This episode is bought to you with the help of Lat56. Lat56 are a sharp, smart and efficient baggage company that help you take off relaxed, and arrive ready to take on the world. In 2011 I completed 122 flights, and without their NASA-spec materials making such a solid travel system, the hours spent with my luggage being thrown from one plane to another would have caused me a big headache.
With their bold and strong aesthetics, they make no compromises to achieve the balance between performance and style. With a lifetime guarantee, you'll be safe in the knowledge that their products will stand the test of time. When I bought my first travel bag from them, they only sold their flagship garment bag; an ingenious suit carrier that's stylish, compact and crucially for me going from gig to gig, didn't crease the suits. Since then, they have branched out to carry-on luggage, backpacks, duffel bags, laptop bags and even washbags!
I'd only mention the company if I used and approved of them, and I do both. And you know what, the thing I love about them the most, is that after seven years of wear and tear, my first bag still looks as new as the backpack I bought six months ago. So if you're a busy traveller and want something that is stylish and secure, click here to grab yourself something special.
