International Traveller Carry On Luggage
International Traveller – rebranded as IT Luggage in 2011 – was established in London in 1985 as Landor Ltd (later Landor & Hawa) with the goal of designing luggage for business and leisure travellers alike. Landor was the first British luggage company to import from China, enabling them to offer affordable luggage without compromising style or functionality. In fact, a dedicated quality control and sourcing office was established in China in the mid-1990s. Today, IT Luggage supplies more than 38 countries and produces over 3 million luggage pieces a year, making it one of the most successful luggage manufacturers globally.
As it names implies, IT creates luggage with the needs of the international traveller in mind. It comes up with dozens of new designs each year to accommodate men, women and children’s tastes. IT Luggage carry-ons’ main strengths are undeniably their innovative designs and use of ultra light components, to enable you to pack as much as you’d like without fear of exceeding airlines’ weight restrictions. As the latter have been getting more stringent in recent years, IT Luggage is definitely on the up.
IT Luggage was one of the first to introduce lightweight hardside luggages, which went on to influence a lot of luggage collections you see today. 2003 saw the introduction of a patented hard shell expander system (expandable hardside luggage!). Unsurprisingly, IT currently offers some of the world’s best-selling Polycarbonate/ABS luggage. Furthermore, IT Luggage owns patents on other innovative technologies, such as Frameless® (soft case with no internal frame which bounces back into shape) and Carry-Tow® (locking system which connects up to 2 or 3 suitcases together). But one of its most famous innovations is the World’s Lightest collection (see table below), introduced in 2008, which has been greatly improved since, offering spinner wheels, lighter weight (under 3.5 lbs!) and flashy colour options. In 2012, the Travel Goods Association listed IT World’s Lightest Carry-On Luggage as one of the five most innovative carry-ons in the industry.
Besides hardside cases, IT Luggage uses strong denier polyester for its soft luggage. Some of their carry-ons offer fun and whimsical designs, such as the Paris, Paradise Beach and Faded Cities collections. If that weren’t enough, IT Luggage carry-ons are also some of the most affordable out there, without being “cheap”.
