SeatKase acts as a suitcase, stool and computer station

Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

The SeatKase isn’t just luggage; it’s more like mobile furniture. The carry-on is strong enough to be used as a stool while waiting for your flight or taxi. Springs in the wheels lock to prevent slippage while you’re sitting. (Note that, for safety, your heels should rest on the wheels’ side.)

Even better in our tests was the flip-up laptop table that turns your suitcase into a portable computer station. Slip-sleeve pockets to hold your boarding pass or newspaper make this little suitcase even more functional. A good value at $99, plus $15 for shipping. Info: (888) 437-7339,
