Trying to find the right carry-on luggage can really become a challenge for most people. Trying to find something that fits within the size regulations but that is dynamic enough to not just be a duffel bag you throw the stuff in that you don’t really care about (because it will get wrinkled anyways) seems impossible to find. Fortunately, since we always have your best interest at heart, we found the solution with the SkyRoll Garment Bag.
Now when you hear the word garment bag, you probably think of that old fold over crappy bag that offered zero protection to suits you always saw your dad packing up before a business trip. That was then and this is now. We got to try out the SkyRoll Garment Bag when they sent us a free demo to show us just how awesome their bag was. In order to provide you with the most detailed experience with it, we decided to take it on a trip. The first thing you notice about the bag is the material is a sturdy yet flexible one that seems to be much more durable than the old garment bags (which seemed to be made out of the same material as a $10 tent). The next thing you quickly realize is just how inventive these guys were with every inch of space they had to work with.
So at the core of the bag is a hard cylinder type of case that has zip openings on both sides to reveal areas that you can fit shoes, toiletries, belts, and anything else that might not be considered a “garment”. Even when you zip open each side to reveal these spaces, there’s an additional zip at the top of the cylinder that you can stuff socks or other random items into. The optional shoulder strap was extremely comfortable and padded in all the right places. That is a huge deal for a non-wheeled bag so don’t think we’re just being picky.
Around that cylinder was a detachable garment bag that wrapped tight enough to be secure yet managed some kind of magic that kept all of our shirts from wrinkling while en route. It’s super easy to pack shirts this way as you simply place them into the garment part of the bag and roll them right around the cylinder. The garment bag is secured with multiple clips and even velcro to keep it snug against the cylinder. We stuffed 10+ t-shirts and dress shirts into it and they fit just find. The straps are adjustable which makes it easier to have the bag work with whatever kind of clothing you’re packing. There are also a couple of pockets you can place boxers and undershirts into (think any foldable clothes) which goes back to SkyRoll maximizing every inch of space.
After you get it all wrapped up and ready to go, they went ahead and added another zip pocket on the outside that you can place anything you need to get to quickly. We placed boarding passes, iPhone chargers, and more so we could have quick and easy access.
Gadgets 4 Guys loved the SkyRoll and were impressed with just how much clothing we were able to fit into it. This isn’t just luggage for the business travel warriors out there, this is a for everybody.
