We, as a nation appear to be travelling more than we did 50 years ago. Our commute to work is longer. Our circle of friends is wider. Our holidays are further afield. Which is why we need to select the right bag for the right trip. Hideo Wakamatsu’s Casual Luggage range give us a choice of informal luggage solutions – and his global best seller is the Tarpaulin Range. Made from the highest grade tarpaulin – its distinctive, shiny and brightly-coloured. The range has received praise from all quarters and certainly from the people who use it! Not only does this luggage look sensational, but it’s truly the most practical case on the market. It’s lightweight, but the material is tough and waterproof – ensuring that your precious contents stay safe no matter what. Each case is expandable – which mean that you have flexibility when you need it. It can be stowed almost anywhere and there’s always room for more items to be added! If you’re interested in making a great first impression on fellow travellers, then choose from the Tarpaulin Backpack or Messenger Bag. These are items that you can take anywhere, leaving your hands free to deal with maps, food or anything else for that matter. The Messenger Bag and Backpack have been specially designed to evenly distribute weight – so that carrying the items even over long distances shouldn’t pose a problem. If you’re someone who isn’t interested in an off-road experience, then having the wheeled Tarpaulin Trolley is a must. It allows you to fill the case to capacity, while still ensuring that you can transport it with minimum exertion. A great choice for those who like to travel with half a wardrobe with them! Choosing the Tarpaulin Range means that packing is a dream. The cases have multiple pockets and zipped compartments. This is great for occasions when you need to locate things quickly and without hassle. There is even an accessible padded pocket to keep your iPad or laptop safe.
