"I admit it. I drink too much coffee. Especially when I'm traveling. It's one of the little things that helps take the sting out of out schlepping my bags through an airport or hotel. Unfortunately, it's not always easy to wheel my bags through the terminal with my laptop bag swinging from my shoulder without spilling my coffee.
Luckily now, I don't have to worry about that. I just came across a pretty nifty little product that solves that problem."
"Cups full of liquid automatically swivel to remain upright when a bag is moved. Presto--a free hand finally for digging out the passport! Simple, cheap ($9.95!) and effective. What more could a business traveler want?"

The Tugo is a cup holder for your roll-along suitcase. The rubber holder hangs from the two extending bars that comprise the slide-out handle, and keeps the cup upright, letting you cruise across smooth airport concourses without spilling a drop.
I gave up on rolling luggage after the Lady told me that it sapped me of my manliness (somebody else told me that my suitcase was the color of “a prosthetic limb”, which may also be a factor). If I was still toting a carry-on feminizer, though, instead of a testosterone-filled rucksack, I’d certainly grab one of these $10 holders. Heck, it would even be useful for holding rolled-up magazines or jackets, the kind of stuff you usually try to balance (in vain) on the top of the case.

In a nutshell: APPROVED.
A hot accessory for today’s jet-setting coffee to-go generation, the tugo is a novel contraption that is sure to turn heads. If only airlines rolled out the cup holders in economy cabins to avoid coffee spills during turbulence! Then again, if only coffee in the air tasted as good as on the ground…

"It's one of those things you'd have never thought you needed. But now that it exists, you wonder how you lived without it. The tugo is a simple thing: a cupholder for your suitcase. Genius. We have them in our cars, even on strollers. So, why not suitcases?
I suspect we've all tried to do it - rush from check-in, grab a coffee, juggle suitcase, laptop, tickets, and cup all the way up to the gate. The end result is usually an explosive mess - the last thing you need just before a long-haul flight."
