Etherius Gradient Collection Lightweight Design. Legendary Brand.

October 18, 2017 Travel Goods No Comments Email Email

Victorinox Travel Gear launches the Etherius Gradient Collection, imparting new metallic colour schemes to its popular range of lightweight luggage. The eye- catching hues of silver and bronze are enhanced with an elegant gradient effect, created with an advanced technique of film application. The pieces are set to appeal to style-oriented and price-sensitive leisure travelers seeking light, but durable cases.

“This new collection celebrates the joy of travelling with a focus on aesthetic design,” comments Carsten Kulcke, CEO of Victorinox Travel Gear. “At the same time, it is engineered to provide the superior protection, quality and functionality inspired by the Swiss Army Knife that our customers have grown to rely upon.”

As the name suggests – ether indicates the clear upper regions of the sky beyond the clouds – Etherius luggage is ultra-light. The global carry-on weighs just 2.8 kg / 6.17 lbs. Although light, the cases remain remarkably sturdy thanks to break-resistant 100% pure polycarbonate.

The metallic gradient effect is achieved by applying a coloured film to the surface of this tough material before the shell is formed. During the moulding process, the film becomes part of the polycarbonate, resulting in a highly scratch-resistant pattern which covers the entire shell from edge to edge. For extra protection, corner guards are integrated into the areas of the case most prone to impact.

The collection comprises of a cabin case and a check-in case. It also provides the type of easy packing solutions that one expects from Victorinox Travel Gear. Once clothes are folded, they are kept securely in place with Y-shaped compression straps to avoid creases. If more space is needed, the case can be expanded using the zippered system. For those who like to organise their belongings in separate spaces, two divider walls – one of which stretches – offer the ideal solution.

Additional features include a comfort grip, one-touch, dual-trolley handle which locks into multiple positions to accommodate varying heights, and Premium 55MM Hinomoto wheels which ensure a very smooth roll. For travellers seeking extra protection and security, the integrated Travel Sentry® Approved lock allows TSA screeners to open the case without any damage and relock it after inspection. In parallel, the Access Lock Combination Recovery Program allows customers to register and, if necessary, retrieve their lock combination on

Elegant and functional, the Etherius Gradient Collection is the perfect choice to brighten and lighten leisure travels across the globe.
