Lightweight Traveller, the One Stop Shop for All your Travel Needs

September 12, 2013 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Does the prospect of packing and making sure you have the right clothing and gear for your travels fill you with dread? If so, Lightweight Traveller is a unique concept store for the discerning traveller which helps make this a breeze.

With the latest innovations in travel clothing, luggage, security and sanitation, Lightweight Traveller is about offering solutions to the challenges of travelling comfortably, safely and in style with a minimum of gear.

From their own travel experiences and retailing background, Jenny Cusick and Lars Winberg, owners of Lightweight Traveller, saw a gap in the market for a one-stop shop and service to provide travellers with somewhere they could be fully catered for their travelling needs. Jenny says, “our vision was for a place where customers would have access to the best travel brands from around the globe, so whether travelling for business or leisure they would find what they need.”

With knowledge gained from running the Paddy Pallin store in Launceston, Tasmania for nearly 30 years, Jenny and Lars have a wealth of expertise to source the latest clothing, luggage and all manner of useful security and travel items. Jenny and Lars also owned and ran Tasmanian Expeditions – a walking holiday tour company for 14 years, so they really understand the value and benefits of travelling with the right gear.

Lightweight Traveller offers advice and solutions on how to pack for different climates on the one trip and what’s the best easy to care for, easy to pack and lightweight gear. One of their top selling brands are shirts by Exofficio. Made from a technologically advanced fabric called Dryflylite ™, the combination of this lightweight, quick drying and UPF rated sun protection fabric keeps the wearer cool and comfortable. Features include zipped security pockets, long sleeves that can be buttoned up for short sleeves and adjustable ventilation flaps.  Jenny says “not only are Exofficio shirts incredibly functional they are beautifully designed and well-tailored, so you’ll look good too.”

According to Jenny “apart from providing travellers with the benefits of a one stop shop for their travelling needs, the secret to our success is the passion, knowledge and focus on customer service of all our staff.”
