Business-Class Bags, 44F Prices

Is your suitcase carrying its weight?

Fact: It’s probably time to upgrade your luggage. 

Too often, we forget … or decide it’s not worth the time/money/hassle. 

But bags evolve. Not as fast as that phone in your pocket, but today’s top-of-the-line is lighter and stronger than ever. Which means you arrive where you’re going more relaxed and prepared. 

Enter the Marlowe, a designed-in-S.F. bag that will make your next flight easier.  And sexier.

Let us explain. 

Most luggage is unsightly, having been designed from a function-only perspective.  Fine when stowed in the overhead compartments, but not a good look the other 95% of the time.

The Marlowe is a handsome bag. (You want the slate blue, not the forest green.) 

If you don’t think you’re being judged by the quality of your bag, you’re either traveling alongside an exceptionally good-hearted plane’s worth of people, or you’re wrong. 

And it is light. Bag explosion is not a good look, which means durability is our top concern. But the Marlowe, at six pounds, aims to minimize weight while maximizing strength. 

Also on board: a removable compression pad, 360-degree spinner wheels, a polycarbonate shell and 10-year guarantee. Also for $135 at the current Indiegogo price. That’s a fraction of the cost of other high-end brands, easily $500 and up.  That savings comes thanks to its online-only distribution scheme and a brand built on “honest pricing.” 

Carry on, carry off, go about your business in style and ease. If that’s not the best way to begin, or end, a big trip, we don’t know what is.
