Because there are limits to the number of carry-on bags when you travel by plane, do you ever find yourself taking a bag big enough to hold what you need to carry on that’s way too bag for daily use once you get to where you’re going?  Or maybe you pick up too much documentation and swag at a conference or buy too many souvenirs to fit in your luggage?  If you pack a Travelon Packable Crossbody Tote (right) or Backpack, you’ll have a lightweight bag for daily use once you get to your destination and extra luggage to bring back all your stuff when you return.  Both bags are made of lightweight 190T Ripstop fabric, and both are available in teal, lime, or black.  The tote is also available in raspberry.  The backpack folds down to a 8.25″ X 7″ X 2.5″ pouch and opens to 13″ X 19″ X 5.5″; the tote folds down to a 7.75″ X 5.75″ X 2″ pouch and opens to 15.5″ X 14″ X 5.25″.  Each bag is $35.00; they aren’t available just yet, but they are coming soon from Travelon.  Click the “Coming Soon” tab on Travelon’s website to learn more about these bags.

  2. Great, This is how it starts. First you need a gear bag in your gear bag. Soon you will be putting gear bags in that bag, in your bag of gear. There is no logical end to this progression. Before you know it you have become a digital modern Mary Poppins with this never ending gear bag of gear bags. The density continues to increase bending and soon violating the laws of physics (and airplane carry on allotments) . A rift opens up in your gear bag threatening life and existence as we know it! All because YOU needed more swag space. How irresponsible.

    On a side note, I actually could have used this last week.
