UPDATE May 29th: the project has been successfully funded! It is really coming to life. Expect more updates soon with the first ever GBAtemp styled luggage! Read the whole post below for more information... Original post May 2nd: A close friend of mine has just launched a Kickstarter-backed project called Ugobags: Style your trip with unlimited possibilities. The project will allow people to order suitcases from their website in a fully customizable way: either select one of their preconfigured designs, or design your suitcase entirely: upload your own logo or select an existing picture, create a pattern based on several colors, customize the different parts of the suitcase... You may wonder: what is the purpose of a customizable suitcase? Well if you have ever travelled around a bit like I have, you'll get the idea. The main reason why I personally love this is for the moment when you get to pick up your luggage after a long flight. Looking for your regular/overly common black suitcase among hundreds of other similar looking ones can be a major pain in the ass. Well no more! You can immediately identify your luggage because it's unique. You've designed it yoursef. And if you get a GBAtemp themed suitcase you'll be spreading the GBAtemp love around the world! Partnership with GBAtemp So I have talked with my friend who's behind the project. They are going to have preconfigured GBAtemp designs from day 1! That means the day their website launches, people will be able to create their own GBAtemp-styled suitcase, selecting a logo (similar to the one at the top of this article) and customizing the parts: case color, wheels, bumpers, handles... In addition to that, you can get a 25% discount right now if you back the project on Kickstarter! I have accepted to let them use our exclusive GBAtemp mascot design under one condition: for every sale they make with our mascot, a certain amount of the benefits will be donated to a charity. Yes, that's how we roll at GBAtemp: we're a non profit organization so we will be donating everything we get out of this to a charity. Which one though? Well that will be for you to decide! Once we decide that we've got enough, we will let you, the community, vote for the charity of your choice. After which we will make an official donation of all our gains from this operation. Isn't that sweet? More info will be provided later as the project launches. In the meantime go ahead and back them on Kickstarter, every single dollar will be helpful!

Read this review from a professional traveler who's got their hands on one of these babies Spread the news around you! The more you do, the more likely people are to order GBAtemp styled suitcases in the future, which means extra money for charities. Stay tuned!
