Gascase: Suitcase Not Approved for Dispensing Gasoline
March 8th, 2010
This is one cool-looking suitcase. It comes from Ivorilla, a Frankfurt-based company, and it’s called the GasCase. If you’re looking to disguise your luggage as a can of gasoline, or just to have stand-out bags, definitely check these out.
I don’t know if carrying around a case that looks like it could be filled with flammable fuel is a good thing when you have to go through airport security, but hey, these look awesome. The bags are available in either Zippo-lighter style flip-top or traditional suitcase cabinet-door variants. And if you thought that these were made out of plastic, you’d be dead wrong! They’re made out of steel and mounted on heavy-duty trolley wheels.
This is kind of cool, but absurd at the same time. Steel luggage will weigh a ton compared to plastic or nylon luggage. You lose a lot of packing capacity to the actual weight of the bag. If you’re exploring and you need a heavy duty case, this might be the perfect one. For now, these cases are only available in Europe and prices start at around €100 (appx. $137 (USD).
