BOCA RATON, Fla., Feb. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Travelpro®, the inventor of The Original Rollaboard® luggage and a pioneer in innovative luggage design, today, unveiled its lightest-weight line of luggage to-date, the Travelpro® Maxlite® 5 collection, from the 2018 Travel Goods Association (TGA) Show in Las Vegas. With Maxlite® 5, Travelpro® has reduced the luggage weight by up to ½ lb. on select models, while still delivering unmatched durability and modern design. The new collection lightens the load for travelers and gives them the freedom to pack without having to worry about the weight of the suitcase pushing them over airline weight limits.
The Maxlite® 5 collection, designed by Travelpro®'s in-house design team, features sixteen different pieces including Rollaboard® and spinner carry-ons, checked luggage options, as well as a variety of totes and garment bags. The collection is available in five vibrant, on-trend colors including Dusty Rose, Azure Blue, Slate, Midnight Blue and Black.
"At Travelpro® we're focused on crafting luggage that meets the evolving needs of our travelers, while consistently delivering durable, high-quality and beautifully designed pieces that make travel easier and more enjoyable," said Ofelia Silva, EVP Marketing at Travelpro®. "While this is our lightest weight collection ever, Maxlite® 5 stands up in our extensive product testing process, making it one of the most innovative and reliable collections available today."
As with all Travelpro® products, the Maxlite® 5 collection was designed with ultimate durability in mind, rigorously tested to ensure resilience through extreme conditions and repeated use. Backed by Travelpro®'s Built For A Lifetime Limited Warranty, travelers will be protected from functional defects for lifetime of the bag. Travelers can also receive a one-year "worry-free" enhancement through its Trusted Companion Promise by registering the Travelpro® luggage within 120 days of purchase.
The collection will be available for purchase in early April on Travelpro.com, with prices ranging from $69.99-189.99 USD. To learn more about Travelpro®, its collections, and to sign-up to receive the latest collection news and offers, please visit www.Travelpro.com.
