Bento Bag® v 3.0 - Personal Item Bag

Perfect LBB

Compartments, cubbies and cubes, oh my!
You want to be in and out of any airport pronto soooo carry on and a personal bag are the way to go. There are many bags to choose from fir sure. Let’s go with this winner.

This little beauty fits the bill as my personal bag.
Should the airline run out of overhead space and I have to check my carry on I’m carrying two outfits, nightgown and robe, some toiletries, my liquids bag and sandals with room to spare

The bag had padded areas for laptops and/or iPads, shoe bags, cubes for toiletries and such. I’m wowed by the two outside pockets, one on each side. One of these pockets is the sleeve that goes over your luggage handle…what?
It’s perfect for easy access to your docs. and pen.
You could maximize the already generous space with compression cubes. This would be an awesome weekend bag too.

Travel light in spirit and luggage. Enjoy!

Loving my Bento Bag!

After seeing numerous ads for the Bento bag on Instagram, I decided to order one in the Positano Plum colour. I’m Canadian, and I used it this weekend to travel to Prince Edward Island and it was perfect! I love the size, the easy access pockets for the clear liquids bag and the tech pouch, and the front compartment for organizing all your smaller items. It’s great that it’s designed for you to have easy access to the items you need without having to open the whole bag!
The quality is excellent and customer service is awesome! I would definitely recommend this Bento Bag! I’m looking forward to taking it on its first flight in a few weeks. I love how it has a sleeve to go over my carry on luggage and a outer zippered pocket to keep my passport safe and handy!
Thank you Nomad Lane for such a wonderful travel bag!
Happy travelling,
Annette from New Brunswick, Canada

I love it!

Got the bag last week. Purchase was on my bucket list as I saw multiple positive remarks as THE ideal personal ideal bag for ultra low cost airlines.

Open box experience was positive, bag looked impecable. The internal accessories (shoes small bags, cases for toiletries, etc are a nice touch). I put cloths for two days - one jean, a cargo short, and three t-shirts, and everything fit ok.

I was a little concerned that the bag was too big given the marketing pictures I saw on nomad lane website; reality is that it looks actually smaller than the models photography, which is great news.

I haven’t traveled with this yet , but it is beautiful and well designed/organized. I highly recommend it to my friends.

Going to Dublin in style!

I am going to Dublin next week, and I feel like I am ahead of the game with my Bento bag! I am so excited to have it with me. 🙂

Perfect Travel Bag

I am using this bag as we speak on vacation in Orlando. It has been a pleasure! The ease of use is amazing. Love my first new Bento bag! It will not be my last!!

Love this bag!

Very well constructed and intuitively designed. Excited to take it with me on my travels.

Very handy

I just used my bag for my first trip this year. It was very organized for going through TSA. It also fit under my seat perfectly. One of my favorite features is that it opens in the middle like a clam shell. That makes packing much easier.

Great Bag

I’ve always used LULULEMON bags as my carry-on and found them to fit not quite right….excited to use this on my trip to Greece

The design of this carryon bag was well thought out, especially for someone who needs organization. I’m able to travel with a peace of knowing all my necessary items are accounted for and I know which slot/ section in my bag to locate it..
This bag is life changing for someone who travels often.


The Bento Bag is the perfect carry on bag for every occasion. It’s made with high quality materials. Everything has its own spot. I especially love how it zips down the middle into a regular suitcase. You can also access the middle area through a top zipper which is very handy while traveling. The bag comes with a liquids bag, an electronics bag, 2 shoe bags and a dust bag to keep your Bento bag while not using. Oh, it also has a padded area in the center to hold your laptop or iPad. I’m excited to take this bag on our Alaskan adventure!!

Everything I want and need!

I travel often for work (2 weeks out of every month). I needed a new bag and did a lot of research. Then I found The Bento Bag and immediately fell in love. It had everything I need including a key leash. One of the best parts is the top zippers for the electronics bag and toiletry bag so that they are both easily accessible on the plane and going through TSA. Also, it’s such an easy bag to pack because it opens like luggage. Totally worth the investment!

Perfect Bag!

This bag looks exactly as pictured. I watched many videos reviewing this bag and other similar bags from other brands. This bag had exactly the pockets needed for a personal item and the right placement of those pockets. I love that it has some structure to it. And that it completely zips down, for ease of packing. It feels high quality.

I am so excited about my new Nomad Lane Bento Bag. After a lot of research and comparison shopping, I settled on the Bento and I couldn't be happier. So many great features, roomy space for carry on and laptop. Very excited to use on my upcoming trips!

I finally found the bag that I have been looking for! This Bento Bag is amazing, there is so much organization and at the same time so much space. I did not feel like I was stuffing things in and then trying to find something while under the seat in the plane. It truly is my new prized possession!

Awesome Bag!

Used my Bento Bag for the first time last week when I flew from California to Florida and then jumped on a cruise for 5 nights. It was so convenient at the airport to get my laptop and iPad out going through security. I love how I could use it as a second mini suitcase. Highly recommend.

A place for everything

My Bento Bag had its first trip, and I love it. I worried that it really would fit under the seat (on a budget airline), but it did --- without needing to force it. The design is well thought out, with places for everything from bulky (shoes) to easily lost (keys). The bag felt good over my shoulder, and I like the navy and silver combination, too.

Super organized handy travel bag

I took this bag w me on a 12-day trip to Iceland. It kept me extremely organized and was easy to both carry or place on my roller bag. I never check in luggage and was able to pack for all climates w the bento bag and my roller bag.

Love this bag.

I have been looking for a personal bag to carry on trips with me. When I first saw this bag demonstrated by someone on YouTube, I was sold on it. Everything about it meets and exceeds what I wanted and needed in a bag. Very well constructed, with nice heavy duty material. I will be able to use this bag for many years. Thank you for your great customer service too.

Exactly what I wanted

I’ve never been a light packer but with a lot of travel ahead this year I am determined to go carryon only. This under seat bag is amazing. I can’t believe how much I can pack into it while still being able to get to everything I need. And the plum color is gorgeous.

Love the organization

I love this bag. I got compliments on it the first time I used it. It was more than I wanted to pay, but I guess it's worth it for the organization and convenience. But overall, I'm very happy.

Excellent overnight case. Computer/work bag. Brilliant design inside and out. It’s a perfect gift for a birthday, Christmas or for yourself. You will use it.

Cute carry on bag

I was impressed seeing it in person. I have not used it yet. But am a flight attendant and look forward to using it as my carryon bag. I like that its laid out like a suitcase when fully opened. And was quite impressed with all the storage options. I will use it on my next trip in place of the well known name brand beginning with TP that most airline crew use. What I like is the organization that the Bento bag has laid out for you. Its sturdiness yet it is lightweight and also the zippers are easy to zip.
