Scooting Luggage

For those who always wanted a scooter, but couldn't justify getting one (perhaps because the only people with it were under 12), here might be a great solution.  Not only does this carry your luggage, but it also allows you to scoot around the airport (or anywhere really) faster than you would to make that connecting flight!

Samsonite has always been known for making good luggage, but generally its sturdy and boxy.  This innovative design is a first, and you'll be the envy of everyone at the airport:

See a review from CNET here:
CNET Review:Samsonite luggage packs a micro scooter

Available here: for £250, and ships internationally, so you don't need to be in the U.K. to get it.

  • Samsonite hard shell travel case
  • Micro scooter
  • Weight: 5000g
  • Wheels: Front - 2 x 120mm / 87a
  • Bearings: Abec 5
  • Colour: Black & Silver
  • Rider max weight: 100kg
  • Max case capacity: 26L
  • Aircraft conformity: permitted as hand luggage

Useful or Useless? As a suitcase, there's obviously a lot of good choices out there, and while it can hold a decent amount does suffer from the added weight and smaller size because of the wheels. But as a scooter? I'd call this the most useful scooter ever.  If you fly a lot and find yourself running from gate to gate, or have long daily commutes, this is the one for you.
