Last month, the buying team at Mori Luggage & Gifts attended the annual Travel Goods Show in Las Vegas, the largest exhibition of travel and leather goods in the world. For three days, buyers walked the aisles seeking the hot new trends in luggage and travel gear.
“The Travel Goods Show allows us to meet with all of the leading manufacturers in our industry,” said John Mori, president of Mori Luggage & Gifts. “Now that the economy is picking up, more people are traveling both for business and pleasure. Our customers expect us to always have the newest items that make traveling easier.”
All of the items mentioned will be available at Mori Luggage & Gifts stores and online at http://www.moriluggage.com.

Available in a variety of colors and accommodates waist sizes from 24” – 40”+. $19.95 http://www.moriluggage.com/Prod-19-1-4462/SPIbelt_-_personal_item_belt.htm
Simply put, GoGirl is the way to stand up to crowded, disgusting, distant or non-existent bathrooms while traveling. It’s a female urination device (sometimes called a FUD) that allows you to urinate while standing up. It’s neat. It’s discreet. While the concept may be new to Americans, European women have used female urination devices for years. GoGirl is made with flexible, medical grade silicone. Dispose of it after use or clean and reuse as you like. The patented splash guard eliminates messing and spilling. $9.95 http://www.moriluggage.com/Prod-19-1-4467/GoGirl.htm
