Need to take a load off your feet while waiting in those long airport lines? The Züca luggage case doubles as a sturdy seat; you can rest on it. The case is surrounded by an outer aluminum frame designed to withstand up to 300 pounds of pressure.
It's the right size for weekend trips and includes a pull-out handle, rolling wheels and lots of convenient pockets. But because of its rigid frame, you may struggle to squeeze it into the overhead compartments of some airplanes. The Züca Pro model is $295 from (800) 799-6548, www.zuca.com, or luggage retailers.
