Pumpack: Vacuum-Packed Suitcase Lets You Carry More

I’m going on another trip in a few days, and while I’m excited for some more sightseeing and some much-needed R&R, I’m not very excited about the prospect of packing.

Not because I’m lazy or anything. Actually, I’m pretty OC about it, because I have to write down a ton of lists (which I double and triple-check) before packing to make sure that I don’t forget anything. It’s the actual packing (or “stuffing everything into the suitcase”) part that I hate. I usually have to have someone else with me just to sit on the suitcase while I zip it close.

Well, not anymore, I hope – if the Pumpack eventually makes it way into production. Pumpack is a suitcase with an integrated pump that can vacuum pack your clothes so you can fit more of your stuff into it. We’ve already got suitcases with expandable hoods; and we’ve already got vacuum bags, so now it’s time to get suitcases with expandable hoods and vacuum pumps.

And if you’re the type who goes crazy over creases, then simply bring a travel iron with you. I’m sure it’ll fit easily with all the extra space you’ve got after vacuum packing everything. Still, it won’t do anything about the weight of your suitcase, and the ridiculous fees airlines are charging for bags these days.

The Pumpack is a design by Yejee Lee, Jongchan Mun, Seobin Oh and Woneui Hong and is a 2011 Red Dot Design concept winner.
