The FreeHand Travel is a cup holder for your upright rolling bag funding on Kickstarter.
This review is based on the concept video and the price, I do not own this item (yet).
I am big fan of hands-free travel, in fact it is a major part of my travel philosophy. Still, the FreeHand seems like a novelty and not a serious travel item I will be packing in my bag. The cup holder looks flimsy with a neoprene holder which might not wear well. I really don’t like the idea of lugging my coffee / drink that way. If I don’t have a hand for my coffee, I’ve packed wrong.
The inventor went a step further to over complicate the item by adding a cell phone / passport storage pouch called the Mobile Pack. They must be insane to think I would store those two vital items in my drink holder.
Through Kickstarter the minimum donation to own a FreeHand (without the mobile pack) is $15 (+$6 with shipping). It’s a small price to support someone’s dream, therefore I have pledged $21 to this project because I love the story but not the product. If this project funds, I promise an update when I receive the product.
Update 4/13/2016: the FreeHand did meet it’s minimum funding goal of 22,000. A full review is coming when I receive mine.
