BIBILAB has released the Nomad Suitcase, a suitcase that opens into a table. You can use this suitcase-table to create your own office space anywhere you want! Not only is it useful for office work, it can also be used as a small picnic table, a registration table at events, a table for street performance, etc. (Check out the details here.) A Gigazine writer tried out this cool, new suitcase!

I received two huge boxes from BIBILAB.

P2450999

I opened the boxes and took out these two suitcases, one navy and the other yellow.

P2460253

This is the yellow Nomad Suitcase viewed from the front. The space is split into two parts.

P2460256

On the right side is the handle.

P2460257

The back side is the desk part.

P2460258

On the left side is the space to stow away the foldable chair.

P2460260

There are two pockets, perfect to stow smaller items.

P2460264

This side part is detachable, so feel free to detach it when you won’t be needing it. You may lose this side part when going on a flight, so it may be a good idea to secure it tightly with a belt.

P2460259

On the top is another handle, along with an additional carry-handle that can be adjusted to three different lengths.

P2460262

The carry-handle pulled out looks like this.

P2460037

The suitcase looks like this next to a female 153cm tall. The size is approximately 440 x 294 x 689mm with a storage of 71L, so it is a suitcase suited more for an entire week’s worth of travel, rather than for a shorter trip of 2-3 days.

Above is a video of actually setting up the Nomad Suitcase.

P2460041

First, lock two out of the four tires.

P2460043

There is a latch on the bottom part of the table, so we pull it up…

P2460044

And open it up like this.

P2460045

Expand the legs…

P2460048

And pull them out.

P2460051

Lastly, take off the table support (stowed on the back side of the table) and attach it to the groove on the suitcase.

P2460054

The chair is stowed in the side of the suitcase.

P2460055

Set this up as well.

P2460063

The setup is now complete!

P2460206

How is it useful? We decided to try out variations! For example, you may notice yourself walking around aimlessly with food in your hands, but no place to eat.

P2460218

If you have a Nomad Suitcase, you’ll never have to worry about a place to eat. You can enjoy a picnic whenever, wherever!

P2460215

When sitting on a bench, you can have a hard time eating bento, having to carry it with one hand while using the other one to eat. With the suitcase, you can easily open up a table and eat at ease.

P2460227

Or what if you need to immediately get to work on your laptop, but have no space? No fear! Just open up the suitcase table and start working.

P2460239 P2460240

The suitcase is useful for street performers as well! Our editor did comment that he wanted a bit more height when using cards, though.

P2460245

For those who cosplay, you can stow away your costume in the suitcase and use the table as an area to fix your makeup even when you’re outdoors.

P2460004

The great thing about a Nomad Suitcase is the fact that it is useful not just as a desk, but as a normal suitcase as well! The suitcase is split into two parts, with the top holding 23L and the bottom holding 48L. The top part looks like this.

P2460027

There are two mesh pockets on the lid.

P2460013

The bottom part has a lock. The lock was set when the suitcase arrived, so we pressed the reset button and set it to a code we liked.

P2460017

Pull down the slide attached above the dial to unlock.

P2460018

I opened up the bottom part.

P2460022

There is a big and small pocket attached to the lid. Inside the bigger pocket was the instruction manual for the desk setup.

P2460026

There is also a screen to prevent your luggage from popping out.

P2460033

You can use the two spaces accordingly, whether it be by splitting it for a two-person trip or putting your work goods in one space and personal goods in the other.

P2460266

The navy Nomad Suitcase looks like this.

P2460268

If two people on a business trip both use Nomad Suitcases, they can easily build a quick meeting space!

Nomad Suitcases are purchasable on Amazon for ¥22,581.
