I have been hunting new carry-on luggage since I started my new job in November. I want a piece of rolling luggage but at the same time, I don’t have to have to deal with things like dragging it up stairs. I was recently approached by Naisha Joseph about her new piece of luggage called TraxPack. Naisha and her good friend Richard Braddock have developed a new piece of luggage to revolutionised the luggage industry. TraxPack removes the struggle of dragging wheeled luggage up stairs. TraxPack’s amazing new system treats your luggage like a tank and has a handle that is vertical and tilted. The handle is vertical when on flat ground but it is tilted while going up the stairs.
It doesn’t just stop at going up the stairs. It makes it easy to go down the stairs as well. (Anyone thinking that stair surfing luggage is going to be a thing?)
The titled handle makes it easy to maneuver around town and keep your luggage in sight instead of dragging it behind you.
The TraxPack is pack full of smart extras that make packing a breeze.
The handle has a built-in scale to help with packing. No more guessing and hoping that your luggage is under the weight limit at the counter. The handle lets you know just how much more you can pack.
Dual battery charger
The bag has a dual battery charger hidden in it. It allows you to charge your phone on the go without having to worry about the battery charger migrating to the bottom of the bag.
Sick of holding your tablet while reading at the airport? The TraxPack has a built in stand for holding the tablet while you wait for that plane or train.
Proximity sensor and BPS
Forget about misplacing your luggage ever again. The TraxPack comes with its own GPS or BPS – Baggage Positioning System – that allows you to track its precise whereabouts, wherever in the world that may be. That can also be useful when you’re waiting at the luggage carousel at your arrival airport – you don’t need to crowd around like everyone else, as you’ll know when your bag is about to emerge.
All these features are best demonstrated by a video so head for the Kickstarter page to see the case in action.
