Briggs & Riley Enhances Its Baseline Collection With Ultimate Performance Features

Updated Expansion System, New 3-In-1 Lid with Removable Suit Folder, Ergonomic Handles and New Chocolate Color Make This Signature Line Tops in Functionality and Style

Hauppauge, N.Y. Apirl 15, 2008 – Briggs & Riley Travelware, a leader in innovative, high-quality luggage, continues to make business travel hassle-free, enjoyable and efficient with its updated Baseline Collection. Featuring the most up-to-date engineering upgrades, including an ergonomically designed one-touch expansion system and a 3-in-1 lid that allows for flat packing, the latest Baseline Collection remains the most functional and comprehensive in the industry.  Additionally, the company continues to put style at the forefront with the introduction of chocolate brown, complementing the line’s core colors of black and olive. With these enhancements, Briggs & Riley’s Baseline Collection is the ultimate choice for the serious traveler who requires rich features with dependability and style to boot.

Georgene Rada, vice president of product development and design at Briggs & Riley states,“As a performance-driven brand, Briggs & Riley constantly improves our products to exceed our customers’ expectations. For example, as a pioneer of flat-packing, we’ve designed a new 3-in-1 interior lid pocket that features a garment sleeve, a packing panel plus a tie pocket.  The new interior lid pocket allows for wrinkle-free flat packing and easier access to garments.  Our goal is to make travel easy and ensure that our customers have the means to do it.”

Most notably, Baseline’s LXpandable™ Uprights® feature a brand new pop-up expansion system that is easier and more ergonomic to use.  With a simple touch, the bag expands with the assistance of the spring loaded mechanism.  Along with the new 3-in-1 interior lid, other innovative features include updated top and side carry handles that are leather wrapped and ergonomically shaped for greater comfort and ease of use.

With these new enhancements to the Baseline Collection, Briggs & Riley is continuously striving to meet the travel needs of its customer, the serious traveler.
