The problem: Traveling with two roll-aboard bags means both your hands are full.
The gadget: Train Reaction’s luggage-stabilizing device links two rolling bags so you can pull them as a single unit and free up a hand. The thin, flexible plastic chain threads through each suitcase’s top handle.
In practice, we found the link both cumbersome and flimsy. We struggled to link our bags in the first place. Then the top bag kept slipping off, especially on turns. We gave up after a frustrating walk from baggage claim to the rental car counter. The instructions suggest coupling a larger suitcase on top of a smaller one, and perhaps that set-up provides more stability, but we always travel with two similarly-sized bags.
