Barracuda

Collapsible Multi-Feature Suitcase

Travel Smart

Barracuda took the concept of smart luggage then ran with it.

From its 360-degree rotating handle to its fully collapsible body and built-in USB charger, this suitcase accounts for travel trouble you didn’t even know you had.

Folded down, it’s just four inches high and slips easily under your bed or in your closet. It expands
quickly into a robust, regular-sized carry-on that keeps you organized—laundry and shoe bags and mesh compartments keep clean and dirty items separate. And the included digital scale makes sure your bag stays under the weight limit.

When you’re ready to go, the loop and tighten strap helps secure the contents while the rotating handle lets you maneuver the bag without twisting your wrist.

At the terminal, pull your laptop out of the designated compartment and rest it on the slide-out tray to do some work. You can charge your phone while you wait, too.

Maker Boban Jose gathered a team of Silicon Valley engineers and industry experts to streamline the suitcase, from packing to boarding to storing. Their design attracted the attention of travelers everywhere—who proved, literally, that Barracude is a million dollar idea.

    What is the exterior made of? Are there any interior pockets or helps with organization? Hard to tell from video.

    Why didn't you put 4 wheels on it?

  • Alessandra
    Alessandra – Grommet Team
    1/20/2017 11:05 AM

    @Carolyn because of the unique nature of the swivel handle four wheels aren't necessary because you can roll it while holding the handle sideways or straight, typically with four-wheeled suitcases the handle is immobile and the wheels are mobile, whereas this bag does the opposite with the same functionality!

    Wondering how much space for interior (do you lose space due to handle/desk)?

  • Andrew
    Andrew – Grommet Team
    1/20/2017 11:14 AM

    @Joyce Thanks for your question! The packing capacity volume is 36L, and because the desk folds into the handle itself no extra space is lost for the desk feature.

    One of the first things I noticed was the two wheels instead of four. Great idea though ????

    Great idea! Is the front zippered flap the laptop compartment? If so, what size laptop will it accommodate? What size laptop will the folding tray hold?

  • Andrew

    Description of the device charger, how many watts is the charger, is it like a portable charger that is built in and is it removable

  • Alessandra
    Alessandra – Grommet Team
    1/20/2017 11:43 AM

    @Henry yes, the portable battery pack is removable from the bag itself. It includes a 10,000 mAh dual USB rechargeable lithium polymer battery pack that has a 2A power output.

  • Alessandra

    1/20/2017 11:46 AM

    @Henry to clarify that gives it enough capacity to charge most phones 5 times over. It comes with a micro-USB cable for recharging.

    I backed this when it was still prototyping (on another website!). I do really like it. My favorite feature is the fold-down table. No juggling my sandwich, tablet, etc., on my lap. So convenient! The swivel handle is very comfortable; important to me as someone with arthritis and hand/wrist disorders that can cause pain if strained. I hope I don't ever need to buy another bag again!

    @Darlene Great to hear this from you. I've been getting a lot of thumb pain and weakness lately and wondering if my travel habits/bags are part of the problem. You are making me think...

    @Bobbi

    Thank you so much for being a valued Grommet customer, and discovering the innovative Barracuda Collapsible 22” Carry-on Bag. For more information, details and specifications, please click on the “Buy” button and the Barracuda “Details” will be revealed. We are also excited to tell you the following:

    Tired of your current carry-on bag that does little else but sit there?  With Barracuda, never again juggle that laptop on your knees while reaching to the floor to pick up your drink, in the typical table-less airport waiting area.  And Barracuda forever ends the need to rush for an empty plug, to charge your smart phone or tablet. 

    The Halo Handle System™ features an ergonomic and distinctive 360°rotating handle. Turn heads not your wrist.  A push button allows the handle to be locked in one of 6 positions, taking all the weight out of your hand and stress off your elbow.

    Collapse your Barracuda in seconds and tuck it away under your bed in a sleek storage bag. Or hang it in your closet ready for your next trip. It’s right there for you. Our advanced two-wheel design makes this efficient collapsibility possible.

     

    Our Ingenious drop-down Laptop Tray unfolds in seconds, for a convenient shelf for a laptop, tablet, or secure place for your drink, in our cleverly-designed twin beverage holders.  In a packed airport, a little extra shelf space is always welcome. Patented Barracuda design elements make the Laptop Tray rigorous enough to securely hold up to a 7.7 lbs. laptop, when your Barracuda bag is packed normally for travel.  Our Design Team was smart to understand not to add needless weight to the bag, by over-building the Tray itself.  Instead they added our ingenious Barracuda beverage holders!

     

    As a recent Barracuda customer from Chicago said, “Wow, now I can finally relax at airports with my iPad playing news highlights, all the while charging both my iPad and iPhone at the same time, while I sit back and enjoy my tea!”  

     

     Thanks so much for your feedback and for being a valued customer of Barracuda.

    Team Barracuda

    With 2 wheels, can you go sideways down skinny airplane aisles?
