Traveling Light

Attendees can now stuff that bulky pillow gift or two or three more pairs of shoes in their luggage and still navigate airports easily. New high-tech International Traveller™ luggage by Landor & Hawa makes it possible. The frameless design reduces the weight of a 26-inch case, which is typically about 18 pounds, to only nine pounds. With flight restrictions limiting luggage weight to 50 pounds, this is a huge advantage. The flexible construction using Frameless™ and Freefoam™ technologies in soft-sided, wheeled luggage allows the case to mold itself around what you're carrying. The bags are ultra-lightweight, with more interior packing space and a protective environment that cushions and absorbs impacts from any direction.
