ budgets.

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.

Can Today’s Lightweight Luggage Take the Stress of Travel?

April 5, 2012 by · 1 Comment 

A lot of people ask how today’s luggage manages to be so lightweight. And if it’s so light, they ask, will it hold up to the stresses and strains of regular travel?

The answer is most likely yes.

In the “old days,” weight and strength were directly proportional. If you wanted the most durable bag, you needed to use the heaviest materials. Today, that’s not the case. Fabrics have evolved to the point where a light material can also be very strong.

Luggage manufacturers have established an appropriate trade-off between weight and durability. At TravelPro, we look at everything that could weigh down a bag, from the outer material to everything that goes inside.

Our designers use specific guidelines as they craft our luggage. The frames are made from a flexible, durable honeycomb — which also happens to be quite light — then designers go from there as they choose handles, wheels, pockets and even accessories that are included inside the bag.

Fabric is one of the biggest considerations, and it’s usually a choice between polyester and nylon. Today, both are great, durable choices for everyday luggage. Polyester was once considered a low-end material, but manufacturers have made huge strides in strengthening the fabric and making it more aesthetically appealing, too.

All of these things become a factor when deciding what goes into the bag and how much it will weigh — we analyze every component of every bag we make to ensure that it doesn’t exceed our specifications, so you can have the comfort in travel and peace of mind that your belongings will be safe and secure inside your luggage.
