A Note From Our CEO
To our Zero Halliburton Family:
Our thoughts are profoundly with those who have been affected by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
With more than 80 years in the travel business and too many miles to count, we have certainly weathered our fair share of storms. In this case, with the uncertainty and rapidly evolving conditions of COVID-19, we are operating like so many other businesses – being extremely fluid in our decision-making, while ensuring that the health and safety of our customers and employees remains paramount. So, what does this mean for Zero Halliburton?
US Retail Stores
As of 9 am EDT on Monday, March 16, 2020, we have decided to temporarily close our Flagship Madison Avenue showroom in Manhattan. Our shop at the Roosevelt Field Mall in Long Island, NY and our outlet store in Clarksburg, MD remain open as of this time, but with reduced hours.
We will continue to monitor the situation and make additional decisions regarding store operating hours based on all available information and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization and local public health and governmental agencies to determine when it makes sense to reopen. We will communicate any changes directly as well as regularly update our web site at www.zerohalliburton.com.
Our distribution center is currently up and running and we are fulfilling orders on time. We will communicate any changes directly as well as update the site with information accordingly. And speaking of updates, our spring collection has arrived - and even if you’re not ready to purchase a travel case, just looking at the new colors will bring a smile to your face.
In Pursuit of a Purpose
It has never been our nature to stand idly by. Like you, persistence and striving for something better is part of Zero Halliburton’s DNA. As such, we are currently investigating various philanthropic and research opportunities to help support those in need as well as speed the process of prevention measures and cures for infectious disease. As we solidify our plans, we will share these resources with you and send regular updates of our progress. Additionally, we will work hard to share less promotional, and instead more thoughtful, content with you designed to bring a bit of joyful distraction back into all our lives.
Again, the health and safety of our customers and employees is and always will be our top priority, and we will continue to take whatever steps that may be necessary to ensure a healthy community.
We can’t thank you enough for being part of the Zero Halliburton family and look forward to traveling with you again in the very near future.
In Good Health,
President and CEO
ZERO HALLIBURTON REINVENTS ITS LEGENDARY DESIGN FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF INDIVIDUALISTS
An American Icon is Reborn. Exceptional Innovation Sets a New Standard in Customized Travel Case Design
Inspired by more than 80 years of celebrated journeys and generations of fearless pioneers, American travel brand Zero Halliburton today announced a bold modernization of its seminal product design setting a new course for innovation in premium travel cases.
"Innovation, intention and boundary-pushing are inherent parts of Zero Halliburton DNA. These attributes drove us to break our own mold and reinvent the brand for the next generation of individualists,” said Tom Nelson, Zero Halliburton Global President and CEO. “Based on what we saw in the market, we made it a priority to create a design framework in which every detail was considered. This enabled us to develop collections that are intelligently crafted with strength, beauty and protection. Whether it’s the new Pursuit Aluminum Collection, Edge Lightweight Collection or the soft-sided Journal Collection, our focus on producing an elevated product is evident."
To make its vision a reality, the brand tapped award-winning Brooklyn-based product design consultancy PENSA. Together, they spent more than two years creating, developing and testing – with a singular mission to build new collections of luxury travel cases and accessories that are as stunning as they are strong - with functionality that truly puts the needs of astute travelers first. The result is a new construct of case design with patent-pending structural features and distinctive customization of virtually every component.
"As industrial designers, we saw a real opportunity to bring a fresh point of view to Zero Halliburton,” said Mark Prommel, Partner and Design Director at PENSA. We approached the process as engineers, travelers and observers of human nature, and from that experience, we were able to reimagine everything - from the wheels to the locks and even the packing system - and ultimately designed each individual element to create truly special and extremely functional cases."
ZH Concave Edging™
The patent-pending ZH Concave Edging™ is the architecture that serves as the foundation of the brand’s striking new design language. Fusing sculpture with stability, four deep-set channels are secured with a custom Y-shaped corner cap that runs all the way from the corners back to the center of the case to mitigate the potential for severe damage more effectively than typical convex-based travel cases.
Performance and convenience are at the heart of the patent-pending ZH Chassis™, a clever support feature engineered to ensure impressive ground clearance and enhance the brand’s specially-made wheel system. Marrying form with function, the ZH Chassis™ is fashioned with a custom-made Scalloped Grip Handle enabling the travel case to be easily lifted into an overhead compartment or out of a car trunk.
ZH Custom Design Elements
Along with the exclusive components that embody the newly reimagined collections, the new Zero Halliburton cases are almost completely customized from top to bottom and feature a modern take on Halliburton’s signature double rib design.
Utilizing a concave interpretation of the double-ribbing, the exterior of the bold Pursuit Aluminum Collection cases is formed with a textured brushed aluminum exterior that balances durability with style by minimizing the appearance of vertical scratches. The Edge Lightweight cases are sculpted from matte polycarbonate in classic and seasonal colors.
The collections are also designed with a bespoke pull handle curved in an elegant cushion-cut shape for an ergonomic palm fit. Richly colored and polished to a high-gloss, the handles on the Pursuit Aluminum Collection models were inspired by the cellulose handles used in the brand’s mid-century cases and complement the color of each respective case. The curved handles on Edge Collection cases are crafted from a high-strength polymer composite with a soft-touch feel reminiscent of a luxury sport watch strap. The handle shape is reinterpreted in coated leather in the sumptuous Journal Collection of bags and backpacks.
Custom-made latches, logo badges, interiors and monogram-ready ID Tag among other specialized features take the new Zero Halliburton design to an advanced level rarely achieved in the market.
The new collections from Zero Halliburton include:
- Pursuit Aluminum Collection – Travel and attaché cases featuring brushed aluminum, ZH Concave Edging™ and ZH Chassis™ (luggage only)
- Edge Lightweight Collection – Travel and attaché cases rendered in a high-tech polycarbonate featuring ZH Concave Edging™ and ZH Chassis™ (luggage only)
- The Journal Collection – An exceptional selection of lightweight structured bags made of high-quality nylon tricot reinforced by polyester twill backing
- ZH Packing System – Modular organization designed to maximize packing space and protect personal belongings
The products are available in a variety of colors and sizes. They are available at Zero Halliburton retail stores or online at www.zerohalliburton.com.
"Nothing is superfluous,” added Nelson. “Zero Halliburton’s new icons are purposefully made to propel our customers forward and support them in their journey of persistence."

From the unique accommodations required of a lunar sample case, to the special tools used to comb through the moon’s surface, “Precious Cargo” offers a glimpse of the lesser known packing details of humankind’s most profound trip. In celebration of the Apollo 11 50th anniversary, new episodes will be introduced at zerohalliburton.com throughout June and July.
"In 1969, NASA promised the world the moon - and we carried it back", added Nelson.
