PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Jan 20, 2016) - DELSEY, the iconic French luggage brand known for both timeless quality and audacious design, is introducing DELSEY CHATILLON, one of the lightest, most durable cases on the market. This feature rich collection includes the DELSEY-patented Overweight Indicator and several organizational options to help make travel seamless for the most experienced travelers.

Lightweight luggage is sought after by frequent travelers looking for an exceptional packing experience. With the carry-on bag weighing less than 5 pounds, DELSEY CHATILLON is a leader in the lightweight industry. For travelers, a lightweight bag means more weight for essential (and non-essential!) items.

In a third party study commissioned by DELSEY Paris, lightweight luggage buyers are looking for bags that answer two additional requests: durability and packing capacity. DELSEY CHATILLON passes the rigorous quality tests all DELSEY bags go through. Made from water-repellent DuraTec™ fabric, the bags include reinforced corners and scratch resistant fabric between the wheels for added protection. Carefully designed for maximum packing capacity, the roomy main compartment of the uprights expand, allowing travelers to pack souvenirs on return journeys.

According to the same DELSEY commissioned study, 98% of travelers who buy lightweight luggage are interested in the DELSEY-patented Overweight Indicator. Built into the case, the device helps anticipate any issues with heavy bags resulting in overweight charges and offers peace of mind. CHATILLON features the DELSEY patented Overweight Indicator on the medium and large uprights. Travelers simply lift the bag holding the Overweight Indicator and a red mark alerts travelers if their bag exceeds the 50 pound limit enforced by most airlines.

DELSEY CHATILLON is also designed with smart organizational options. The carry-on uprights provide storage for electronics in the padded front pocket designed to hold up to a 14" laptop. A second pocket, located at the bottom, provides storage for electronic accessories such as chargers and cords in a removable cable pouch. The medium and large uprights contain an easy-access bottom pocket with water resistant lining to store toiletries, shoes or other last minute items. The fully-lined interior is includes zippered pocket for smaller items and tie down straps to ensure items remain in place. The medium and large uprights feature a garment compartment with a hanger clip and folding bar in the lid, making it easy to pack suits and other formal items.

Easy to maneuver, DELSEY CHATILLON features spinner wheels and a dual locking trolley handle so that travelers can dash through airports with zero weight on arms. Large and comfortable top and side carry handles make lifting the bags easy, while the grab-and-go bottom handle on the large uprights is great for lifting in and out of trunks or onto a luggage rack. Integrated privacy ID tags finish off this feature rich collection for added peace of mind.

Available in black and blue, DELSEY CHATILLON will complement any travel ensemble.
