National Geographic : 1969 Dec
W 2b a; How far do you think you'd get on looks 'alone? Don't get us wrong. We'd be the first to say a suitcase should be as nice looking as the clothes inside. But if the case doesn't have a good body, you've got a problem. We give our soft, pretty case a stainless steel frame. So you never have to worry about it losing its shape or getting old before its time. We put foam padded handles on to make it easier to carry (in case you have to carry it yourself). An, .. a non-spring combination lock you ca set yourself. But if you're really only looking for looks, our case is houndstooth tweed. As pretty as the kind that's used to SRtl cover you. And we Scotchgard the houndstooth before we put it on the case. Besides beige, there's r i blue and green. In lots of sizes, and a matching tote bag, too. You see, this strength stuff is very important to us (we use it in all our hard cases). But we think we did a nice job of cov eying it up. by< American ?burister RPM Amer'inTourster 4,.
