Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/09/2011 -- Travelpro®, Atlantic® Luggage and Austin House™ are pleased to announce their “2011 Gift Guide for the Travelling Dad.” Show your appreciation this Father’s Day with a gift for Dads who love to travel from their superb lines of luggage and unique travel accessories.
“The ‘2011 Gift Guide for the Travelling Dad’ offers shoppers a variety of products to choose from our newly launched innovative luggage collections: Platinum® 7 and WalkAbout® Lite 4 and the Executive Pro™ business case line,” said Scott Applebee, Vice President of Marketing for the Travelpro® family of brands. “We offer high quality, lightweight and durable luggage and a variety of practical inexpensive travel accessories that are perfect gifts for fathers who travel for business or leisure.”
The new Travelpro Platinum 7 Soft Duffel Bag is ideal for hassle-free travelling for Dad. The bag features a large U-shaped opening to the main compartment, an adjustable, padded shoulder strap and a unique zippered bottom pocket that provides easy storage and access to last minute items. The Platinum 7 Soft Duffel Bag is available in wine and black fabric colors with black nickel zipper pulls and herringbone trim. It includes the “Travelpro Worry-Free” warranty, which guarantees that your luggage is free from defects in materials and workmanship, and also covers repairs of damage caused by airline baggage handlers for the life of the bag.
If Dad is a frequent business traveller, then any one of these two choices from the new Travelpro Executive Pro business case collection is an ideal Father’s Day gift. The Executive Pro Checkpoint Friendly Computer Brief is lightweight and durable and will allow Dad to pass through airport security without the hassle of removing his laptop. Just unzip the back and lay it flat to pass it through the X-ray machine. Another great choice is the Travelpro Executive Pro Computer Backpack with several main storage compartments, a padded computer sleeve and a full business organizer. This collection includes a Lifetime Warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
Built to suit any budget, the Travelpro WalkAbout Lite 4 20” Widebody Spinner with Suiter features a dual wheel spinner system with large rear wheels.
The user can switch effortlessly from rolling upright beside them to being pulled behind. The 20” Widebody Spinner easily fits into airline overhead bins and has the storage capacity of a 22” Rollaboard®. A lightweight removable garment suiter prevents wrinkling of blouses and shirts and doubles as a packing divider. The Walkabout® Lite 4 collection is available in blue and black fabric colors and comes with a Lifetime Warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
With the spike in airline overweight and checked-baggage fees, the lightweight Atlantic Compass® 2 21”Spinner collection will allow Dad to pack more without exceeding weight limits, or checking in his bag. Carry handles on three sides make it easy to lift into and out of cars and airplane overhead bins. The Compass 2 four-wheel Spinners can roll in multiple directions or move easily through airports like a two-wheel Upright. Compass 2 is available in black and cranberry with stylish satin accents. It carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Austin House™, a leading brand of clever travel accessories, features a multitude of cost- effective items that will make unique and practical gifts for this Father’s Day. The Austin House Universal Adapter with USB is compatible with outlets in more than 160 countries. For Dad’s who are always on-the-go, the Austin House Travel Neck Pillow offers head support for more comfortable plane, train or car trips. Another great gift idea is the compact Auto Emergency Kit. The Kit is 6 Tools in 1 with a super bright, white LED flashlight, a red LED warning flasher, a razor-sharp blade to cut off a seat belt, a pointed metal hammer for breaking windows, an emergency air bag spear, a high pitch whistle and a separate magnetic base to hold the tool to the vehicle’s roof or trunk for better visibility.
