A Device That Lets You Drag Your Suitcase Using Your Butt

Kirstin Fawcett

Don’t want to carry or ride your suitcase through the airport? Try dragging it using one of the body’s strongest muscles: the butt. Travel + Leisure recently highlighted a small plastic gadget called My Hitch that lets you attach a suitcase to the back of your pants. As you walk between flight gates, the bag trails behind you, freeing your hands for more important things, like holding boarding passes or drinks.

If you're a brave soul who's willing to suffer a few stares from strangers in the name of convenience, you can purchase My Hitch for $18 online. Word to the wise: When you’re using the device, wear a belt so your suitcase won’t cause an unfortunate de-pantsing incident. Also, stick with lighter luggage items that weigh less than 25 pounds. Aside from that, My Hitch works for people of all heights, so there's no need to try it on for size before buying it.
