Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire Bags Keep The Merch Fever Alive

star-wars-bags-4

Perhaps even more impressive than the visual and auditory marvels that await us in the upcoming Star Wars sequel is the unstoppable train of merchandising opportunities that’s currently rolling through the marketplace. Take the above travel bags as an example. They’re actually kind of cool, featuring a hook that lets you hang them up on a hotel door somewhere and easily access your things. There’s one for the Galactic Empire, and another for the Rebel Alliance. They’re both neat, and cost next to nothing at $35, but you’ll have to wait until January 2015 to get your hands on them.

FUGU Carry-On Suitcase Expands Into Full Size Baggage

fugu luggage

Whether you’re leaving for two weeks or just a couple of days, the FUGU Luggage has you covered. Featuring a set of inflatable air bladders and an expanding midsection, the suitcase goes from carry-on size, to full check in size in just a few seconds. When collapsed, the bag meets maximum carry-on sizes and while expanded, it reaches maximum check-in size as well. That’s 13.5″ by 21.5″ by either 9″ collapsed or a massive 27″ expanded. When at full size the bag supports not only its own weight, but also the strains and pressures of being stuffed in a cargo compartment with lots of other heavy bags. It does this through the help of an expanding ABS plastic reinforcement structure.

There’s even a shelving system that lets you organize your stuff and keep everything neat and tidy. “The shelves enable the suitcase to double as a storage unit, eliminating the need to unpack into a hotel closet and then later repack.” When opened, FUGU can even serve as a table.

It’s $219 to get in on the action, with an expected delivery date of August 2015.

Leggage Laptop Case Gives You A Foot Massage On Those Long Flights

Leggage-laptop-case-2

The only thing more unpleasant about flying than having the seat in front of you jammed into your knees, is not being able to get back into your shoes at the end of a long flight because they swelled up so darn much. They say you should get up and walk around, but it’s not always possible to move that monolith next to you, snoring his day away. The Leggage laptop case features ribbed and angled hard surfaces that give you up to 9 different massaging positions. Just place your case on the floor and rub your feet all over it, angling them up and down and promoting circulation. Then stand right back up like you haven’t just been confined to a flying box of sardines for 12 hours. You can fit laptops up to 15.6 inches inside the case, and only comes in black. It’s $80.

Yeti Hopper Cooler Keeps Your Drinks Cold For Days

yeti-cooler-3

It seems the time is ripe for coolers to receive an update. After the furore caused by last week’s announcement of the Coolest Cooler, it’s only fitting to see news about yet another kind of innovative drink-chiling container. The Yeti Hopper Cooler is a waterproof bag with a 1 inch insulation throughout. It holds a massive 5.2 gallons of anything, which in theory is supposed to be a healthy mixture of loose ice and beverages. The zipper is watertight, which means you can toss it around and not worry about contents spilling out. And the claims are that the insulation is efficient enough to keep things cold for days. Whether that’s true or a marketing stretch on the word “days”, we don’t know. We can tell you that it’ll be available in October for $300, which is a hefty price to pay for something like this. Still, we haven’t come across many shoulder-mounted 5.2 gallon cooler bags, so you might be limited in your options if this is something you really want.

New Fast Food Bag Tech: Genius? Or Overkill?

fast-food-bag-tech

There’s something to be said about the above concept, we’re just not sure what. In case the animation doesn’t play or you’re unable to see it, you’re looking at a piece of cardboard with strategically cut holes that allow you to carry a burger, fries and a drink in one hand. Now, some of you are going to ask “what’s wrong with a regular bag?” Or, “how would this work if you try to put it down on a car seat?” We hear you, but hey, any way you slice it, the fact remains that with this method, you retain the use of one hand. Is it better than what we have now? We suppose it depends on your needs, but having more options is generally a good thing and we’d be delighted to see this being used alongside regular bags. Unfortunately, we don’t have any more info than what you see so we can’t tell you if there are any plans to ever put this into circulation. Heck, maybe it already is?

Folding Backpack Scooter

Foldable Backpack Scooter

We talked about a carry on luggage with a fold-out scooter last February, and you guys thought it was pretty neat. But that one was almost $400, while the Glyde Gear FLY is about one fifth that much, and seems to do much the same thing. It’s got a 1550 cu in / 25.4L capacity, and is made from 600 Denier Polyester, whatever that means. The fold out scooter can carry a man weighing up to 200lbs, and the entire thing should fairly easily serve as a carry on in any plane. Granted, it’s not made by Samsonite and doesn’t look as slick as the $400 option, but $90 to have the ability to scoot around an airport, between gates? That’s well worth it, in our opinion.

The Anti-Theft Lunch Bags

Heard a pretty funny joke the other day.

“There’s this weird new trend at the office. People are naming their lunches. Today I had a sandwich named Kevin.”

It’s funny because it’s true; you leave your food in the fridge at your own risk. Bag your sandwiches in these anti-theft bags that make it look like your stuff is mouldy, and there’s a bigger chance the thieves will just skip over it.

It’s $8 for 25, but they’re currently sold-out.
