(Toronto, Canada) â€“ Tilley Endurables, makers of the iconic Tilley Hats and superior travel apparel, is unveiling their next evolution of their travel bag collection at the upcoming Travel Goods Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, March 6-8, 2012 (booth #912). Handcrafted in Canada, the new line features 100 percent waxed nylon combined with naturally cured and hand distressed Italian leather than continues to age with grace.
Inspired by a 65-year-old WWII Canadian officer’s field bag, the Tilley Travel Bag Collection began with the introduction of the INTERPID shoulder bag in 2009. With an expansion to include four additional styles in 2011, all five bags now feature waxed nylon. However, Tilley has kept the waxed cotton INTREPID II bag due to consumer demand.
Each bag in the collection (with the exception of the toiletry case) carries its own unique numbered brass plate located on the exterior leather patch. If the owner does lose their bag, the finder can call Tilley who will, in turn, contact the owner.
In addition to the INTREPID III shoulder bag, other styles available include:
Duffel Bag II (MSRP $378) â€“ tan canvas with distressed brown leather
Carry-on II (MSRP$ 338) â€“ black canvas with distressed tan leather
Cambridge Carryall II (MSRP $288) – black canvas with distressed tan leather
Classic Toiletry Case II (MSRP $108) â€“ tan canvas with distressed brown leather
The five distinct styles from Tilley’s new travel bag collection will be available Fall 2012 in specialty outdoor retailers and online at www.Tilley.com.
