HANOVER, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/13 -- Delsey, creator of feature-rich luggage, is previewing the third generation Over Weight Indicator on the new Helium X'Pert Lite 2.0 collection, set to launch this fall. Designed to signal bags that exceed the standard 50 pound weight restriction enforced by most airlines, the popular patent-pending Delsey device allows travelers to make important packing decisions from wherever they may be, and not at the check-in counter at the airport.
The last decade has seen a significant increase in airline fees and baggage restrictions. Most airlines operate with a standard 50 pound weight limit, and bags that exceed this are subject to steep charges when checking-in. To avoid these extra fees, some travelers frantically reorganize at the airport and shuffle contents from one bag to another.
To make it easier for travelers to abide by strict airline weight restrictions, Delsey has launched an Over Weight Indicator. This Delsey-exclusive system alerts travelers when their bags exceed 50 pounds, empowering them to make important decisions when packing, and eliminating overweight fees and last minute stress at airport check-in. The Over Weight Indicator is especially useful on return trips, when travelers bring home souvenirs in additional to everything originally packed for their trip.
Using the Over Weight Indicator is simple. First, travelers pack their luggage. Next, travelers lift the packed bag by the top carry handle. When lifted, a red mark alerts travelers if their bag exceeds the standard 50 pound weight restriction.
Created for checked luggage, the Delsey Over Weight Indicator is available on the medium and large upright trolleys. Delsey is dedicated to creating luggage that is both fashionable and functional, and the new third generation Over Weight Indicator, ready to be launched on the Delsey Helium X'Pert Lite 2.0 collection, is fully integrated on the top handle, matching the sleek, attractive design of the case.
The Delsey Over Weight Indicator is built into the case, providing a distinct advantage over the other stand-along gadgets travelers must pack separately. Another benefit of the Over Weight Indicator is the fact that it is mechanical, and not battery operated, so travelers do not need to find or replace batteries during their trip.
Set to launch in fall 2013, the Delsey Helium X'Pert Lite 2.0 collection, with the third generation Over Weight Indicator, will be available at department stores and specialty luggage shops.
