00137461000-1CHOOSE DELSEY luggage, and you are buying into the benefits of a French success story which has run for over seven decades. As a flagship brand, Delsey certainly is not one for resting on its laurels. Rather, the company aims to stay ahead of the game, pursuing innovation by anticipating new ways of using luggage.

The Beaubourg is part of a line inspired by extreme sports and new technology, and will particularly appeal to urbanites and travellers. The hybrid line combines hardside and softside features, created by Delsey’s designers using innovative materials for optimal comfort.

00137441000-5I have been using the new PC version for several foreign assignments, and as a carry-on bag it is perfect. To access the rear zipped storage area you flip the shoulder straps over to the front, and then you can store your computer safely, thanks to the  special shock-absorbent padding. I have also been impressed with the amount of room in the main compartment, which also contains an internal zipped compartment.

The front storage area is accessed via a zip, housing yet more decent storage space, and included is a key clip, two pen holders and a couple of other pockets for smaller items, including one for a mobile phone. The front exterior of the bag has a further pocket protected by a water-resistant zip, and is perfect for easily accessible personal items.

With the Beaubourg, you can be assured of no more carry-ons at check-in.
