Barracuda is a carry-on bag that is going to change the face of travel. The importance of standing out in the currently competitive market is why the design team created a one-of-a-kind suitcase that reflects all the needs and wants of today's active professionals.
The intent was to make travel time easier and more convenient. Currently, the San Francisco-based brand is raising funds via Kickstarter with initial shipments to start in November 2015.
Storing luggage has always been a pain. Regardless of where you live or the amount of storage you have, storing luggage is awkward. So, the Barracuda was designed with a collapsible feature. It can transform from its hard-sided state to a completely folded state in 10 seconds or less.
The second feature that sets the Barracuda apart is the built-in, height-adjustable tray. It is sturdy enough to set your laptop down, to keep the kids busy during a long layover at the airport and provide a workstation when traveling alone.
The Barracuda also has a new, revolutionary ergonomic handle, which creates an easy-to-use (and drag) function so your bag moves along with you without risking an injury. No longer a concern when you are running late and have to catch a flight, the bag will move quickly and easily.
One of the most frustrating parts of airline travel is the battery of the cell phone. Often, airports do not have charging stations and if they do, they are usually overcrowded or cost a good amount for a full charge. So, Barracuda was designed to alleviate this problem entirely with its built-in USB charger.
No need to crowd the baggage carousel anymore, because the Baracuda also has a Bluetooth Smart/Bluetooth Low Energy technology that allows for easy tracking and location of the bag. The app is compatible with both Android and iOS smartphones that support BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy).
Laptops are usually a necessity on business trips, but they can also be a hassle. Having to remove the laptop for security is cumbersome and difficult, but this will not be an issue when traveling with the Barracuda. The Barracuda has an easy-to-open flap that makes it simple to grab the items you need while traveling.
Besides the amazing features of the luggage, the Barracuda is strong enough to last a lifetime, even as a regular travel bag. Made from ballistic nylon and aircraft-grade aluminum, the bags are made to withstand the harsh weather associated with any type of travel.
