We collected and reviewed the best garment bags to help you choose the best for your needs.
Unlike the Briggs & Riley Baseline Domestic Expandable Carry-On U122Cx-4 type of suitcase, which is very similar to this one, this garment bag has a removable compartment specially designed for suits and dresses. Unfortunately, this suitcase is not expandable, so I’m afraid you have to choose between the expandable version and the non-expandable, but more garment friendly version.
This suitcase garment bag can be used as a carry on. Although the dimensions are slightly different from what the manufacturer says, it will fit in the carry on sizer if you push it a little bit and if you do not pack the external pocket full. (The details of the dimension are below.)
This bag is available in black, navy and olive greenish colors and the high-quality 1680 Denial nylon fabric resists wear, moisture, dirt, and abrasion. Because of the 1680 denial fabric, the bag is durable and lightweight at the same time.
The bag has two compartments: one is a garment holder section and one is for the rest of your clothes and accessories. The garment holder section fits 1-2 suits for sure, but if your suits are thin, 3 suits should work as well. The garment bag and main bag unzip separately, which keeps things orderly and also makes it extremely easy to get to a change of clothes quickly. The main compartment has shoe bag slots.
This garment bag features several handy pockets: there’s an outside pocket for frequently used items and inside the bag, there are mesh pockets for toiletries. Also, you can create a hanging shelf by attaching garment bag hook to the exterior of the bag, since the straps will form an angle to create a ‘shelf’ from the packing section, still allowing full access to garments.
Handle and wheels
The handle is made of high-quality aircraft-grade aluminum and stops 4 heights ensuring you to adjust the most comfortable position. The two rolling wheels are rolling smoothly and silently.
Note on the dimensions
According to the manufacturer, the bag measures 9 x 22 x 14 inches and weighs 9 pounds, but if we measure carefully, the bag has slightly different sizes. Instead of 22” tall, the bag is 21.9” tall, and it’s not 14” wide but 13.9” wide. I guess, the manufacturer just rounded up the numbers to make it simpler. Although instead of being 9” deep, in the reality the bag is 9.25” deep if include the outside handle as well. In theory, it can cause problems to use it as a carry on, but to be honest, as long as it fits the sizer, it shouldn’t be a problem at all.
This Travelpro luggage is one of the best rolling carry on garment bags. It’s made of high-quality material, lightweight and ample, and comes with a limited Lifetime Coverage plus trusted companion promise, which covers the cost of repair for damage from airline or other common carriers for 1 year.
Due to the fact that this garment bag is made of a high-quality fabric and covered by a stain-resistant, water-repellent coating, this bag can be your travel mate for a long time. Besides the bag is durable, it completely keeps your clothes wrinkle-free and intact.
The exterior dimensions are 16 x 22 x 8,5 inches and the internal dimensions are 14 x 21.75 x 8.5 inches, which means this bag can be used as a carry on. The bag is designed to meet all the carry on restrictions, so you can travel with an ease of mind.
The bag weighs 8.3 lbs, which means, it is still light, but it’s not the lightest bag on the market. But, as long as you can roll the bag, the weight hardly matters.
