* Comically more compartments than meet the eye
* A bag that’s compact, yet keeps clothes nice
* The multitool of bags has room for your suit, shirts, shoes and more
A veritable magic carpet for your clothing and accessories, this multi-functional, Inspector Gadget-worthy duffel back is somehow both a hang-up garment bag and a compact, over the shoulder duffel that fits shoes, small electronics, socks, a shirt or two and even books and notebooks. It transforms from a caddy bag into a shoulder bag and also serves to keep suits and pressed clothing flat and clean.
Garment Bag Duffel
Duffel bags have long been the easy choice of those who travel light; there’s a certain youthful freedom in only having one bag, and that bag being one you can easily carry off one shoulder. As many of us discovered the first time we were flown in someplace and given an arrival time of only a few hours or less ahead of our pitch meeting or interview, the duffel does have its disadvantages. For one, it’s really difficult to keep all the clothing in them from wrinkling and taking on a wadded-up appearance. Not a big deal if you’re headed for a long weekend somewhere and are just going to put on sweats when you get to the cabana anyway, or if you only wear polyester shell suits. But if you’re on a business trip, and time of is the essence, you don’t need a wrinkled suit to add an extra wrinkle to your plans.
That’s where this handy Swiss army knife of a bag comes in. It lets you keep your suits pressed, and even has a separate compartment for shoes and bulky items, so they can’t wrinkle your blazer, pants, tie and dress shirt. A bonus: this multitool of bags is made of very water-resistant material, has heavy duty zippers and comes with a thick, well-padded shoulder strap.
In short: it’ll keep your contents safe, secure and organized without weighing you down either. Measuring about 14-inches wide with a 45 L holding capacity, this bag is sized for carry-on travel.
