The Marlon Carry-On Suitcase Actually Compresses to Just 9 Inches

The Marlon Carry-On Suitcase Actually Compresses to Just 9 Inches

Here at Gadget Flow, we see a lot of gadgets, devices, and tools designed to make our lives easier, especially for travel. The products we see are rich with innovation and striking design but often don’t make our travels any easier bur rather more entertaining. But Marlon, the connected compression carry-on, has caught my eye for all the right reasons. Dubbed the world’s most spacious carry-on, Marlon has been superbly designed around its practical and much-needed features. The final result is a bag that you’ll take on every single trip near or far. The one incredible feature that sets Marlon apart is the compression. This technology enables you to fill the entire suitcase with everything you need and then squeeze it down to an appropriate carry-on size of just 9 inches. It doesn’t require you to sit on top as you break the zipper. Instead, Marlon employs a proprietary gradient lever and a banded grip mechanism. Simply press the button and push down on the top of the case to compress and secure the size with the zippers.

In addition to giving you up to 35% more space than other carry-on bags, Marlon is also outfitted with technology to keep the modern traveller connected. In the back is a concealed and removable rechargeable 104000mAh battery. With it, and its two USB ports, you can top up all of your devices while en route to your destination.

Inside the main compartment is space for literally anything you need from multiple pairs of shoes to your jacket. The cover of Marlon is divided into two mesh pockets for your smaller items such as socks and underwear. Behind these pockets is yet another compartment for storing dresses, suits, or even to keep your dirty clothes separate.

Most conveniently, the exterior pocket on the front provides padded protection for your laptop and tablet. Yet another smaller pocket is also located on the front and ideal for stashing you smartphone, passport, keys, or tickets for easy access.

Supporting it all are two large wheels for added stability as well as premium materials throughout. Weather-proofed, triple coated ballistic nylon lines the interior while the handle features a soft touch ergonomic grip.

Live on Kickstarter until August 27th, the Marlon team have raised an impressive $73k to smash their goal. You can reserve your Marlon carry-on bag for only $275.

Marlon fixes a lot of travel problems and woes. What does it solve for you?
