I owned a previous version of this bag that I had used for about 10 years. At the time, there were many other tri-fold garment bags, but now there aren't. Still I happily bought a new Swiss Army tri-fold bag because you can almost always wedge it into an airline overhead bin, even if you're not the first one on the plane.

My only complaint is that the older bag had slightly more outside storage, which I personally prefer to inside storage. Maybe you don't care or maybe I just need to pack more inside.

The bag is GREAT for one suit or 1 jacket/pants combo, but can also carry an extra pair of pants and the shirts you need. i wouldn't use it for a weeklong trip, but I've used it on plenty of 3-night trips.



  1. Now this is pretty neat. It's old hat to stick a "post to Facebook" link on your site, but it never occurred to me how much more natural it is to have a "blog it" link on your reviews site.

    Lots of bloggers focus on a product category, so it's a quick leap to ask them to re-post reviews on their blogs. Shmart!

  2. A garment bag is a very useful travel bag in which one can hang various articles of clothing, as opposed to an ordinary suitcase with folded clothes inside. It is made of durable material, closes with a zipper and often folds in half and has a handle so it can be carried. There are various sizes and types of garment bags which serve different purposes.
