When I look for a new suitcase, I thought my needs were simple until I was introduced to “The Barracuda.”
The carry-on suitcase is similar to a friend that cannot do enough to help you, who goes out of his or her way to deliver before you even ask. The suitcase acts as your own personal concierge anticipating your every need.
When I received it, it was collapsed down to five inches deep, making it so easy for storage. You can store it in the attractive cloth storage case provided, hang it by the hanger closet or tuck it under your bed. If you are lucky enough to have two, one can hang underneath the other.
Born in a Silicon Valley garage, crowd-funded on Kickstarter and now available at fine retailers worldwide. The company spent over a year perfecting their first product, the Barracuda Carry-on bag, and it shows! Barracuda is a premium travel and lifestyle brand that offers the perfect blend of style, technology and fun.
If you think I exaggerate, I’m not. Imagine:
- a 360-degree ergonomic pivoting handle, something I have never seen before with a suitcase
- open the zipper at the back of the handle, and unfold the tray to pop your laptop onto. In a packed airport, an extra shelf space is always welcome. Don’t need to work, spread out your lunch and pop your coffee into one of the two cup holders
- cramming some work in at the airport and low battery, undo the battery pack already charged and included) and charge your laptop or your phone while you wait to board. The USB chargers charge most phones 5x over, so you never need to run low again
- cloth shoe bags and cloth laundry bag
- digital scales with strap to make weighing the case easier than those with the hooks
- a tracking device can be ordered separately that you sync with your smart phone, place it in your suitcase, and if you arrive, but your case doesn’t, it will be a snap to find out where it’s gone
On top of all of the perks listed, it’s the most attractive suitcase I have ever seen, and looks so fabulous, it will be the envy of all the other suitcases being dragged through airports.
