Not Such a Tight Squeeze

Side Trips: Travel Tips, Trends and Tools

October 13, 2002|RENEE VOGEL

BMW's reissue of the classic MINI Cooper automobile is cool, but one drawback lurks for retro-but-now drivers who want to hit the road: There's not much room for luggage. Now Samsonite has designed a three-piece collection of MINI Travel Gear engineered to fit perfectly into the car's diminutive cargo hold. Equally important for the style-conscious, whether MINI owners or not, each bag reflects the car's distinctive look, with reflective piping, chrome-hubbed wheels and an orange button on the handle modeled after the MINI's turn signal.
