      I have only used Barracuda during my move and I noticed the wheels are awkward when pulling and the handle like Benjamin mentioned keeps getting stuck and the rotating element of the handle is really hard to use and hurts your hand when it locks.

      Not satisfied with it at all. I would like a refund!

      After one weekend trip to my barracuda is totalled. This is the most poorly designed bag that I've ever seen. The cup tray is floppy and useless. More importantly, the zipper does not stay sealed and the handle keeps getting jammed on something internal and will not open and shut properly.

      I would like a refund for this bag it is preposterous to sell something like this.

      @Eric Liu, we haven't been able to ship because we haven't response to the survey we sent you a couple of times. I see you only reached out to our customer support (the details of which is in our comment right below and in many of our updates) only yesterday late night and we have responded to you with the link to the survey an hour ago. Please work with our customer support to help us ship your rewards.
      Best,

    11. Eric Liu on April 11

      This is getting ridiculous, it is April 11, 2017, no updates or follow up from you guys, it is looks more like scam than an actual company. I hope you enjoy all the money you racked up.

      @Joe Moretti, @Jason Anthony Guy, sorry to about that. Please contact our customer support at delight@barracuda.co or via our website https://barracuda.co and we will be happy to resolve the issue.

      Hi Barracuda - how do I contact you re the zipper going at the bottom of my case? I've had it only a few months and it needs to be replaced. Please advise ASAP.

    14. Missing avatar

      Jason Anthony Guy on March 26

      UPDATE: In the interest of giving the luggage a fair shake, I've used it three or four times in the last few months.

      Today, while packing for my latest trip, I noticed the top left edge, above the zipper, was ripped.

      All my trips have been domestic, cross country once or twice. I've checked the bag more if then than not. I don't overpack the bag (the bag closes easily and remains flat).

      Yet after just a few trips, the bag is damaged.

      I've had cheaper bags last longer and go through much rougher travel.

    15. Thomas O'Riordan on March 12

      Anyone who's interested, I have two brand new Azure Blue units that I'm interested in selling.

      One in unopened box and second in opened box (to check it out). Awesome product!

      Nothing wrong with them or the product. Very happy with the quality and design. Just don't have a need for the intended utilization.

    16. Barracuda 2-time creator on March 11

      For anyone else who haven't received your reward it is either because we haven't received you survey, address confirmation or we had a problem shipping it. The shipping problem is only for international as USPS lost a painfully large number of shipments. If it is a US address then it most likely is missing survey/confirmation, please search you email and you might still find our email with the personalized link in it from last year.

      To help us resolve the issue and get you your rewards PLEASE EMAIL delight@barracuda.co (.co not .com). That would generate a customer support ticket which is far more efficient than contacting us via Kickstarter messages or comments.

      Thanks,

      Finally got it.
      Overall I believe it's worth the price I've paid. It is well made but could be improved.
      If I would have opportunity to remake it, I'll do the followings:

      ・Store the battery pack to where it can be locked.(inside maybe?)
      ・Make the tray little more stylish
      ・built in GPS tracking
      ・Have another larger size for longer travelers
      ・Make the Handle that doesn't lock in place without pushing on the button

      Thanks Barracuda!

      Hi Barracuda, I am one of the earliest backers and i still haven't received my product. I'd like to get my money back instead of waiting for my order because I moved out of the country. How can you reimburse me?

      hi,good day barracuda
      when u gonna send my items to me?
      i have been waiting for it 1 and half year almost.
      hope can get ur answer soon.
      thx

      I backed this project long ago, got mine also for a while but I could only use it until now as my business travel season was over when I got it.

      Overall it looks slick and sharp as anticipated. The swirl handle is mixed - it's hard to pull up or push down, and hard to twist around - but once it's in position it's nice to handle.

      I don't use the tray as one of the backers called out, hard to pull out fold out and hard to put it back.

      For short trip like 2- day 1- night I think it's good, don't mind just two wheels. But the compartment is small - I put in my shirt my suit and pants, a few small items and the bag is already filled. For a 3, 4-day trip I would need to go back to my Samsonite.

      Overall, it's ok but not worth to wait for so long.

      Hi,
      I thought the Barracuda has already been shipped? I'm still waiting for my 2 pieces and the order state just says pending. Is there a problem with customs duty in Germany or something else? Some information would be appreciated.

      Hi,

      I have still not received my Barracuda collapsible luggage. The shipping link shows that it was delivered to me 2 months ago, but it's not.
      The shipping link doesn't have any contact information, and says to contact the sender first. I have asked at the local post office and they don't know anything about it. I have received other shipments during these few months, but not the barracuda.
