Senior Product Developer Jesse Haller told us a story that most adventure travelers can probably relate to: “I used to have this old roller bag, and one of the wheels froze. Now, I don't get rid of things very easily, so I kept using it. I just literally dragged it—with one wheel skidding along the tile in the airport—for lots of trips. I used it like that for so long the seized wheel actually wore down flat. Yeah, I know, pretty funny, but I really do hate to throw things away. Anyway, one of these times, I’m running to catch a flight and the wheel unseizes! So, then the flat wheel was going, gugunk, gugunk, gugunk, all the way down the terminal. People could hear me coming! Super annoying, super embarrassing.”
Because “annoying” and “embarrassing” are traits one should never ascribe to luggage, we set out to create a collection of travel companions built to keep pace with any adventure, of any length, anywhere you go.
