Tugo To Go

Look, No Hands!.........................(tugo1.jpg)

It’s one of those things you’d have never thought you needed. But now that it exists, you wonder how you lived without it. The tugo is a simple thing: a cupholder for your suitcase. Genius.

We have them in our cars, even on strollers. So, why not suitcases? I suspect we’ve all tried to do it – rush from check-in, grab a coffee, juggle suitcase, laptop, tickets, and cup all the way up to the gate. The end result is usually an explosive mess – the last thing you need just before a long-haul flight.

Hence the idea for the suitcase cupholder, dreamed up by Karen Porte, a mother and ER nurse who’s spent many a trip juggling baggage, beverage and kids. It’s lightweight, easy to take on and off, and best of all only $9.95. Great for drinks, rolled up newspapers and even stuffing the odd jacket into. RM
