Introducing The Cargo Range from Bennett Winch
Lightweight yet sturdy and with plenty of room, the Cargo from Bennett Winch is your old holdall perfected
In partnership with Bennett Winch
And as our plans have adapted so too have our ideas of what we actually need from a holiday, and how best to pack for one too. Thus, the sturdy yet cumbersome suitcases of long-haul trips gone by have been jettisoned in favour of road-trip friendly holdalls.
But, despite the name, we've found that most holdalls don't quite do just that, and most trips have seen us laden with an extra tote bag or two here plus a backpack there, necessitating not only endless trips back and forth to the car, but an inability to quickly lay hands on anything on arrival.
While our packing skills could perhaps be perfected, a bag that truly holds all would go some way to lightening the load. And thanks to the new Cargo Range from Bennett Winch a capacious bag needn't be cumbersome.
Designed to adapt to the demands of family travel, the Cargo Range is perfect for road trips, and as you'd expect from the masters of luxury luggage, every detail has been considered.
A heavy duty holdall, The Cargo is available in three sizes: The Small 50L, The Medium 85L and The Large 125L. Each is made in the UK from 600 denier nylon and packs flat when empty ensuring you don't have to worry about where to stash it when not in use.
While leather bags might seem the last word in luxury, by opting for waterproof nylon, the Bennett Winch team has managed to create a durable holdall that's impressively lightweight: The Large weighs in at an impressive 1.2KG when empty, The Small just 900 grams.
A removable waterproof pouch can be used to keep damp clothes, laundry or even valuables separate, while an external storm pocket keeps smaller items to hand yet protected.
A waterproof lining adds further to its all-weather appeal, a necessity for a great British break.
As ever with Bennett Winch, construction is key: military grade webbing on handles, Tuscan leather trim and solid brass hardware are all covered by the brand's lifetime promise.
But perhaps most important is the sleek, understated design that will withstand the test of time and can be used by all the family, from this generation to the next.
