2015 AWARD WINNERS

The passengers have spoken the winners are... The judges were presented with an unenviable challenge this year as they tried to whittle down the entries to just four shortlisted bags in each category. The standard this year was higher than ever, and the judging process saw 48 regular travellers split into focus groups appropriate to the categories they were being asked to judge. From these four shortlisted entries, the judging panels discussed, and commented as to which bag was worthy of the coveted gold seal of approval. For your interest, and delight, we have a showcase of the premium winning bags, alongside some of the judge’s comments.
