Crumpler Vis-á-Vis Luggage

By

Description

Vis-á-Vis is an execution in aesthetic ideals and functional innovation. Considering the user in all aspects of design this product is intuitive, tough for the demands of travel, and constructed to last its lifetime guarantee.

Tailored fabric handles make it as easy to carry as it is to wheel, and provide a zip-protection mechanism. The handles wrap the case for aesthetics as well as strength; held in place by multifunctional bridges doubling as part of the unique Internal Compression System. This system allows user flexibility in packing – all items are strapped into place ensuring minimal movement in transit.

Key Features

1

Internal Compression System.

This unique system locks items firmly in place and prevents clothing and items shifting to the bottom of the case during use. This mechanism is completely unique, and solves what we consider the greatest shortfall of hard luggage. It’s also the only feature in the case’s minimal interior.

Our Internal Compression System is currently patent pending.

2

Tailored Fabric Handles.

These heavy-duty handles allow easy and comfortable transition from wheel to carry, and are aesthetically and structurally important. Wrapping the entire case, this feature strengthens the joining of the two outer shells, and is a colour and textural design feature. The use of textile is also a reference to our traditional bag making methods.

3

Over-packing Hooks.

We understand the weakest point on hard luggage is the zip. We added hooks attached to the outside of the case to take the strain off the zip during travel. It also acts as a final safe guard should the zipper for any reason give way. Rest assured: no more burst luggage.

4

Recessed Wheels.

Wheels are recessed into the case making them stronger and less prone to damage. This also lowers the centre of gravity, increasing case stability and maneuverability – something we found a point of issue with other hard case luggages.
