Heys America Luggage Meshes Pop Art and Travel

Heys America Luggage has become a global leader in luggage design with their innovative and original collections. They have created two Limited Edition luggage series, Britto and Fernando Volken Togni. Each collection combines a unique pop art design with the high standard features of all Heys America cases. These designs and patterns transform your luggage into a work of art.

The Heys America Fernando Volken Togni (FVT) Collection is unlike any other. It features three groups; FVT Cities, FVT World, and FVT USA. Togni is a Brazilian-born illustrator currently living in London. His art style is bold and unique. He uses vivid colors and sharp shapes to create a design of organized chaos. Each collection offers a three piece luggage set, such as the Heys America FVT USA 3 Piece Set, that includes 21”, 26”, and 30” uprights. All uprights are also available as single items to better suit your needs or allow you to mix and match. The Cities Collection highlights New York in the Heys America FVT Cities 30” Spinner.

The Britto by Heys America Collection, while also featuring a pop art style, is vastly different from FVT. It is designed by Romero Britto, a Brazilian-born Florida resident with a neo-pop style. Neo-pop combines pop art with graffiti. With this style, he created lively, fresh and happy designs shown on this Britto by Heys A New Day 26” Expandable Spinner. The bright colors stand out on the hardside cases. Like the FVT, this collection includes luggage sets and individual spinner suitcases, along with beauty cases and smaller travel duffels, totes and business pieces.

All Heys America collections are held to a high standard. Each suitcase, made from polycarbonate composite material, is both lightweight and durable, even the Britto by Heys Butterfly Love 30” Expandable Spinner. The impact-resistant and scratch-resistant printed exterior is protected by a layer of clear coat that provides a beautiful, glossy finish. Designed for easy maneuverability, each suitcase has four spinner wheels for an ultra-smooth and effortless 360 degree rolling. All pieces, including the Heys America FVT Cities 21” Spinner, feature a fully lined interior with built-in divider and mesh pocket. Heys included a built-in TSA lock for your safety and a zippered expansion system to provide you with 20% more packing capacity.

Pop art originated in the mid-1950s in Britain and late 1950s in America. The term was invented in 1955 by Lawrence Alloway, a British curator. Characterized by pop culture and consumerism, the concept of pop art refers to the attitude and not the art itself. It often uses images currently used in advertising, such as logos or product labels, comic books, and news. The style is bold, vibrant, and simple, and often features bright colors.

Best Hardsided Luggage Reviews

Hardsided luggage, many of the top luggage brands offer it, Samsonite, Heys USA, Antler, Rimowa Luggage, Bric’s Luggage and International Traveller.  With the many choices in the marketplace, consumers want to know if hardsided luggage travels well, what is hardsided luggage’ packing capacity and the dependability of cheap luggage sets. Continuing with Irv’s Luggage series on customer luggage reviews, this week we will be looking at the top customer reviews of hardsided luggage:

Crown Edition by Heys USA Crown V 26″ Spinner Case

Excellent case

This is an excellent suitcase. First, [Crown Luggage] has more storage space than other cases of its size, presumably due to the fact that it has a frameless construction. It glides along with no effort, and it’s strong enough that I can rest my 20 pound computer case on top of it as I roll it along. After a few trips, the shell is holding up very well. It looks like this case and I are going to have a long and happy relationship. I’ve saving up for another (smaller) case now!

Strong, Durable, Classy

Used the product on a week trip to San Francisco where I would need to keep under the airline’s weight limit and still be able to bring dress and casual items. This bag did not disappoint in its large capacity, security, and durability. The bag looks virtually new even with the handling from the airlines and weather. The diamond finish definitely helps it stand out from the crowd of cloth luggage on the carousel, definitely a high recommendation.   

Samsonite F’Lite GT 31″ Upright High Sierra

Awesome piece of luggage

Just bought this luggage to use on a recent trip to Singapore, luggage was very roomy. Protected my fragile items well and stood up to International travel well. I previously bought a hard side Samsonite suitcase back in 1995 of the same material and it is still good, holding up well and I still use it. Only bought this one because I needed a bigger suitcase. So would wholeheartedly recommend this one to anyone.

Excellent build quality

It is a good size piece of luggage that weighs very little yet is still rugged enough to withstand a beating.

Heys 4 Wheel Drive 3 Piece Hard side Luggage Set

The lightest luggage we have ever had

Cruising, and with airlines charging for overweight, this luggage is perfect… more people come up and ask us, “Where did you get that”… Ours is bright orange. We constantly   recommend it…

Samsonite Winfield 28″ Expandable Spinner

This is wonderful luggage. Great for airport security and customs, I was shocked that it was made  in China though. Can’t we make these right here in the USA????

International Traveller Large Dot 28″ 4 Wheel Upright

Freakin Sweet!

Has more space than I originally thought it would. Spinner wheels make maneuvering and walkingthrough airport super easy. Received compliments from other passengers on the cool look and design. Very durable-took this on a plane trip and a cruise. Now I want the rest of the set!

International Traveller Augusta 20″ 4 Wheel Upright

A great case to transport a dialysis machine

My husband is on dialysis and we needed a hard sided wheeled case to transport his cycler machine when traveling. The case that is sold for the machine is very big and quite expensive. We ordered this case to use on an upcoming trip to Aruba. The measurements seemed perfect, however when the case arrived it was about 1″ too small and that was because of the interior rounded corners. We returned the 20″ case and purchased the same case in the 24″ and it is perfect. […] we plan to recommend this case to other patients at the dialysis center. Our trip is in a couple weeks, so I will write back and let you know exactly how the case worked out…going through the airport, security, check-in etc…
