Samsonite Micro Suitcase ScooterThe perfect hybrid for traveling.
Samsonite Micro Suitcase Scooter is the carry-on luggage every frequent flyer should have, allowing you to skate to your gate in half the time it takes walking.
Some prefer hard case baggage; many claim that fixed wheels maximize space, while others prefer the comfort of having spinning wheels… What there´s no doubt about is that when it comes to suitcases, especially cabin luggage, more often than not a heated debate arises amongst usual travellers.
Imagine a waiting room at a random airport, where Mr Samsonite —always trying to improve his century old suitcase company— and Mr Micro Mobility —expert on scooters— reflect on the matter. “I need to come up with a solution”, says one. “I’ll help you out”, replies the other. Although this is obviously fiction, something like that might have happened, because what other way to explain the Samsonite Micro Suitcase Scooter?
After three years of intense collaboration, Samsonite and Micro Mobility presented a carry-on bag with built-in mobility, kind of like a “scootcase” if you will. The suitcase part holds up to 26 litres of content, and has three separate compartments, including a padded laptop bag. When the scooter board is up, the suitcase functions like every other two-wheeled bag, fitting in the overhead compartment of most jetliners and totally security-checkpoint compliant.
The novelty in this case can only be appreciated when the board, which contains a third wheel, is lowered and locked into position; that’s when this particular piece of luggage morphs into a scooter. The handlebar is used for steering and is based on the principle of weight transfer. Put one foot on the board, push off on the ground with the other foot and zip around the airport, there is hardly a better way to kill some time before your flight and you’ll surely have more fun than simply sitting down!
Although the debate is likely to continue, if you belong to the non-conformist kind, tired of dragging the suitcase around the airport, get yourself a Samsonite Micro Suitcase Scooter and travel with a piece of luggage that actually moves you!
