Fortis: Our new range goes live

This is our first major announcement for some time, but it is a big one. This week saw the official launch of five brand new i-stay bags, the Fortis range.

These bags are designed with the travelling executive in mind. A sleek and classy exterior encases a multitude of features within. As with our launch range, each bag is made of the highest quality nylon, with gunmetal fixtures and fittings, and all boast an extensive organiser section (with the addition of a detachable key fob) with huge amounts of storage space for your other essentials.

Every bag has a pocket specially tailored to fit a tablet of up to 12 inches in length, and all bar the tablet bag have another pocket for a laptop of up to 15.6 inches. Both of these pockets are lined with luxury burgundy ‘non-scratch’ fabric and each bag is fully padded throughout for maximum protection and comfort.

Speaking of comfort, our patented non-slip strap remains a key feature of course – with one exception. This range includes i-stay’s first trolley bag – with wheels designed to run ultra-smoothly – which we don’t recommend you carry on your shoulder! However, you can attach the laptop organiser/clamshell bags onto the telescopic handles using the retainer strap on the back.

i-stay Crosses the Pond

The i-stay brand continues to expand into new territories. We’ve recently inked a deal with a distributor which will see our products on sale – actually, like, in the flesh for sale – on the other side of the Atlantic.

So, for all you North American masses huddled together to keep each other’s bag straps on their shoulder, good news – you will soon be breathing free.

So, over on our Twitter we’re wondering where you might take your i-stay strap this year. As you can see from our website they’ve already turned up in some interesting places.

But we’re sure our collection isn’t even half-full (or even half-a-half-full, or even half-a-half-a-half-a-half… well, you get the idea). So, we’d like to hear where you’d take yours. In fact, as the i-stay can attach to camera bags as well as rucksacks, you might need more than one!

And when you get there, send us back a snap or two for our album. We promise we won’t bore you with a slideshow.
