As a traveller, you probably has no choice but to have two separate bags for check-in and carry-on. Then before every trip, you have to choose one from them or have both. Now here’s the thought. What if you could have a bag that grows and shrinks in size to fit both the needs?
Maybe not sounds that sexy, but this design can actually become real useful. The XTEND’s bag literally shrinks vertically in size to meet carry-on dimension requirements, and then expands (when you need to) for when you want a large bag to check-in. Using a collapsible inner ‘belt’ or zone, XTEND can make the bag up to 40% larger!
Besides the super useful shape-shifting abilities, it also includes 2 concealed laptop hatches (one for 13″ and another for 15″ laptops), a separate compartment for shoes/magazines/jackets and even an in-built power strip featuring 2 USB + 1 MicroUSB sockets with a generous 20,000 mAh battery (which is powerful enough to charge not just your phones and tablets, but even your laptop).
