Travel today demands a modular, lightweight, and technology-rich approach. Whether motivated by the convenience of carry-on, the desire to avoid baggage fees or lost luggage, or simply wanting bags to be easier to manage upon arrival at the destination, travelers today want less weight and less bulk. This doesn’t mean bring less with you, it means using travel gear that weighs less and take up less space. The new Sea to Summit TravellingLightTM range of travel products does just that.
The new Sea to Summit TravellingLightTM items weigh half of comparable travel cubes, kits and pouches. By using the same technical, lightweight materials as many of their backpacking products, Sea to Summit have created a much lighter, more compact and easier to organize travel packing system. There are more than 30 items in three colors options for maximum organization with minimal weight and bulk – items like packing cells, shoe bags, toiletry kits, shirt folders, travel wallets, padded cases and document cases that all use Sea to Summit’s technical Ultra-Sil Cordura fabric – for ultimate weight savings without sacrificing durability. TravellingLightTM accessories are designed with curved shapes that fit into any shape or size of modern hard or soft luggage while being significantly lighter than current market offerings.
“We incorporate the same features of ultra-light weight backcountry travel and adventure gear into traditional travel accessories,” said Andrew Dunbar, co-owner of Sea to Summit, Inc., the distributor of Sea to Summit in North America. “Whether your goal is to avoid checking luggage or you’re a savvy traveler knows how critical extra weight and bulk is when you’re living out of a suitcase. Eighty percent of the items in our TravellingLightTM line weigh less than 3 ounces.”
“Whether you travel internationally or domestically, the restrictions on baggage weight and carry-on size are becoming more stringent,” explained Shelley Dunbar, co-owner of Sea to Summit, Inc. By going modular with our minimalist Travelling LightTM concept, you can easily pack just a carry-on and avoid excess baggage fees and possible lost luggage. You’ll get through airport security more efficiently knowing where all items are stowed and you’ll be able to pack them back in quickly as well. Once on the plane, it’s also a plus to have a lighter weight bag for lifting it into the overhead bins and it’s certainly easier to manage once at your destination.”
The entire line is only offered through specialty outdoor retailers throughout the U.S. and Canada with prices ranging from $9.95 to $34.95 MSRP (both US and Canadian pricing). “We are working with retailers who focus on meeting the unique needs of travelers and adventurers with customers who look for what is new and fresh – and not everywhere,” said Tim Macartney-Snape, mountaineer and co-director of Sea to Summit in Australia.
Sea to Summit Inc. brings more than a decade of award-winning innovative essentials to the U.S. For the past 17 years, Sea to Summit, based in Perth, Western Australia, has been the leading designer and manufacturer of lightweight backpacking and adventure travel gear distributed around the globe. As the founding sponsor, Sea to Summit helped introduce the Leave No Trace concept of minimal environmental impact to Australia in 2003. The company was named in honor of co-founder Tim Macartney-Snape’s incredible 1990 solo expedition from the Bay of Bengal in India to the top of Mt. Everest. Whether your adventures take you to the sea or to a summit or places in between, Sea to Summit products will more than earn their space in your bag and gear closet.
