Foldable Backpack Scooter

We talked about a carry on luggage with a fold-out scooter last February, and you guys thought it was pretty neat. But that one was almost $400, while the Glyde Gear FLY is about one fifth that much, and seems to do much the same thing. It’s got a 1550 cu in / 25.4L capacity, and is made from 600 Denier Polyester, whatever that means. The fold out scooter can carry a man weighing up to 200lbs, and the entire thing should fairly easily serve as a carry on in any plane. Granted, it’s not made by Samsonite and doesn’t look as slick as the $400 option, but $90 to have the ability to scoot around an airport, between gates? That’s well worth it, in our opinion.

  1. it’s all wrong. the pictured bag is called Gig Pack and not the one by Glyde Gear. GG’s one is for kids (three wheels versus two large wheels). the Gig Pack is for you and me, limited to 90 kilograms (198 lbs) and from what we heard, it is still very much a prototype. hope this helps. you should really pay us a visit. we dig hard and deep for real answers.
