Travelpro International, the leading manufacturer of lightweight durable luggage, is proud to partner with National Geographic, one of the world’s largest scientific and educational nonprofit organizations, to introduce the Kontiki™ adventure luggage collection. National Geographic has selected the Montreal-based Holiday Group Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary Travelpro International Inc. in the United States as its luggage and travel accessories licensee for the National Geographic and National Geographic Explorer™ brands in North America.

Inspired by safari travellers and explorers, the Kontiki luggage collection combines the ruggedly stylish retro look of yesteryear with today’s modern travel features. Kontiki luggage is made with recycled khaki-colored fabric that looks exactly like canvas, yet is much lighter and more durable. Rich faux-leather accents and antique brass hardware finish emphasize the authentic safari style. This versatile 8-piece offering combines lightweight long-lasting upright luggage, soft and rolling duffels, a messenger bag and a daypack, all in one matching collection.

“Ideal for camping, skiing and off-road trips, the Kontiki Duffels are a must-have for adventurous travellers. With recycled khaki fabric, this collection is explorer-ready and eco-friendly,” said Scott Applebee Vice President of Marketing for Travelpro. “Additionally, National Geographic’s net proceeds support vital exploration, conservation, research and education programs.”

The Kontiki luggage collection has unique features for every adventure traveller’s needs. The ball-bearing in-line skate wheels on the upright and rolling duffel models are tested for over 25 miles and the handle system is tested over 12,500 cycles for optimal performance. The collection comes standard with a unique interior lining featuring a map of the world, capturing the importance and spirit of National Geographic.

Multiple exterior pockets allow easy access to a laptop or tablet, boarding pass, cellphone electronics and more. Other features include 2 ½” expansion capability for additional packing room, a removable drawstring laundry bag to keep dirty and clean clothes separate and a built-in interior wet pocket to store toiletries or wet items. The duffels have a convenient drop bottom compartment that is ideal for storing shoes and bulky gear.

The Kontiki Collection is made with khaki fabric from recycled materials. The entire line includes the following options: 22” Soft Duffel, Daypack, Messenger Bag, 22” Expandable Rollaboard® Luggage, 26” Expandable Rollaboard® Luggage, 26” Expandable Drop Bottom Rolling Duffel, 32” Expandable Drop Bottom Rolling Duffel and 30” Cargo Duffel.
