Hate unpacking on vacation? We do, too. Luckily, a new suitcase design makes living out of your suitcase a far neater experience, no hangers required.

The Carry-On Closet 2.0 features built-in soft shelving that collapses to fit into a regular-sized suitcase shell. Currently available on Kickstarter, the unique design ensures that your careful pre-trip organization remains in place throughout your trip.

The suitcase by Solgaard Design has a flexible hanging shelf unit, not unlike what you might use to organize shoes or sweaters in within your closet at home. It's also designed to be opened while still upright, allowing you to expand the shelves upward and hang them from the top of the suitcase handle, forming an instant closet on wheels.

The shelving unit is removable, just in case you want to take a trip that involves stuffing something bulky in your suitcase. The shell also features a TSA-approved lock and a USB port and pocket designed for a portable power bank. The standard 36-liter suitcase weighs 7.6 pounds and can fit five to seven outfits, while the bigger 46-liter option weighs 7.9 pounds and can fit six to nine outfits.

These are the newer and better versions of a similar design Solgaard released in 2018, made to better fit airline size restrictions and with upgraded features. The Carry-On Closet 2.0 measures 21 inches by 13.5 inches by 9 inches, which meets all the size restrictions for carry-on luggage for the major airlines. The 46-liter Plus suitcase measures 22.5 inches by 14.6 inches by 9.6 inches, which is also acceptable for some carriers. (Many domestic airlines, including American, Delta, United, JetBlue, and Lufthansa, technically require a depth of 9 inches or less for carry-on bags, so keep that in mind when ordering. Solgaard Design writes on the Kickstarter that "we've tested on 20+ flights with the Carry-On Plus size and never been denied," so do with that what you will.)

Get one on Kickstarter in black or navy blue, and never roll your clothes again. The regular Carry-On Closet is available for $150, while the Carry-On Closet Plus sells for $165. The suitcases will ship in May 2019.

The Worst Drivers In America Live in These 15 States

No matter how many times you've been cut off on a road trip, anecdotal evidence alone can't prove that a certain state's drivers are worse than yours. For that, you need statistics. The personal finance company SmartAsset compiled data related to bad driving behaviors to create this list of the 15 states in America with the worst drivers.

This ranking is based on four metrics: the number of fatalities per 100 million miles driven in each state, DUI arrests per 1000 drivers, the percentage of uninsured drivers, and how often residents Google the terms “speeding ticket” or “traffic ticket.”

Mississippi ranks worst overall, with the second-highest number of fatalities and the second lowest percentage of insured drivers. This marked the third year in a row Mississippi claimed the bottom slot in SmartAsset's worst driver's list. This year, it's followed by Nevada in second place and Tennessee in third. You can check out the worst offenders in the country in the list below.

Some motorists may be more interested in avoiding the cities plagued by bad driving than the states. These two categories don't always align: Oregon, which didn't crack the top 10 states with the worst drivers, is home to Portland, the city with the worst drivers according to one quote comparison site. After reading through the list of states, compare it to the cities with the worst drivers in America here.
