Premiere: Autumn-winter novelties 2018/2019

This summer we are proud to present a real premiere to you: as of now, a new range of HALFAR® products not only awaits for PSI, but already in summer. Now you can look forward to our new promotional bags twice a year.

Premiere: Neuheiten im Sommer bei HALFAR® / Premiere: Novelties by HALFAR® in the middle of the year

Fine structures, exciting shapes and strong functions put you in the mood for new promotional stories. And we have planned in series to increase the excitement even more. Colour can’t be missing either… but take a look for yourself:

ELEGANCE – Elegant and urban city trips

With ELEGANCE, you will find a new, modern series from HALFAR®, which offers a huge selection, from small accessories to large travel bags. Their fine mélange fabric and the muted colours set the perfect stage for all logos and, thanks to many well thought out details, the bags are designed to suit many different target groups. In this series you will find a case and a zipper bag in which lots of little necessities can be stored and transported. But both can also be used well as gift packaging.

We have also continued to pursue the small-large concept and have designed two new models, which are available in a small and larger format. One example is the ELEGANCE backpack in size S and M. Whilst the S size is suitable for women and girls, and picks up on current trends, the M size can be used as the equivalent for males. Of course both backpacks can be used by the other gender.

The shoulder bag and travel bag ELEGANCE are another duo. At first glance, they only differ in terms of size. But if you take a closer look, you will find several features with which both play to their individual advantages. The shoulder bag with its storage space, which can easily accommodate two large A4 folders, can also be used as a flying companion. After all, it has an attachment loop for trolleys and the dimensions are approved by most airlines. The travel bag, the larger version of the shoulder bag, offers much more space. Its five base feet protect it against dirt and the main compartment holds everything you need for your upcoming travels. Both bags mean you will be perfectly equipped for a short holiday or the next business trip.

The ELEGANCE series is completed by a practical urban shopper, which can be varied in size by the side press studs. A modern cross bag, which is perfect as a men’s bag and offers protection to technical equipment, from mobile phone to tablet. There is also a duffle bag in the trendy kit bag format, which can be comfortably carried like a backpack.

With such a wide range, we are certain that we will have the right bag for everyone.

STORM – Sporty, technical, dynamic

If anyone’s thinking they have already seen the STORM in the HALFAR® range, then they are right. The striking backpack in our range of new products already impressed people at the PSI. And now we are delighted to be able to introduce the entire STORM family. Alongside the backpack, you will now also find a shoulder bag and a sport/travel bag in our range. The special thing about the STORM models are the well thought out functions, such as the turned zips and the roll closure, but also the practical lashing straps on the sides. These features and the sturdy material give the series a sporty, modern and technical look. The technical look is supported by the four available colours.

To be brief: The STORM brings a fresh new breeze to everyday life and is guaranteed to attract everyone’s attention.

Shoulder bag KURIER – revival of the HALFAR® classic

The popular classic known by everyone, the promotional bag KURIER, has been updated and now we are able to present, rather proudly, the revival of a real HALFAR® classic!

With a new, stronger material, a young tone-in-tone design, the padded back and in eight modern colours, the KURIER has been impressively rejuvenated. The large print area on the flap still offers plenty of space for company logos or bold messages. And inside, the bag impresses with practical organizer features and a flat insert pocket.

The new KURIER therefore makes a practical companion and one of the most price and fashion-conscious shoulder bags in our range.

And now we hope that you like the new products as much as we do, and we look forward to your feedback. Of course there will be further novelties in time for the PSI, just like every year. As always, the team for promotional bags is pleased to help you with any questions about individual products.

On holiday with hand luggage

On holiday with HALFAR® bags

On holiday with HALFAR® bags

Summer has arrived and lots of people are going on holiday. Whether it’s a short weekend break in Barcelona, a family holiday in Italy or a long-haul trip to Asia, increasing numbers of people are travelling by airplane. Weekend breaks are becoming more and more popular amongst travellers because many airlines now offer their passengers the opportunity to travel without checking in luggage, and only with hand luggage.

However, travellers who only take hand luggage have to stick to the luggage sizes and weights stipulated by the different airlines. The sizes of the various airlines do not generally differ too much. The governing body of airlines, the International Air Transport Association (IATA), recommends a standard size for hand luggage of 55 x 35 x 20 cm (HxWxD) to its members (more than 200 airlines worldwide).

Hand luggage taken on board is allowed to be 55 x 35 x 20 cm (H/W/D) according to the IATA recommendation.

Hand luggage taken on board is allowed to be 55 x 35 x 20 cm (H/W/D) according to the IATA recommendation.

There are no precise guides for the authorised weight because it varies greatly from airline to airline. Most are between 5-12 kg. Anyone who wants to be certain should contact their airline before travelling. Extra costs can otherwise be incurred, because the low-cost airlines especially demand high fees for oversize and heavy hand luggage, which you usually cannot work out in advance.

Hand luggage bags from HALFAR®

Because travellers have such a wide choice when looking for a suitable piece of hand luggage, HALFAR® is pleased to help make your work easier when advising customers. Our list helps you compare the IATA recommendation and the dimensions of HALFAR® bags. In the following list, we compare the sizes of our bags with the IATA recommendation to offer you infomation on whether the product is suitable as hand luggage. Please note that these dimensions correspond with a fully packed bag. This means that several products can still meet the airline’s dimensions if they are not quite filled up, due to the flexible material. Therefore, refer to the pictures in our table as well as the dimensions.

All of the products from the HALFAR® catalogue 2018 are shown in the list with a picture of the item, its number, name, width, height and depth. An extra column also shows whether the listed bag is suitable or unsuitable as hand luggage. This means you can recognise at a glance whether you can recommend the HALFAR® bag as hand luggage for their next trip.

 

     

Good to know…

Not only the luggage size and weight is checked at the airport. At the security check, luggage is inspected for dangerous objects – especially hand luggage. Here are some good tips for future travel preparations:

Carrying liquids

When carrying liquids, remember that liquids can only be carried in bottles, tubes or pots with less than 100 ml of liquid inside. These must be additionally packed in a transparent, re-sealable plastic bag with a maximum of 1 litre in total. The exceptions are important medication that needs to be taken during the flight or baby food. In this case, more can usually be carried and it must not be in a plastic bag.

Carrying sharp objects

When travelling with hand luggage, make sure that no sharp objects such as nail scissors, nail files or pocket knives are in the luggage. Carrying these objects is prohibited.

Prohibited objects in hand luggage

Only allowed or recommended in hand luggage

Alongside objects that do not belong in the hand luggage, there are some that are allowed to be transported in the hand luggage. These particularly include lithium-ion batteries in mobile phones, laptops and cameras and E-cigarettes.

Technical equipment should always be stored in the hand luggage so they do not get lost. Occasionally checked-in luggage ends up in a different place and only arrives several days later. It is therefore advisable to always store personal items such as passports, important documents and keys in the hand luggage.

Now you just need to choose the right bag, follow the advice and off you go! Wherever your travels take you; we wish you a relaxing and care-free holiday. 😉
