Briggs & Riley Adds 20' Carry-On Computer Upright To Its Industry-Leading baseline Collection

More Leading Edge Design And Performance For Frequent Business Travelers

Hauppauge, N.Y., February 28 2007 – Briggs & Riley Travelware introduces the Briggs & Riley 20' Carry-On Computer Upright®, an important addition to its Baseline® Collection aimed at frequent business travelers.  The new piece is spacious enough to accommodate and protect everything a traveler needs for a short business trip.  The built-in compartment lets travelers store clothing and laptop in a single bag.  In addition, the laptop compartment is uniquely located on the outside of the bag for faster, easier access during security checks.  Yet it’s compact enough to easily fit into the overhead compartment of most major airline carriers.

Innovative features include a front-loading computer pocket that fits most 17” laptop screens and a zippered cord pocket on the interior lid to store electronic accessories. The 20' Carry-On Computer Upright keeps Baseline on the leading edge of performance luggage for the demanding business traveler.  It rounds out an already robust collection from the number one brand of upscale luggage sold in specialty stores.  And like all Briggs & Riley products, the 20' Carry-On Computer Upright is backed by the Briggs & Riley Simple as that® lifetime warranty.

Jim Lahren, vice president of marketing for Briggs & Riley says, “Baseline is the preeminent collection for the frequent business traveler, and our new 20' Carry-On Computer Upright makes the collection even stronger.  The Baseline customer doesn’t compromise.  This new piece provides more of the outstanding performance they’ve come to expect from the baseline collection.” 

The new 20' Carry-On Computer Upright is the ultimate upright for road warriors who want to carry only one bag for clothing and laptop.
