About this project
Ultimate Carry On LLC introduces the newest advancement in the luggage industry with their patented Vacuum Shrink Pack System. No longer do you have to sit or jump on your luggage to get it closed. No longer do you have to check your bag and pay luggage fees. The Vacuum Shrink Pack System reduces the space your clothes occupy, allowing you to fit more into less, so go ahead and pack that extra outfit. Going on a longer trip or traveling as a family, no problem. Pack more clothing into the same amount of space.
The Ultimate Carry On is great for business travelers, families, men and women or anyone who wants to take control of their luggage, time and money. With baggage fees over fifty dollars round trip, Ultimate Carry On will pay for itself within a few trips.
Ultimate Carry On not only allows you to fit more into your suitcase, but it also provides multiple features to make travel better and less stressful.
No longer will you fight for floor space to sit by an outlet. Business travelers and families can take advantage of the dual USB charging ports on the Ultimate Carry On. Whether it is arriving to your next meeting fully charged and ready to go; or keeping your portable devices charged and ready for the next flight. With the Ultimate Carry On, you can charge two tablets at the same time with the 5V, 2.1A USB ports. Your phones charge faster with Rapid Charging Technology when compared to plugging them into an ordinary USB port. The control panel also contains an LED light that tells you the status of the battery.
The battery can charge a smartphone approximately 3-4 times, a tablet twice and run the vacuum pump for 8 minutes before being recharged.
If the Vacuum Shrink Pack System and Dual USB ports aren't enough, we also made it easier for you to walk through the airport with more of your travel goodies or accessories while still having one hand free. Ultimate Carry On has a custom bungee system built into the bag to hold your pillow, blanket or books. It even has a water bottle holder.
The front of the bag has two pouches. A smaller one to hold your TSA approved liquid bottles and a bigger one to hold your tablet or up to a 13 inch laptop.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
We've spent well over 2 years researching and developing the Ultimate Carry On. We've had numerous design changes, including adding spinner wheels and a 2nd USB port. We started with a huge pump and a heavy battery to run our vacuum system, but knew that it took up too much space in the luggage. We couldn't use that size pump if we wanted people to be able to travel with only their carry on bag. After multiple designs and prototypes, we have optimized the balance between size and performance.
After that, we spent hours upon hours coming up with the right parts to make sure this bag was truly functional for the everyday traveler.
KICKSTARTER SPECIAL: 5 YEAR UNCONDITIONAL WARRANTY
200K - We will add a new color of the plastic trim piece that will be chosen in a survey of all our backers.
400K - We will make the battery in the bag user replaceable, so you can just swap out the battery when it dies. No need to send it in for service.

Risks and challenges
The Ultimate Carry On offers the best in functional and smart luggage for the modern traveler. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, you'll find our bag features will allow you to pack more, travel lighter; save you money and best of all you will arrive fully charged and ready to roll. Our Vacuum Shrink Pack System provides additional packing space and our battery charger will charge multiple devices at one time.
The risks and challenges we foresee include on time delivery and vendor production timelines. We will do everything we can to avoid setbacks, yet we all know some things are out of our control. We are in the process of talking to other manufacturers in case a machine breaks or something else that gets thrown our way.
Luckily for us, we feel very confident with the manufacturer we chose to work with. They are located in China and have over 15 years of experience working with companies in the United States.
We are also in the process of securing extra parts and repair companies in the US in case there are issues once the bags arrive. Our goal is to put out a product that can compete with the bigger luggage companies and satisfy our customers to keep them for life.
We are also working out some of the design elements and will be adding an additional color selection down the road. For more information visit www.ultimatecarryon.comLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
