Plasti-Kase: Minimalist Travel Gear

Though it looks just like a plastic bag to you and me, the makers of Plasti-Kase claim their new travel gear — made from 100% post-consumer recyclables — is much more than that.

Capable of being stored in trees, in your pocket, or under your hat (!!!), the plastic bags are small enough to be “carry-on approved,” but large enough to boast 5 gallons of storage capacity. Plus, they can pick up dog poop!

The 1-ounce bags, which run $119, will be available starting in May from fine retail outlets nowhere.
