The new Powered Hybrid soft-top bag

The new Hybrid PA Bag from Live Luggage with its clever three bag zip-system is the perfect solution to get around the varied airline weight restrictions for checking in your luggage.

Because of the clever design the overnight bag and laptop bag can be removed from the main luggage and carried separately or zipped together as a single piece of hand luggage. During trials the Hybrid loading capacity (typically 95 litres) weighed in at 23Kg - this included the powered wheels which are 1Kg each. The Hybrid has all the advantages of the company’s pioneering hard top PA series – the world’s first power assisted luggage launched to worldwide acclaim last Summer – yet it has been designed specifically as a lightweight, flexible solution for air travellers. It still has the motorised wheels and the anti-gravity handle.

Furthermore, the new Hybrid PA Bag travel system is significantly lighter than the ultra-secure PA series, improving power-to-weight ratio and making the new case feel light and effortless to pull, whether going up a hill or up a step – a truly high-tech solution to the familiar problem of moving a heavy suitcase.

The Hybrid PA Bag features Live Luggage’s patented innovative, extendable “anti-gravity” handle that pivots away from the case. This is height-adjustable for user-comfort, so no matter how tall or short the person, 85% of the weight of the luggage is balanced over the suitcase wheels.

On smooth level surfaces, such as an airport concourse, this means that minimal effort is required to pull the case and it won’t scuff your shoes or bang into your legs. For more challenging conditions, such as inclines or rough ground, power is applied through strong and reliable “pancake motors” built into each wheel. Thanks to sensors in the anti-gravity handle and an intelligent torque control system, the motors deliver exactly the right amount of power to compensate the wheels in any situation. This means that the Hybrid PA Bag will still feel equally light when going up inclines or over bumpy ground, and can even keep up with you if you need to hurry.

The wheels are powered by a rechargeable 12V NiMH (nickel metal hydride) battery the same size as a standard laptop charger. Because the suitcase determines exactly how much power is needed in any situation, it is highly efficient, resulting in a range of up to 1.5 miles, and batteries are quickly recharged. Plus, if you are caught without power, you can simply disable the motors and – thanks to the anti-gravity handle – the case will still be much easier to move than traditional designs.



The new Hybrid PA Bag is robustly constructed on a lightweight, super-strong frame with a tough, PC ABS body. The front of the case is made of ultra-light, durable, padded nylon which has undergone rigorous testing. The removable laptop and overnight bags are made of the same material. Included free with every case is Live Locator, Live Luggage’s unique, free luggage tracking service. Every PA and Hybrid PA series suitcase is tagged with a unique, laser-etched serial number. In the event of a case going astray, a text message and e-mail will be sent to the owner with details of its location. There is even a built-in umbrella in the anti-gravity handle, which is secure when the case is in locked mode.

If you are a frequent traveller who wants to avoid the stress, fatigue and injury of dragging heavy bags, the Live Luggage Hybrid PA Bag is the travel system for you.

Live Luggage is designed and manufactured in the UK.s.
