To better your traveling experience, Southern California based ECBC has announced a forthcoming collection of rolling garment, back-pack and duffle bags that are designed to get you quicker through security and take advantage of today’s technology.
All of the bags feature the FastPass system, are TSA compliant and designed to lie flat when unzipped when going through the security scanners. They can all hold up to a 15” laptop and have specifically designed pockets for an iPad, iPad mini and their various adapters. What’s cool is that each one will be equipped with a portable recharging unit that can charge your small electronic devices when you don’t have access to a power outlet.
The Sparrow Rolling Garment Bag Carry On features a centre compartment with a fold out garment section, which allows you to organize your business attire keeping them wrinkle free by leaving them on their hangers. It measures less than 22”, so it would be ideal for quick overnight trips.
The Falcon Rolling Duffels offer the high capacity convenience of a duffle bag, made from an abrasion and tear resistant nylon and water repellent coating. It’s molded on the bottom and has impact resistant skid plates to protect your contents. It also features 2” expandability for the little extras you have on your return home. There’s a 22” carry-on as well as 26” and 30” models.
Finally, the Pegasus Rolling Backpack Carry On offers dual functionality whether you want to carry it or roll it. Its main compartment opens up, horizontally just like regular luggage, to make it easier to nicely pack your items. It comes with a fully adjustable and padded hide-away shoulder strap system.
It should be interesting to see what kind of charging system these incorporate, how well they perform and how secure they are. Full details from ECBC are not yet available. These bags are shipping in now and priced from $349-$399. (Updated)
