Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9944460A1] A soft-sided luggage article (20) has a split-gusset component. The luggage article includes a lid gusset and a base gusset. A covering material (26, 28) is disposed over both the lid and base gusset, the lid and base gussets being joined by a zipper (30). One of the lid or base gussets includes an extension portion (40) or tongue which engages into a groove portion in the other of the lid or base gusset. In this way, unauthorized entry into the luggage article is resisted when the zipper is breached. A split-gusset, as described above, is also disclosed as well as a unique hinge for the luggage article.
