Describe your product in 3 words.
Sleek Smart Collapsible
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
As frequent travelers, both domestic and worldwide, we were all too familiar with the hassles of quickly and easily getting packed, out the front door, through the airport and to our destination in style. When we couldn’t find the perfect carry-on bag for our needs, we invented it. In the process, we discovered we’d created a global phenomenon.
What makes your product special?
Barracuda has redefined what a carry-on bag can be. The world’s first collapsible smart carry-on bag features a collapsible easy-to-store form, a built-in USB charger, GRSM/GSM/Bluetooth location tracking, a fold-out laptop tray and more. It truly blends art and awesomeness, and looks damn good while it at it.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
We could never have anticipated the global community that has emerged around Barracuda. Getting feedback from customers about how much they love the product is the most satisfying thing ever, and it keeps pushing us to greater heights. Barracuda isn’t just the perfect carry-on. It’s a dream come true.

First off, the bag is sleek. I love the way it looks. During my first trip out, I was complimented by another passenger who came up to me and asked if I was carrying the "bag that was on Kickstarer". At first, I was shocked that he knew the brand, but then we had a great conversation about it and I even showed him some of the features that he was curious about. It felt good having a bag that not only looked good but also was a conversation-piece.
The bag has several features that I find myself actually using. For example, when I returned back home from both trips, I was able to unload my bag and immediately collapse it. I even got into the habit of hanging it up in my closet. I would've never dreamed of doing something like that in a million years. You think of luggage, and you immediately think garage or some other storage where the ugly bag is out of sight.
I also found myself using the battery charger quite often. I didn't realize how frequently I am running out of battery. There's a sense of peace when you know you have a backup battery pack to be able to use. I frequently use Uber and after a long flight, I am sometimes low on juice. There have been a few times in the past where I actually had to take a normal taxi cab because my phone died (how archaic, right???). But with the Barracuda, I have a sense of security knowing that I can just plug my phone in and be good.
It's funny how technology tells you what you don't have sometimes. Like I never would've thought that I needed a tray to put my laptop on or to put my drinks on top of. Once you have it, it's hard to imagine going back. I usually always have a water bottle on me, which fits snugly into the Barracuda tray cup holder. That was honestly a pleasant surprise. I was expecting that I wouldn't actually use that feature, but again, technology can surprise you sometimes.
Lastly, the bag itself has ample space for these trips that I take. I don't think it's the right bag for a 2-week trip, but I guess what carry-on is? I found that enjoyed using the laptop sleeve within the front pocket. Another simple feature that I have been without for years! The zippers are nice, they feel real as opposed to my other carry-ons. There are nice touches like this throughout the bag and I was definitely pleased with everything.
I almost forgot about the turning handle+wheels. The two of them together make this bag very smooth! I didn't know if I would like a two-wheeler, but the wheels are clearly very high quality. They glide smoothly on any floor, and with the handle, the bag just flows so nicely. I don't find myself kicking the bag either because the handle allows me to carry the bag slightly to the side.
I will definitely be recommending this to my friends and family. The bag is rugged, so I think this one will last for a while which I'm really happy about. Great bag and thanks!
So taking those emotions out I'll write my review:
- The idea/design: if your think about it; a collapsible, battery included, built-in-laptop table, carry on luggage is the dream for all travelers. But it was just in paper.
- Battery: fully charged will have between 3-5 full charges for a regular phone. Less if it's a pad. It's removable.
- Not strong materials: Even when assembled feels strong, the plastic seems that it will not hold normal airport/travel life. Especially if you travel in regional planes when you need to vallet check your bags.
- Laptop tray: (for me the worst) great idea, but will not hold a standard laptop! Warning label indicates maximum of 7.7lbs. If you want to watch a movie in your iPad while waiting then it will work just fine. If you wanted to actually send some emails while waiting for your next plane then no. I'll update this review after my first travel. I can't attach a video but an HP 4.5lb laptop practically bent the entire tray. It just will not hold a laptop while you type on it. Do not advertise it as a "laptop tray" with a picture of someone typing on it!
- Handle: even when the ergonomic handle is a great idea, you need to push it down firmly to get it in or out. There's no button to release the handle. Plus it seems week as well.
- Storage space: compared to a Brookstone 20", clearly less storage space.
I'll add comments after my first travel. Hopefully some additional pros rather than cons.
Stylish (It has a very classy look to it, i love the linen finish on the bag)
Sturdy (I was impressed with how sturdy this bag is when you open it from the collapsed state)
Spacious (I packed in atleast 6-7shirts and 4 trousers along with a pair of shoes and toiletry kit)
Ergonomically helpful (The circular handle really helps you maneuver around busy airports)
Strolls super smooth (I was concerned about it having only 2 wheels but no problems whatsoever)
I actually hang it in my closet.(I really do!)
I no longer need to carry a separate Battery Pack (I have forgotten my battery pack at home a million times, so not having to worry about it is awesome!)
I do travel internationally and sometimes I need to check in my luggage, the TSA lock on the bag makes it super convenient to just lock it and check it in without worry about it.
I wish they made backpacks as well!
Overall, I love the bag and am considering purchasing a few more for my family members who travel frequently.
