When half the fun is getting there

July 2012

It’s an adventure more than 20 years in the making as National Geographic rolls out its personal brand of luggage.

Inspired by the voyages of its explorers and photographers, National Geographic partnered with the Canadian company Holiday Group—a widely respected travel-gear innovator. They designed what they call a timeless line that meets the demands of any journey.

The Kontiki series with its retro canvas look conjures images of an Indiana Jones-style adventure. The Appalachian series is more modern-looking but no less exciting.

The photographic series is made of hard-sided cases with National Geographic archival photos, like a polar bear and cubs or a collage interspersed with correspondance from the society’s founders.

There are smaller pieces in the works: backpacks, insulated lunch bags and tablet and ebook reader cases.
