Online PR News – 26-June-2010 – – (June 14, 2010) Boca Raton, FL –Travelpro, the inventor of Rollaboard® luggage and a leader in innovative, high quality luggage design introduces the Crew™ 8 collection, its most versatile and efficient collection to date. From its design origin with airline pilots and flight crews, this stylish 11-piece collection combines lightweight durable luggage with checkpoint friendly business cases all in one matching collection. It was designed specifically for the frequent business and leisure traveller with performance features that work smartly together to make every aspect of the trip easier.
The Crew 8 collection sets a new standard of excellence for the luggage industry. Its innovative performance and utility features ease the frustrations of traveling, from packing and unpacking to check-in and airport security. “The Crew 8 collection has some very unique models, including a wide-body carry-on, an international size carry-on with a built-in business organizer and computer sleeve and a checkpoint friendly business case and backpack, all designed to meet the needs of frequent travellers”, said Scott Applebee Vice President of Marketing for Travelpro.
The Crew 8 collection has unique features for every traveller’s need, including totes, carry-on and check-through luggage, a carry-on garment bag, and a check-point friendly computer briefcase and backpack. Originally designed to meet the heavy travel demands of professional flight crews, the Crew 8 collection is built to last. The wheels on each piece of the collection are tested for over 30 miles and the handle system is tested over 15,000 cycles for optimal performance. Each product is made with micro-ballistic nylon fabric with DuraGuard™ fabric protection, ergonomic zipper pulls and removable, sealed, waterproof ball-bearing wheels to ensure the smoothest of rolls and long-lasting durability.
In addition to the myriad of features that provide strength and durability, the Crew 8 Collection was designed for convenience and efficiency. Each Rollaboard model contains easily accessible, large front pockets for last-minute items, a number of internal pockets for organization, and a hidden security pocket for the storage of valuables. Its new extension handle system accommodates users of different heights stopping at 38” and 43”, and is strong enough to support a tote or case.

The four-point stability system prevents tipping when luggage is expanded. Other features include a hidden ID holder which holds a standard size business card, 2 ½” expansion capability for additional packing room, and a detachable Add-A-Bag strap for hands-free carrying of extra bags, which allows totes, cases and backpacks to be carried on the front of the bag for easy on the go traveling.
