NEW YORK, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its 165-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Fold Flat Luggage, a soft-sided suitcase or carry-on that compacts to less than half their size for space-efficient storage.

The luggage is made from durable yet soft nylon twill fabric that holds its shape when in use yet folds to less than 7"-wide for convenient storage.

"Unlike typical luggage that requires precious storage space in a closet, The Fold Flat Luggage slides into the included clear PVC bag and can be kept under a bed or on a shelf when not in use," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns.

The Fold Flat Luggage has a large padded exterior zippered pocket and two zippered interior pockets ideal for a passport and cell phone. The bag's top and side padded carrying handles, a telescoping aluminum handle, and two smooth-rolling polyurethane wheels allow ease of navigation through airport terminals.

"The Fold Flat Luggage holds enough clothes for a three-day trip and weighs only 5 1/2 to 7 3/4 lbs., providing optimal storage without excessive bulk," explained Mr. Berns.

The Fold Flat Luggage is available from Hammacher Schlemmer as a carry-on for $189.95 or a suitcase for $229.95. For more information about these products, please visit http://www.hammacher.com/83513 or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at pr@hammacher.com .
