When I arrived in Vienna, Austria, the other day, I had a horrible surprise at the airport: My suitcase, which had started the journey with two wheels, now had only one, courtesy of the fine baggage handlers at British Airways. Luckily, the airline rep inside Customs told me they’d replace it—that is, let me spend up to 300 euros on a new one. Right away, I bought a fancy new ultralight Samsonite.

And a few hours later, I totally regretted the purchase. That’s because I saw this:

For those of you who can’t be bothered to watch the video, it’s a series of suitcases designed by Agent for traveling dads like me. There’s the SURFN, with a fold-down plank for toddlers to coast on; the RIDN, with a soft seat-like top you can rest on; and the STROLLN, which has a built-in stroller-esque seat for babies.

Unfortunately, these seem to be more concepts than actual products. But just in case Agent is wondering about demand, or is looking for investors/manufacturers, let me just say that I would probably buy one as it became available, and not just because, since I’m a travel writer and dadblogger, it’s tax-deductible. As I said in the headline: Want!
