I just finished a month of travel where I logged over 22,000 miles of flying time. It made clear that having the right gear makes all the difference. Gate 8 Luggage hopes to be that kind of gear. Their “flight-ready” and their $200 Trifold Cabin Bag holds two suits, shoes and other accessories as well as your laptop or tablet.

As they explain,

The GATE8 tri-fold wheeled garment Bag with clever Zip-Away Laptop Bag is the ultimate Road Warrior companion. You can pack enough clothes for a 1-3 day business , they arrive ready to wear! Your technology (Laptops upto 17″ + iPAD and Tablets) travel fully protected in the zip away laptop bag.

Board the aircraft and unzip the laptop bag to work in your seat. Arrive at the hotel and unzip the laptop bag to go to the office, the expo or conference and leave your clothes ready to wear in the hotel.

We have one on the way for review and are looking forward to putting it through its paces.
