January 31, 2005 With the advent of MP3 players and laptop music programs, there are a lot more people travelling with extensive music collections. The trend has created a stronger demand for a portable speaker solution and if you're a frequent traveller, the BoomBag might be the solution you've been seeking - it's the world's first stereo luggage!

Boom Bags include a removable stereo amplifier, speakers, and subwoofer, mounted in the normally unused space between and around the trolley rails, with almost no impact on the packing space. The result is near "home quality" sound using the suitcase as a large speaker cabinet or resonance chamber.

The bags include a microphone input with separate volume control, so anyone doing presentations can use their suitcase to provide speakers and amplification for a multimedia program, and for live narration at the same time.

Boom Bags are available now in two models. The Boom Bag Rolling Office features a removable laptop shoulder bag, which can be carried separately and a large main compartment with ample space for a projector or a few days' worth of clothes.

The Boom Bag Rolling Suiter is a clothing-oriented 22-inch carry-on sized bag. It features a removable hanging garment sleeve. Both bags are sized for carry on convenience but "they can be checked as baggage without concern for the stereo system due to the rugged construction," according to Boom Bags' John Wright.
