#4 Rollogo Escape S
Traveling for work presents major pain points. Exhibit A: waiting around in airports, searching for an outlet to keep a laptop and phone in service.
Presenting ESCAPE S by ROLLOGO – the world’s first luggage with a power generating wheel.
ESCAPE S by ROLLOGO is a modern carry-on suitcase that doubles as a self-charging mobile office. When the case’s wheels spin, they generate power that charges a detachable power bank that can charge two devices simultaneously. An accompanying app provides intel on battery level and links to luggage for tracking.
The original Escape launched last year, but Rollogo has upgraded it to make it better than ever, including new material that is 100% water and stain-resistant. The case is also incredibly kitted-out and includes a top surface designed to transform into a workspace, an easy access top compartment for all on-board essentials, a zippered compartment for electronics, a fold-over garment bag, and a hanging toiletry bag, seamlessly integrated into a compact design.
#5 Victorinox Lexicon Hardside Global Carry-on
The design is both understated and technical and has practical, innovative tweaks that are inspired by travelers and is an original design from an experienced company, not the typical rebadging of standard ODM/OEM designs typically favored by newer trendy luggage companies.
All of the suitcase’s hardware is recessed to avoid snags as well as damage from catching on corners and edges during handling.
Has a USB charging port that allows you to utilize your choice of any power bank, held in an internal pocket. The protective cover for the port also contains a SIM card tool, and a pen as well.
Security double-coil zippers prevent the typical zipper punctures and also the typical puncture-based intrusions by thieves.
The case is compact and sized to fit global carry-on specifications, even with stringent short-haul carriers within Europe. Many popular choices today do not conform to European carry-on limits and sizers and always run the chance of being moved to the hold and incurring an extra checked bag charge.
Additionally, while many cases avoid recessing their wheels (a practical benefit to all travelers) due to the additional overall manufacturing costs, this suitcase maximizes recessing, with the most recessing found on any carry-on today. This maximizes dimensional packing height of the case within size constraints, and also protects the wheels by minimizing exposure to shearing forces in handling that typically destroy wheels and their mounts on typical suitcases – which usually result in either expensive repairs or throwing away the entire suitcase.
Lastly, the case has an understated, classic design language, that will always be on-trend and will always coordinate.
