aroo - less air...more clothes
Our business trip travelers know that the battle for more space in the carry on is a never-ending struggle. Let aroo allow any traveler to use a real tool to win back that battle.
What is the benefit of one less bag? The benefit of not checking a bag? The benefit of isolating yesterday's clothes into it's own bag? aroo offers options to these questions.
Aroo in an early stage of development, the exercise in air flow dynamics. The developers daughter, a United States Air Force cadet and student in Texas is a driving force behind aroo's development.
The sophisticated state of the art aroo impeller:
Ultra light and powerful medical device LI rechargeable battery. Aroo weighs in at 165g/5.8oz and is 15 1/4cmx 7cm x 8cm ` 6"x2 3/4"x3 1/4" A very small and light package.
Aroo has a universal sealing port which means this vacuum works with any compression bag on the market today. You also have the choice of using the travel specific easy loading aroo compression bag system.
Our carry on sized bag has the zipper along the long side of the bag. Why? Well, it's a lot easier to load. The aroo sleeve makes loading even easier and flatter with less wrinkles.
What is interesting is the commentary from TSA's assistant director of screening on our aroo bag system. The opinion was when used as directed, aroo could actually speed up the TSA wait lines. How so? When screening a typical college students duffel bag, with lots of loose clothing, to a thin compressed aroo bag/sleeve, it becomes self evident. Our system is sleek and thin for an inspector to scan/feel. An inspector could "page through" a properly loaded aroo suitcase, like pages in a book. The aroo vacuum was described as an item of little to no interest due to it's typical battery and motor build appearance when imaged.
