I travel 2-3 times a month and needed a bigger personal item bag as my Tumi laptop bag just didn’t cut it.
I was a little apprehensive when I first saw the bag as I felt it might be too big for an under the seat bag. However I’ve flown on an a360 and 737 and it fit perfectly underneath the seats.
Very happy with the quality, size and the multiple pockets this bag has to offer.
There are so many pockets everywhere! I love that this personal bag opens like a suitcase. I love the front pocket for easy access of my important documents, keys, passport, etc. It fits all of my essential items: Laptop, Nintendo switch, shoes, clothes, toiletries, medicine, etc. My bag came with some extra goodies: a clear toiletry bag and a bag for chargers. The V4 bag is not super tall so it can fit under the seat in front of you. It has a lot of width so you can fit many items into it. The bag looks and feels professional. I would love to see more neutral cream colors with some gold accents in the future. As of right now, this will be my go to personal travel bag.
This bag is amazing. It takes up so little space but it’s clear it will hold so much. The fact that it opens like a suitcase is genius. I can’t wait to use it on all my trips from weekend getaways to international travel.
I love the v4 Bento Bag!
Plenty of room, well laid out, and easy to use in the airport and plane. It holds a lot and is sturdy. So many options, depending on what you’re packing.
I’ve looked at these bags for years and finally bought one. I used it to travel for a 2 day meeting and it was the only bag I took. Packed 2 pairs of shoes (just flats), 3 full outfits, laptop, toiletries, and several folders. I used it for a work bag during the day without all the clothes and stuff and didn’t find it too bulky. I really like the top pockets and the pouches for liquids and electronics. They are actually useful. I packed it better the second time and am sure that I’ll continue to hone the process. But overall it is a really well made bag that makes sense and packs a lot.
I have been searching for the perfect carry-on under the seat bag to accompany my carry-on luggage since the airlines have lost or delayed luggage this past year. The v4 Bento bag is perfect. I can now carry more without checking a bag! Opening up flat like a suitcase, all the zippers sturdy and the creative way the bag is designed with so many pockets is exactly what I have been looking for. Thank you Nomad Lane!
Excellent fabric and compartments
I just packed for an international trip. I’m thrilled with how much the bag holds and for all the very thoughtful features. I was reluctant to spend so much money but I think this may be the perfect carry on bag!
I recently received my first Bento Bag v4, and I've been pleasantly surprised by its blend of style and practicality.
The bag's design is simple yet stylish, making it suitable for both professional and casual settings. It doesn't shout for attention but exudes a subtle elegance.
What stands out most is the bag's functionality. Its internal compartments are smartly organized, keeping everything in place, whether it's your laptop, tablet, documents, or personal items.
In terms of build quality, the Bento Bag v4 feels solid and well-crafted, instilling confidence in its durability. I did encounter a minor issue with the bag I received, but Nomad Lane's customer service promptly resolved it, showcasing their commitment to customer satisfaction.
In summary, the Bento Bag v4 is a practical and stylish choice. It's not groundbreaking, but it does what it promises well. After this positive experience, I'd certainly consider Nomad Lane for my next bag purchase.
Just what I needed for travel. Practical and chic!
Awesome bag, will be using it soon to travel to Asia!
Love this bag! From its classy look, to all the convenient pockets and storage compartments, this bag has it all. Especially nice that it now has a place on the outside for a water bottle and a pocket for your phone. So very happy with these improvements.
The funny thing is that I learned about the Bento bag through a customer review on a competitor’s website%21 The review said that they liked the competitor’s bag%2C but still loved their bento bag. I had to find out for myself%21 I’m at a point in my life where mediocre luggage doesn’t cut it for me anymore. I had my eye on the bento bag%2C and when the Labor Day special came%2C I jumped on it%21 It’s such a great bag that I even offered to let my husband use it%21%21 I love that it’s sleek%2C holds a lot%2C and is quality%21 Love%21
I am loving packing my new V4 Bento bag. It is all so well thought out. The only feature I question is the size of the liquids bag. I believe I am allowed a quart size liquid bag and the liquid bag included seems smaller than a quart. I could be wrong. I want to be able to bring as many liquids as possible in my overseas carry on. I can't wait to take my trip and try it out in real life.
Very impressed with the quality and thoughtful design of this bag. It will be the "go to bag" for all my future trips. Thanks!
This has been a great bag to travel with amazing storage.
Just used my bag for first time and it more than met my expectations. A place for everything I like to have in a bag that fits under the seat. Could not be more pleased. Am certain I looked at every bag before choosing this one. It is just perfect!
Love the high quality material of this bento bag! It is so cluth for a short trip or used as the best carry on with so much organization! Highly recommended for frequent flyers who want to look style yet functional
The bag is exactly what the website said it was. I love it.
I love the size. I usually fly on smaller regional airlines so now I don’t have to fight for overhead space
Beautiful, well constructed bag that WILL fit under my aisle seat when flying! I’ve purchased other bags that say they’ll fit but they don’t. Love the features of this v4. Gave 4 vs 5 ⭐️ only because I’d prefer the front pocket organization of the v3 for my needs.
I just used my bag on my first trip and it was amazing!
I love the Nomad Lane v4 Bento Bag! It’s a game changer and is perfect for a weekend trip or to use as a personal item. I NEVER check bags and I’ve been using a Tumi Backpack for years as my personal item, but my new Bento Bag has a place for everything and it zips down the middle for full use of every inch of the bag. The included toiletry bag and tech bag add even more value since most other brands charge extra for those. Overall the bag is beautiful, functional, and sleek. If you’re on the fence, buy it now. You won’t regret it.
I needed a simple, chic and functional bag that would fit under an airplane seat and/or small enough to throw in the backseat on the floor of a car/trunk. I also wanted it to be a bag that opened up like a suitcase, had a luggage handle slot, optional shoulder strap, laptop pocket, and water bottle pocket. This bag had all of that PLUS 2 small cubes i could use for toiletries or electronics. The bonus of being able to access the inner pockets from 2 openings is also a HUGE bonus. Well designed product for sure. Yes, it is a premium priced item, but i haven't found anything else like it that is made with high quality materials. Well worth the price in my opinion, especially for those random 1 night trips where you need to throw everything in ONE bag.
Recently purchased the Bento Bag V4 and love it. It was perfect size for weekend trip and about to test it out as a personal item bag. Could not be happier with this product.
