The Pullman suitcase is probably the biggest innovation the luggage industry has seen in the last 30 years. And you know what, I wouldn’t go anywhere without my Carry-on Pullman. It fits neatly in the overhead, holds almost a week’s worth of clothing (depending on the time of the year) and is tough as nails thanks to Samsonite quality. What it won’t do, though, is save me from long walks between terminals at Heathrow or other gigantically large airports.
The Micro Scooter Luggage – built in partnership with Samsonite – on the other hands is designed to fulfil that last remaining necessity, which of course I only now realize is a void that I has gone long unfulfilled. This piece of travel hardware is pretty self-explanatory; a scooter is built-in to the suitcase. The once simple Pullman handle now does double duty as a steering while, and the scooter folds neatly up allowing you to still store it in an overhead, or one can only hope. Unfortunately, it can only support a person up to 200-lbs or so, though that isn’t to say anyone larger couldn’t use it to store their laptop and a few outfits.
Word is you can grab one for about $400.
