It's not everyday you encounter travel gear\u00a0that reminds you of a luxury car. Indeed,\u00a0the A28 Check Smartcase from Raden Luggage does exactly that. The outside is a smooth, light and sturdy\u00a0shell. The inside\u00a0is plush and roomy and even has\u00a0that "new car" smell. This luggage\u00a0is smart, too--it includes a built-in phone charger and adjoining app. And those wheels don't just roll as much they glide across the floor. Heck, if the A28 had two more wheels and a convertible frame, you'd want to shrink yourself down just so you could ride it.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAlong with a few other brands like Away, Raden is a leading name\u00a0in the new wave of luggage. By "new wave" we mean luggage that's smart in both construction and concept. That entails\u00a0using premium materials that are built to endure, but never rugged in appearance. It also means the ability to weigh your luggage in advance and then check that weight against airline policy. In other words,\u00a0your days of being excessively gauged could soon be over.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWe got our hands on an A28\u00a0in a lovely shade of Hunter Green and it handles like a champ in every regard. It arrived in a soft outer sleeve that exudes quality at first sight. Slip down that sexy garb\u00a0to reveal\u00a0a polycarbonate shell. The shell\u00a0is smooth to the touch, remarkably\u00a0light and painstakingly resilient. Such optimal material\u00a0can duly\u00a0withstand the harshest treatment\u00a0no matter how bad a day the luggage handler might be having.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSlide the zippers along a\u00a0frictionless trail before opening the case\u00a0to unveil\u00a0a beautiful polyester interior. As mentioned, there's a palpable and unmistakable "new car" aroma to greet you. Pair that fresh smell with\u00a0lush, almost pillowy texture and the interior is simply emanating with luxury vibes. The compartments\u00a0are beyond spacious\u00a0while double-sided zippers keep the whole operation seamless and unquestionably secure.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nOf course, what truly separates Raden's A28 from the standard fare is that it's "smart" in the modern sense. A side handlebar doubles as a weight sensor. A built-in rechargeable battery allows for up to four full phone charges, and two USB ports enable dual device charging. Sync the luggage\u00a0with the adjoining app and you can check things like\u00a0weight or battery charge and even locate\u00a0the gear\u00a0within a range of 100 feet.\r\n\r\nIt's light. It's smart. It's tough. It's seamless. Raden welcomes you to the new frontier of travel gear.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
