If you’ve ever attempted to store your suitcases in a tiny space, you’ll appreciate the new Road Warrior
line of luggage by Trunk & Trolley LLC. Designed for professional travelers, each suitcase in the line collapses easily with a simple tug, allowing you to store your suitcase underneath your bed, in a closet, or in any other tight space.
Working with Trunk & Trolley, product designer Mark Nordstrom developed a patent-pending system, Micro Pop, that allows you to collapse the suitcases with ease by pulling on red “ripcords
.” The innovative line was awarded first place at the 2012 Product Innovation Awards held by the Travel Goods Association in March.
Road Warrior currently offers seven different luggage models, ranging from a 20-inch carry-on suitcase to a 30-inch wheeled duffel, all of which collapse easily to less than 6 inches in depth individually. All suitcases are made with ballistic nylon fabric and, with the exception of the travel tote, feature sealed, ball-bearing wheels. Available colors include black, blue, and red. Prices range from $200 to $670.
