About

 Ultimate Carry On is a new smart brand of suitcase offering modern travelers a better way to travel. We cater to Families, Business Travelers, men and women who want to take control of their luggage, time and expenses. Our patented vacuum shrink pack system offers expanded packing options providing extra space to accommodate clothing alternatives for longer trips or for those with bigger families. The compression system provides cost savings for families on a budget and gives international travelers more packing options.

Ultimate Carry On is the only suitcase that delivers smart technology along with a vacuum shrink pack system providing maximum packing and charging capacity for business travelers and families.

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 (compared to charging with the USB from a computer) .  The control panel also contains an LED light that tells you the status of the battery.

So far, during testing, the battery can charge a phone approximately 3 times, a tablet twice and run the vacuum pump for 8 minutes before being recharged.

If the vacuum system and 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 not one but 2 water bottle holders, one on each side of the bag. 

You can even use the bottle holder to hold your phone while it's charging!

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 shrink wrap compression 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.com
