Yes, you read that right — we said “smart” luggage. Because the suitcases from Raden wed travel with technology. All the great luggage markers are there — super-light, water-resistant shell; double-spinning Japanese wheels for 360° movement — as well as two built-in phone chargers and a built-in scale (let overweight-bag anxiety at the check-in counter be a thing of the past). Plus, the accompanying app keeps you looped in on all things related to your flight, like weather, traffic and delays, but our favorite part has to be this: Your suitcase connects to the app via Bluetooth… sending you an alert when your bag is coming down the baggage carousel.
