If you’re anything like me, traveling is always a bit of a mess. I usually pack, unpack, and re-pack trying to find the perfect balance and weight for my luggage and carry on. I swap shoes to my carry on, then back to the luggage, and try to determine if I should keep my deodorant in my carry on in case the airline lose my luggage (again). In the end, I stuff my carry on chock full with loads of books, plus my Kindle, iPad, headphones, a sweater, neck pillow, and anything else I think I might possibly want for the plane ride, long or short. I never read all those books or even need my headphones in some cases yet my carry on has done nothing but weigh me down as I sprint through the airport to catch my connecting flight. If only I’d had Jurni…
Jurni is a super strong carry on bag designed for anyone from teenagers to frequent fliers. It solves many problems that travellers face on every journey and you can even sit on it when you need a rest. And, not only can it handle over-packed items such as all my books, it neatly stores them and is a breeze to wheel around. It’s the most convenient luggage ever.
From the outside, Jurni looks like a traditional rolling suitcase with a wide telescopic handle. But, once you open the main compartment, you’ll soon realise just how great it is. Inside the hard plastic shell exterior is an adjustable and removable hard shelf. It can be used to divide your shoes from your clothing or even be placed towards the top of the bag and serve as a secret compartment. On top is a portable plastic pod that has a splash-proof seal. Also made with durable plastic, you can keep your essentials such as cash, your passport, headphones, and even tablet within easy reach yet safe. Even better, the pod is totally secure yet can be popped off from the case and taken with you.
Because it’s made with the best materials, Jurni is strong and durable enough for you to sit on it while you wait for your luggage, a taxi, or if you just fancy a break from the long security line. You can even take advantage of the custom designed wheels and glide through all the lines you encounter all while seated. The wheels offer a smooth journey, whether you’re pushing, pulling, or sitting, and are much like the ones you’d find on a skateboard.
Jurni was built to last forever. Its modular design and included spare parts mean you can swap out the wheels, telescopic handle, or any other part of the bag if it gets worn out. Additionally, this allows for the company to offer upgrades that you can build right into the bag. The case can handle up to 220 pounds of sitting weight while the main compartment has a capacity of 23 liters and the portable pod 2 liters. Coming in at only 7.3 pounds, you have your choice of red, blue, or pink accents on this otherwise black bag.
Currently smashing their $30k goal on Indiegogo with over $118k in funding, Jurni is available for pre-order for just $99. It will retail for about $130 when the campaign ends in early January. The company plan to deliver Jurni in February.
