Raden’s line of sleek rolling hardshell suitcases ticks all the boxes: Practical, stylish, high-tech, and fun. With clever features like reversed, waterproof, and locking zippers, a sturdy polycarbonate case that won’t break but will bend, and 360-degree wheels, Radens are super practical. Sleek and minimalist in appearance with a flush, seamless handle and in 12 colors with a matte or gloss finish, they’re very stylish.
Raden even has an integrated weight scale in the handle, as well as an app that communicates with its luggage; proximity sensors let you know when your suitcase is approaching, eliminating the mad dash to post up at the baggage claim carousel, a feature that pretty much qualifies as all of the above.
What sets the Raden apart, however, is two built-in USB ports behind the handle, and an internal removable battery pack with enough juice to charge your phone from zero four times over. That’s right: a USB battery that isn’t something else you have to pack, and with enough power to actually use. Smart luggage is hot right now, with most complaints spawning from the high cost and negligible tech advantages. We plan to put the Raden through the MJ.com ringer soon; stay tuned for a full review.
Right now, you can get the A22 carry-on ($295), the A28 check ($395), and the A50 set of both ($595) in navy, black, or hunter green from our friends at Huckberry with free overnight shipping. But if you want one, you should hurry; this deal ends Friday.
