We’ve all been there: Jammed as much stuff as we could into our carry-on bag to avoid the baggage fee only to find out it’s too large to fit in the plane’s over head compartment.

With Balanzza’s TRUCO (Travel Utility Carry On) baggage system, though, that issue should be a thing of the past.  It’s a carry-on bag that can “reshape itself” by offering 2 modular parts that can be removed or added using Balanzza’s click-on system.  The main bag is designed to hold your clothing and other larger items, while a laptop bag/brief case snaps onto the front of it.  The third piece, which clips to the top of the main bag, is designed to hold smaller, more valuable items.  In the event that you board the plane and discover that the overhead compartment is too small, you simply remove any of the two smaller bags and slip them under the seat or next to the bag in the over head compartment. Brill.

The Balanzza Truco has a Worldwide Limited 5-year Lifetime Warranty and is available now for $199.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
