March 11, 2016 - United States Of America

Briggs & Riley, world-renowned brand of premium luggage known for performance and industry-leading lifetime warranty, has developed the first hard-sided luggage that expands and compresses to original size, named Sympatico CX.

The new luggage allows for high-capacity packing inside popular hard-sided luggage which is lightweight, durable, will a lifetime warranty. The Sympatico CX collection will allow travellers to expand their hard-side cases up to 25 per cent, then compress back down to original size. This is a major win for hard-side case devotees, whose previous expansion options in hard-side cases were limited to flimsy zippers, according to a press release.

Each bag in the Sympatico collection features an elegant blue lining, with contrasting cream stitching and pockets. In addition to the proprietary expansion-compression system, Sympatico CX spinners feature, YKK self-repairing zippers, SmartLink system to attach one hard sided bag to another for easy transport, and multiple handle extension settings to accommodate different heights.

The bag also features TSA-friendly built-in combination lock, adjustable garment panels to keep clothing neat and wrinkle free, double spinner wheels for the smooth rides, steel components for extra durability and long rolling life, and Briggs & Riley’s signature Outsider handle, which gives the bag a flat packing interior.

The company’s CEO Richard Krulik said, “We are thrilled to bring innovations to market that allow us to meet the needs of travellers and trends. We take our time to carefully engineer bags that help consumers navigate the journey and protect their belongings in a stylish, durable bag that will always perform based on our reality engineering.” (GK)
