Live Luggage

Live Luggage

A British company which designs and manufactures stylish, innovative and practical luggage. Its patented anti-gravity handle puts 85% of the weight of a case onto the wheels and away from your body so there is less strain on your arms, shoulders and back making a bag feel very light to pull. It comes with a Live Locator ID to help you locate your bag in the event of loss. It has designed the world’s first power-assisted luggage with motors built into the wheels to assist when going up inclines, kerbs or along rough terrain. Sensors are fitted into the handle and detect when the user is struggling and a re-chargeable battery powers the motors in the wheels. Live Luggage…because the world is not flat.
