Andiamo’s name comes from the literal translation of the Italian phrase “let’s go!” Andiamo Luggage was founded in 1974, and has a lengthy reputation for producing exceptional quality luggage. Today’s Andiamo is an American company famous for its lengthy history of making exceptional luggage. The company focuses on functionality and construction, and combines them with high-quality materials, excellent craftsmanship, and state of the art technological advances.
Andiamo’s logo is “Engineered to take on the World” and they seem to live up to that credo by building bags that are both lightweight and extremely durable, while also being known for their high-grade refinements and luxurious look and feel. Andiamo makes two main lines of Andiamo luggage: the Bravo Collection and the Valoroso Collection. The Bravo Collection is great for those consumers who want the best combination of value and quality. It is a classic ballistic nylon line, with superior durability and functionality, a modern look and old world craftsmanship. The line has a wide assortment of styles to fit the needs of any traveler, with features you’d find in more expensive luggage.
Bravo is available in black, mocha, and plum. The Valoroso Collection combines high-end, luxurious bags with a “tough-as-nails” construction. Made with a four-strand, 1050 Denier, air-texturized ballistic material, it also has a sturdy urethane rubber water and moisture barrier coating. This construction makes the luggage durable and lightweight, and the old world craftsmanship offers a premium fit and finish.
Valaroso offers an impressive collection that will meet the needs of the most demanding travelers. Valaroso is available in black or steel. Andiamo luggage comes in different forms, including business cases, wheeled duffels, upright wheeled Pullmans, garment bags, and accessories. Here are some specifics on pieces in both the Valaroso and Bravo lines:
The five inch accessory tote is useful for the traveler’s toiletry needs for a short trip, or for daily use on a longer trip. It is completely lined and shaped like an arc, making it different from most Valoroso bags, but also practical and of good design and capacity.
22″ Packing Satchel
This is a nice carryon sized Andiamo luggage satchel that is both simple and very functional, but of superb quality and a great travel partner. It features lots of compartments and pockets in the fully lined interior for shoes, toiletries, or bottles. The exterior is handcrafted using the finest materials: Armor Plate Ballistic, heavy duty zippers, unbreakable hardware, and a slot on the back to slide it onto the handle of any wheeled luggage.
24″ Wheeled Cargo Duffel
This wheeled Cargo Duffel is extremely lightweight, due to the super lightweight full frame construction that reinforces the base and the walls. This duffel is a relatively large size, with ample room for packing all that’s needed for casual or vacation travel. It has leather trim and monogramming, and two large pockets on the outside with curved zippers for easy access.
25″ Four Pocket Duffel
This 25 inch four pocket duffel is not wheeled, but its light weight ensures that it’s easy to use and to carry. Constructed of the extremely durable 1050 Denier ballistic nylon, it is stain and water resistant and has a high quality and modern look. There are dual web style carry handles with a comfort fastener, leather trim and leather monogramming. With a large front pocket and two additional pockets, the main compartment holds 75% of the capacity and also has a large C-shaped zipper for easy packing.
22in Wheeled Ultra-Lite Pullman
This 22 inch Andiamo luggage has a couple of excellent features: first is the fact that it is extremely lightweight while still being very durable, and second is the one to two suit capacity garment sleeve in a separate suiter compartment under the main lid, unheard of in most lightweight bags. It has push button locking handles, top and bottom carry straps, inline skate wheels, and molded corner guards.
18″ Six Pocket Shoulder Tote
The six pocket Andiamo luggage or shoulder tote is made of highly refined stain and water resistant fabric for beauty and durability. With an interior capacity of 12 inches by 18 inches by 7 inches, front pockets with zipper closures and rear open pouch pocket, it offers a lot of storage capacity. It also has a zippered mesh pocket inside with ten separate pocket features like utility pockets, checkbook pocket, and pen pockets. A padded shoulder strap and universal “handle jockey” feature to attach it to wheeled luggage make it easy to maneuver with it.
Two Compartment Wheeled Brief
This brief is made especially for travelers who need to take along their laptop computer. Equipped with Andiamo’s best wheels, it is easy to maneuver wherever you need to, and has lots of pockets for help with organization. It’s also lightweight and easily hand carried and features an adjustable and removable computer sleeve. The outside pockets are magnetic closures and the top has a zippered opening.
Wheeled, Bi-fold Garment Bag
The bi-fold garment bag can allow travelers to take along enough clothes for five to seven days of business travel, and take them from the case just as if they were coming out of their home closet.
With the unique, semi-framed “soft envelop” design, it provides a lighter weight and more packing capacity than fully framed bags. It also has a large, two inch deep front compartment for packing flat and folded clothing, and mesh wings to keep things in place, and flat pockets internally, as well as three large face pockets on the rear.
Top carry strap, zippered shoe and laundry pockets, and a full sized toiletry kit are included. The garment bag has 5200 cubic inches of capacity, and measures 23 inches wide by 12 inches deep and 22 inches high when standing and closed. It has a lifetime, bumper to bumper warranty, and Andiamo even will pay for shipping.
Beauty Case Tote Bag
The Andiamo Bravo Beauty Case is made of the highest quality ballistic nylon for years of use. It features extra-heavy duty materials, a heavy duty zipper, leather handle and trim, outside zippered pocket, shoulder strap, leather handle and trim, and rear slot pocket made to slide over the handle of a wheeled bag. At just 2.7 pounds, the dimensions of the beauty case are 15.5 inches by 10 inches by 8 inches.
