Delsey Reveals Father-Friendly Garment Bags

HANOVER, MD--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2013) -  Delsey, creator of feature-rich luggage, is offering Americans a new way to look after their favorite dads this Father's Day. By giving the gift of a garment bag, loved ones can ensure the fathers in their lives are well taken care of even when they are away.

It is no secret that wives, adult children and other family members play an important role in making sure dads look divine. Whether it is coordinating clothing, pressing pants, or simply providing a reassuring once-over, dads of all ages enjoy a little extra tender loving care. But the question is... how to keep up with the TLC when dad is traveling?

Thanks to 65 years in the luggage business, Delsey recommends garment bags as the secret to pampering dads when they are away. Garment bags are designed to transport special clothing, and especially suits or dresses, while keeping items neat and nearly wrinkle-free. Perfect for formal events, overnight travel, or business trips, garment bags offer an attractive packing alternative that ensures clothing is ready to wear upon arrival.

Garment bags should be carefully selected based on the needs of each particular traveler. Vehicle trunk space, airline carry-on and check-in restrictions, duration of the trip and number and size of items must all be taken into account. Delsey creates luggage for everyone, and divides garment bags into two distinct categories for different types of travel -- garment covers and rolling or non-rolling garment bags.

Garment covers are light, protective sleeves designed to accommodate one or two outfits, for transportation to or from special events, or when packing special items you do not want to include in your traditional suitcase. Great for car travel, garment covers can also be used to store formal clothing in closets and protect these precious items from water, mold or moths.

Clothing hanger systems are the primary differentiator between garment covers and garment bags. With garment covers, travelers slip their regular clothing hangers through a hole at the top of the cover. Delsey non-rolling and rolling garment bags feature a clamp inside the bag that firmly secures individual hangers, as well as two exterior hooks to hang the bag in a closet or on the back of a door upon arrival.

Non-rolling bags are framed bags and offer several pockets perfect for shoes, accessories, toiletries and folded items. Non-rolling bags offer two carry options as each bag features a top handle and a detachable, padded shoulder strap. More compact and lighter weight than wheeled bags, these bags are excellent for short term trips, or as an additional bag when less fragile items are packed in a suitcase.

Rolling garment bags are the most robust and offer enough packing space accommodating several outfits for a longer trip, with pockets shoes, folded sweaters, ties, belts and anything else people may want to pack. These bags usually include four wheels and a pull handle so travelers can roll contents rather than having weight on their arms.

Delsey provides innovative garment solutions in almost every collection. Available at most department stores and specialty luggage shops, Delsey garment covers and bags range from $39.99 for a simple cover to $329.99 for the high-end rolling bags.
