Shelfpack transforms from a suitcase into a clothing shelf in just a few seconds

Picture this. You’ve just spent an entire day travelling from plane to plane, being shuffled around by car service and finally you arrive at your hotel. You’re exhausted, but you need to find some clothes to change into.

Enter: Shelfpack. It’s part suitcase, part shelf. Just unzip your luggage, pull up, and voilà! — it morphs into a pop-up clothing shelf, which means no unpacking or sorting through articles of clothing for you. The suitcase comes with supports on either side that will transform into a dresser-on-wheels.

So, when you’re packing up at home, just make sure to organize your clothes appropriately and your hotel stays will be much easier. I mean, wouldn’t you rather be sun bathing by the pool with a cocktail in hand instead of sifting through your suitcase looking for your bathing suit?

Shelfpack comes equipped with four built-in shelves, three outer compartments, wheels, and retractable supports all-in-all totaling a gargantuan storage capacity of 7,000 cubic inches

Pretty nifty, right? It’s not quite as high-tech as Andiamo IQ’s smart suitcase equipped with USB ports and removable power pack, or a Samsonite GeoTrackR with built-in LugLoc technology that allows you to find your suitcase if you happen to get separated — but it’s still pretty convenient and wouldn’t hurt to have.

That said, one thing we should warn you about is the price on this handy-dandy gizmo. The Shelfpack website advertises the suitcase for $349 — Which is fairly pricey for luggage, and isn’t too far off from some other fancy luggage you can buy these days.

If you don’t mind the price, however, there is an upside. Thankfully, you don’t have to wait for any sort of crowdfunding campaign to finish before you can get your hands on one. Shelfpack shipments began about two months ago, so if you order now, it’ll arrive on your doorstep in just a few weeks — hopefully, before your next big trip happens.
