GT SUPREME COLLECTION
INFO Samsonite is specifically targeting business travellers with the launch of the GT Supreme Collection. A backpack and rolling tote two-piece set, both bags are made from a combination of tough nylon and soft cowhide leather. A key feature is the Radio Frequency Identification or RFID-protected pocket, which blocks malicious electronic signals from stealing personal information contained in travellers’ passports, IDs and credit cards. The backpack is designed with a tablet compartment as well as front zippered pockets. Both items are available in black or dark olive.
HELIUM AIR 2
INFO This is Delsey’s lightest-ever hard-case luggage. The four-wheeled case has been optimised for maximum internal volume, with the pull handle stored half outside the case. Heightened security comes in the form of a TSA combination lock and Zip Securi Tech – which is reportedly 41 times more resilient than a normal zip. Seven vibrant colours are available, ranging from tangerine orange to emerald green. To celebrate its 70th anniversary this year, Delsey will also roll out three additional gradated designs in purple, grey (pictured) and light blue.
BOLERO BUSINESS MULTIWHEEL
INFO Bolero has been designed “for business and touring” – with organisation being the name of the game. The small case comes with a hard polycarbonate shell, plus a spacious front pocket containing document dividers. Inside the main compartment are more pouches, including an integrated laptop and cable pocket to maximise efficiency.
ARRIVE JULIUS INTERNATIONAL EXPANDABLE CARRY-ON
INFO Tumi has relaunched its Arrive collection, featuring high-polish chrome retractable handles, a lightly padded pocket lined with a non-abrasive micro-fibre suede, and sleek magnetic zippers. At 5.8kg it is the heaviest model featured here, which may be a negative for some, but the item does boast an 11-inch (28cm) expanded depth for maximum flexibility.
INFO The brightly coloured Lucid collection from Lojel certainly stands out from the crowd, with five bold colours to choose from including “Passion Red” and “Carrera Blue”. The hard polycarbonate shell features a front pocket for a laptop, tablet or iPad. Security features include a TSA lock and tamper-proof zipper.
