The Zuca company began when a mom wanted a good rolling backpack for her daughter with back problems. They expanded their line to include the Zuca Pro, a cool-looking carry-on bag for travel. Outside the bag is a heavy-duty anodized aluminum alloy frame that can be used as a seat when you’re stuck in long security lines. The telescoping handle is 41″, so you don’t have to stoop to roll the bag. Inside is a set of packing cubes that helps organize your clothes and prevent wrinkles. There’s even a TSA-compliant toiletry bag and a ballastic nylon cover to protect the bag if you decide to check it. It’s total dimensions (19″ H X 10″ W X 13″ D) is 42″, so it meets FAA guidelines for a carry-on bag. The removable ballistic nylon bag is coated with water-resistant polyurethane and can be hand-washed. The Zuca Pro weighs 8.25 pounds (empty) and has a couple of handles to aid you in lifting it into the overhead bins. The Zuca Pro is available in three color combinations. The black frame/black bag and the silver frame/black bag combinations sell for $285.00; the silver frame/pink bag is $219.00.
