Samsonite OBAG Is The Monster Truck Of Suitcases

Samsonite OBAG Concept (Images courtesy Yanko Design)
By Andrew Liszewski

The addition of wheels to a suitcase is probably one of the greatest innovations in travel the world has ever seen, but even the largest of wheels used on modern luggage can easily be tripped up by curbs, stairs, or even snow. However, none of those obstacles would be a problem for the Samsonite OBAG concept designed by Rooz Mousavi. The entire suitcase is one giant wheel which not only makes it easy to steer and maneuver, but also allows it to be dragged up a flight of stairs without ever having to lift it off the ground. The handle can be collapsed like on any other suitcase making it easy to store, and while the OBAG features a set of easy to access compartments on either side, I can probably wear more clothing than this suitcase could actually hold. So while it’s a great idea with a nice design, I’ll probably just stick with my standard, tiny wheeled luggage.
