ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Nov. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
- World traveler, producer, author and host of CBS's The Amazing Race, Phil Keoghan, has joined HSN to launch his exclusive new Phil Keoghan NOW collection. The new line gives those who love to travel - and want to eliminate the stress of packing – a practical luggage collection to help customers pack efficiently and keep organized throughout your entire journey.
- "HSN has a track-record of bringing innovative, high-quality products to their customers, so this is a natural partnership for me," said Phil Keoghan. "NOW stands for 'No Opportunity Wasted' which is my personal philosophy for living each day as it was your last. I took my first overseas trip when I was two and I have been traveling around the world ever since. After millions of miles on the road and visiting more than 100 countries, I have designed and tested a packing system that will ensure you are ready to take on your next big adventure."
- The exclusive HSN Phil Keoghan NOW collection includes high-quality, durable pieces in multiple colors and sizes. Each piece has been designed and tested by Phil himself during his rigorous travel schedule. The luggage provides solutions to many challenges that Phil has recognized through his travels such as ensuring that your carry-on luggage fits in the airlines overhead compartments; long-lasting, durable fabrics so your pieces withstand the rigorous travel; piece of mind that zippers won't rip and break; the ability for 360 degree mobility to help navigate crazy airport terminals; 20 percent expanded packing room for your treasures you bought on vacation; and finally, wet/dirty storage compartments, otherwise known as the "Luggage Hamper", for your wet bathing suits and stinky socks.
- The launch of the Phil Keoghan NOW collection includes a 19" deluxe backpack with removable laptop case, both 20" and 28" spinner upright roller bags, and Phil's innovative packing system.
- Tune in to catch the debut of the Phil Keoghan NOW collection and Phil's travel "tips and tricks" on HSN on November 11th at 2 AM, 1 PM and 8 PM EST and November 12th at 9 AM and 6 PM EST. Visit HSN.com/philkeoghan for more information.
