Luggage company SDR Traveller makes suitcases more suitable for a Swiss bank heist than a Roman holiday.
The firm sells baggage designed to discreetly carry vast sums of cash, James Bond-style. Each SDR product is made of Cuben Fiber, which is four times stronger than Kevlar and only half the weight.
SDR has three marquee products. The company’s Money Pouches ($60.00) come in three sizes, which fit $10,000, $100,000 and $400,000, respectively. Who would carry this much coin? SDR’s website emphasizes that the pouches are for people who work “at the edge of the grid,” and are designed to reduce “risk of discovery” and “risk of damage” during “in-field accounting.”
The 1M Hauly ($220), which can transport $1 million in U.S. currency, will please even the most demanding under-the-radar traveler, given its “container robustness” and friction-free “glide”—the extent to which a bag of money will slide across a marble floor, as the company’s website explains.
The most elaborate SDR creation, the 1M Hauly Heist, takes all the features of the 1M Hauly and adds protections against radio frequency tracking, for those clients who work “at the edge of the grid” and hope to thwart detection during “in-field accounting.” This device’s air of paranoia is heightened by the fact that it takes three weeks to manufacture.
To be fair, SDR Traveller does offer one product not designed to keep large transactions off the grid. The D3 Traveller Duffel ($985) is made out of the company’s trademark Cuben Fiber, but is tailored more to the casual vacationer- its main selling point is that it’s easier to carry at the airport. Given this perk, it’s no surprise that the Traveller Duffels are currently sold out on SDR’s website.
