The New Zipperless Suitcase
The new suitcase by Trunkster is, well, simply amazing. Ditching those pesky, often faulty zippers, they developed the crown jewel of the suitcase world. Styled with a sliding roll-top door, this is an industrial suitcase. Not only is it durable and water resistant, but the roll-top door makes entry so easy. This bag is certain to withstand any baggage handling device. Plus, you’ll enjoy enhanced theft protection because there are no vulnerable zippers. A road warrior’s best friend, it has a surprise asset. Trunkster built a USB charging station with a removable battery on the suitcase. The power bank is also removable, allowing you to charge your devices anywhere. Two more amazing bonus perks can be found on this modern-day suitcase: a GPS so you don’t have to worry about ever losing your bag, and a built-in scale so you can say goodbye to overage fees.
