There’s only so much space inside an airline-approved carry-on, right? Wrong.
Although its dimensions are airline-friendly, the Genius Pack G4 Carry-On Spinner Case manages to create more room for your things and works like a brilliant personal assistant to efficiently organize everything you need.
Magic? Kind of. This well-crafted luggage does the thinking for you, with labeled compartments for essentials like socks, underwear, chargers and more. It also has a built-in Packing Checklist— simple but thorough— that covers clothing, toiletries, tech, and travel items (Passport! Itinerary!).
Design-wise, it’s as if Genius Pack engineers have been following us around, listening to us lose it at the airport. There’s a built-in spot for a small umbrella, a water bottle compartment — even a pull-out bungee to strap your jacket to the top of your bag while you’re cruising the terminal deciding between Cinnabon and a banana.
Dirty laundry has never been so fun
That’s all very well and good, you say, but somehow packing for the trip home is a whole lot more chaotic than prepping for the way there, right? Genius Pack has thought of this. And one of its most impressive functions has got you covered: A laundry compression feature that takes the air out of dirty clothes with the press of a button, reducing their bulk by up to 50 percent.
Dirty stuff is in its own sealed laundry bag that zips right out when you get home, so you can take it straight to the basement and toss those clothes in the wash without ever having to worry about them intermingling with the nice new pieces you bought while away. (Vacation shopping is the best shopping!)
A pleasure to drive
Frequent travelers know none of the above makes a difference if a carry-on does not have a smooth ride. The Genius Pack G4 Carry-On Spinner Case delivers, gliding through the airport on high-quality 360-degree rotation wheels.
The handle is sturdy and substantial, with multiple lock positions — so it’s ergonomic for all heights — with a memory foam grip that will keep you comfy even when speed-walking to that gate change.
And if you still need more space? The exterior zipper lets your Genius Pack expand by 25 percent, while remaining within the approved carry-on dimensions.
The bottom line
This suitcase’s quality and cleverness will make every trip a little less hectic. It normally retails for $298. But right now you can get your own Genius Pack G4 in one of five color options for as low as $179 (that’s almost 40 percent off). A small investment to make that upcoming trip — and all your future travel —smoother, sweeter and more enjoyable.
