Day Bags Save the Day – Briggs & Riley’s BRX Collection adds three new styles

Hauppauge NY - Hail to those who can leave the house with just a key and a few credit cards.  Most of us have a bit of life’s other essentials to carry. From make-up to gym clothes, e-readers, cameras and electronics, society has forced us to carry a larger load just to get through the day.  Thus, Briggs & Riley’s acclaimed BRX Collection is adding three new styles, all day bags to save the day and protect what we carry all day and day to day, launching at the Winter OR Show in Salt Lake City, UT. 

From gym to office or the overhead compartment, the BRX new styles reflect a “grab and go” mentality that makes a multi-purpose promise, including a lifetime performance warranty.  With spaciousness in unisex, neatly compact designs, adventure colors (Slate, Amber, Lava), the new 2012 new BRX bag designs are meant to bring high performance quality and smart design to the day bag market - to eliminate mishaps like over-stuffing regular bags, computer bags that tip open), missing key items when transferring from bag to bag), and provide a stylish, rugged choice for the quality-minded consumer who lives life on the go.

The Exchange 20 Duffle (BD120X) is a scaled down version of the wildly popular Exchange 26 Duffle, which won National Geographic’s Gear of the Year 2010.  This compact duffle converts to a backpack with one quick zip.  This bag’s unique and innovative design provides carrying versatility, cavernous capacity, and rugged durability-easily stowing underneath an airline seat or overhead bin.  Available June 2012, retail price $155.00.

The Express Cabin Duffle (BD117) provides another option for adventurers who need to travel light.  Precisely enough capacity to carry a couple days worth of clothing, the roomy main compartment is easily packable, while smaller pockets and compartments provide that extra organization for smaller travel items.  Available June 2012, retail price $145.00

The Excursion Convertible Brief (BM104) Need a brief for the concrete jungle, and a backpack for the Costa Rican jungle? Done and done.  This smart addition allows adventurers to adapt to their surroundings with one quick zip.  This rugged brief holds up to a 15.4” laptop, and morphs into a backpack when hands-free usage is a must.  Available June, retail price $160.00

The entire BRX adventure travel gear collection is lightweight, high-performance and constructed using only the highest grade of technical materials and fabrics.  Briggs & Riley backs all of its products with the best-in-the-industry Simple as that® lifetime performance guarantee, a guarantee that covers it all; damage caused by an airline or an elephant on safari.  For more information visit
