Samsonite Xylem Business Case
In The World is not Enough (1999) and Die Another Day (2002), Samsonite travel equipment is featured throughout the film, including cases from its Xylem, Streamline and Spark product lines.
In The World is not Enough (1999) Bond uses a Samsonite case at the Swiss banker's office in Bilbao. This case was designed specifically for the movie, but it is very similar to Samsonite's aluminum 800 series.
The Samsonite Xylem Scion aluminium business case plays a key role in the opening sequence of Die Another Day (2002). In the beginning of the film, Bond meets Zao in Korea. Bond arrives by helicopter, carrying the Samsonite Xylem Business Case, filled with diamonds. Apparently, a transaction has been prepared. Zao's men check the contents of the case.
