The Zuca Pro ($285) is so revolutionary, it's hard to call it a suitcase. Built within a lightweight anodized aluminum exoskeleton, the Zuca Pro packs in every feature a hardcore traveller could want. The overhead-friendly bag features a built-in seat (rated to support 300 pounds), a 41-inch telescoping handle, 4-inch polyurethane wheels (some of the smoothest and most silent we've ever tested), and uses 5 drawer-like, color-coded packing pouches that keep you organized and fitting more than ever before. The Zuca Pro also comes with a TSA-approved toiletry bag, a removable water resistant insert bag, and a ballistic nylon travel cover.
Going rafting? Are you a professional photographer? Perhaps you're a Seaman? If you answered yes to any two of these questions, then have a look at the Seattle Sling Dry Bag ($150). Featuring an ultra-padded, zipperless build that creates a watertight core, the Dry Bag will prevent your bits from being bashed or drowned. Given its price and versatility, this pack might just be a viable solution for anyone looking for an entry level, all-purpose, all-weather photo bag. [via]
