The survey, which tapped more than 100,000 of TripAdvisor's most passionate travelers, asked people to not only to identify the general categories of luggage they felt were essential to their trips—but also to dive deep into the specific features of each piece that they considered most valuable. Using the resulting data, eBags and TripAdvisor arrived at a curated collection of six essential pieces, including 21" and 25" Wheeled Duffels; a Toiletry Kit; 25" and 30" Spinners and a Portable Battery Charger.
Designed and manufactured by the teams responsible for crafting award-winning eBags brand products, the TripAdvisor Travel Collection is held to the same standards as all eBags products. Premium fabrics, thoughtful construction and carefully considered details will define the line, which is the first collaboration of its kind between two global travel industry leaders.
"As a company, we pride ourselves on being good listeners," says eBags Co-Founder and EVP, Peter Cobb. "Customer comments have driven countless refinements to eBags brand products, and we're grateful for the opportunity to keep innovating, every single day. Now, with TripAdvisor , we have applied the collective knowledge of millions of real travelers to real products. That's a win-win for everyone involved." The TripAdvisor Collection debuted at eBags on October 6, and the two companies are investigating additional ways to collaborate and share their travel expertise with one another.
