The Perfect Carryon
Always in search of the ultimate carryon suitcase, I sifted through dozens of luggage review sites, stumbling upon the inventive – albeit a bit gimmicky – Genius Pack Pro. It actually has a segregated (and removable) laundry pouch with an integrated air valve to vacuum pack your dirty clothes! This is the genius part. Other really good parts include: labelled compartments; a place for mobile phone/electronics charging; a spot for a mini loud speaker for tunes; a jacket strap for keeping your jacket in place while you roam the concourse; a pop-out umbrella; a water-bottle pocket; a retractable ID card and more.
It has the industry standard 22 x 14 x 9-inch carryon dimensions, plus an expander in case you’re checking it. More for the business traveller or the weekender, rather than those enjoying a week somewhere, but very cool. About USD$300 with shipping. Visit GeniusPack.com.
