Long vacations mean extra packing, but bringing those extra bags can be a hassle. Many airports are starting to charge for luggage carts, and unless you planon dragging a suitcase on each arm, you like to keep your hands free as a traveler. Luckily, Train Reaction provides a solution with their luggage stabilizing device.

 

The Train Reaction is a plastic, ladder-like gadget that is an ingenious, low-tech way of lightening the load. Two rolling suitcases are linked together at the top, letting the bags link together like a train. When you tip your bag forward, the suitcase behind it will move in synchronization and rest on the first bag, distributing the weight in an efficient manner that feels much lighter than a luggage cart. Movement is smooth and natural, allowing you to move two suitcases easily with one hand, though sharp turning does requires a bit of care.

 

The product can be used with rolling suitcases of any size, and you can link bags of different sizes together, though the device works most efficiently by pairing luggage of similar proportions. The Train Reaction is made in the United States and comes in black and pink. You can learn more at TrainReaction.com.
