At the moment, Trunkster luggage is a Kickstarter project awaiting a sizeable capital injection by way of crowdfunding to get it off the ground and into shops, but it represents a radical rethink in luggage design.

Proposed as carry-on and suitcase versions, Trunkster bags feature zipperless entry, a removable battery with a USB port and a digital scale that weighs the case. They’re also GPS enabled, allowing the case to be tracked via any connected device and they come with a five-year warranty.

Construction is a polycarbonate skin over an aluminium frame, a proven formula for durability and light weight. Trunkster bags open like a rolltop desk, via a concertina door that slides down the entire face of the bag. A TSA-approved combination lock provides security. The handle extends from one side of the bag to the other, claimed to offer enhanced manoeuvreability.

All that techno-punch comes with a weight penalty. The carry-on has a projected weight of 3.6 kg. For the checked bag it’s 4.5 kg. That’s a bite out of the permitted weight especially in the case of the 7 kg that is the common maximum carry-on weight.

The concept for the Trunkster comes from the real-world experience of two passionate travellers, born of frustration with existing designs. The aim is to build “a well-crafted suitcase that prioritises utility and versatility in a minimalist style.” If the Trunkster becomes a reality, expect to see at least some of its features copied by major players in the game.
