|Road Warrior M Series|
USA Today posted a short article about some exciting, new luggage shown at the 2012 Travel Goods Show in Las Vegas. Collapsible and expandable luggage brought the greatest interest and also won awards at the show.
Here are the winners:
- First Place- Road Warrior M Series Luggage: with the pull of a ripcord, these bags collapse to half their depth for easy storage. They come in six sizes
- Second Place (Tie)- Domestic Carry-On Expandable Upright by Briggs & Riley and Compressor by Samsonite : both have zipperless systems that expand & contract the case for more efficient packing
- Third Place- Travelpro Crew 9: expandable spinner, liked for it’s sturdy handle & grip, specially designed 4-wheel luggage
The luggage listed above range in price from $199-$600
I usually travel with a backpack to keep my hands free but these new wheelie bags definitely interest me. I am actually in the market for a new carry-on wheelie. I recently bought a new bag that I need to return due to it being way too small.
A big issue for me (and I am sure many others) when it comes to luggage is storage. These new pieces definitely help with that issue due to how they collapse.
I am most interested in the Road Warrior M Series. I love how the bag collapses to half it’s size. While this feature looks amazing, I am curious to know how the quality of the bag itself is. Not much is know about the company and this is a brand new product.
