Form meets function in this multitasking mens, leather, carry-on garment duffel bag. Constructed of water-repellent, black, manmade leather, this two-in-one bag features exterior side pockets, front zip pocket, and an adjustable/removable strap....more
I was interested in what I had ordered since the description does not tell you squat about how it works. I took a chance, and was pleasantly surprised.
Start off with a short garment bag with center zip, top and bottom velcro openings. Put your hanging stuff in and roll the bottom and top toward each other zipping the side panels. Now you have a really thick sided duffel with a compartment in the middle for stuff. Both end panels have a pocket to stuff items like shave kit, etc. There is also an outside pocket that would work for underwear, socks, sleepwear, book, tickets, magazine, etc..
Am able to get 1 blazer, 1 travel vest, 2 pants, 2 shorts, 2 long sleeve shirts, 2 short sleeve shirts in garment section ( I get creative with wire hangars - ! keep it to 4 wire hangars and use the dry cleaning bags to separate). Center duffel compartment holds underwear for 7 days, loafers, teva sandals, shave kit, sleep wear, swimsuit, bag with all the electric cables for camera, ipod, cell phone, blackberry, laptop and electric razor. The bag is full, but am not crushing anything at this point. I carry all of the above mentioned electronics in my backpack with room to spare, and generally have more stuff than I will use for a 3-5 day trip.
Leather is good quality, hardware is sturdy. Forces you to UNPACK when you get to your destination because to get to the garment bag, everything must come out of the center compartment. If you like to live out of the bag, this will be frustrating for you. Of course, you could hang your stuff up, then put it all back in the bag. That would be frustrating for me knowing that someone did that.
Cannot beat it for the price and functionality. Now I can get rid of rolling bags, duffels, garment bags, lost luggage, and waiting at various airports for my stuff that has been mangled by the baggage handlers.
I purchased this bag for a week long motorcycle trip, as I needed a smaller bag for this trip. I was able to hang 3 pair of slacks, 3 dress shirts, a pair of dress shoes, along with a pair of jeans and a couple of tee shirts, along with all of my toiletries and more.
I was amazed at just how much fit into this bag and my hanging cloths arrived in fairly good shape condisering they had been strapped to the back of a motorcycle for several days. I was impressed by the overall quality of this bag and the design of the bag, very useful.

After 4 flights and a lengthy car trip I can enthusiastically recommend this duffel; it holds a ton. I packed 4 hangers worth into the "garment" section and my PJs, robe, jeans, a sweater, pair of shoes and all my toiletries into the duffel with room to spare (the clothes on hangers did need a bit of touch up with an iron). It fit easily into the overhead bins on both full and commuter sized aircraft. The zippers are sturdy and the faux leather exterior makes it very low maintenance.

This is a deceptively large bag. Its looks like it is very small because it lays flat but it holds many days worth of clothing once its zipped. We put several shirts and pants on hangers in the hanging part and zipped it up and there was so much room for shoes, and other clothing like underwear and socks in the smaller compartments, and other clothing in the main part. It was surprisingly large. The leather-like material is not bad looking at all. It is perfect for a long weekend trip for my son.

This is a very handy bag for traveling. Bought it to keep things simple on my honeymoon and have used it on a number of trips since. It holds your suits and other close intact. There is room for plenty of other items. I even stick my 17" laptop in the middle or in the side pouch. I tend to overstuff and beat up on bags, but this one has held up well. Plan to put it to good use for years to come.

I love the looks and concept of this bag, and the main function works great. The leather is good quality and the zippers are very sturdy. The only poor aspect of the construction - I have had the bag for a couple weeks and already the lining of the side pockets is starting to tear at the seams. This is not a structural issue with the bag, so it isn't a huge problem for me. A great bag for the price and very convenient for short wedding trips!
The side zippers that turn this from a duffel to a garmet bag need reinforcing at the base as there's no stopper. This leads to the zippers failing, however this is fixed with needle and some heavy thread.
It's put up well with abuse over the past few years and has been my go to for work travel. Far easier to get from airport to hotel using a train and underground without a boxy-wheelie carry on.
